Happy Thanksgiving!

Congratulations to Jo-Ann Larkin for winning the signed copy of How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire! Please contact me at kerry@kerrelynsparks.com so I can get your mailing info. Many thanks to everyone for leaving such wonderful comments. I'll be back on Dec. 25th, Christmas Day, to give away more books!

When all of us Supernatural Undergrounders were picking days to blog, I randomly selected the 25th of each month, not realizing I would land on Thanksgiving. You're probably busy visiting with family and/or friends and wrestling with a turkey and mounds of food. (I am, too!) So let's keep this short and sweet--

I wish to thank all those who read my books. When the first book released in 2005, only two books were under contract, and it could have ended there. But you discovered the books and liked them! It wasn't till I started writing the third book that I realized I had an actual series going, and that was when we named it the Love at Stake series. Thanks to you, the series has continued, and the tenth book will be released next March! I am so grateful to you all! Please take time out of your busy day to leave a comment, and I'll pick someone at random to win a signed copy of the book that started it all-- How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire.

And may you and your family have a blessed Thanksgiving!

Keep up the good work, Kerrelyn. We're all excited about Conner's book and can't wait for March to come (though we'll do our best to be patient). "How to Marry..." will always be a fav.
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! Hope you all eat well and sleep good ;).

It was so nice to find other paranormal romance books out there that I could enjoy after getting hooked on the concept when movies and certain tv shows hit the screens. I have always had a fascination of all things "vampy" and your books have filled all my fantasies and more. Thank you and keep writing!!!!

Hi, Happy Thanksgiving. I really hope I win your book. I used to have most of the series, but then I was stranded here in Oregon with my 10 month old son. A few months ago someone broke into the house we were renting there and all our stuff was stolen. Even the baby's stuff an the few hundred books I had collected. Now I only have 9 books one of which is Eat Prey Love. Have a great day and thank you for your time. Hopefully some day I'll be sending you an autographed copy of one of my stories, if I can finish them and get them published.

Hi Kerrelyn!

Thanks for the amazing books. I have read all of them and I'm anxiously waiting for Connor's happy ending. Whatever mood I find myself in, I can reread your books and always end up feeling amazing and empowered.

Please don't EVER stop writing your awesome books. A lot of people would suffer from manic depression if you do...myself included!

Hope you enjoy the holidays.

Hi,

I just wanted to share with you how much I enjoy your books. I've read all of them. (I've read my favorites twice.)
I'm a huge fan of Lynsay Sands so I gave your books a try based on her recommendation and I'm so glad I did!
My favorites are How to marry a millionaire vampire and Be still my vampire heart. I truly love your books and find them heartwarming and laugh out loud funny!
I'm looking forward to your next story. I read on Facebook its going to be Connor's story Vampire Mine. Super excited! I hope he falls for a mortal!

Thanks for all your amazing stories, you are terrific!

Pat Cochran said...

Oh, I am so full! It's going to take several days to get past all
the good food I've ingested today!
I keep saying that I will not eat
as much, yet it happens again each
holiday. After lunch the twenty of
us chose a variety of activities:
football for the men, conversation for the women, games for the young
adults, and the playroom for the
youngsters. Separate yet together.
We are blessed!

Meg said...

As a reader (and a writer) I'm grateful for your stories to keep me entertained and give me an escape from the stresses of life. Thank you for your time, efforts, and your storytelling abilities. I hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving celebrations as much as I did.

We do not celebrate Thanksgiving in my country but I hope everyone who did had a fantastic day.

heidi330 said...

Happy Thanksgiving!!!
I hope everyone has a great day with friends and family!!!
Your series is what made me want to write again. I had lost faith and writing and when I picked up yur book in 2005 I was hooked and saw a lot of hope in what I like writing, super paranormal stories with lots of humor mix in. A lot of people told me it wouldn't sell but you made it possible. I thank you and please i hope you can keep the series going for a long time. It truly is one of the greatest.
Have a Blessed thanksgiving Day..

Kim said...

I just wanted to leave a note to say thanks. Your books are fun reads and a necessary part of my normally stressful life. They are my escape. My travel buddies, as I am always always on a plane. I can't tell you how excited I was to find out Connor would finally get a book. He's my favorite. I have recently shared my (your)books with a friend. She has now stolen your entire series from me. I told her she will need to purchase the next one herself. Thanks again and I hope you have a wonderful holiday season.
Regards

Jennifer said...

Hey Kerrelyn, and Happy Thanksgiving to you also. One of the many things I'm thankful this yr is having great books. I'm a big reader and so enjoy your series. It has everything. Action, romance, and humor. I'm reading Eat, Prey, Love now. Keep up the great work. I very much look forward to your future books.

Jennifer

Teresa K. said...

Thanks Kerry,

For all the great writing you put into your books. I the amazing and dumb person went out at 12:00 this morning to get in line at Wally world for a 5:00 black Friday item.
I wouldn't do it if it wasn't so important to get my college son a new laptop. This was the craziest scene I ever had ever been in.
Actuals fights in the store over items.
I hope to never be in a mess like that again. However I saw a copy of Love, Eat, Prey on the shelf and lost my self in the wait time.

Thanks for passing my time. Love to you and your family doing the busy holiday times. P.S. Got the laptop and because they screwed up got the 400.00 one for a little over 200.

Lisa R/alterlisa said...

WooHoo! A wonderful series, hope there are at least another 10 in this series.

Beastly said...

Yes, thanks Kerrelyn for giving us such a great series, and letting us travel to a world of mystery and love.

Susan said...

Kerrelyn you have written the BEST books on Vampires! I have ordered on Amazon 4 times now "How to marry a Million Vampire" because trying to explain it to my friends they wanted to read it also. Were all Black Comedy Buffs, thus they are hooked on you also, and now are fans of you also! Hope you had a pleasant Thanksgiving and was surprised to learn Seattle had so little snow. Living in the midwest (Nebraska) we have alternating the last 10 yrs between dry Christmas's and snow a couple of feet deep. So hopefully Seattle soon gets back to normal.
