The Dougal Countdown Begins!

Congratulations to Margie of Texas for winning this month's contest! Please come back August 25th for my next post and contest! And many thanks to all you who left a comment!

First, before I get started on Dougal, I'd like to thank the readers who came to see me in Atlanta at the giant booksigning. I'm posting a few photos here. I'd also like to thank those who took a small vacation from the Vamps and followed me into the American Revolution. Less than a Gentleman is getting great reviews! Thank you so much!  The print edition will release August 6th. If you want a print copy, you'll need to order it online or contact Katy Budget Books, where I can sign one to you personally. The contact info for KBB is on the historical page of my website, www.kerrelynsparks.com.

Now on to Dougal!  That's Dougal Kincaid, the sexy Scottish vampire in a kilt who will star in the next Love at Stake book, The Vampire with the Dragon Tattoo. It releases August 27th! The excerpt will be up soon on my website. If you haven't entered the contest there, what are you waiting for?  Ten winners in August will receive a signed copy of Wild About You, plus a signed coverflat of The Vampire with the Dragon Tattoo. Also in August, Dougal will make a personal appearance on the I Smell Sheep blog.  On August 13th, don't miss the debut of the Red Carpet Premiere Video for Dougal's book. Most of his friends will walk the red carpet, and of course, Dougal and his heroine will be the honored guests!  The video will debut on the USA Today Happy Ever After blog. I'll be posting links to the video and Dougal's interview, so keep an eye on my Facebook pages, Twitter, and newsletter posts. The launch party for The Vampire with the Dragon Tattoo will take place on August 27th at Katy Budget Books. Contact them if you'd like me to sign a copy for you.



Now for today's contest!  I'll be giving away a print copy of the anthology Vampires Gone Wild, plus another book, Vampire Mine!  Why? Because Vampire Mine stars Connor, who just happens to be the Vamp who transformed Dougal after the Battle of Culloden. You'll get to see what good friends they are in The Vampire with the Dragon Tattoo.  Just leave a comment to be entered in the contest. International entries are welcomed. Good luck!

First book I read in the series was 'All I want for Christmas is a vampire' and when I found out it was in a series I flipped out. I read it around Christmas 2012 and since then I've read the rest aside from anthology stories. I love these books and devour them. My calendar is marked for the release of Vampire with the Dragon Tattoo. I can't wait!
