I’m really excited to be part of Nancy Holder & Debbie Viguié’s tour for their latest release, Damned! I was given the task to organize a contest (not a simple giveaway!) for a copy of the book, and I think I found something accessible to all =)
You will have to write a Haiku inspired by Crusade or Damned, but fear not, if you haven’t read them yet, their description will inspire you I’m pretty sure!
Now what’s a Haiku?
It’s a short three-lines poem respecting a 5 syllables first line – 7 syllables second line– 5 syllables third line form. The real Haiku is a bit more complicated than that, but we’ll keep it simple.
Here’s an example of a vampire themed Haiku:
Sexy and lonesome
Ready to pounce it’s prey
Ok, ok, it’s not very good. I’m sure you’ll do much better!
Here’s a bite more about both books in the series to give you a bit of inspiration!
The ultimate battle. The ultimate love.
For the past two years, Jenn has lived and trained at Spain's Sacred Heart Academy Against the Cursed Ones. She is among the few who have pledged to defend humanity or die trying. But the vampires are gaining power, and the battle has only just begun.
Forced to return home after death takes a member of her family, Jenn discovers that San Francisco is now a vampire strong-hold. As a lone hunter apart from her team, Jenn is isolated—and at risk. She craves the company of her fighting partner, Antonio: his protection, his reassurance, his touch. But a relationship with Antonio comes with its own dangers, and the more they share of themselves, the more Jenn stands to lose.
Then Jenn is betrayed by one who was once bound to protect her, causing her to doubt all she had held as true. To survive, Jenn must find the courage to trust herself—and her heart.
There is a fine line between love and sacrifice….
Antonio would do anything for his beloved fighting partner Jenn. He protects her, even suppresses his vampire cravings to be with her. Together, they defend humanity against the Cursed Ones. But tensions threaten to fracture their hunting team and his loyalty—his love—is called into question.
With an even more sinister power on the rise, Jenn must overcome her personal vendettas.
Antonio and Jenn need each other to survive, but evil lurks at every turn. With humanity’s fate hanging in the balance, they must face down the darkness…or die trying.
Now you want to know the prize don’t you? One (1) winner will get a copy of Damned!
