What is "Vampire Books for Blood?"
Author Scott Burtness created the Vampire Books for Blood event in 2014. It's held annually from October 1st through to the 31st.
The event brings vampire book authors together for a shared goal: to raise money for the American Red Cross and Canadian Blood Services.
Participating authors each pledge to donate at a portion of their sales of their book(s) during the month of October to the American Red Cross or Canadian Blood Services. Each author has an individual agreement with the Red Cross or Canadian Blood Services and makes an individual donation at the end of the event.
The "Vampire Books for Blood" event website allows readers to easily browse and find books from participating authors. By purchasing a participating author's book, a reader knows that a portion of the proceeds will be donated by the author to the American Red Cross or Canadian Blood Services.
Please support this wonderful cause by purchasing (during the month of October), a copy of Beautiful Monster - The Exchange (Book One) or any of the other books showcased on the Vampire Books for Blood blog.
Beautiful Monster - The Exchange (Book One) is the story of Lev Baronovsky, a soulless creature of the night and his predicament. The love of his life, a mortal, has just died and in three days will pass to the other side. Without a soul, Lev cannot cross over with her and the thought of spending eternity without his beloved is unbearable. Is seventy-two hours enough time to find a way?
With the help of his brother, they must find the only one who can help - the vilest creature of all, Boris. But Boris has selfish plans of his own.
Beautiful Monster can be found on Amazon here.
ON A PERSONAL NOTE: if it was not for Canadian Blood Services, I would have died in 1982. When I was a teenager, I had a bad reaction to a prescription for tonsillitis and began to bleed internally. My platelet count was so low, the doctors were certain I was going to bleed from my brain. They prepared my family for the worst. However, God had different plans for me. The biggest reason for my survival was because of the two blood transfusions I was given. I am honoured to give back to the organization that played a huge part in saving my life.
Even if you don't purchase Beautiful Monster please consider making a donation to Canadian Blood Services or The American Red Cross.
It's in you to give!
