Become A Character Contest!!!


Become A Character Contest!!!



Who wants to become a character in my next Immortalis Series Novella!

Ladies, ladies, ladies. You all know you secretly love the dark and brooding vampire, Nicholas. He’s been so lonely for so long and only you can fill the void in his heart and bring a smile to his face.

While this is not actually Nicholas, this is how I have always pictured him in my head. Very similar to the sexy  Aussie, Eric Bana. 


Here are the contest rules and regs:

Enter to be written as a character in my book. I'll create your character using your name, description and personality 
(I'll send over a questionnaire, etc. to find out all about you!)

The winner will get:

* A prominent role in the new book as Nicholas’s potential new mate.
* The ability to read the book before it's released to the public.
* Added to the Acknowledgments page of the book.
* An Interview on my blog (http://katiesalidas.com) and the Publisher’s blog (http://risingsignbooks.net)

To enter, you can simply comment on this blog post telling me why you love Nicholas. To get more entries, you can do the following:

* Leave a comment on this blog post (+ 1 point)

* Follow my blog (+ 1 point)

* Follow me on Twitter (@quixotickatie) (+ 1 point)

* Tweet about the contest (+ 1 point)

Sample Tweet: (Copy and paste)
Back off ladies, Nicholas is my man! I'm going to become a character in the next Immortalis novel by @QuixoticKatie! http://t.co/A37d65p2

Please don't leave the first sentence in the blog post--just mention that you purchased the book and email me separately!)

Do all of the above and you'll earn an extra 5 bonus points! Just mention in your blog comment how many points you earned (and how you earned those points). A sample comment could look like this:

Hey, Katie, I want to be Nicholas’s mate!!!! I have a total of 8 points for commenting on your blog, friending you on Facebook, tweeting about your contest and purchasing your book!

This contest is open until October 31st 2012 with the winner announced on November 3rd 2012!

Hi Katie! I would be thrilled to be Nicholas' mate! I believe I have 7 points, 1 for commenting, 1 for following your blog, and one for each book I have purchased.(I already emailed you) What I like best about Nicholas is his logic, his loyalty, and his wonderfully sarcastic sense of humor. Thank you so much for this chance to be a part of your awesome series!

I love Eric Bana. I fell in love with him when he was in The Time Travelers Wife. I knew he was in it and when I read the book first I pictured him of course. The movie was not as good as the book, but with Eric in it made up for cutting out parts.
This is a new series for me. Going to go out and get the first book and try it out.
