October contests, events, releases, etc.
HAPPY OCTOBER! Well, technically it's not October yet on the west coast, but I have more time to create this post tonight instead of tomorrow. Here's a smattering of contests, events, and releases to help usher in the month of Halloween.
PINOCCHIO: VAMPIRE SLAYER CONTEST: Enter to win one of THREE autographed copies of Van Jensen's soon-to-be-released graphic novel right here on Suburban Vampire!
1. Winners must be from the U.S. and Canada only due to shipping costs.
2. To enter, in the comments section of my interview with Van Jensen, answer the following question: If you were casting a movie version of PINOCCHIO: VAMPIRE SLAYER, which actor/actress would you choose for the voice of Van Jensen's stake-wielding, vampire-slaying version of Pinocchio?
The deadline: Tuesday, October 13, 8:00 AM Pacific Time.
NICOLE HADAWAY'S RELEASE CONTEST: On Thursday, October 1st, the first five commentors on Nicole Hadaway's blog (http://nicole-hadaway.blogspot.com) to correctly guess her favorite vampire movie (which they should know if they've read the Suburban Vampire interview of her) will get a free .pdf version of Release.
