The Flint, MI Vampire Ball 2009

Calling All Vampire Authors, Publishers, PR people for Vampire Authors, and Publicists for Vampire and Paranormal Authors (Also Calling Any Vampire Artisans and Craftspeople who would like to donate products)


Hello all vampire authors (and your reps) would you be interested in donating a copy or two of your vampire/paranormal books (or your clients books, signed if possible) and perhaps some other promotional items (T-shirts, hats, bookmarks, keychains, etc) to the Flint 2009 Vampire Ball to be used as prizes.

The Vampire Ball is a charity event that raises funds for the Flint Farmers Market. This is its second year.

As you may know Flint, MI is an area that has been hit the hardest by the poor economy especially since we are "Vehicle City", the center of GM and the auto industry. Sure the corporate offices are in Detroit (which gets all the media attention) but most of the factories are in and around Flint, factories that now sit empty as do many homes and businesses.

Flint is an area that once employed over 80,000 workers in the automotive industry but now employs less than 1,000. Our unemployment rates are one of the highest in the country as are foreclosure rates. Entire neighborhoods are becoming ghost towns.

One of the remaining gems in Flint is our fabulous Farmer's Market which provides local farmers a place to sell their goods. This year will be the second annual Vampire Ball and we are hoping to make it bigger and better than last year's event.

It would be wonderful if you could donate a signed copy of your book to be offered as part of a prize pack.

So far MaryJanice Davidson, Jeaniene Frost, Madelyn Alt, Angela Knight, Marta Acosta, Lynda Hilburn, Kerrelyn Sparks, Michele Hauf, Cecilia Tan, Susan Blexrud, Margaret Tanner, Kristin Battestella, JJ Keller, Kiki Howell, Cornelia Amiri, Dawne Dominique, Lisa Lane, Nina Pierce, Myristica, Cinsearae Santiago (Mistress Rae), Angela Daniels, Jean Roberta, and myself are all donating copies of a couple of our books (I'm also pitching in a Fang-tastic Books t-shirt, hat and tote bag along with Blood Ties Season One DVD set and a copy of Barely Bewitched by Kimberly Frost).

Most print authors are donating signed copies while ebook authors are donating pdfs to be compiled on CD. Some authors are also sending along promo goodies like postcards, bookmarks, pins, keychains, and t-shirts.

Kaitlyn from Penguin Books sent a copy of Undead and Unwelcome by Mary Janice Davidson and Dead if I Do by Tate Halloway, Danielle from Sourcebooks sent three copies of Mr. Darcy, Vampyre by Amanda Grange and Paula (PR person) is supposed to send a couple Charlaine Harris books our way.

The ball is October 24, 2009, if you are planning on being anywhere near Flint please come join us. Tickets can be purchased in advance at http://www.vertigotheatrics.com/. Purchase them early because last year the Ball was sold out.

We are also looking for authors who would like to attend the Ball and sign their books for guests. If you are interested in joining us and setting up a table to sell and sign your books (we would be so thrilled to have you) please contact Ilona Curry at ilonacurry@hotmail.com she is handling all entertainment and promotions for the ball.

I plan to be at the ball this year selling and signing some of my books (if I can find something amazing to wear). It would be great to have some other authors there as well. This will be my first signing and I have no idea what to expect. I am a very shy person and I am already having anxiety attacks over this (I prefer to work behind the scenes, not in the spotlight) I would love to have some other authors their for moral support. :-)

Last year Colleen Gleason, Michigan author of the Gardella Vampire Chronicles, was at the ball selling and signing her books.

If you are interested in donating any books or promo items they can be mailed to me (contact me directly for address). Just be sure to include a note that the books or other items are for the Vampire Ball.

Any donations are greatly appreciated.

Hi Everyone,This was how me and my Boyfriend became VAMPIRES. I got a guy from the internet called Mr. Smith who was a VAMPIRE so i told him that me and my boyfriend would love to become VAMPIRES so he asked me of my Name ,Country, Age ,State , address and asked me to pay the sum of $750 to send me his blood which i did immediately and in the next 3 days i got the blood sample through the DHL which me and my boyfriend took in the blood into our body and in the next 30 minutes we turned into a VAMPIRE so if you are interested in becoming a VAMPIRE. FIrST: Vampires is not at all like in the movies or books, Sure. I understand. You are young; you have the whole world open to you. You can be anything that you choose if you apply yourself and try hard to work toward that goal. But being a vampire is not what it seems like. It’s a life full of good, and amazing things. We are as human as you are.. It’s not what you are that counts, but how you choose to be. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity? contact the vampires creed today via email: vampires.evilspirit@gmail.com
