The Line releases as a single story for early orders this Friday. 12/20!
Rafael Schiller, vampire and sexual god without peer, believes himself the top of the food chain, until a bizarre creature feeding in an alley scares the deathless hell out of him.
Just a teensy bit excited about this one - my first individual release with Totally Bound. To celebrate, I figure a little contest is in order. :)
As you'll see throughout the story, Rafi's developed ten rules for himself, sort of a collection of things he's learned over the years. The hard way. He calls them How To Safely Navigate Vampirism.
Now - I don't specifically spell out all ten rules in the story, but I thought It would be nice for my readers to see all ten of them. Problem is, I only have nine.
So here's the deal. Please leave your suggestions for Rule Number Ten in the comments below, keeping in mind that Rafi is kinda snarky and sarcastic. On Friday, 12/20, I'll have my impartial panel of judges pick the best one. (Don't forget to leave me some kind of contact info.)
Best Rule Number Ten gets $10.00 in All Romance eBucks. :)
The Nine Rules we have so far:
How To Safely Navigate Vampirism
Rule Number One: Don’t even think about love. Love is for humans and fools.
Rule Number Two: Do not get involved with other predators.
Rule Number Three: Don’t fall asleep in the sun. It won’t kill you, but take my word for it—you’ll regret it.
Rule Number Four: When three neighbors ask how you stay so young, it’s time to move.
Rule Number Five: Always lick your plate clean and don’t leave a mess behind.
Rule Number Six: Don’t feed from crazies. It borrows trouble and they don’t tend to taste too great.
Rule Number Seven: Meals should always be takeout. That is, you should take the meal out. Don’t let any meal see where you sleep.
Rule Number Eight: Vampires are the top of the food chain. Don’t let another predator scare you.
Rule Number Nine: Do not get tied down to an income source. If it can’t move with you on a pitchfork-and-torch-mob second’s notice, then it’s not the career for you.
Have fun with it and good luck!
