Vampire's Assistant Giveaway!

Okay, I'm sure you've seen this all over the place. Well, I'm involved too! First and foremost, I'm sure you've noticed the widget at the top of my blog. Here's your chance to vote for your favorite Cirque du Freak t-shirt saying! Just cast your vote and every vote on my blog gives me a change to win an iPod! Help me win and get some great t-shirts out!

I have to say that I only support contests for books that I totally support. And I totally support anything that involves Cirque du Freak. And I'm really excited for the movie to come out!

In theaters October 23

Cirque Du Freak: The Vampire’s Assistant, based on the popular series of books by Darren Shan, is a fantasy-adventure about a teenager who unknowingly breaks a 200-year-old truce between two warring factions of vampires. Pulled into a fantastic life of misunderstood sideshow freaks and grotesque creatures of the night, one teen will vanish from the safety of a boring existence and fulfill his destiny in a place drawn from nightmares.

CIRQUE DU FREAK has been rated PG-13 (Parents Strongly Cautioned - Some Material May Be Inappropriate for Children Under 13) for sequences of intense supernatural violence and action, disturbing images, thematic elements and some language.

THE VAMPIRE'S ASSISTANT and Other Tales from the Cirque du Freak by Darren Shan

New movie edition features the first three books--Cirque Du Freak, The Vampire's Assistant, and Tunnels of Blood-- bound up in one volume!

Do you love to be scared? Then don't miss the terrifying adventure that begins when Darren and his best friend, Steve, get tickets to the CIRQUE DU FREAK, a wonderfully bizarre and creepy freak show. Brace yourself for thrills and chills as the boys witness a parade of grotesque creatures and face their deepest fears by entering the darkest world of the vampire. In the blood-curdling tradition of Anne Rice and Stephen King, CIRQUE DU FREAK will have you shrieking for the next horror show!

Hmm...interesting question. I would either be a fortune teller or maybe the rubber-band woman (the really flexible ones...may not be the right name).

I would choose to be the 'rubber man'(since I have back trouble it sounds heavenly to be all limber lol)
Then AGAIN, I might rather be the extremely gorgeous, hot sensual dark gypsy-type fortune teller (especially if I could fortell the winning lottery numbers - for ME)
