Finding Nicholas Contest!

Finding Nicholas Contest! … and previous contest winner announced!

Hi guys!

Well, if you have read one of the Imprinted Souls books, you know that Nicholas is a very unique character. In fact, if you don’t know him, you can get an idea by reading a character interview that Nicholas did for the Between the Covers blog.

Anyway, his uniqueness makes it very difficult to find someone that could be portrayed as Nicholas.

So, here is the contest:

All you have to do is find someone who could be Nicholas... BUT, it has to be either from a stock photo website (such as iphotostock, fotolia, etc) or you can draw him (must be original work done by you). E-mail the picture's website link (or drawing) to daniele.lanzarotta@gmail.com. Please add "Finding Nicholas Contest" to the subject line.
I will make the top 3 potential Nicholas' available for voting on the blog and Facebook on March 2nd. Entries should be submitted by March 1st!


The prize?

Same as the last contest!

***Winner will get…

Teen Literacy Campaign!

Hi everyone!

It has been a very busy couple of weeks with the Divine Ashes release coming up!

I did however want to write a very quick blog post to share this exciting news… After receiving emails from a couple of schools, I put together a campaign to help promote teen literacy. It may not be a lot, but anything helps.

Starting today, for every 10 Imprinted Souls Series eBooks sold through Kindle or Nook, I will be donating one paperback copy of one of my novels to high schools in low income areas, or areas that may not exactly be low income but that were impacted by loss of jobs, etc. I’m also taking suggestions on schools that could use support in that area, so just email, FB, or Tweet the name of any school that you would like to be added to this list.

Divine Ashes - Chapter 1 Sneak Preview

Chapter 1

Divine Ashes (Imprinted Souls Series, #3)

Making a deal with Scarlett had probably been one of the most stupid things I had ever have done in my life; yet, that had been the only way to save both Tyler and Matt.

That night, after I made the deal that whether human or vampire would eventually result in me being Scarlett’s property, we all left her home, the basement of one of the oldest libraries in Manhattan.

As we left, we were escorted by none other than Nicholas.

Scarlett did keep her word, she allowed all of us to leave, including Matt, who had been my boyfriend when he was human, and once turned into a vampire, had become his maker’s favorite minion. Although Scarlett let us go, she also imposed conditions with which I had no leverage. One of them being that Nicholas was to be in charge of Matt, which translated to her being in charge of him, but from a distance.

Nicholas had betrayed me in more than one way. I was even foolish enough to hope that maybe he was putting…
