"Being a vampire has never looked so fun! A hilarious novel with plenty of colorful characters; MIDNIGHT BRUNCH will make you an instant Marta Acosta fan."
-Fresh Fiction
The correct date for my one-day giveaway of Midnight Brunch at Casa Dracula is all day Monday, May 6, and I deeply apologize for any confusion, frustration, cursing and shaking one's fist at the sky, etc.  The giveaway is at Amazon. This new Kindle edition has a bonus feature -- Milagro's own version of her history and how she came to be at Casa Dracula!

Here's the summary:
Horror story writer/gardener/party girl Milagro De Los Santos thinks she's well on her way to becoming the sincere and serious person she knows she should be. She's in a serious relationship with a fabulous man, Oswald Grant, MD, and living at his wine country ranch with his career-fixated relatives. It's true that Oswald accidentally infected her with the rare family condition that makes them crave blood cocktails and need protection from the sun, but what family doesn't have it's quirks?

She thought they accepted her, so she's hurt when she's excluded from a midnight ceremony with special guests including a creepy family elder, Oswald's hostile parents, and Milagro's ex-lover, decadent and powerful Ian Ducharme.

When Milagro's life is threatened, she flees to the desert to hide and work on a screenplay. Instead of solitude, she encounters an egomaniacal actor, a partying socialite, a sly tabloid reporter, and a lavish spa full of dark secrets. It's all lots of fun until the bwaa-ha-ha laughter and the knives come out. Now all Milagro has to do is finish her screenplay, ambush a world domination movement, and overcome a terrible infection before she can make her way back to Casa Dracula.
Get your free read of this book that the Romantic Times called "hilarious" and Publishers Weekly called "an addictive combo plate of romance and vamp satire."

This is the second book in the Casa Dracula series, but I think the bonus feature can catch a new reader right up. And if you've already read the books, I think you'll enjoy this brand new short piece.

The contest starts Monday morning, May 6, just when you need something fun and summery to entertain you, and runs through midnight, so be sure to get your copy and share the link with your friends, too!
