Giveaway: "An Embarrasment of Riches".

Today, once again VampirePhile has the pleasure of hosting author Chelsea Quinn Yarbro, this time in a contest for a giveaway of 2 copies of her latest in the vampire Count Saint-Germain Chronicles: An Embarrassment of Riches. In past guest post and interview Chelsea has introduced us to Count Saint-Germain, and now:

More than two decades strong, the Saint-Germain cycle is one of the most compelling works of dark fantasy and horror of our age. Historically accurate, often involving key events or figures from throughout world history, these deeply emotional novels have a devoted readership. Each novel is written as a stand-alone and they are not chronologically consecutive, so readers may enter the saga with any book and move backward or forward in time as they choose, from Pharaonic Egypt to Paris in the 1700s, from the fall of the Roman Empire to World War II Europe.

In An Embarrassment of Riches, the vampire Count finds himself a virtual prisoner in the Court of Kunigunde in Bohemia in the 1200s. Rakoczy Ferncsi, as Saint-Germain is known, passes his days making jewels to delight Queen Kunigunde and trying not to become involved in the Court's intrigues. In this, the vampire fails. Handsome, apparently wealthy, and obviously unmarried, he soon finds himself being sexually blackmailed by Rozsa, an ambitious lady-in-waiting. If he does not satisfy her, she will denounce him to the priests and he'll be burned at the stake, resulting in his True Death. Despite his care, the vampire makes more than one enemy at the Bohemian Court, and by the end of An Embarrassment of Riches, the Count can see only one road to freedom...through death.


Two lucky winners, selected at random, will each receive a copy of An Embarrassment of Riches

To enter and qualify for a chance to win, leave a comment in response to: Who is your favourite vampire and why?

Contest open until this Friday, 18th March, to US and Canada entries only. If commenting anonymously please remember to include a name and an email address to qualify.
