In my upcoming novel The Vampire, The Witch & The Werewolf 2: Chains of Silver, Nick Stake bartends at Club Blood in New Orleans, a wannabe fang-banger hangout that some creatures of the night use as feeding grounds. As a vampire hunter, Nick earns tips along with identifying his targets.
With Halloween literally right around the weekend, one of my favorite activities is researching new themed-related drinks. Last year, I made Witches Brew, and had a mini nightmare trying to buy dry ice to get that cool fog effect.
Chains of Silver features Club Blood’s “signature” martini, Vampire’s Kiss, and this one isn’t a sexy sliding of the teeth into a willing, warm neck. The drink consists of chilled vodka, champagne and Chambord, a black raspberry liquor that adds that blood-red tone. On Saturday, I’m hosting a poker night – complete with a Halloween costume contest for the attendees’ kids – and I plan on serving up some delectable cocktails (photos to come!).
Have a favorite spooky drink? Share and leave an email address, and I’ll send you a goody bag filled with: Gummy Vampires or Gummy Werewolves, a “baby” that can be found in King Cakes from New Orleans, and other assorted goodies. Plus, one lucky "grand-prize" commenter will win a $10 gift certificate to Ravenous Romance. Hopefully, you'll save it for my Chains of Silver release! (Hint. Hint!)
This weekend, I’ll be blog-hopping all around. Join me and a host of other writers for the Romance Girls Gone Goblin Halloween Blog Hop (try saying that five times fast after a few Vampire’s Kisses! Other parties include the TRS Spookapalooza, which is giving away a Nook!, the Whipped Cream blog, where I’ll be “visiting” on Saturday, and the Goddess Fish Party Pavilion.
Have a delightfully fun – and safe – Halloween weekend!
