Character Christmas wishlists (and international giveaway)


What's Santa bringing our favorite characters?We’re feeling the holiday spirit here at Vampire Book Club. Family’s in town. There are delicious foods in the kitchen.

To add to our Christmas celebration, we asked some of our favorite authors to share what goodies would top their characters’ wishlists. Some are practical, others hilarious. All will make you smile this Christmas Eve.

Nicole Peeler on JANE TRUE

1) New Converse
2) Gift certificate to Read it and Weep
3) A panini press to make tuna melts
4) The affections of a certain, hardheaded barghest.

Get the books: Tempest Rising, Tracking the Tempest and Tempest’s Legacy

Carolyn Crane on JUSTINE JONES

For Christmas, Justine wants SO BADLY for her father to promise to come to her upcoming wedding. He is a total germ freak and almost never leaves his house. It would mean so much to her if he said he would go, but she has told him he can’t wear his biohazard suit or level four respirator to the wedding. He has to dress like a normal person. So it’s a little iffy…

Get the books: Mind Games and Double Cross

Firelight by Sophie JordanSophie Jordan on JACINDA

What would top Jacinda’s (FIRELIGHT) wishlist?

That’s simple. WILL!!

Get the book: Firelight

Jeannie Holmes on ALEX and VARIK

Only two things top the wish lists for my characters. Alex would want the corruption charges against her to be dropped and the upcoming FBPI inquiry to go away. Varik would wish for the same but add having Alex accept her engagement ring again and agree to marry him.

Get the book: Blood Law

Jason Henderson on ALEX VAN HELSING

I think Alex Van Helsing would probably get a lot of use out of two things: 1) a pair of light-weight night-vision goggles, light enough to pass for sunglasses, that included infrared so that they could pick up a cold vampire against the evening air, and also 2) a gift certificate good for a couple of hours with a therapist or some other similarly well-trained person, not for therapy or anything but just to give him advice on which of the various women in his life he should be paying the most attention to. Because that stuff is deadly.

And, now, because we can’t give our favorite characters a little something, we have a contest — AN INTERNATIONAL CONTEST — for you. We know the Winter Book Preview giveaways are mostly limited to those living in the U.S. and Canada. To make it up to our fabulous international readers, we’re going to give one person any book featured in the 2011 Winter Book Preview (see the full list of authors/books here). You get to pick one book, we’ll pre-order it. The only caveat is that the Book Depository must ship to your location.

John Cusack or archdemon Jerome?

John Cusack or Georgina Kincaid's boss and archdemon Jerome?

So, what do you have to do to earn a chance at your pick of awesome titles like Shadowfever, The Iron Witch and This Side of the Grave?

To enter: In a comment below, tell us what gift you’d get for one of your favorite book characters.

It doesn’t have to be the main character. (I’d probably pick some kitschy John Cusack thing for Jerome from the Georgina Kincaid series.)

1. You must leave a comment answering the question above.
2. This contest is only open to anyone in the world. (International readers, rejoice!)
3. Contest is closes at 11:59 p.m. CST on Saturday, Jan 1, 2011.
4. The winner will be selected using Random.org and announced on Jan 2. Then they will be contacted via email and given 48 hours to claim their prizes. If we do not hear from the winner(s) within that time, new winner(s) will be selected.
6. Entrants must be at least 13 years old, or have their parent’s permission to enter this contest. Please review our privacy policy, if you have any questions as to how Vampire Book Club uses your information. (Short version: we’ll only use it to contact you for this contest.)
7. Though unlikely, Vampire Book Club has the right to change or cancel any giveaway at any time without prior notice.

    I would give Kara Gillian from Mark of the Demon a weekend of uninterrupted sleep and once she awoke a descent meal.

    She is seriously lacking in both.

    Though she does have a hot FBI agent and demigod chasing her!!

  8. Kira says:

    I would get Rose Hathaway (Vampire Academy) her own special set of silver stakes. Renowned chefs get their own set of knives for slicing and dicing, why not have your own special stakes for scraping and stabbing?

  9. Jamie Lea says:

    I would buy Timmie (from the Night Huntress Series)the Men in Black movies, a stand up poster of Will Smith in his alien killing suit, and an alien killing suit just for Timmie, complete with his own sunglasses. Let’s just hope he doesn’t have to protect the innocent against giant cockroaches or crazy alien women with a crazy long tongue and nasty rope things that shoot from her fingers.

  10. elaing8 says:

    Claire (Morganville) more stakes or science books,Eve skull and crossbow earrings.Shane and Michael some xbox games.

  12. Mel says:

    I would give Spade from the Night Huntress series some boxer shorts to sleep in. Only for Cat’s benefit, I personally wouldn’t mind! 🙂

    I would like to win This side of the grave.

  13. Fi-Chan says:

    I would give Becky Bloomwood gift vouchers to some of her favourite shops, or something really pretty, well, because she’s a shopaholic. 😀

  14. I’d get Rachel Morgan (of the Hollows series) a huge stash of spell ingredients, including the expensive wands and herbs. She always seems to be making do (which she’s great at!) but it’d be wonderful to have a big range of ingredients to work from.

  15. Aik says:

    I’d give Yelena Zaltana from Poison Study an antidote for all poisons so that she can cure herself in case she consumes a deadly poison.

  16. Chrizette says:

    Shaun from FEED by Mira Grant would love some huge guns and bats so that he can knock a few zombies into the next world 🙂

  17. Emily H. says:

    I would get George Wesley a cloak of invisibility.

  18. Martha says:

    I would get Katniss, from the Hunger Games, Harry Potter’s invicibility cloak. She really needs it!

  19. Emily K says:

    I would get Jill from Vampire Academy nunchucks because she’d love to learn more about using them for fighting and she deserves it after everything that’s happened 🙂

  20. Nachtangel says:

    I’d get Terrible (do I even need to say what he’s from?) some Fluffy dice for his car, then Stacia Kane would have to say that he does have some. Sticking with the same series I’d get Chess some Tulips, not cut ones but ones in a large pot so that they would last, maybe a Nicroette patch too (helps you stop smoking, although I guess that’s the least of her problems)
    Lastly I’d get Rose (yes Rose not Dimitri) a Duster, although it’s not really her thing I think she’d revel in the jokes that could be made about it at Dimitri’s expense.

  21. Throuthehaze says:

    I would give Amanda Feral a gift certificate for a free full repair job from the Reapers

  22. Jennifer says:

    I would get Patch from Hush, Hush some angel wings.

  23. Joani S says:

    I love this question!! It’s been making me rack my brains tho, what popped into my mind at first has already been mentioned, like a lifetime supply of batteries for Mac, how about a dating guide for Cat & Bones? I love those guys, but seriously, sometimes I just wanted to smack both of them for their stupidity. I’d get me the men of Fangtasia calander. A lifetime supply of butterscotch for Ava from Ecstasy in Darkness by Showalter.

  24. Michelle says:

    I’d buy Will from infernal devices a journal so I can later steal it and read his secrets. The next book is not coming out for a while!

  25. I’d buy Simi (Dark Hunter Series) a big huge 32 oz. of BBQ sauce so she could lug that thing around whenever she wants also it wont just come out at once it would come out slowly she she can have good use for it.

  26. Cassandra Hansen says:

    I’d give Adrian(Vampire Academy) a self-help book on smoking and drinking. I mean i love you honey but you’re really hurting yourself and Rose.

  27. TJOC Jessica says:

    Man, I don’t know. I think I’d get Rachel Morgan a nice makeover so everyone quits making fun of her clothing. I’d buy Harry Dresden a new beetle 🙁

  28. Can you give a character yourself??? Cuz I’d give Tod from the Soul Screamers series, me! If not I’d give him a cow bell so that I can hear him when he pops in. 😉


  29. Audrey D. says:

    I could give Sorcha from ‘The wicked Lovely series’ her son for a week if i could or kill her evil twin sister war if it wouldn’t kill her too :C Bummer

  30. cindyg says:

    I’d give Cory from Amy Lane’s Little Goddess series a one week pass to uninterupted sleep, lovin and food with her two beautiful Sidhe, Green & Bracken. I’d love to see their smiles….

    ctrim at wi dot rr dot com

  31. Beth Crawford says:

    I’d give Cat and Bones a month long quiet vacation…..completely alone.

  32. Kristin C. says:

    I’d give Giguhl (from Jaye Wells’ Sabina Kane series) a little sweater and hat set, since he’s hairless and gets cold

  33. Crystal says:

    Well shoot, I spent the last few days trying to think of something and just Beth mentioned it. LoL
    Oh well, =) I would give Cat & Bones a quiet, uninterrupted vacation because they def. deserve it.

  34. Ayan Robleh says:

    I would get Nucking Futs Nix, (the Ever-Knowing) from Immortals After Dark, a supply of awesome t-shirts with all her hilarious sayings, a life time supply of nail polish and brand new Wii – even though she’d already know I was getting it for her 🙂

  35. A.Raine says:

    I would get Barrons from the Fever Series a cookbook for cakes so that he could make Mac a delicious pink birthday cake for the one he destroyed! She definitely deserves it after everything, right? 🙂

  36. Nancy McGregor says:

    I’d give Trent from the hollows series a santa’s elf costume. Just to see the burning hate in his eyes lol I’d make sure I videotaped the opening of the present so Rach, Ivy and Jenks get a good laugh too.
    Nancy 🙂

  37. stephanie says:

    I would give claires mom ( immortal instraments) an eharmony.com account. The men she meets…wow! Haha someone needs to help her.

  38. Mare says:

    I would give Ponyboy Curtis a copy of The Hours by Michael Cunningham because I think his love of words would make him enjoy this book. (I fought the urge to go for the obvious of Catcher in the Rye under the premise, that in my mind, Ponyboy has that book memorized).

  39. Laura H. says:

    Thanks for the great giveaway! I would get Sookie Stackhouse the book, “Guide to the Preternatural Mate” by Isabella Marie Swan-Cullen.
