Trick or Treat Day 2 with Blessed by Cynthia Leitich Smith

This Giveaway is now closed!
Hardcover, 480 pages
Published February 8th 2011 by Candlewick Press
Quincie P. Morris, teen restaurateuse and neophyte vampire, is in the fight of her life -- or undeath. Even as she adjusts to her new appetites, she must clear her best friend and true love, the hybrid werewolf Kieren, of murder charges; thwart the apocalyptic ambitions of Bradley Sanguini, the seductive vampire-chef who "blessed" her; and keep her dead parents’ restaurant up and running. She hires a more homespun chef and adds the preternaturally beautiful Zachary to her wait staff. But with hundreds of new vampires on the rise and Bradley off assuming the powers of Dracula Prime, Zachary soon reveals his true nature -- and a flaming sword -- and they hit the road to staunch the bloodshed before it’s too late. Even if they save the world, will there be time left to salvage Quincie’s soul?--Goodreads

The Signing
Cynthia Leithich Smith's signing was one of the best and educational signings I've ever been to. She mostly talked about her Tantalize series being turned into graphic novels. She explained in detail how her graphic novel came to life with the partnership between herself and Ming Doyle the illustrator. It was fascinating. I was never a fan of graphic novels but her presentation definitely changed my mind. If you get a chance check out

  33. I think it is a Trick, but that is interesting, gross, but interesting. That would be quite a gimmick given how popular vampires are now. Thanks so much for the giveaway, love the cover :)
