CLOSED Giveaway: Red Velvet & Absinthe

I think it's time for another giveaway, yes?

But first



Red Velvet and Absinthe, edited by Mitzi Szereto
Short Story Anthology, 256 pages
Published September 13th 2011 by Cleis Press


Red Velvet and Absinthe explores love and lust with otherworldly partners who, by their sheer fantastical nature, evoke passion and desire far beyond that which any normal human being can inspire. Although the greats such as Bram Stoker, Edgar Allan Poe, and Daphne du Maurier are long dead, these contemporary authors keep the Gothic spirit alive and well by interpreting it in new and exciting ways. Red Velvet and Absinthe offers readers a collection of unique and original stories that conjure up the atmospheric and romantic spirit of the Gothic masters (and mistresses) but take things a bit further by adding to the brew a generous dosage of eroticism. Lie back and listen to the wind howling outside your window as you read these stories in the flickering light of a candle, the absinthe you’re sipping warming your body like the caressing touch of a lover’s fingers . . .


I'll be reviewing this book soon, but until then, how's about you try to win a copy for your very own self?

  32. I would have to say faeries. Simply because they are extremely evil and they are probably one of the smartest supernatural creatures. They kind outsmart you and make you do things you would never think you wold do. They sign a contract with them.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Vampires are my favorites. They are the best because they are immortal and in every story they are extraordinarily HOT. I'm in love with the mythology surrounding Vampires and the many novels surrounding them.

  34. I love good old fashioned witches and ghosts. I will read any book that has anything to do with the two.
