hypen8... yes! cloak!

Not sure I have any for this one...but you never know what I may find lurking in the storage Bookboxes. Must go make the payment when I am out today and will bring another box home and see what creepy Titles are hiding in the shadows. ; )

I've a few murder mysteries & thrillers with dead or death the title & quite a few Vampire books from winning the Supernatural Sweepstake last year - just need to read them first!

Is die ok? What about skin? Or is that pushing it.... ;o)

In other words, what if I have a book with a vampire character in it, but the title doesn't reflect that? (Robin McKinley's Sunshine comes to mind, although I don't have a copy right now.)

How about...

...suck?

As in Christopher Moore's "Bloodsucking Fiends", "You Suck", etc.

(I realize that Bloodsucking Fiends counts anyway, but You Suck is the sequel.)

I'm counting this one because of the vampire teeth on the cover: hopefully that works. There are also vampires in the story...

THANKS TO ALL FOR PARTICIPATING! : )

Have finally heard from zbird during the past week or so. Like many of us...she is still dealing with health issues and is currently unable to participate in BookCrossing at this time. I offered to help answer questions and such for this last Challenge she has running for now...and also GroundHog from January and Clean Start from February. She said feel free. Maybe when she's up to peeking in on things, it will brighten her day to see the releases we have made. ; )

Plum-crazy...die and skin...YES!
hyphen8...subject, suck, pic of teeth, vampires in story...YES!
solittletime...a vampire in it...YES!
tomato68...corpse...YES!

I found this link http://www.religioustolerance.org/vampire5.htm when I was researching my release of The "Fledgling" Handbook 101 (one new to the world of Vampyres with little experience) and how it pertained to the world of Vampirism (mythical)/Vampyrism (real) which might be helpful. Was more than I needed to know, as the subject is not my cup of tea, but I wanted to be able to release a few to help zbird's Vampire Challenge and also Davros-10's Science Fiction Challenge 2016 http://www.bookcrossing.com/forum/23/527171. I found the "Fledgling" book at Friends of the Library for 25 cents, so it helped them (and my budget), as well. ; )

Cute bunny ears, Diane-Fraser. ; ) zbird has been in touch, and as I mention above to hyphen8, it is sounding like she will not be back anytime soon, if at all.

As some of you may know, zbird has been struggling with health issues for many months now. I have been in touch with her and have her blessing to share her news with whomever might be interested. At long last, and after a change of doctors, she recently received test results that included a diagnosis of lymphoma. She will be seeing an Oncologist on April 6th for further evaluation. She has not been participating in Bookcrossing for the past few months, and says she may not be back at all. She is very weak and unable to do much of anything right now, so while she may enjoy reading a PM from those who would wish to be in contact with her, she may not respond. I am planning on sending her a card as soon as I am able, and if you think you might like to do the same and do not have her address, feel free to PM me.

...please let her know that we have all enjoyed her release challenges and wish her the best.

Have I mentioned that I really hate cancer? #%%&#*$&!!

...please let her know that we have all enjoyed her release challenges and wish her the best.

I sent a card off to let her know just that (we ALL have...), hyphen8, and included a little Woman's Day Word Search Book similar to those I carry with me that I told her would come in handy for wait time for her doctor appointments. ; )

Have I mentioned that I really hate cancer? #%%&#*$&!!

It IS...a BEAST...to say the very LEAST! Say...I must be a poet and don't know it. : D


Edited to add...I took the time to include a list of all of those who participated in this Challenge, as well as her Clean Start and Groundhog Challenges, along with the number of books released in each Challenge, and included that information in the card I sent out to brighten her day. Hope it gets to her before her appointment with the Oncologist for more evaluation on Wednesday 4/6 to help list her spirit. ; )

I haven't heard anything more as yet, but I know that dealing with health issues can be all consuming, especially with this type of diagnosis. I'm sure if I were in her shoes, it would be very uplifting to know that others were thinking of me, and sending best wishes and prayers and positive energy during this difficult time.

Have PM'd zbird's address to everyone who has requested it up to this point. ; )
