Fun Contests!


FALLEN officially hit the shelves last Thursday and to celebrate I'm doing a fun contest with three other authors. All you have to do is give your answer to the question below in the comments section and I'll pick a random winner from those who post on Tuesday and Wednesday. Up for grabs is a copy of FALLEN, plus an assortment of 15 paranormal romances by various authors. Then after you comment here, hop over to the other three authors blogs and answer their questions for a chance to win even more cool prizes!

Make sense? Sort of? :)

Here's the question you need to answer:
Which celebrity do you think is a vampire?

Here's what we thought...
Anya Bast- Tom Cruise. He's either a vampire or an alien.

Michele Bardsley- Paris Hilton. C'mon. She's pale, doesn't eat, and only comes out at night.

Tate Hallaway- Of course the old joke is Dick Clark, but he's sort of dropped out of the scene (in hiding until he can rise again?) My other answer is equally obscure: Jim Davis, the creator/writer of the Garfield comic strip. I think he's a vampire because he has this magical ability to continue to be immensely popular with kids. My son Mason devours anything Garfield related. Another friend of mine said her daughter did the same thing. I think it's clearly all about vampire glamour.

Erin McCarthy- I stole this answer straight from Lori Devoti (see her interview with the Impalers a few weeks ago) but I thought it just had to be true. Oprah is clearly a vampire... no one can exert that kind of influence without the use of glamours. And she is tight with Tom Cruise after all.

So which celeb do you think is a vampire? And make sure you visit the other author's blogs for a chance at more great prizes. :-)

I would have to say Stuart Townsend, he played a good one in the movie Queen of the Damned!

CrystalGB said...

Jay Leno. He kinda has the look of a vampire about him. LOL

Leah said...

I'm going to go with Richard Roxburgh just because I loved his role as Dracula in Van Helsing.

Meljprincess said...

Angelina Jolie. With that pale face and those lips? C'mon! lol!

anne said...

An actor who I believe best represents a vampire is Anthony Hopkins. Extremely capable and talented in this area.

Valerie Oakley said...

Angelina Jolie, she's enthralled me around the world with her mind powers.

limecello said...

Ack. Ok, I admit I couldn't resist, and googled "vampire celebrities" - saw a scary picture of Christina Aguilera...
Haha - I'm not so much a fan of the others mentioned in the blog post [Tom Cruise goes more with alien for me...] but I'm going to say Christopher Plummer. I love him - and/but - come on. He's been around for like 80 years. And he aged well for a long time - so I call him as a vampire. He might disappear for 30 years, then appear as a 25 yr old again. :P
Congratulations on the new release! I *cannot* wait to get my hands on a copy of "Fallen!"

Lori said...

I have to say Jon Bon Jovi again. The man does not seem to age at all!

Karren said...

I would have to say Christpher Walkin, if you look at his attributes seperately he is an odd looking man, but together he draws people to him. Has to be glamour. And, I must say he seems to be quite the odd ducky!

Eva said...

John Cusack. Hands down. 'Nuff said.

Ann M. said...

OH.. I'm so bad with actors' and actresses' names. I don't know Hugh Jackman could be a vampire. He turned into Wolverine a little to easily. :) There must be something going about with trying to remain hidden from others.

Carmel said...

Hillary Clinton... oh c'mon it's nothing against her. But seriously... her face doesn't move. She's either really loved to the point where it could be glamour or really hated.

Who's more paranormal than her? Besides Oprah and her husband of course...

robynr said...

For me it would be Kate Beckinsale I thought she spoke to well with fangs.

Jackie said...

Hillary Clinton came to mind for me too. There's just something really odd about her.

Although, Liza Minelli popped into my head too. Her and her ex-husband.

Christina said...

Ack! How to pick just one, lol. I agree about Tom being an alien, he is way too weird to be a vamp.

David Bowie I guess. He is hideous looking yet has women falling over him (could be the money and fame, but...) And he is tall, gaunt, and pale, perfect vamp attributes.

Cathy said...

My guess would be Quentin Tarantino. I think he might have the inside track when it comes to writing his screen plays.

Rhonda Stapleton said...

I firmly stand by my belief that Betty White is a vampire.

PS--CONGRATS on the release!!! I can't WAIT to snag a copy of my own!

Dena said...

I think Brad Pitt & Angelina Jolie are Vamps and they were drawn to each other and finally gave in to be together.

tara said...

Andrew Zimmern***I would list as OTHER!! LOVE HIM **but he has to be something other than human to digest the odd things he puts in his mouth!! Bizarre Foods indeed!!!

Lori Devoti said...

Do I get to play? Since Erin DID steal my answer??? :D

lrwirum said...

Definitely Anthony Hopkins. He does evil so well. :-)

danetteb said...

Happy Release Day!

I think that Christopher Walken is a vamp, he's been around a long time and if I seen him coming at me fangsextended in the middle of the night, I'd be screaming demon.:D

Hugs, Danette

Jane said...

I think Victoria Beckham(Posh Spice) is a vampire. She's got he gaunt look perfected.

Thalia's Child said...

For whatever reason, the Olson twins popped into my head. They always look so malnourished and sallow, so clearly they are avoiding feeding, but yeah. I've never understood their popularity, and I don't think they're terribly attractive, and yet - worth billions - clearly they haven't fixed me with their glamour yet.

Shari C said...

I have to agree with Paris Hilton as she is so pale and has that stare of hers that makes me think vampire. She is always out at night and seems to cause trouble and draws crowds to her...hmmm, makes me wonder about Britney Spears...definitely, not normal.

Robin Snodgrass said...

Michael Jackson - I mean come on - what's with the pale pale face if he's not some kind of vampire or alien?

ddurance said...

Um......hello, Stephen King. How could the guy write so much weird stuff if he isn't some kind of weird creature? LOL

Tameka said...

Tom Cruise because he has like a cult like following. People are drawn to him those beautiful teeth the way looks at you with his hypnotic eyes. I swear he'll make the perfect vampire. Lol

Qwill said...

David Bowie. He's pale, a bit not human, and somewhat mysterious. And he can glamour with his music.

Ashley said...

Ryan Gosling...he's got that look in his face lol And he never looks any older

cas2ajs said...

Winona Ryder. Definitely. Especially in her portrayal of characters in Beetlejuice and Mermaids.

Cheryl S.

Cindy said...

Christopher Lee. Only because he was so good at playing one. LOL

petite said...

My choice is Gene Simmons. He exemplifies one everyday of his life. Perfect.

~Linda~ said...

Shawn Connery......... he always looks so damn .....yummy. Yea I know he is old. But still

Michelle said...

I would go with Christopher Walken he way strange...odd...weird...off the wall...

thebookgirl said...

I am going to go with the ever popular Tom Cruise. There is just something about that man that isn't right, lol.

Night critter said...

George Clooney. He's single, sexy, has the whole glamor thing happening. Plus he lives in a remote villa.

:Candice: said...

First, I love this series and just finished Fallen last week :)

Okay-- I think Tom Cruise is a good pick (of course Oprah changed him and now has mind control over him) but hey if not Tom then I would say
Christina Ricci - yeah I say Ricci

Anonymous said...

I'm going to go with the total ICK factor and say Marilyn Manson. *sudder* 'Nuff said.

Pamk said...

I am going with Dick Clark cause he sure looks good for that old a man. I can't stand to think of tom Cruise as a vamp. I still want to keep some of the mystique of the vamps or at least think they are sexy.

thewildtwo said...

I'd have to say Johnny Depp. For some reason!?? Really...think about it!!

Meljprincess said...

IGGY POP is a vampire! And Dave Navarro (Jane's Addiction)
I know Dave is 'cause we sucked face. LOL!

ReadingIsSoMuchFun said...

I would have to say Hugh Jackman just look at him ;-) Erin you're book Fallen sounds good I can not wait to get my hands on Fallen to read love the cover as well perfect :)

Hugssss
LindaH

Dina said...

I think Kevin Bacon could be a vamp, that long face and the intensity of his eyes in some movies.

RachaelfromNJ said...

I think Christina Ricci is a vampire. She is so pale and skinny and looks kind of crazy sometimes.

Lori T said...

I am going to have to go with Ville Valo the lead singer for the group HIM. I saw them in concert recently and not only is he incredibly hot but he has that sexy voice, but several of his songs are about vampires.

He is just the whole package as far as vampires go. I loved everyone's answers.

Erin McCarthy said...

Well, wouldn't you know about a minute after I posted the blog, my Internet went down for two days? Do you know how torturous that is?? LOL.

Anyway, I love everyone's answers! I never thought about the Olsen twins being vamps, but I definitely think you're on to something there. ;-) Christopher Walken gives me the heebies too... I really wouldn't want him biting me. Just sayin'.

I did pick a winner... it's danetteb. Danette, just email me at lynn1wulf @ yahoo.com and I'll get your details so you can get FALLEN and the other books. :-)

Have a great Thursday!
Erin, live from the coffeeshop, desperate for java and the Internet

danetteb said...

Lol...When I see Christopher Walken I still get a picture of when he played in Poltergueist(mis spelled,sorry)

Thank you Erin! Email is on its way.

Hugs, Danette
