Hey everyone!

I'm sure you all saw Marie's post a few days ago regarding the Alpha Showdown 2011.. well, I was checking it out and Dimitri LOST by only 2% votes! :( So, I'm here to remind you all to vote for Rose in her current showdown against Kate Daniels. Rose is losing by a considerable amount so EVERYONE needs to go vote for her!!

You can vote HERE. We need at least one Vampire Academy badass in the finals!

Maybe you remember the big snowstorms that swept the US at the same time that Richelle was on her book tour for Last Sacrifice? Unfortunately it resulted in her having to cancel the Minneapolis signing.

A few brave -and just a little bit crazy (in a good way) - Vampire Academy fans, made it to the Mall of America and decided to have their own signing. In case you missed that, you really need to read Richelle's blog post: The greatest signing I never had. Here's a taste of what you get. I present to you, Fauxchelle:

When the signing was canceled, Richelle promised she'd be back in the spring, when the snow cleared, and that's what's happening tomorrow. Sunday, May 22 is the new date for the signing. So if you're in the neighborhood, make sure you don't miss it. Because, not only will you finally be able to attend Richelle's signing. She has also promised to read from Bloodlines!!! You certainly don't want to miss that! Hopefully, all of us who can't attend this signing will hear all about it afterwards.

For all the details, go to Richelle's blog. Mall of America have also posted additional rules for the signing on their website. You can read about those on

Have you checked out the Alpha Showdown Vampire Book Club is running at the moment? There are some really awesome Alphas, male and female, battling it out for the title. Among them are some of our favorite Richelle Mead characters, Eugenie, Dorian, Rose and Dimitri!

Today is the last day to vote for Eugenie. It's also the first day to vote for Dimitri. So make sure you support Richelle's characters (especially Dimitri, who I'm championing ;-).

To vote for Eugenie, go here. Dimitri's battle can be found here. And keep your eyes out for Rose's later on.

Also, in today's showdown between Jace and Dimitri (gulp), you have the opportunity to win awesome YA books! So make sure you don't miss that. :D

A little reminder that Cadsawan Jewelry's New Moon contest for the month ends soon. (I'm not completely sure when. On her blog, Janet wrote May 16, but she tweeted that it ends tomorrow?)

One of the things you can win is the new Dimitri charm! This is one we've been waiting for (patiently?) for quite a while now, and it's finally here. Good things good things come to those who wait, which is apparent when you see the design:

I love the reason behind this particular contest - the power of a smile. You can enter the contest both on Cadsawan's facebook page and on the blog. Click here for the full details on Janet's blog.

First of all, I want to give a big welcome to Jessica! She's already introduced herself, so you'll probably know that she is a much appreciated addition to the blog. :D
If anyone else is also interested in contributing to the blog, feel free to send me an e-mail.

While I'm watching Twilight (first time it airs on Swedish TV! :-), I thought I'd let you know (or remind you) that Psynde is offering free shipping right now in her Etsy shop.

Yama, the original Cemetery Cat hasn't been feeling well lately and he's needed to go to the vet several times. So if there is a special piece you've been longing to get, now is a great time, to support Psynde, Yama and Vampire Academy.

All you have to do to get the shipping refund is mention Yama in the message box when you order! :D

For example, the Siberian Tears necklace, inspired by Dimitri, is available to purchase again:

Psynde has also added a new, really lovely, Sydney necklace inspired by Bloodlines:

Visit Cemetery Cat Designs to buy this or any of the other amazing pieces of jewelry in Psynde's Etsy shop. The free shipping offer is valid through today (Friday).

Psynde has also recently started a Facebook page for Cemetery Cat Designs, so make sure to "like" that.

I got news yesterday that Spirit Bound did NOT win title for best teen book BUT Richelle Mead has decided to write a short story about Rose and Dimitri anyway! I, along with thousands of other people, am so excited for this upcoming story! Some people are speculating that it will be another Vampire Academy novel but it will only be a story, something's better than nothing, right? :)

For more information check out Richelle Mead's Official Livejournal.

Hey everyone!

I'm new around here so bare with me. Since Marie has been super busy lately I'm going to be updating here and there to keep this thing going! I decided to do this because I noticed they needed some help, so why not help someone out and be able to blog about my favorite book at the same time!

I'm just here to remind everyone to vote for Spirit Bound for the 2011 Ten Book of the Year!
If Spirit Bound wins Richelle Mead will write a story about Rose and Dimitri visitng his family in Russia. I know everyone wants more Rose and Dimitri so vote until voting is closed and we'll get the story we've all been waiting for.

I know the previous post is regarding the same thing but I'm just here to say hello and again remind you all to VOTE!!! Thanks!
