Give the Gift of Autographed Blood Coven

Hi all!

Did you know Blood Coven books make great holiday gifts? :) Especially if they're personally autographed copies, made out to the person on you're giving them to! But how do you get your hands on one of those? Here's a few ways:

1) If you send me the cost of the book ($9.99 plus $3.00 shipping) either by mail or over PayPal, I can send you out autographed copies directly.

2) If you mail me the book you bought in a store and enclose return postage, I can autograph and mail it back to you.

3) I can mail you a "book plate" which is basically an autograph sticker, which can be stuck inside your copy of the book. Just email me if you want this. No worries on postage since this will just be the cost of a stamp.

EMAIL ME (mari@marimancusi.com) if you're interested in any of the above options and we'll talk details!

My daughter has the first three books, so I think I'll mail them to you and have them signed for her birthday (Dec 16) or for Christmas. She'll LOVE it!

It's nice that you're going out of your way to offer fans of your work signed copies at very little cost.

That doesn't, unfortunately, excuse your obnoxious augmenting of pop culture fads like anime and World of Warcraft, even vampires, and then acting like the glorified fanfiction you wrote was worthy of being published as a work of literature.

As someone who enjoys video games it enrages me to see you writing a story about an unlikeable girl who happens to play WoW being labeled a "gamer girl", treated as if she's special and succeeding as if she deserved it. You are clearly just trying to be "hip" and "with it" by spending half the time describing NOTWOW and NOTMYWOWCHARACTER which contributes nothing compelling to the narrative and comes off as forced.

Let's say I wrote a book named Cooking Guy about a 16 year old boy who loves cooking and is really good at making 2 minute noodles. This unique interest (it's unique because cooking is something only women do so a boy doing it makes him really super special) somehow allows him to get a hot girlfriend and group of friends despite him being a complete asshole to everyone he meets, such as the fat cheerleader who questions him for trying to start up a "cooking club" and attempts to eat the fliers he puts up (which demonstrates that he's right and she's wrong and that his interests are superior and correct).

I've written your book. The difference is that the assumption I've made (the parenthesis) is more clear.

That sort of assumption is bad. Please don't do that. Ever.

I appreciate everyone's opinions on my books, even the ones that are sometimes hard to hear.

I will, of course, take all feedback to heart and keep it in mind when writing future books.

Thank you for writing,
