Welcome to the Bite Club!

We all share a common vein here at VampChix- we love our vampires! So, we're starting a monthly vampire romance book club and our first featured book is: The Mammoth Book of Vampire Romance 2

The rules are simple:

First rule of Bite Club, tell everyone about Bite Club.

Second rule of Bite Club, don't bleed on the carpet!

Here's how it works:
Each month we will feature a new vampire romance title, beginning with an author spotlight. Everyone gets a few weeks to read the book and then we meet to discuss our favorite characters, plot lines, settings, hot scenes, world building etc. etc. The blog will be open all month long for those who want to chat books, but spoilers will not be permitted until discussion day unless clearly marked. If you have a scene that jumps out and really grabs you by the neck, let's talk about it, but for those who choose to remain in the dark, spoilers can be skipped. When our club meets we can discuss any aspect of the book that appeals to us, and who knows? Maybe the author will drop in to talk too!

Where to find us:
First bite: The Mammoth Book of Vampire Romance
First chat: October 30th

Hi :)
Your site is great!
Looking forward to your posts!
Love & Best Wishes,

Anna Dougherty said...

RKCharron- Thanks for stopping by. We are really excited to be doing this book club. Have you read the Mammoth Book for Vampire Romance? Have plans to read the second one? I'm curious what people think about short stories.

I'm game.

Anna Dougherty said...

Cyd- Glad to have you. Thanks for coming by.

This should be fun, I'm looking forward to it.

I have read half of the first Mammoth Book of Vampire Romance and some off the stories were a bit strange, but the short, short stories are really easy to get into. Haven't had a chance to finish it, but I'll finish the second one for this.

Just want to add, to become a member of Bite Club, you can simply 'Follow' us in the sidebar under Minions. Then you just have to check back into the blog once in a while for updates. We'll do the discussion on October 30th

We're looking into ways to send alerts to our Followers list. Anyone know how to do that?

Anna Dougherty said...

Valerie P- Welcome to the club! I haven't finished the first one yet either, my TBR pile just screams at me to start a new book and I get sidetracked:) My project for the weekend is to finish the first one so I can be ready for the 2nd.

Vickie said...

I finished reading the first book about a month ago. Loved the short story format. Enough to get you sucked into a good story line and not enough background to drown. I'm in for reading the second book!

Anna Dougherty said...

My thoughts exactly! I like the format because it also gives you a chance to try an author you may not have tried before.

I just picked up my copy at Borders! I figured it would show up early in stores. Amazon has it too for about $9, which is a great price. $13.95 at Borders

Anna Dougherty said...

Thanks Michele! I was just online poking around to find my copy. Should have by the end of this weekend- just have to drag my kiddies to the store:)

Anna Dougherty said...

Got my copy at Barnes and Noble for 13.95, not too bad- clerk said it was a popular title. Can't wait to start reading!

You could set up a ning social network. Like Bitten By Books' blood bank.

Since this is a new blog we are still trying to figure out what works and what doesn't. A book club seems to involve more personal interaction since the focus is on reading certain books and then talking about them. We are always looking for ideas!
