I’m Casting Some Voodoo Your Way.

I’m not sure how many of you get the connection between “Toulouse” and New Orleans, LA.  Anyone?  Anyone?

Here, let me give you a hint.

Toulousesign

Now you’re in on my secret.  New Orleans is the motherland of Toulouse and it’s there that I first encountered Madame Marie Laveau’s House of Voodoo.  Let me tell you, a little voodoo comes in handy now and then when someone has the nerve to piss you off.  (I’m guessing you’re crossing yourself and vowing not to make me mad right now.  Mwahahahahaha).

Maybe you can’t get to Madame Laveau’s just now but that doesn’t mean you can’t play around with your own brand of  Voodoo.  Read on.483670_10200981945090104_1753848066_n

What’s a ghoul to do when she’s had enough of vamps and weres and the undead?

According to author Bruce Elgin and the fine folks at Grasshorse Studios, an award-winning animation firm, voodoo is the new vampire, and I agree. For about the same price it would cost you to order up a crap vampire movie in which the lead actors have both porcelain skin and porcelain emotions, you can own two episodes of the leagues more stimulating Voodootown series.

This brand new concept in young adult fiction is both unique and engaging. Our teen protagonists, troubled in the usual ways, try to fit in, make friends, and keep away from enemies, all the while shadowed by their stuffed familiars…voodoo dolls with special powers who settle human-world scores by night in the underground world of Voodootown

The latest episode in the series, Episode 6, “Tattered,” is available this week for free download through Amazon. So don’t take our word for it, read for yourself.

We know you’ll be hooked, and like the stitches-and-seams super dolls that watch over the teen characters in Elgin’s engrossing serial, we’re here to help you out. Eight bloggers who have enjoyed a good young adult novel or two in their day, have gotten together to bring you a Voodootown Giveaway.
A Grand Prize winner will net a $50 Amazon gift card, which, obviously, they’d use to buy up every single Voodootown ebook BUT WHY DO THAT WHEN YOU COULD WIN THE WHOLE SHEBANG? Yes, in addition to the $50 Amazon gift card, the Grand Prize winner will get a free copy of each of the currently available ebooks, from “Episode 1, Schooled,” through the latest ebook, “Episode 6, Tattered.” The enormity of this generosity boggles the mind.
BUT THERE’S MORE.

The Grand Prize winner (there will be only one) will also get a limited edition Voodootown t-shirt.  Clothes off our back, that’s how far we’d go for you, readers.

 

Eight other runners-up, one for each of the bloggers helping to promote this giveaway, will win a copy of the very first Voodootown ebook, “Episode 1, Schooled,” as well as a limited edition Voodootown t-shirt.

 

Will wonders never cease? Actually they will. Enter today through Friday, March 22 when this promotion ends. You’ll have until midnight on March 22, when the Rafflecopter sign-up below will shut down. Winners will be announced later that day on Ninja Mom Blog.
Get on it, kids. You just need to leave a comment to enter, posting the name you’d want for your very own voodoo doll protector. The rest of the entry options are optional, but each will give you a greater chance to win.
Remember: The promotion ends in one week. Until then, here’s hoping no one sticks a pin in your voodoo doll.

  1. I need to look into this whole Voodoo doll protector name stuff, because I have no idea what my protector’s name would be. Is it kind of like choosing a derby name? Or a stripper name?
