Tournament of Monsters: Your Defenders!!!

Only one week left before a monster smackdown of epic proportions takes place right here! Will it be Vampires or Zombies? Imhotep the Mummy or Pennywise the Clown? On July 26, the TOURNAMENT OF MONSTERS will begin and you will have the chance to vote for the final winner!

During the inaugural Blogger Book Fair (All’s Fair in Blogs and More!), a great group of authors have agreed to choose one monster to defend. They’ve sharpened their claws, I mean pens, and are ready to attack their opponent! Here are your defenders and the matches for ROUND ONE:

The Balrog of Moria, defended by Melissa Douthit, author of The Raie’Chaelia and The Firelight of Maalda


 Darth Vader, defended by Thomas Winship, author of Vaempires: Revolution and Vaempires: White Christmas

* * *

Mankind, defended by Brandon R. Luffman, author of Out After Dark and Best Served Hot


Zombies, defended by Wynne Channing, author of What Kills Me

 * * *

Vampires, defended by Christie Rich, author of Five and Dark Matter


Imhotep the Mummy, defended by Kayla Curry, author of Obsidian

Koh the Face Stealer, defended by Vicki Essex, author of My Son’s Hero


Pennywise the Clown, defended by Wynne Channing, author of What Kills Me

Cheer for your choice. Make their headshots your profile pic on Facebook. Tweet with the hashtag #MonsterMash.  Tell us who should win. Trash the losers. Don’t see your favorite monster on this list? Let us know who you would throw into the ring!

Mark your calendars. Bring a splash guard. There will be blood. (Do mummies even bleed?) We’ll see you back here on July 26!
