Guest Blog & Contest with Jesse Kimmel-Freeman

Christmas is here so I thought I would surprise you all with another author guest and contest!

This time I have author Jesse Kimmel-Freeman guest blogging about her book Bella Notte!

Read the guest blog and make sure you enter the contest for your chance to win one of three copies of the book! Also make sure you check out Jesse's books! I think there is a little of something for everyone in there!


Are you a vampire fanatic? Do you eat, sleep, dream, breathe vampires? Or maybe you just love the things that go bump in the night? Is it fangs or howls that draw you in? Are you team vampire or team werewolf? Does a full moon make you want to howl with joy? Do you love Bela Lugosi and Lan Chaney, Jr. ? Do you read Dracula religiously?

Bella Notte has vampires, werewolves and lots of fun little twists. Since it's the first book in the series, it's just the foundation being given to you. You get to know self-imposed social outcast Emma Hutchinson, home-schooled hottie Michael O'Shanold, and dreamy pretentious Dominic DeDominico.

There's a badass chick fit, a seriously near death experience, a prophecy, a ball, some coming of age drama, and all the usual nonsense that goes along with high school

Read the blurb for it:

Vampires? Check. Werewolves? Check. Death prophecy to hang over your head? Double check. Seventeen year old Emma Hutchinson struggles to find her place in the world she has been born to as she tries to decide whether she should be with Michael, the boy she has been dreaming about since she was three or if she belongs with Dominic, her betrothed.

Got your attention? Are you curious about Emma, Dom, and Mike? Good! The second book, Bella Vita, should be out in the next months too! So if you've got a thing for witches, some good and some horrid, then Bella Vita will be for you.

In honor of the holidays, there's a free short story titled “A Bella Notte Christmas Story” up on Smashwords. Check it out. Who doesn't love a good snowball fight, right?

I don't claim to have the best vampires out there- to each his own and all that- but my vampires are unique. In Bella Notte, you get to learn some of the traditional stuff- myths and legends are addressed. In Bella Vita, the real fun starts when you get to know about the natural talents some of these vampires possess. These books definitely have something for everyone.

Feel free to connect with me on Facebook, or like my author page. You can follow me on Twitter, too! Or you could follow my blog.

A big thank you to Amberkatze's Book Blog for having me and taking the time, and a huge thank you to the readers! You guys rock my socks!

My perfect Christmas is spent with my DH and 8 year old DD, Lady K, and Bailey the pup. Oh and there'd be snow on the ground. So this year is perfection again here in Colorado.

My perfect Christmas is one spent with family. It doesn't matter if the gifts are big or small or nonexistent, or if we're only having tea and biscuits. As long as we're together, it's the best gift of all.

Victoria said...

My perfect Christmas is just hanging out at home with no one bugging me to do anything. No laundry! That's a first :).
Merry Christmas!

My perfect Christmas is having the entire family present, with no one having to go to work that day (after all, there are many professions that don't get time off for holidays!), and preferably with no melt-downs from the toddlers!

My perfect Christmas would be a white one. Snow on the ground, family all around with cookies and food and love. Presents given and recieved, we sing Happy Birthday to Jesus. That, sounds perfect to me!
