Party at Vlad's House!!!

Okay, actually, it's not at Vlad's house (Nelly would probably kill him). It's at Borders in Fairview heights, Illinois. Today, from 3pm to 7pm.

There will be a vampire costume contest, games, drawings for cool stuff (like Vlad hoodies, a t-shirt, an iPod Nano engraved with Vlad's Mark, and MORE!), and ME! Plus, you can pick up your copy of TENTH GRADE BLEEDS. I'll autograph it to you. We can hang out, eat Vlad cookies, Vlad suckers, and Vlad cake! It's a PARTY, Minions!!!

So, if you can be there, be there. If you can't, gather a bunch of Minions or would-be Minions and hold your own party in Vlad's honor. And send Auntie Heather pics!

Also, for those Minions that have already read TENTH GRADE BLEEDS...thanks for keeping the secret and not divulging what happens to your fellow Minions. :)=

Hey Auntie! I loved TGB. Read it all of last night until 5:00 am.(Just got it last night.....) Anyway, me and my friends had national goth day on thursday to celebrate the release! It was so much fun since most of my friends aren't goth in the first place.

By the by.... Can you please have another art contest? Cause I finally have a scene that I want to draw.

Anyway..... Have a good one Auntie and all you fellow minions.

Hello "Auntie" Heather. I have just finished Eighth Grade Bites and I think that your a great writer. It was a great story but I found one problem with it. I guess its more of an opinion statement but I think that you made a mistake in an article of clothng for vlad. In the book he is looking through his dresser drawer looking fot his box, and he says that everytnihg was in check, socks and boxers. This here is the problem. Vladimir is the kind of goth/gamer-nerd that would wear briefs (AKA tighty whtiies to those of you still immature enough to call them that) not boxers. I am this kind of a kid and see a lot of myself in Vlad. I think that in future books you should have him switch.

i wanted a purple iPod nano with vlad's mark on it!! but i couldnt go because of 2 reasons:
1. my parents didnt want to drive 4 5 hours (its only 5 hours!!! & its 4 a great cause!)
2. i had 2 go 2 my dads company pinic instead (it was outside it was hot i didnt hav tht much fun al though i got an octopus painted on my hand:)=)
anyway so im one very sad minion and im not talking 2 any1 in the family 2day or 2marow(its wht they get)

Hey Auntie!

I loved 8th Grade Bites and 9th Grade Slays! I even got my friends to read them(even the one friend I have that doesn't like to read loved them!) and I'm going out to buy 10th Grade Bleeds today! I just wish that I checked your site sooner. I definately would have come to Fairveiw heights, Illinois...even if I do live in Jersey. xD

I was wondering if there was someplace I could buy a Vlad hoodie from the Eigth Grade Bites cover...? When I first got the book I even remember thinking that having a hoodie like that would be awsome!

Anyway, I loved the first two and can't wait to read the third! My birthday is tomarrow, so me buying it will be like a b-day present to myself!

Keep on writing Auntie! Your amazing and I can't wait to get my hands on Tenth Grade Bleeds!!

<3 Always,
An Avid Reader and Forever a Minion :)=

What People Are Saying About 'Eighth Grade Bites'

"A spooky mystery that's funny, gruesome, heartwarming, spellbinding, sad, joyous, surprising and topped off with a tasty blend of blood and chocolate. Yum. What more could you ask for?" ~D.J. MacHale, New York Times-bestselling author of PENDRAGON: JOURNAL OF AN ADVENTURE THROUGH TIME AND SPACE

"'Eighth grade Bites' had me on the edge of my seat. It's a great piece of fiction. It drops you right into the action, grabs you by the throat (pun intended), and won't let go. Vladimir Tod is a truly sympathetic character cursed with an existence not of his own doing, but doing his best to do the right thing. It's part 'Goosebumps' mixed with 'Harry Potter' and a dash – no, a heaping tablespoon – of Stephen King. If you're in eighth grade, or a vampire, or an eighth grade vampire, 'Eighth Grade Bites' is a definite must read!"~Butch Hartman, creator of Nickelodeon's THE FAIRLY ODD PARENTS and DANNY PHANTOM

"Eighth Grade Bites is a terrific vampire tale told with a sharp, middle-school grin. It definitely does not bite!" ~Christopher Moore, author of BLOODSUCKING FIENDS and A DIRTY JOB

"Eighth Grade Bites is a delightful novel filled with dark, biting humor that will appeal to everyone who ever felt they were different. A deft hand at depicting the angst of teen years, Heather Brewer does a wonderful job blending vampire legend with the modern day horror that strikes fear in the heart of so many: the eighth grade."~Katie MacAlister, New York Times-bestselling author of EVEN VAMPIRES GET THE BLUES

"Heather Brewer has invented the most endearing of vampires in Vlad, an eighth grader juggling the woes of adolescence with the decidedly unique difficulties of being a vampire. She perfectly captures the humor and angst of eighth grade, mixed with a nail-biting adventure. Utterly charming and irresistible!" ~Liza Conrad, author of HIGH SCHOOL BITES: THE LUCY CHRONICLES

"This book will fool you. Just when you think you've identified it as a story lit by the cheery glow of a slightly scary jack-o-lantern, it becomes something else -- a tale told by the flickering light of a dying campfire late at night. And the shadows are very dark indeed. A surprising mix of humor and horror." ~Douglas Rees, author of VAMPIRE HIGH

"Fresh and fast-paced, with just the right brew of chills and laughs. I’m looking forward to finding out what happens when Vlad hits Grade Nine." ~Nancy Baker, author of KISS OF THE VAMPIRE

"A fabulous book from a gifted storyteller! I never wanted it to end." ~Gena Showalter, author of OH MY GOTH
