The Dark Valentine’s Day Contest
Six lucky Forum members in good standing (NOTE: “IN GOOD STANDING” MEANS THAT THEY HAVE CONTRIBUTED A POST AT LEAST ONCE A MONTH FOR AT LEAST TWO CONSECUTIVE MONTHS) will each receive one of The Forever Roses beautiful gold-trimmed black roses, PLUS they will also get the NIGHT WORLD or VAMPIRE DIARIES book of their choice, autographed by L. J. Smith with whatever words they like. Each of the roses is perfect down to the smallest detail, with stunningly lovely gold-trimmed black petals, a heavy, opulent golden stem, and gold-trimmed green leaves. There are even golden thorns—watch your fingers!
In the NIGHT WORLD series, black flowers are, of course, used for communication and identification, and sporting a black rose would mean that you were a vampire who had once been human, a made vampire. Naturally, a vampire could also give a black rose to his lady-love, in the most dramatic of romantic gestures: literally giving himself to her! Whatever your fantasy, a Forever Roses black rose in your hand will act as a magic wand to conduct you there.
In THE VAMPIRE DIARIES black roses are not only romantic but sacred. Damon has been searching all his life for a black rose to admire, and when he finds the next best thing, a deep burgundy rose, he can’t help from taking it and stroking Elena’s face and lips with the lush velvety blossom. When at last Damon finds a bouquet that has been given to Stefan, which has a single black rose in the middle, he can’t resist the temptation to sniff it—and BANG!—a transformation beyond even Damon’s wildest dreams occurs,
As for the books, at this time, the only way of getting Lisa’s genuine autograph on a book (not a bookplate) is to win a contest like this, as she does not have time at present for book signings and does not send autographed book or plates in the mail.
