Vampire Rules Scavenger Hunt
Scavenger Hunt: Are you a good hunter? Let's find out.
How to play: Read 'my' version of The Three Bears and find the eight Halloween words embedded in the story. For instance, witch. Write these words down and email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are one of the first ten to do this, you will win free digital copies of Vampires Rule and Werewolves Rule. Now, to be fair, Vampires Rule is already free at Smashwords. So even if you don't win both books, you can download that one for free. Go ahead and tell all your book-loving friends.
What is Vampires Rule about? Jack has always beat the odds... at least until now. When he was attacked by a werewolf, vampires saved him. When he got tired of living the vampire life, another werewolf attack freed him, making him human again. Now Jack just wants to live a normal life, but what's normal about a hunter girlfriend, a brother who wants to stake him to be on the safe side, and a head werewolf building an army to rule the world?
Are you sick of vampires? Don't worry. This book has a new hook and a new mythology for the creatures.
Now, let the hunt begin:
Once upon a time there were bears. There was a mama bear, a papa bear, and a baby bear. Mama bear made porridge for breakfast, and they all sat down to eat. Papa Bear said, “My porridge is too hot.” Mama Bear said, “My pumpkin is too cold.” Baby Bear didn’t even try his because he wanted pancakes. Papa Bear thought they should take a walk while his porridge cooled. So they did.
While they were gone, a young girl named Goldilocks stumbled upon their cabin. The door was open so she went inside. She tried the porridge. One was too hot. One was too cold. But the third was just right. She ate until it was gone.
Next, she went to the living room to watch some television. She sat in one chair after another. One was too big. One was too narrow. The last one was just creepy, but it broke when she tried to sit on it.
She was tired, so she went upstairs to find a bed. There were three skeletons in the bedroom. The first bed was too hard. The second was too soft. But the last one was just right. She fell asleep.
That’s when the three black cats came home. Papa Bear stared at his porridge. “Someone took a bite of my porridge.” Mama Bear said, “Someone took a bite of my witch.” Baby Bear laughed. “Someone ate my porridge all up so now I get pancakes, right?”
Papa Spider decided they needed to check the other rooms for the intruder. They went into the living room first. Papa Bear checked his chair. “Someone sat in my chair.” Mama Bear repeated, “Someone sat in my chair.” Baby Bear said, “Someone broke my chair. Can I have a bean bag now?”
Papa dragged them up the stairs to the bedroom. When they walked in, they stared at the bed closest to the door. Papa Bear said, “Someone has been sleeping in my bed.” Mama Bear said, “Someone has been sleeping in my grave.” Baby Bear pointed. “Look, someone is sleeping in my bed right now! Can I keep her?”
Goldilocks woke up then. She saw the three ghosts and jumped out the nearest window. The scare taught her a lesson, and she never again went into a home without an invitation.
