Buffy takes down Edward Cullen?!?!

I'm no Buffy fan, but this is hilarious. (Take it in stride,'s just a spoof!) Many KUDOS goes out to Jonathan McIntosh at for really clever editing!

Get the first chapter of The Van Alen Legacy delivered to you for FREE!

As many of you know, Melissa De La Cruz's Blue Bloods series continues with book #4, to be published on October 6th. It is titled, The Van Alen Legacy, and chronicles the doomed love affair between Schuyler Van Alen and Jack Force, both high-society vampires in Manhattan.

Melissa De La Cruz sent out copies of chapter one of this new book on Friday, June 19th via e-mail. Yours truly received hers, but I have yet to read this juicy tidbit of what is expected to be a very enthralling new book! If you are interested, you too, can receive a copy of the first chapter by emailing the author at: . (This is not a link--copy and paste the address into your email.) Apparently, they will e-mail out the first chapter to anyone who asks for one each Friday until September 1st. For more info, see the entry on Melissa De La Cruz's online diary here.

For those of you who haven't read the series yet, here's a video that kinda summarizes the series in a cool way, but doesn't give away too much of the plot. Enjoy!
