#ReVamped Relay - Team #SebastiansAngels




Title: ReVamped
Author: Ada Adams
*click title to add to Goodreads and authors name to follow on twitter*

"A simple mission turned deadly.

Nineteen-year-old vampire Dawn has led a sheltered life within the confines of her father’s presidential headquarters. Upon being sent on a mission to revamp four goofy misfits into guardians of a peaceful little town of Angel Creek, Dawn believes that all her dreams have finally come true. What starts off as a simple task, turns into something unexpected, changing Dawn’s life forever and leading the action-loving, thrill-seeking vampire teen on a path of mystery, danger and intrigue.

When a human girl is kidnapped by a group of rogue vamps, Dawn discovers that there is more going on in Angel Creek than meets the eye. And it all connects to Ethan, the cute newcomer who seems too perfect to be true, Sebastian, the mysterious vampire with a turbulent past, and even Dawn herself. Dawn must not only succeed in revamping the troubled recruits, but must also prevent the vampire race from being overtaken by a malevolent villain who has a strange and obsessive fascination with her. As threat escalates, romance blooms, and ghosts from her past begin to surface, Dawn is sure of only one thing: her life will never be the same."

Now folks, if you want to know what this relay is all about, you need to read on for all the info you should need. 
Author of ReVamped, Ada Adams, has asked people who have read the book if they would like to participate in an event that would spread the book throughout the world - this event is known as the ReVampedRelay. 

Read on for more information from Ada:

"I know that purchasing print books can often be costly. I also know that many readers prefer to read print copies vs. electronic ones. Therefore, I devised a fun, interactive, and economical way for readers to get their hands on a print copy of ReVamped!

On May 15th, I will be sending out 5 print copies of “ReVamped” to readers interested in reading the book. These readers will hail from different corners of the world and will be the five “ReVamped Relay” Team Leaders!

These readers will:

1. Read the book.

2. Post a short review (anywhere!)

Suggested places: Blog, Amazon, B&N, Goodreads, Twitter, Facebook, etc.
The review could be as short as one or two sentences or longer. You can even Tweet the review and it will count. Just make sure that you save the link.

3. Sign in HERE.

Name, Location, Team Name, Review Link.
(ex. Sarah A., Toronto, Canada, www.amazon/twitter/facebook/goodreads/reviewlink.com)
*Why is this important? Read the “Prizes” section to find out!*

4. Share the book.

It’s up to the reader to choose who to share the book with. This could be a friend or a family member, someone from school, someone in another town, or someone from a completely different corner of the world! Please ensure that this person is interested in reading “ReVamped” and participating in the relay, so that we can make sure they will also pass on the book. Ideally, the goal is to see how far the book can travel and how many homes (and hopefully hearts!) it can reach.

*Please understand that I’m doing this with the belief that all participants will follow an honor code and pass on the book after reading. This is a fun way to read a book, connect with friends, as well as make new ones along the way, so you do need to be an active and honest participant for it to work!

Now, for the PRIZES! :)

Every month, we will tally up the readers from each of the five teams. This is why it’s important for everyone to sign in after finishing the book. The team with the largest amount of points will be declared that month’s winner!!

Point System:

1 point for each group member that signs their name
1 point for each city that the book travels to
2 poinst for each state/province that the book reaches
3 points for each different country

Example:

A book that makes its way from Toronto, ON to Buffalo, NY to New York, NY and reaches ten readers.
10 members: 10x1=10
3 cities: 3x1=3
2 states/provinces: 2x2=4
2 countries: 2x3=6
Total Score: 23

All members from the winning team will be placed in a draw for “ReVamped” goodies (print copies of the book, posters, bookmarks, etc.) 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners will be declared every month. The numbers are re-set after each month, and a new tally starts up, so that every team has an equal chance of winning each month. However, the member names don’t re-set, so if you were part of the Month One team, you still can win during the Month Two or Month Three draws.

*If you’re active on Twitter and participating in the relay, please use the following hashtag: #ReVampedRelay. I will be following you and RT-ing along the way! If you’re interested in being a part of the relay once it’s already underway, you can Tweet @Ada_Adams and I will RT. Hopefully, someone who has the book sees it and decides to send it your way!*

The teams are headed by five amazing bloggers (see below for their information). These bloggers (who have already read and loved ReVamped – YAY!!), will be responsible for starting off the ReVamped Relay and passing on the print copy of the book to interested readers. The readers may consist of fellow book bloggers or “civilian” readers.

*********************************

So what does this all mean for YOU the reader, in short?

It means that you have the chance to read ReVamped for free, your only obligation when you sign up is that you need to send out the book to the next reader once you have finished, at your own cost. Also, if you are a blogger/reviewer, it would be good if you could leave a review - 
If you aren't a blogger/reviewer it would still be good if you could put a paragraph up on Amazon UK & US plus Goodreads & Shelfari if you are a member. After all, it helps the team win points and we all know what points mean... PRIZES!! :)

So what I am asking my UK followers is, do you want to be part of Team #SebastiansAngels?
If so, please contact me on the email underneath my details in the above list - giving me your Twitter name (where possible) and your mailing address. 
The way I have chosen to do it is, I take people's names & addresses and you will go on my list in order of signing up - then the book will be passed on to each of you in that order.

My Team Members so far are:

CARLY CHAMBERS (Fiction Fascination)
KAYLEIGH (K-Books)
JOSIE NOONAN 
& CARA WHITE

Want to join my ranks? You know what to do! :)

Please remember, you DON'T have to be a blogger to participate, just a reader!!
(are you someone who enjoys an awesome vampire book?)


I want you on my team so that we can have fun together, WIN prizes and essentially, spread the word about ReVamped and it's wonderful author. 
So if you think you have what it takes, please join in!


Want to see the sorts of prizes we can win? Of course you do....






So there we have all the pretties we could lay our hands on...
*Gollum voice: My Preciousssssssssss*


If you aren't in the UK but want to participate, please contact the Team via email: revampedrelay@gmail.com stating the name from the above list. ( i.e If you live in the US - contact the leaders Jessirae & Ren by putting Team #EthansLegion in the subject line of your email)
The other teams are lead by awesome people and they would be only too happy to have you in their ranks! :)

If you have any questions at all, feel free to contact me and I will aim to provide the necessary answers! (or point you in the right direction lol)
