katie salidas one day book blitz with giveaway

please welcome to the blog the amazing katie salidas for her guest post :)
If you were a vampire, where would you want to live? For me, it would be Vegas! Well, I actually do live in Vegas, but no, I’m no vamp ... or am I? LoL.

New York may be known as the City that Never Sleeps, but we local Las Vegans are the true nocturnal creatures.  With a 24 hour lifestyle even your average Joe can be found out an about at 3 in the morning, perhaps doing their shopping for the week or maybe just hitting a bar for a drink after work.

It’s well known that vampires are relegated to the night. You know that whole messy, burst into flames thing whenever sunlight is present. So what better a place than one filled with people up at all hours, right? And let’s not forget that the Strip would be considered something akin to a buffet line filled with a smorgasbord of all kinds of exotic cuisine. In the mood for Asian tonight, how about a little French, or maybe you prefer something a little south of the border? Just head on down to the strip for a bite. Ha!

It’s a place where a vampire can thrive as well as stay hidden. Remember, vampires are supposed to be fiction and fantasy. We humans aren’t supposed to know about them. What better way to hide than in plain sight, in a place where living at night is normal?

In my vampire series, I have a clan of vampires living in a quiet suburban neighborhood in Vegas. They don’t hunt in their neighborhood, but they are able to live there without drawing any attention to themselves. This is where the 24 hour lifestyle really helps. As I said above, your average Joe, living in Vegas, could work the later shifts, as many locals here do. It’s so common there is no reason for nosy neighbors to question why you’re never seen during the day.

You won’t find that happening here in Vegas. No one is going to question a neighbor who sleeps all day and only comes out at night. LoL.

So, yeah, if vampires did exist, they would definitely find a home in Sin City. There is plenty of exotic cuisine, a thriving night life, and a community who won’t question why you aren’t around during the day.

Thanks for reading, and if you want to check out my work, you can find me at

Immortalis Carpe Noctem (Book 1)

Becoming a vampire is easy. Living with the condition... that's the hard part.

Bleeding to death after brutal mugging, twenty-five year old Alyssa is rescued by the most unlikely hero: the handsome and aloof vampire, Lysander.

His gift of immortal blood initiates Alyssa into a frightening, eternally dark world filled with: bloodlust, religious fanaticism, and thousand-year old vendettas.

With Lysander as her guide, Alyssa will have to learn what it takes to survive in the immortal world. She'll have to find the strength to accept her new reality and carpe noctem; or give in, and submit to final death.

Hunters & Prey (Book 2)

Becoming a vampire saved Alyssa from death, but the price was high: the loss of everything and everyone attached to her mortal life. She’s still learning to cope when a surprise confrontation with Santino Vitale, the Acta Sanctorum’s most fearsome hunter, sends her fleeing back to the world she once knew, and Fallon, the friend she’s missed more than anything.

Alyssa breaks vampire law by revealing her new, true self to her old friend, a fact which causes strong division in the group that should support her most: her clan.

Pandora’s Box (Book 3)

After a few months as a vampire, Alyssa thought she’d learned all she needed to know about the supernatural world. But her confidence is shattered by the delivery of a mysterious package – a Pandora’s Box.
Seemingly innocuous, the box is in reality an ancient prison, generated by a magic more powerful than anyone in her clan has ever known. But what manner of evil could need such force to contain it?
When the box is opened, the sinister creature within is released, and only supernatural blood will satiate its thirst. The clan soon learns how it feels when the hunter becomes the hunted.
Apparently powerless against the ancient evil, the clan flees Las Vegas for Boston, with only a slim hope for salvation. Could Lysander’s old journals hold the key? And what if they don’t?
And how welcome will they be in a city run by a whole different kind of supernatural being?
