"ReVamped" Reader Relay!

Okay so anyone who has been following my blog, twitter or facebook pages would know how much I LOVED ReVamped by Ada Adams. Seriously! If not then you can check out the multitude of posts here, here and here.
About the book:
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.

So now even more exciting news involving ReVamped and Ada... the ReVamped Reader Relay!

Pretty much Ada wants to give people a chance to read ReVamped, because she knows that buying print copies can be pricey and not everyone wants to read the ebook version. So... she came up with a really wicked interactive way of spreading the love of her book.

On May 10th, she will be sending out five print copies of ReVamped to five ReVamped Relay Teams, from all over the world. The teams are headed by some amazing bloggers (and yep, you got it, I was picked to be on a team). We will be responsible for starting off the ReVamped Relay by passing our copy off to someone who is interested in reading it, this includes bloggers, friends and family.

Here are all of the teams involved:

Sebastian’s Angels© (United Kingdom) #SebastiansAngels
Team Leader: Keren
Twitter: @Gothic_Angel28

Ethan’s Legion (United States) #EthansLegion
Team Leader: Jessirae
Twitter: @xjessirae

Team Leader: Ren
Twitter: @rensrambles

Bastian’s Babes (Canada) #BastiansBabes
Team Leader: Tiffany
Twitter: @Tiff_Mahaffy

Team Leader: Chrystal
Twitter: @snowdropdreams

Sebastianators (Australia) #Sebastianators
Team Leader: Pavan
Twitter: @LovesBooks96

TEAM FIVE? – (Asia)
Ada is still looking for a dedicated team leader from ANYWHERE in Asia who read and *LOVED* ReVamped to join in on the fun!

Now here is how YOU can join in on the fun!

Simply contact the Team Leader closest to you (through Twitter or Email). If you are emailing, please include the team name in the title of the email, so that it doesn’t end up in the spam folder and can be viewed by the right team leader.

 The 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. Email the following information to your Team Leader:
Your Name, Location, Review Link. Please ensure that your team name is in the email title!
(ex. Sarah A., Toronto, Canada,
*Why is this part of the relay 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. Do you have to spend money for shipping? No. You can pass it on by hand. If you want to ship, that’s great as well. The Team Leaders can also be responsible for getting people onto a team reading list, so do check in with them.
5. Bonus.
Sign your name and add any comments into the Reader Notebook that will be travelling with the book. Feel free to sign your name in the book as well!
*Please understand that the Team Leaders and Ada are 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 need to be an active, enthusiastic, and honest participant for it to work.

And not only do you get the chance to read such an amazing vampire book, but there are PRIZES too!

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 point for each state/province that the book reaches
  • 3 points for each different country
A book that makes its way from Toronto, ON to Buffalo, NY to New York, NY and reaches ten readers.
  • 10 members: 10×1=10
  • 3 cities: 3×1=3
  • 2 states/provinces: 2×2=4
  • 2 countries: 2×3=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 and add in @Ada_Adams (or an @ to your Team Leader). We 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 also Tweet @ us and hopefully the book will make its way to you! Come by and join the Facebook Page as well @
If you want to support the relay, without participating (especially if you’ve already read the book), feel free to cheer for a certain team or Tweet about the relay to help spread the word. Every month, Ada will also be selecting a random non-team member Tweets for a little prize based on their #ReVampedRelay Tweets. Ada loves all of her readers and all ReVamped‘s fans and wants to give you the opportunity to also play along.
Just remember, even though this is a contest, it’s all in good fun! The main idea is to get ReVamped out to some readers that may not otherwise have the opportunity to get their hands on it!
 Happy reading and relaying!
