Congratulations to Alix for being the winner in our ‘Blood Oath’ contest!! She had the most questions correct and the most number of words (339) created from ‘Transylvania’. Her picture of her interpretations of what a vampire looks like didn’t hurt either. :-) Alix will receive a copy of ‘Blood Oath’ by Christopher Farnsworth and my undying (hahaha) gratitude for participating!
