Black rose (LJ Smith)

Win a special rose.

The Vampire Diaries author LJ Smith has found a special way to reward her most ardent fans. She is currently running a special prize giveaway for fans of her books on her website. Smith will be handing out ten black roses to the winners of the competition. Each rose was dipped in black enamel and then trimmed with 24-karat gold. The thorns are also gold plated. The Grand Prize for the competition, however, is completely gold plated and comes with a special note from Smith.

To enter, all you have to do is send an email to, with "Black Rose Contest" in the subject field. The eleven prize winners will be randomly drawn from the compiled entries. Because of the fragility of the prizes, it is only open to residents of the USA.
