THE WEREWOLF'S GUIDE TO LIFE: REVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
THE WEREWOLF'S GUIDE TO LIFE
BY RITCH DUNCAN
AND BOB POWERS

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Have you been attacked by a wolf-like creature in the last 30 days? Was it after the sun had set and under a full moon? If you answered, “yes” to both these questions, there’s a very good chance that you were bitten by a werewolf. You now have less than a month before the full moon returns and with it your first transformation into a savage, bloodthirsty beast.

Survival is an option, but first, know this:


* Werewolves are real.

* The majority of lycanthropes who do not have access to this book die during or shortly after their first transformations, generally due to heart failure, gunshot wounds, exposure, drowning or suicide.

* Hollywood horror movies are NOT to be used as guides to living as a werewolf. Their goal is not to educate, but to entertain. As a result, they are largely ignorant of the realities of the condition.


* Ignorance creates monsters; lycanthropy does not.

* You are not a monster.

The Werewolf's Guide to Life
cuts through the fiction and guides you through your first transformation and beyond, offering indispensable advice on how to tell if you’re really a werewolf, post-attack etiquette, breaking the news to your spouse, avoiding government abduction, and how to not just survive, but thrive. You cannot afford to not read this book. Your very life depends on it.

ABOUT THE AUTHORS:


RITCH DUNCAN and BOB POWERS have devoted their lives to aiding and serving the lycanthrope community. They live in New York City. If you would like more information about them, I will direct you to their website and you can perhaps get to know them better there...or not?! Here it is and good luck! Official Site: The Werewolf's Guide to Life: A Manual for the Newly Bitten

A REVIEW:

Duncan and Powers must have done extensive research for this handbook. Here a newly bitten werewolf can find out how to handle life and survive as a lycanthrope...or at the very least learn to spell it. No, sorry, I was adding levity to a serious subject. The book is entertaining but also helps a werewolf to know how to handle life's craving without hurting anyone in the process. It tells of the different stages one will go through and how to chain oneself for three nights a month due to the moon stages. It can help one know who to trust and not to trust or tell about this. The author's even include some real people who say they were werewolves and what it was like. The guidebooks is if nothing else, classic tongue-in-cheek humor and enough sarcasm to please most anyone. Just a bit of fun for most, but perhaps a bit of safe knowledge for those who might feel they need it. I think it is so clever and for the werewolf/vampire set in your life, it would make a great stocking stuffer!

I have no opinion, but was intrigued by the werewolves when I read the Twilight books. I'd love a chance! Thanks for the giveaway.

Werewolfs are the cooliest! I love werewolves more than vampires.. I think its cool to read about the nice shapeshifters, but I really like the growly, nasty ones that go around attacking people...LOL +1

Oh please enter me into this contest! Lately, I've been discovering that I have a growing fascination with werewolves....especially when compared to vampires. That is so hard for me to say as a die-hard vampire fan. (Huh, I'm punny.)

I find werewolves to be enthralling ever since seeing the movie Wolfen. There is something so powerful and primal about them. Love to enter.

Werewolves were the "boogey man" of the '80s. We had American Werewolf in London and The Howling and Wolfen, among others (like Stephen King's Silver Bullet). Then vampires seemed to pull ahead, and now Twilight has really brought the two together in a way that I don't think anyone did quite so well before.

An important survival guide for the shelf! Please count me in. Thank you!
