Wicked After Dark Blog Hop!!!

Hey everyone and welcome to this stop on the hop! I'm Night Tempest, writer of steamy, online M/M romance stories. And I might have an obsession with hunky, blade wielding vampires. *laughs* I'm also a huge fan of all things Wicked and Halloween. So, I think I'm covered in both departments. :)  I'd like to thank Close Encounters With The Night Kind and Natasha Blackthorne for putting this all together. Great job ladies!

Whether you're into something wicked or something spooky, books can always give you a taste of what you're looking for.  In honor of this hop and because I'm sure you will all find an author or two that strikes your fancy in the links below, I'm doing a HUGE gift-card giveaway. Four lucky winners will be taking home the following:

2 Barnes & Noble Gift Cards ($25 value each)

2 Amazon Gift Cards ($25 value each)

To enter to win, please comment at the bottom with:

Your name

A valid email address

A comment for me :) and be sure to include your gift card preference!

Enter to win in the comments section at the bottom of this post. Also make sure to check out the other bloggers listed in the links below. There are TONS of awesome giveaways and you have until November 1st to enter. Over 200 prizes? *fans self* Oh my! 

I'll be posting my winners, as well as emailing them, on November 2! Thanks everyone and keep hopping.


  1. Night, I am sure you never tire of the compliments :-). But I love your writing. You are so creative and I love how you paint a picture with your words. I am one of your greedy fans that always begs for more updates. Are you trying to get your work published? If so, I will definitely be one of your first customers.

    And thanks for the give away. I would love an Amazon gift card.


  2. night i just want to say thank you for sharing your work with us for free like you have.i am a huge fan and always will be.

    i would really love a Amazon gift card


  3. Night I would first like to thank u for writing and sharing with us and second say that I love reading your stories starting with Cade and up to present. I can't forget all your quickies and Fangspace( which makes me laugh hysterically) since all of those rock too. I would also like 2 say thanks for all the drool worthy pics u have posted so we all can get an idea of the characters:)

    Thanks for the giveaway I would love a B&N gift card.


  4. Definetly in the group with being your slave fans. I wait for your words on beck and call. Ill be out on the town and be like 'I wonder if Night posted so ill look on my phone'...serious. Brilliant works. Thanks again for everything.
    witchinreader@gmail.com and id like to be placed in the barnes and noble please.

  5. I am officially and Night Tempest stalker!! LOL!! I love your work and cannot wait for more stories from you in the future.


    Christy Williams christyw744@hotmail.com Amazon please

  6. Hey Night, another obsessed fan here. I also just want to say thanks for all of the great stories you give us. No matter what story it is it is always incredible. I stalk your page checking for updates a hundred times a day, then if there is something that gets posted I literally drop everything to read it. Even when I'm at work which is sort of awkward because I will randomly laugh out loud, or start crying, or sometimes get a little to......warm :) Anyway, thanks again Night.

    If I'm lucky enough to win I would prefer the Amazon card. Thanks.


  7. Night,

    I'm incredibly addicted to your writing and will check your blog at least twice a day, even if I know there won't be anything new--can't help myself--and then the world sort of shuts down around me if there is one of those miraculous new posts. For example: My friend and I were hanging out and literally held my hand up, told her to give me a bit, and read the preview for chapter 5 of Knox and Isaac before making frustrated comments about being teased and moving on with out conversation--best part being, that she's so used to it, she just patiently waited and didn't even question.
    So, thank you for being a little bright spot in my life.

    I would love, love, LOVE an Amazon card if I won. Thank you.


  8. Thanks for all the great stories that you've given to me and your other readers. Some of the stories are so complicated with so much going on that I don't know how you can keep everything straight in your head. Sometimes, I have to go back and re-read chapters or portions of chapters. But what wonderful storytelling! Thanks for the very generous giveaway and my choice is a Amazon card.

  9. Dear Night,
    Thank you for sharing your amazing stories with us you have an incredible way with words and a generous spirit.
    Although I never look a gift horse in the mouth if I had a choice I would choose an Amazon gift card. Happy Halloween!

  10. Hey there Night,
    Happy Halloween everyone
    You are as real a writer as any I've read. Don't let anyone tell you different. Also I just finished Tattoos and Tea Cups LOVED IT!!!!
    Email: Reignofwinter@gmail.com
    I prefer Amazon but who doesn't love Barnes and Nobel too.

  11. Your stories are amazing and so well-written. I can't wait for the next updates on *everything*, especially Knox and Isaac ;)
    Either is good though Barns and Nobel if I must pick.

  12. I have enjoyed all your stories and look forward to updates on Knox and Isaac as well as your new and up coming stories...


    Love them both but if i had to pick one....Barnes and Nobel

    Barnes and Nobel.

    Hi Night,
    Ive been a terrible terrible terrible stalker lately. Soooo sorry :(
    However I am slowing digging my way out of the mess life has been and am getting caught up on the boys. Yay!And I am also reading the Party Boys Guide to Dating a Geek, its extra funny because almost all of the tips apply to my girlfriend.

  14. Ashlynn

    I love love love all of your stories. You're an amazing writer. I read everything from Greek mythology to gay stories and yours are some of the best I've ever read. Keep writing because I'll always be reading. (I'm sure lots of other people will be too) :D

  15. Night, thank you for the giveaway. Happy Halloween!!!
    Amazon preference

  16. Night,

    I love your stories, and look forward to any and all published versions of your fabulous creations. I stalk your blog for updates practically daily even if I don't always comment. Most importantly, your interviews, recommendations and of course, the Blog Hop have introduced me to so many other great authors.

    Thank you for the beautiful vampires, your great humor, the amazing stories and ... the giveway. (Amazon preference)


  17. Hello Night, it would be amazing to win but if I don't thats ok. First and foremost, thank you for the wonderful stories you have given us. The fact that you have written all these amazing, heart wrenching, head throbbing (if you know what I mean ;) hahahaha) stories and given to us without asking for anything in return shows how much you care for us, your readers. I check daily on my phone for any new stories and I squeak like a lil girl when something new has been posted. Not only am I huge fan of the Night series ( idk if thats there name or not but thats hat I call the cade books) I loved your Valentine story involving Cupid. Every story you write, I end up losing myself and getting so into the story, I end up yelling at the characters when they do something stupid and forget they can't hear me. Anyway thanks so much for the stories!!!

    I would love the Barnes and Nobles card

    You will remain my favorite online author.
    I'm patiently waiting,impatiently, for Isaac and Knox's next chap and the fallout from their mating.

    As the various couples have developed, I think K and I are the most interesting, fascinating and maybe the Hottest.

    While I'm waiting I ve come across some other authors who also have a great attitude in their writing. Currently I'm reading Josephine Myles a very hot-reading author(*the Pole Dancer* and *the Hot Floor*)
    Thanks for the giveaway!!

  19. Hi Night, I love you stories so much. I constantly check to see if have updated any new chapters, or even new stories to you blog! Keep up the awesome work:)Thanks for the giveaway

  24. Fabulous Giveaway! Thanks for getting wicked with us this Halloween. :)

  25. Hey girl. So I cruised some of these other blogs to see if I could find something that even comes close to rockin' my world like your writing does, but nothing came close. This is gonna sound crazy but after reading every scrap of your writing, you have pretty much ruined me for finding anything else halfway interesting anymore lol! I was obsessed with 50 Shades of Grey right before I found you on Lit, then your blog...and let me tell you...that woman's writing doesn't hold a candle to yours, and she was #1 on the best sellers list forever! I can't wait till you get published. So I just wanted to give you the props and love I think you deserve for all your hard work. Your stories have really got me tbrough a shitty time, so thank you sooo much Night.

Your writing is so well done, your characters are so strong - I love that they have their flaws too, makes it more real! - and the stories just keep surprising me! Once I think you cannot do better - you do! And I love it! Keep it up!

  61. So I'm feeling a little bad because you are a new to me author, and by reading everyones (well not everyone) comments I think I have missed out. I'm looking forward to reading your books and glad I found you, finding new to me authors is what makes the hops fun. Thx

    blinkysthebest at aol dot com
    Either gift card works for me

  62. Hey Night! As you know by now I am a huge fan of yours. I just love your world building but the way your characters come to life is what keeps me coming back for more. I can tell you are your own characters greatest fan and we can feel your pain and joy of writing it.
    The way you always find ways to appreciate your fans (like this give away or fun stuff like fang space)is awesome. I sure hope I can lay my hands on that amazon certificate.

  63. Tammy
    If I get the honor to win I would love an Amazon gift card.
