“MAD” for Dakota Cassidy’s AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN HOBOKEN

Well, hello there, ladies and gentlemen!!! DAKOTA CASSIDY HAS A BOOK OUT TODAY!!!! *flails*

Ok… sorry… I have now composed myself. I love Dakota’s books, and I’m pretty fond of the lady, herself… so when she announced the updated, rerelease of AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN HOBOKEN, I was thrilled!! And to help celebrate, we’re going to play one of my favorite games. Mad Libs!! Just in case you’re not familiar with how Mad Libs work… here’s how we’re going to do this…

1618416_10152397604128064_3358377195495392446_nDakota has shared an excerpt with me from the book. I’ve chosen words from one passage, in strategic places, and made a list of their parts of speech. Below is the list that corresponds with the passage. In the comments section, leave me YOUR list of words that match the parts of speech. PLEASE KEEP YOUR LIST NUMBERED… this way I can match up the right word to the excerpt. The game will continue until 10pm Eastern (7pm Pacific) on Friday. At which time I’ll update the post with the actual excerpt from the book.  I’ll also post (as a comment reply) the filled in passage for each of you, so you can see how YOUR WORDS effected the passage. This is generally hilarious, and can be made more so by using your imagination and making a really creative wordlist.

I will also randomly chose one commenter to WIN a FREE ecopy of AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN HOBOKEN from B&N!!

******UPDATE***********

Ok, all… the game has closed, and the contest is over. First… here’s the full excerpt from the book…

His stomach roared its discontent. Good hell, he was hungry.

But could he afford to indulge in morsels of succulent calf seared to perfection right now? They’d be easy enough to snatch from some unsuspecting diner’s table.

No. There was no time to waste because he was too damn busy playing this ridiculous game of “here, doggy, doggy.” Which he wouldn’t be doing if it weren’t for the alleged vision.

A sharp whistle stopped him in his tracks and again his ears twitched to the tune of two men yelling, “Here, boy! C’mon, puppy!”

That’s Mr. Werewolf to you.

Max flared his nostrils and huffed in distaste. Puppy. He was no damn puppy.

As he sought shelter, he had to wonder, did it get any worse than this? Hoofing the streets like some desolate stray, searching for what his Aunt Eva claimed was his prophecy?

In Hoboken, New Jersey?

Yet, here he was, prophecy hunting. Because that’s what everyone in his pack did. When the call came, they all had a destiny to fulfill. No one ignored the call.

Especially not Max. Because he liked living.

He held an intense disdain for all the mumbo-jumbo folklore bullshit beaten into his psyche since he was a child, but there was no proof he wouldn’t die if he didn’t mate by the first full moon after meeting his destiny.

So mate he would.

The bolded area is what we used for the Mad Lib. I’m SO excited to read this!!!

Now, for the winner of the ebook… ::drumroll::

VALERIE

    As he sought a taco, he had to wonder, did it get any harder than this? Running the streets like some sweaty stray, searching for what his Aunt Eva claimed was his pony?

    In Hoboken, beach?

    Yet, here he was, prophecy hunting. Because that’s what everyone in his candle did. When the call came, they all had a friend to play. No one ate the call.

    In Hoboken, Europe?

    Yet, here he was, prophecy hunting. Because that’s what everyone in his computer did. When the call came, they all had a phone to drink. No one paused the call.

  9. Comment by Jennifer:

    As he sought a trash truck, he had to wonder, did it get any stickier than this? Swelling the streets like some dirty stray, searching for what his Aunt Eva claimed was his panties?

    In Hoboken, Disneyland?

    Yet, here he was, prophecy hunting. Because that’s what everyone in his pens did. When the call came, they all had a rubber band to pleasure. No one ran the call.

    As he sought a dog, he had to wonder, did it get any shinier than this? Going the streets like some fluffy stray, searching for what his Aunt Eva claimed was his spaceship?

    In Hoboken, Japan?

    Yet, here he was, prophecy hunting. Because that’s what everyone in his bubble did. When the call came, they all had a kelp to swim. No one laughed the call.

    As he sought a jock strap, he had to wonder, did it get any fuzzier than this? Belching the streets like some purple stray, searching for what his Aunt Eva claimed was his bra?

    In Hoboken, The Pink Pagoda Topless Bar?

    Yet, here he was, prophecy hunting. Because that’s what everyone in his rubber ducky did. When the call came, they all had a bathtub to twerk. No one crawled the call.

    As he sought a bike, he had to wonder, did it get any hairier than this? Drinking the streets like some bitter stray, searching for what his Aunt Eva claimed was his TV?

    In Hoboken, circus?

    Yet, here he was, prophecy hunting. Because that’s what everyone in his table did. When the call came, they all had a RV to cut. No one punked the call.
