This competition is now closed.

The winner will be notified by email within 4 weeks of the closing date. Please see terms and conditions for more information.

Create your very own 60-second Burned video trailer to be in with a chance of winning a fantastic goodie bag packed with over £100 worth of House of Night prizes (not to mention the everlasting envy and admiration of every other Fledgling on the planet…)

To celebrate the release of Burned –book seven in your absolute favourite vampire series, House of Night– we here at have teamed up with MyBliss and Sugarscape to offer you the chance to create the Official UK Video Trailer for Burned!

The winning trailer will appear in a future news post here on, and as part of a special feature article on both and

As if that wasn’t enough, the creator of the best trailer and six runners-up will also receive a veritable cornucopia of House of Night goodies (namely a hardback copy of Burned, a complete set of House of Night series coloured-edges collectors’ edition paperbacks, a House of Night series t-shirt, a Dark Daughters necklace donated by P.C. Cast herself, and a House of Night series tote bag all worth over £100!)

Burned sees High Priestess Zoey Redbird take a somewhat unscheduled vacation in the underworld. With evil immortal Neferet keen to keep her there, it looks as though Zoey’s luck might be about to run out!

All you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is create a unique video trailer for the UK edition of Burned and upload it to your favourite online video sharing website.
