'True Blood' contest connects fans with Bill & Pam

 To correspond with the fifth season DVD release of True Blood, HBO is running an interactive contest to allow fans a chance to win a DVD virtual signing with stars Stephen Moyer (Bill Compton) and Kristin Bauer van Straten (Pam De Beaufort).

The contest, hosted by the official True Blood Twitter feed @TrueBloodHBO, began on May 13 and will run through May 17. The "Psalms of Lilith" contest asks fans to fill in the missing words from a Psalm of Lilith (#fillintheblood). The top 10 submissions for each Psalm will win an autographed copy of the release. The winners will be announced the day after their tweet on the official contest site www.FillInTheBlood.com.

Specific details taken from the press release state that, at 12 noon PST/3 pm EST on Tuesday May 21 (the DVD's street date) Moyer and Bauer van Straten will participate in a virtual signing live from Bill Compton's mansion on the True Blood set. During the time, they will read the winning tweets, sign DVD copies and answer submitted questions from fans. The signing will stream live on a True Blood Ustream channel.

Added the press release, "Winners will also receive a copy of their winning tweet on an old-world styled parchment as a keepsake, along with other prizes." Yup, that's one fancy tweet.

Will you be participating?
