The holiday season is off to an early start for fans of True Blood stud Joe Manganiello!

The actor behind Alcide — and his ripped body — are the star and subject of a new fitness and lifestyle book, Evolution: The Cutting Edge Guide to Breaking Down Mental Walls and Building the Body You've Always Wanted.

And in promotion of the book, our friends at XOXO After Dark just celebrated the Twelve Days of Manganiello, posting a hot pic of the actor from Evolution every day.

Today, however, is the bonus thirteenth Day of Manganiello — surprise! — and the site is offering a chance to score sweet Manganiello-centric prizes:

  • Grand Prize: One signed copy of Evolution by Joe Manganiello and seasons 1-4 of True Blood on DVD (each signed by Joe!)

  • Second Place: One signed copy of Evolution by Joe Manganiello, one signed poster of the Evolution cover, and a copy of Magic Mike on DVD

  • Third Place: One signed copy of Evolution by Joe Manganiello

For a shot at this sweet swag, all you need do is comment on the XOXO After Dark post about your favorite of the 12 days… and they've even included all the pics to jog your memory.

Good luck, Joe-Mo fans!
