The Super Stupendous Halloween Spooktacular—or FREE BOOKS and STUFF!!!

I ♥ Halloween. It’s my favorite time of year. We finally get some cooler weather around here, and I love dressing my kidlets up and taking them Trick-or-Treating.

So, what better time to have a contest?

Here’s what the lucky winner will receive:

Brand new hardcover copy of THE SHIFTER by Janice Hardy

THE HOLLOW by Jessica Verday

Update: Since it's Halloween, I decided we needed to add some SCARY STORIES TO TELL IN THE DARK by Alvin Schwartz :)

And The Forest of Hands and Teeth by Carrie Ryan

Plus other writerly goodies—pens, pencils, notebooks, etc. Aren’t office supplies awesome?

Here’s how to enter:

+1 leave a comment

+4 if you’re already a follower
+3 for becoming a follower

+2 for posting a link in your sidebar (leave a comment with a link)
+5 for blogging or twittering about and linking to the contest (leave a comment with a link)

And in keeping with the Halloween spirit, I want to see all of your best (or worst :D) Halloween costumes.


+10 for posting a photo of yourself on your blog, or elsewhere online, showing off your best Halloween apparel (leave me a comment with a link) Or, if you’d like, I can post them here. Send me an email. :)

Ends Halloween (Oct 31) at midnight PST. The winner will be announced Monday, November 2nd.

Happy haunting! :D


  1. I want to read both of these books, so I am following you here (and on Twitter now too), and I retweeted your contest post :)

  2. Man, you know how to feed my addictions, I would enter this for the office supplies alone. Hubby says I'm not allowed in Office Depot alone anymore. :(

    I'm unplugging this week, but I will definitely plug your contest on my sidebar. As for Halloween pics, I may be able to dig some up somewhere...

  3. Yaaaay for Halloween, and for contests! I'm already a follower--please enter me :).

    Thanks, Abby!

  4. I'm dying to read both of those. Oh, I hope I win! :) Okay, so I'm entered 5 times, now. I'll have to do the rest and get back to you.

  5. I love Halloween, too. Man, it's been a long time since I've dressed up and don't think I have any digitals of my costumes. I'll have to look.

    I've been a faithful follower for some time now.

    Like Tere, I'm addicted to office supplies, but books, too. Please enter me in the contest. Thanks.
