You may have noticed the above button in our sidebar. We are partnering with Billy from Ramblings of a Coffee Addicted Writer for this year's 31 Days of Halloween event ... and WE NEED YOU!
Whether you're an author, publisher, book blogger, or just an average Joe/Jane with a love of books, especially scary ones, we need your help. Here are some of the ways you can help:
We would love to have sponsors hosting different giveaways. The giveaways can consist of gift cards, swag, books, movies based on books, or anything else you can think of. The only stipulation is that we would like to keep it within the Halloween theme, where possible.
If you don't want to sponsor a giveaway but you have books and/or swag you can donate, let us know! You can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what you have. We'll give you our address so you can send it to us and then we'll handle sending it out to the winners.
Got something scary to say? Have something enlightening you want to share about October, Halloween, a scary story or writer? Hit us up! We would love to see what you have to say! You can send your submissions to the same email address as above: email@example.com.
Depending on the amount of submissions we receive, we may not be able to post all of the stories we receive, but we will do our best. If, for some reason, we are unable to use yours, we will be sure to let you know ahead of time.
Scary Story Contest:
Yes, we are hosting a scary story contest! Anybody can enter. Submissions are due by September 24, 2013 to firstname.lastname@example.org, so we have time to read over them and judge them. Stories must be between 1500 and 2000 words. Anything longer will be rejected - and, yes, we will be checking. You are allowed to submit more than one story. We will have 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners. Prizes are to be determined.
If anybody would like to donate to the prizes for this contest, please feel free to let us know at the aforementioned email address.
We are really looking forward to this event and hope you'll join us! =)
