What’s Been Scaring Us So Far…

My blog has been overtaken by creepy posts for the past week… And there’s more where that came from.

Want to know what you may have missed so far?

Coming up tomorrow there will be another week’s worth of creepy book recommendations by new guest authors… so stay tuned.


Also, let me try to entice you about what’s coming on Halloween: a big books giveaway!

I will be giving away prize packs made up of books and ARCs donated by my publisher Penguin Teen and signed books and scary recommendations donated by the guest authors. What books might you be able to win, you ask? Here’s a peek:

Donated by Penguin Teen: The Replacement and The Space Between by Brenna Yovanoff, Nightshade and Wolfsbane by Andrea Cremer, Harbinger by Sara Wilson Etienne, Ripper by Stefan Petrucha, The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson, Born Wicked by Jessica Spotswood, and Virals and Seizure by Kathy Reichs.

Donated by the guest authors: some of the creepy books they recommended as well as some of their own books—SIGNED!

Donated by, um, me: Imaginary Girls by someone you may know (hint: you’re on her blog right now)—and yeah it’ll be signed.

(Please note: I’m sorry, but this giveaway will be US only; you will need a US mailing address in order to win.)

Want to know how you can gain extra entries before the Halloween giveaway even starts? 

It’s simple. Just comment on the guest blogs. Every guest blog you comment on will give you one extra entry in the giveaway, if you decide to enter. (Commenting itself won’t enter you… you’ll have to fill out the entry form on October 31 to officially enter and then I’ll give you extra points for every comment.)

Thanks for reading! And thank you to the guest bloggers for making time to be a part of this. And, finally, one special shout-out to Nina LaCour, whose guest blog gave me a very disturbing dream last night!
