I am a huge fan of all things Halloween. I love creepy stories. I like to eat candy. I love to dress up and get into character. I love this holiday because it does not take itself all that seriously, yet its fans take it so very seriously. It's all good.
I am participating in the Helluva Halloween Challenge, which is hosted by the Book Rat. This Challenge is an awesome collection of book reviews, craft-offs, games and goodies. It's super fun and I'm joining in with a little challenge to all of you and a giveaway reward for TWO random winners. If there are more than fifty entrants for this contest, I will add another prize. It'll be amazing.
Here is what you need to do to enter:
Pretend that you are a character in a paranormal YA book. What is your paranormal identity? Are you a vampire? A werewolf? A zombie? Something else? Give a name to your character and a bit of your story.
Here's an example from me. If I were a character in a paranormal book, I'd be a zombie named Mrs. DeadRaps. I would roam the earth in search of literary brains. And then I'd eat them. No author of any genre would be safe! Poets, journalists, horrible jingle-writers for commercials--No one would escape me! And, here's a visual (in case you couldn't image me as a zombie):
That's my sample. Have fun creating your own! You can either post your answers in the comments section of this blog, or create a post and use the Mr. Linky provided. If you create a post and win, I'll throw in a little extra something for you.
Uninspired? Don't know where to start? Here are some name generators to get you going:
Ghost Name Generator
Vampire Name Generator
Werewolf Name Generator
Zombie Name Generator
And, on to the prizes!
I have one ARC of The Dead-Tossed Waves by Carrie Ryan up for grabs for the first place winner.
I also have a Team Zombie or Team Unicorn button for another winner.
(And an extra surprise if there are more than 50 entrants!)
So, enter away! This contest closes on Halloween night--October 31st at midnight (EST). How ghoulish is that? And, remember to leave an email with your entry if you're just commenting so that I can contact you if you win.
(Unfortunately, this giveaway is only open to paranormal characters who reside within the US. I will be hosting an international giveaway soon.)
