A Haunted Contest

SEE THE WINNERS HERE (Prizes must be claimed by October 31)


In honor of the Tuesday release of WHERE ALL THE DEAD LIE:

I thought we'd do something different this time around. Since this is a book that at its heart is a ghost story, I thought it might be fun for you to share your own personal brush with a ghost, or share your favorite ghostly story.

To enter, all you have to do is leave your ghoulish tale in the comments.*

On October 15, I will announce the winners.

At stake:

2 copies of the fabulous DVD CASTLE GHOSTS OF SCOTLAND

3 $25 giftcards to the winners' choice of bookstore

5 copies of Daphne du Maurier's REBECCA 

and signed bookplates to all entries.

Winners will be drawn at random from the comments - all save 1.

GRAND PRIZE: The creepiest, scariest, spookiest tale will be my Halloween gift to my readers - with your permission and byline, of course. I'll send it to all of my newsletter list and post it on my blog, Facebook and Twitter. Word limit is 1500 or less.

My editor and I will do the judging, so make it good!

*For safety sake - I highly recommend you write your story in Word or RTF format, then copy and paste into the comments, so you don't do a lot of great work then lose it. It doesn't happen often, but sometimes, Squarespace likes to clear its throat.
