E-trick or Treat!

Posted by Liz Jasper | 2:31 PM | 5 comments »

...with Liz Jasper and other Fantasy, Paranormal, and Horror Authors! The winner gets a giant bag of wonderful Halloweeny books and prizes, including a signed copy of Underdead! It's easy and fun and everyone over eighteen can play! (That MIGHT seem to smack of ageism, but hey, those of us over 18 can't do real trick or treating any more unless we drag small children along, so, well, we need books and treats from this contest!)

Here's how:
Start anytime between Monday, October 27 and Friday, October 31 by trick or treating at author websites. What does this mean? Starting at the first site, read a quick excerpt and "pick a treat from their goody bag" by choosing among a selection of guestimates at what the character is thinking in that particular scene. See if you can separate the treats from the tricks! Email your response to the author with the link provided and then follow the directions to the next site.

There are 13 places in all. The contestant who does the best job at choosing the treats from the tricks wins the giant bag of prizes all for themselves. So they can sit there surrounded by good books and fun prizes and chocolate and stick it to all the people who didn't win.

Trick or treat!!!

Wanna play?

    What fun Liz, a really great idea. I could sure use some new reading material. Wouldn't that be great!

    Mary, I'm pulling for you. : )

    Sounds like fun! For adults only.

    What a fun idea and a great way to get people to visit different sites.

    Do I need to be pulling for both Mary's and Cyndi?

    What I like about the contest is it allows readers to learn about some new books by reading short excerpts. Maybe it's just me, but I like reading inside cover sort of excerpts. It's how I find lots of good books.
