It’s sort of like the Monster Mash, only when it’s over, prizes are given away, new friends are made, and more than one limb will be devoured. By me.
I was on my near-daily trek of Google Reader when I stumbled over to Milo James Fowler’s site, where (to my surprise and delight) I found he’d made mention of me in his latest post. It seems I’ve done *something* right, be it my frequent mention of disembowelment or my gleeful desecration of the English language.
But that’s for another day. *Today* I’m posting because Milo’s post also presented the aforementioned Coffin Hop. As soon as I read about it, I knew I wanted in. It’s a blog tour that occurs from the 24th till the 31st of October. On those days you hop from blog to blog (using the handy-dandy Coffin Hop list) and meet new writers, enter contests, and pretty much have a grand ol’ time. There’s still time to sign up as a participating blog. And really, as long as you’re up to writing a blog post and hosting a contest, I can’t think of a single reason *not* to sign up.
As for my own contest, I’m going to give it a really good think. I’ve been collecting many treats to give away for when my novel is released (coming oh so soon!), so I have plenty of goodies on hand. I’m thinking something along the lines of a Halloween Mystery Bag Giveaway.
How does that tickle you?
