Halloween is only NINE days away! Not like I'm counting or anything. Not that I'm excited. Nope, not at all.
Since my book, Cinderskella, is inspired by all things Halloween, I thought it would be perfect to host a contest in honor of my (its-only-one-year-to-Cinderskella's-release-date) book!
So....its a super simple contest. Just leave a comment about your funniest, cutest, scariest, spookiest Halloween costume, party or moment and I'll vote on my favorite! The only rule: Please keep your comments G-rated. While I love all things Halloween, I prefer the Disney version of things ;)
My favorite Halloween costume is to pin smarties candies all over my pants and go as a "Smarty Pants"
My favorite Halloween experience was when I was a teenager living in New York. I worked at Haunted Hayride and would get "hung" by an executioner 30 times a night. I was harnessed into this contraption and a trap door would open beneath me, where I would then fall through the door (but really being supported by a hidden harness) and appear as though I had been hung. One night the contraption broke, including my harness, and I fell about 6 feet through a small wooden door. It wasn't funny at the time because I did get seriously injured (later requiring neck surgery for the injury I sustained) but I think back now and laugh at how stunned the audience was. They kept saying how "real" it looked. Yup. That's because it was! No acting required on that one!
Now it's time to hear your costume ideas and Halloween experiences!
What's in it for you, you ask? Well, you get to have loads of fun sharing your stories and/or costume ideas. Plus, you'll automatically be entered to win one of my favorite spooky Halloween reads - All The Lovely Bad Ones and Waith Till Helen Comes! Mary Downing Hahn is kind of like the master of middle-grade ghost stories, so even if you don't win, be sure to pick up one of her spine-tingling reads this Halloween!
Two winners will each get to select one of the following paperback books:
Contest ends Monday, October 29th. Winners will be chosen and contacted by Tuesday, October 30th! Open to US and Canada only.
