Ghostly Giveaway

My most recent projects have been centered around one theme… GHOSTS

I have a novel in the works and a short story, plus my MG novel has some ghostly elements to it as well. This is new territory for me and one that I am really enjoying writing.



Therefore, since my mind is on ghosts and All Hallow’s Eve is approaching, I think a Ghostly Giveaway is in order.

The items up for grabs are…

            Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas (book)

            Bone Chillers ice cube tray

            Tip Burton playing cards

            Henry James’ The Turn of the Screw (and other short novels)

The links to these items can be found to the right so you can take a closer look, or order them if you just can’t wait to win.



Now, what do YOU have to do to win?

Pretty easy really…

You have from now until Halloween Night, that’s right, October 31st, 2011, at one minute to midnight (otherwise Halloween will be over, you know) to leave a comment on this post sharing with us your favorite GHOST story or movie. (you can tell us why you like it too)

If you follow this blog or follow me on twitter you can have a second chance to win. Just mention how you follow me and don’t forget to leave a way to contact you with your comment.

Winners will be chosen by random org and announced on this blog by November 1st.



Thank you for sharing your favorite GHOSTS with us and good luck guys and ghouls!

Hmm...favorite ghost story? I'll go with two actually (if that's okay...*gulp*) and they are not your typical choices either. First up, A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. Though Christmas in time of year and theme, it IS a ghost story, chock full of them I might add...and just try and tell me that the Ghost of Christmas Future doesn't startle you at least a LITTLE bit! Second choice is a YA read that features a young lady that can communicate with ghosts....INTRINSICAL by Lani Woodland. Quite the story and definitely proves that while not all spirits are bad...those that are can DEFINITELY wreak some havoc. Thanks for the contest...and the chance to share our ghostly delights. Happy Halloween...and happy reading!

GMR, I think A Christmas Carol total works for a ghost story, and one that has influenced many that have come since. I haven't read Intrinsical, so I'll have to take a look!
Thanks for the comment!

Favorite ghost story? But that's hard. I love ghosts. Let's think... How about the Casper movie? That was pretty cute. Of my horror movie collection, I'd have to say Paranomal Activity.

Thanks for the sweet giveaway.

I loved Beth Gutcheon's MORE THAN YOU KNOW, which had multiple paranormal ghostly stories intertwined with a present day family and an 1800s family. It was literary and ghostly at the same time!

And I'm totally hooked on Paranormal State on the SyFy Channel. Love watching Ghost Hunters as well. Too many unexplainable things have happened to me and others I know personally for me not to entertain the thought!

Happy Halloween!
