It seems like time flies as fast as a bat out of a cave. It's hard to believe that the holidays are just around the corner. So, of course, I had to have my next blogfest contest be a Halloween theme.
Can you leave us breathless? On October 21 post an excerpt from your novel or other writings to your blog. If you want, you can write something new for the contest. Only one entry per participant. It can be up to 300 words (if the allotted word count falls in the middle of a sentence than go to the end). It can be scary. It could be a romance. A thrill ride. A twist. It can be any genre. All you have to do is make us gasp. You can end with a cliff hanger. You can get gory. Whatever. Just leave us breathless.
From October 21-23 hop to the other participants' blogs and comment. A team of secret judges will be hopping along too, choosing their favorites. On October 24th the semi-finalists will be announced on my blog and you all can vote for your favorites.
Yes, there are prizes. Here are the treats you could nab . . .
$35 gift certificate from Cassandra Marshall, agent intern, freelance editor, writer extraordinaire.
|Cassandra Marshall's Website|
$35 gift certificate from Taryn Albright, agent intern, editor with Teen Eyes Editorial Services, college student, YA writer sage.
$30 gift card from Amazon.
The first place winner gets their choice of the three prizes. Second place winner gets their choice of the remaining two prizes. Third place gets whatever is left.
So, what are you waiting for? Sign up now!
