It's here! The official sign up for the FrightFall Read-a-Thon! A week long fest of scary reading (well, at least one scary book anyway). All you have to do to participate is read at least one horror/scary book. For the faint-hearted among you, it can be a spooky mystery, a scary thriller, or something classically gothic. This time I'm allowing children's books for those of you who have kids...with one condition...five picture books equal one novel. Sound fair? Middle grade novels can count as one book. I will not be hosting any mini-challenges, as we learned from my last two read-a-thons, focusing on the reading rocks. However, if anyone else would like to host a mini-challenge, you are more than welcome. Of course, there will be a big giveaway at the end. And we will have a few scheduled Twitter chats again (and perhaps some more reading sprints). Our twitter hashtag is #FrightFall.
Sign up in the linky below. You do not have to do a post now, unless you want to help spread the word (hint, hint...) If you don't have a blog, use Facebook, Twitter or Goodreads. Having a blog is not required. Be sure to grab the button at the top of this post. (Don't forget that this is just the sign-up linky. There will be starting line sign-in and wrap-up linkies during the read-a-thon and doing both is required to be eligible for the giveaway).
I am looking for prize donations so if anyone would like to contribute, let me know. Authors, this is a great way to promote your book! Email me--truebookaddictATgmailDOTcom
During the entire month of October, I'm hosting Season of the Witch at Castle Macabre. My reading focus in the scariest month of the year will be witches and I'll be inviting others to join me. There will also be at least one giveaway and hopefully some guest posts. Wanna write a scary post? Let me know. It does NOT have to be witch related, but if it is, that's great too! So witchy reading at Castle Macabre will fit right in with this read-a-thon!

Just a friendly reminder about the Sit Down and Write Write-a-Thon starting Monday at 12:01am CST. Remember, it's not just for writers of novels or stories...it's for bloggers too, so if you have some reviews or general blogging to catch up on, why not join us? For details and sign-up, visit The Story Inside Me (my writing blog) HERE.
