Spring into Horror #Readathon - Time for a scary spring kickoff! #SpringHorror

Here we and running!

Remember, the one main "rule" of Spring into Horror is that you must read ONE scary book (which can be a thriller, mystery, Gothic novel, or similar for those who are faint of heart). The rest of the month? Keep reading scary if you want, or read whichever genre you choose.

I have some nice scary prizes lined up from Sinister Grin Press and Erin Al-Mehairi, and there may be more to come. Of course, I'll be offering a couple of prizes myself. Also, Sinister Grin Press is making possible free eBook ARCs of Jason Parent's new horror novel, They Feed for participants to read during the readathon. I posted about it in our Facebook group, but if you're not on Facebook, contact me via the contact tab in the menu and I'll get your email address to Erin so she can send you the book. Here's the cover and the synopsis:

The night uncovers all we wish not to see.

A troubled man enters a dusky park before sunset. A young woman follows, hidden in shadow. Both have returned to the park to take back something the past has stolen from them, to make right six long years of suffering, and to find justice or perhaps redemption—or maybe they'll
settle for some old-fashioned revenge.

But something evil is alive and awake in those woods, creatures that care nothing for human motivations. They’re driven by their own insatiable need: a ravenous, bottomless hunger.

The campgrounds are full tonight, and the creatures are starving. Before the night is over, they will feed.

An unrelenting tale of terror from Jason Parent, acclaimed author of
People of the Sun and What Hides Within.

Also, on the prize of my favorite historical fiction authors, Robert Stephen Parry, is offering a choice of one of his books in print and it's international!

I'll have the official prize page posted hopefully by midweek in the coming week. Stay tuned!

Don't forget that you can participate even if you don't have a blog. Just link up with your Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram (and just post your updates from whichever venue you choose) AND don't forget to interact in our Facebook group! If you have any questions about updates, etc., feel free to ask. I will be posting weekly check-ins on Saturdays so be sure to stop by and leave progress, or a link, in the comments of those posts.
