#FrightFall #Readathon - Sign up! #SomethingWickedFall

Fall is here! Well, not officially, but only a little over a week to go. September 1st and I'm all like, "It's fall!" So, in just a few weeks...FrightFall! Woot!

We start at 12:00 am central time on October 1st and end at 11:59 pm central time on October 31st. (There is now a handy link to a time zone converter in the sidebar menu.) I hope you're ready to get your scary on! Guidelines for the readathon can be found HERE or you can access in the sidebar menu. Any information you need about the readathon can be found there. Please do be sure to check the guidelines to make sure you're following along correctly. There are specific rules regarding sign up and wrap up, especially in regards to the giveaway.

The one main "rule" of FrightFall is that you must read at least ONE scary book (which can be a thriller, mystery, Gothic novel, or similar for those who are faint of heart). Since we are doing a month long, I hope you will indulge the scary a bit more, but that is entirely up to you. It is all about the reading after all.

Reminder: I have eliminated the wrap-up linky and we are now just using the Google form for wrap-ups (since I require your wrap-up link there anyway). That way you don't have to do two steps at the end of the readathon. The wrap-up Google form will be on the wrap-up post instead of the prize page. I will have a yes/no so you can let me know if you're opting out of winning a prize. (If you want to visit people who participated, you can do so via the sign-up/starting line linky. I will have a link to it on the wrap-up post).

Our social media hashtag is #FrightFall We have our outstanding Facebook group, and don't forget our our Goodreads group and our Instagram. (There are also access tabs in the sidebar menu.)

Two orders of business...
  • 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! Contact me via the contact form in the menu. If you know of an author who might be interested, pass along a message. Thanks!

As of last year, FrightFall is officially a part of Something Wicked Fall, which runs September/October over at my horror blog, Castle Macabre. We are doing a read-along of Stephen King's Doctor Sleep through the end of October. We just started September 1st so there's still time to join in. We are also going to be having two or three movie watch-alongs. I'm thinking The Shining (suggested by one of our members) first, and Midsommar second. We will decide on the third in October. I will be creating a poll on SurveyMonkey soon to decide on dates/times.

Get all the details for what's going on during Something Wicked Fall here.

High Summer #Readathon - Wrap-Up #HSreadathon

Summer is almost over, and I'm actually glad. The heat has killed me this year! I'm SO ready for fall.

I hope everyone enjoyed High Summer and that you were able to get a lot of reading in. Thank you all so much for joining me for another readathon!

Remember, our process has changed for wrap-ups. No more linky for wrap-up posts. Fill out the form at the end of the post and indicate if you want a chance at a prize by selecting yes or no. Also, double check that your name is listed in the sign up/starting line linky at this post so you will be eligible for the giveaway. You have until Friday, September 6 at 11:59 pm CDT to fill out the form. I will email the winners within a few days following the deadline so keep a look out in your email inbox (or spam folder, just in case) for an email from my truebookaddict gmail account. (Prize page is here)

Today kicks off Something Wicked Fall! If you haven't seen my post at Castle Macabre, in the Facebook group, or on Instagram (I still have to post in our Goodreads group), you can read all the details here. The highlights...a read-along of Doctor Sleep, Gothic and horror reading, movie watch-alongs! Of course, all this will go along nicely with FrightFall coming up in October. I'll have sign-ups ready for that soon. In the meantime, check out the button (will add a grab code in the sidebar shortly).

Once again, thank you for joining me and I hope to see you next time.

(If you would like others to visit your wrap-up post, please leave a comment below with the link to your wrap-up, or you can visit participants via the starting line post linky here.)
