Thanks for bearing with me on the hiatus of High Summer due to my move. I'll be honest. The move was hell...and we're still unpacking and arranging. I have thousands of books to shelve (which is probably the funnest part. lol). Well, one good thing which came from my move and the High Summer hiatus...a two month long FrightFall! Yes!
We start at 12:00 am eastern time on September 1st and end at 11:59 pm eastern time on October 31st. (There is 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 we now have a Facebook Page, 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!
Something Wicked Fall, which runs September/October over at my horror blog, Castle Macabre. We are doing a read-along of Wilkie Collins' The Woman in White through the end of October. We start 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 mulling over some titles. Any suggestions? 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.
