FrightFall Readathon - Let's Do This!

It's time! And once again, the readathon is part of Something Wicked Fall at Castle Macabre. We are doing a read-along of The Blood Countess by Andrei Codrescu (we're not that far in, if you want to join us). Not sure at this point about horror movie watch-alongs. I tried to host one this past weekend (Bram Stoker's Dracula), but no one could make it. I'll be in Salem, Massachusetts October 11 - 16 so I'm not going to have a ton of time this month. We'll have to play it by ear. If we do have one, we will chat in our new Discord server (see below).

Remember, the one main "rule" of FrightFall 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 did receive a prize donation from a regular author contributor (thank you very much to him!). I will be offering my usual couple of prizes (see below to enter the charity donation prize). Plus, this year, I'll be giving away two horror novels. I will post the prize page by the end of the first week. 

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 our Facebook group, Facebook Page, our Goodreads group, and our Instagram. If you have any questions about updates, etc., feel free to ask. I will post a mid-event check in post mid-month so be sure to stop by and leave progress, or a link, in the comments.

Hashtag across all social media is #FrightFall Feel free to also use #Readathon and #SomethingWickedFall

The linky below is the same one as the sign up linky. If you do a starting line/goal post, just add your link again, but be sure to put "goal post" beside your name, i.e. Michelle/True Book Addict (goal post). Note: If you're just signing up, you can do it here on this post. It's the same linky.

I have created a Discord server for Seasons of Reading...sort of an experiment away from Slack, which I feel is too business-y for our purposes. You can pop in and chat during our events at any time, or even outside of events. We will also chat there during our horror movie watch-alongs (as mentioned above). We will not be doing live chats, just typing in the text channels. I will create a FrightFall channel as well. Here's the invite link:

Win a $15 donation to a social justice charity of your choice!

I will make a $15 donation to the winner's choice of a social justice organization, such as the ACLU, Boys and Girls Club, Human Rights Campaign, GLAAD, Amnesty International, It Gets Better, The Trevor Project, Planned Parenthood, or another social justice organization of your choice (food banks, homeless shelters, animal rights/rescue/shelters would also apply), perhaps your local chapter or a local organization. This giveaway is open internationally. Note: I will not donate to any organization that does not believe all are equal, regardless of gender, race or sexual orientation.
