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 [on the hosting blog – see link at the end of this post]. 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
