Dark Friday Deals

The digital copy of EVE HALLOWS AND THE BOOK OF SHRIEKS is available for free at Amazon until Sunday, November 25.


About the Book:


For fourteen-year-old Eve Hallows, life can be summed up in one word—horrible. She has the most horrible friends. She lives in a horrible old castle. Even her family is a bunch of horrible monsters.

However, in the monster-inhabited world of Gravesville—a world where messages are sent through Ouija boards, jack-o’-lanterns get facials to suit their moods, and the worst thing Eve has to deal with are those annoying zombie tourists who overrun her favorite graveyard during the Halloween season—horrible means wonderful. And everything for Eve is perfectly horrible.

But her life is about to go head over heels when a mysterious group known as The Source starts terrorizing Gravesville. Now she must move to the human world—where everything is opposite ... and for Eve, that's absolutely adorable!

Horrible Halloween Giveaways

I love giveaways.  I love Halloween.  Put them together and what do you get?

Crusty zombie underwear!

Of course not. I'm talking about Eve Hallows spooktacular giveaways, of which there are two currently running.

First up, over at Goodreads, you can enter for a chance to win one of three signed copies of EVE HALLOWS AND THE BOOK OF SHADOWS.  Click here to enter. (Or at least start the entrance process. I believe there are more clicks to be clicked once you get there.)  Giveaway ends October 15. 

But the Goodreads one's meh in comparison to the one hosted over at Word Spelunking.
Check this prize package out:

1 autographed copy of EVE HALLOWS AND THE BOOK OF SHRIEKS
1 autographed copy of EVE HALLOWS AND THE BOOK OF SHADOWS
1 $15 iTunes gift card
Some Eve Hallows swag--bookmarks and stickers
A few small bags of Halloween candy
All of this will be placed inside a talking potions chest, which doubles as a nice Halloween decoration.
(Total prize package is worth about $70)


Also, second and third place winners will receive an ebook copy of EVE HALLOWS AND THE BOOK OF SHADOWS.  

This giveaway runs until October 20.


What are you still doing here!
