Winners and A Spooky Contest
Congratulations to the winners of the zoo mysteries. Cindy D. from Mesa, AZ will received Betty Webb's The Koala of Death. Ann Littlewood's Did Not Survive will go to Holly G. from Pine Hill, NJ. I'll put the books in the mail tomorrow.
The books won't arrive in time for Halloween, but it's still appropriate to offer two books with spooky themes this week. I have an autographed ARC of Juliet Blackwell's A Cast-Off Coven to give away. Lily Ivory is the witch who runs a vintage-clothing store, Aunt Cora's Closet. When students at the San Francisco School of Fine Arts suspect the school is haunted, Lily searches for paranormal activity in exchange for a trunkful of clothes in a storage closet. But, Lily discovers a body, and spirits that are much worse than the students feared.
Or, you could enter to win Laura Child's Tragic Magic. Carmela Bertrand, owner of a scrapbooking shop, and her best friend, Ava, who owns Juju Voodoo, love their job of converting a New Orleans mansion into a haunted house in time for an upcoming horror convention. At least they love it untle the owner's body comes crashing through a tower window. Now, Carmela and Ava need to find a killer.
Which haunting book would you like to win, A Cast-Off Coven or Tragic Magic? You can enter to win both but I need separate entries. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your subject line should read either "Win A Cast-Off Coven" or "Win Tragic Magic." Your message should include your mailing address. Entrants only in the U.S., please.
The contest will end Thursday, Nov. 4th at 6 p.m. PT. The winners will be selected by random number generator. I'll notify the winners and mail the books the next day. Good luck!
