Elise had this incredible idea! An ALL HALLOW'S EVE BLOG CARNIVAL!!!!!!! Though she may not be able to do much cause of some personal issues, I have volunteered to take most of the weight off her shoulders and do the event for Elise!!!!
See, I've always wanted to host on of these types of features, something to do with a holiday that contains awesome fun filled games and contests!
The Carnival will go on from October 24th to October 31st, Halloween. What the general idea of the carnival is to have multiple blogs sign up to host little posts that maybe games, contests, giveaways....a clue to a bigger giveaway...etc.
There will games for blog readers like name that book...where you are given a small part of a cover... of multiple books and you must identify the book. The contests will include stuff like short stories, fun questions, and cover retakes that will be judged by guest authors. Almost all games and contests will have a swag prize sponsored by the BD team.
There will be a bigger giveaway at the end of the carnival which readers must collect clues or letters to find the bigger meaning and be entered into. We will also feature some great authors that have novels which will in some form, link to Halloween. We already have some great prizes from us and authors who have graciously donated items for prizes and giveaways:
4 Signed Bookmarks of Slide by Jill Hathaway
6 Signed Bookmarks, 3 Signed Small Posters, 1 Signed Large Poster of Monarch by Michelle Davidson Argyle
5 Signed Bookmarks of Forbidden by Megan Curd
Some Signed Swag from my Personal Collection
.....And lots more coming through the mail from some other authors that will be posted soon.
But we still need more for contests and games! :(
We are still lacking in the ideas for some general posts themselves, so if you have any ideas or questions, please do not hesitate to send them here:
