In Celebration of the Spooks Short Story Contest

 So, I love Halloween. It's my favorite holiday in the whole wide world. I love the candy, the creepy feeling at night, the pure excitement. But most of all, I love the stories and legends about Halloween. For instance, in fifth grade, we had to give a speech. Mine was on the legend of the Jack o' Lantern. Yep. That's how fangirly I am.

 Anyways, I decided that it would be awesome to hold a short story contest based on the theme of ghosts or murders, or, basically, anything that goes bump in the night.

 I'll be taking entries from tonight to October 11th. The winner will receive a SIGNED ARC of  Frost, by Marianna Baer. It is international!

   -The story must be at least 200 words.
   -The story MUST have something creepy in it.
   -This is international!
   -The stories may be submitted until midnight on October 31st. I'll take a week to read and judje them all, and then announce the winner on the 28th.
   -The stories MUST BE emailed to me at
   -PLEASE leave a comment telling me if you will be entering.
 So that's it! I hope to hear from a lot of you!

 UPDATE: I HAVE EXTENDED THE DEADLINE due to not enough entries. It now runs till the THIRTY-FIRST of October, also known as HALLOWEEN. Tell your friends! What I have gotten so far looks fantastic, though- keep it coming guys!



I'll be entering! Ahhh I love creative writing competitions, especially ghost ones so I'll be sure to e-mail it soon! :D
