BLOGOVERSARY WINNER - RACHELLE!
That's right, folks. This humble little horror arena turned four on August 15th. Where does the time go? I thought I would mark the occasion by announcing Gothic September! This year, I'm doing all Edgar Allan Poe. Specifically, there will be read-a-longs of his short stories, Ligeia, The Cask of Amontillado and The Fall of the House of Usher. I will also share some of his poetry and other tidbits throughout the month. I'm hoping I will get some people willing to guest post too. You will find the read-a-long discussion schedule after I tell you about the giveaway...
Why, yes...a giveaway! My sister site, True Book Addict also celebrated a blogoversary in August. As of August 5th, True Book Addict has been online for SIX YEARS! Wow! So, this will be a dual giveaway between both blogs. Here's how it will work. If you comment here on this post (either telling me you'll be joining in for Gothic September and/or the read-a-longs, or just to tell me how much you love Poe) and on this post at True Book Addict, you will get two entries into the giveaway.
What's the prize? You will have the chance to win a $10 digital Amazon gift card OR $10 worth of books from the Bargain Bin at Better World Books (these are gently used books and let me tell you...I love the site. You can get 3 books for $10 from the bargain bin! I order from them all the time and purchases benefit literary causes around the world. Check them out!).
To enter, as I mentioned above, comment on this post AND on this post at True Book Addict and then fill out the form below with the name you used to comment. You only have to fill out the form once so if you fill it out here, don't fill it out again at True Book Addict. This giveaway will end on September 10, 2015 at 11:59pm CST. Open internationally.
Thanks for entering, in advance for joining me for Gothic September (if you plan to) and for being a loyal follower/reader of this blog.
The read-a-long discussion schedule is as follows. I will put the post up for the full week to enable plenty of time for people to stop by and discuss. I'll also post the schedule in the sidebar.
