The Spooktacular Giveaway Hop Returns!

Do you hear that? Was that a branch creaking? A wolf howling? Wait, was that my shadow, or something else...? It's that time of year again, a time for creepy, spooky, scary, frightful, ghostly, and ghastly! In other words, it's time for the Spooktacular Giveaway Hop!

Over 400 participating blogs are offering a book related giveaway and we are all linked up together so you can easily hop from one giveaway to another.  The hop runs from Wednesday, October 24th through Wednesday, October 31st. 

This year, we're giving away three of our spookiest books. Two winners will win receive copies of Juniper Berry and Guys Read: Thriller, and one lucky winner will receive an advance reader copy of The Fellowship for Alien Detection (hits stores in March 2013). 

The Fellowship for Alien Detection by Kevin Emerson
Picture the town of Juliette, Arizona, a seemingly normal town until all of sudden, BLAM! it disappears. Enter Haley and Dodger: two kids from opposite sides of the country who both have set out to prove that extraterrestrial life really does exist. Can they figure out what happened to Juliette? Can they prove that the people whispering "alien abduction" maybe aren't crazy after all? And, most importantly, can they stop what's happening before it's too late...because they are being hunted themselves, and, at any moment, they might disappear too...

Juniper Berry by M.P. Kozlowsky
A contemporary fairy tale of terror and temptation in the tradition of Roald Dahl and Neil Gaiman. Juniper’s parents, two of the world’s biggest movie stars, have not been right lately. When Juniper catches them sneaking into the cold, dark woods that surround their mansion, she follows them. What she discovers is an underworld both terrifying and enticing, lorded over by Skeksyl, a creature both sinister and seductive, who can sell you the world’s secrets in a simple red balloon. Skeksyl presents Juniper with a choice: take what he offers, or lose her family for good. It will be up to Juniper to confront her own fears in order to the save the ones who couldn’t.

Guys Read: Thriller edited by Jon Scieszka
