Win a Kindle Fire HD or Nook HD during our Halloween Party!

Posted by: Angela Campbell

Ah, October.

For many of us, leaves are changing color and falling to the ground. The air is beginning to cool and turn crisp. Pumpkin patches are springing up, along with corn mazes, haunted houses and fall festivals. And here at the Here Be Magic blog, we're celebrating the magical change of seasons with a month-long celebration, and we're bringing out a big bag of treats to share with our guests.

Throughout the month, we'll be giving away a variety of items, both for our readers and aspiring authors.

Our giveaways will include:

  • A one-month mentorship from author Jeffe Kennedy, to include a three-chapter and synopsis critique, query letter critique and brainstorming session on who to query. Best for work in permutations of erotic and fantasy romance.
  • Win one of five critiques of a first chapter by a Here Be Magic published author (David Bridger, Shawna Thomas, Evey Brett, Seleste Delaney or Nicole Luiken).
  • A promo package that includes free author promotion on Twitter — Shy of shameless self-promo? Let @Jenny_Schwartz and @AngelaCampbel tweet your brilliance. SEVEN super tweets from each to celebrate your and your books' brilliance. Also, Meankitty (owned by author Jody Wallace) will provide an author or reader interview or book review, if desired (bearing in mind, of course, Meankitty's name is accurate.)
  • Author R.L. Naquin will name a nonhuman character in her Monster series after you or the person of your choosing.
  • And our grand prize of either a Kindle Fire HD or Nook HD ($199 value; winner's choice) complete with free ebooks from participating authors and a special "thank you" gift basket full of swag.

We kick things off with a special opportunity for readers in the New York/New Jersey/Connecticut area.

  24. I'm thrilled to visit here! I love fantasy and paranormal romance and already reading through I got a list going! I'd love to read the releases and author interviews! You asked "What kind of topics would you most like to see discussed in future Here Be Magic posts?"

    I do love to read too about what other readers are reading! And too with special themes, like Historical Vamp (or paranormal or etc) and books with that special combo or likewise with readers and this blog posting them. I love to find combos of genres, especially the historicals!

    I'd love to be in the contest!

    Thanks
