Halloween is my favorite time of year. Mostly because it smells really cool. I look forward to meeting some strange and unusual creatures, turning my kids into monsters, and carving the 20 pumpkins from my garden. I also look forward to giving away a freaky book to one of my (international) followers. And that book is WITHER by Lauren DeStephano. The first in the Chemical Garden series. This book was freaky disturbing, morbid and my favorite cover image for 2011. And just in case you've already read this, I will provide a second choice which is Spirited by Leap Books a ghost anthology of which I am one of 13 writers. I can't go a Halloween without giving one of those away. So, easy rules: one entry for any of these: follow my blog, join my facebook page, add SHIFTERS to your goodreads tbr page. Leave your actions and email in the comments section. Then check out the over 400 other giveaways at I am a Reader not a Writer. But most of all - have a happy Halloween, and have a nightmare because you've read something scary.
