Giveaway: Where Spirits Dwell

a giveaway of ghostly delights

I know, I know...
Ghost stories are traditionally more of a Halloween thing, aren't they?  But as I was working on my year-end cleaning, I found that a small stack of gothic, ghostly books needed to find a new home.  And frankly, I have always found the cold chills of January and February, when the wind whips through winter air and the evenings are black and long, to be much more conducive to the spooky and the supernatural than the relatively balmy air of October.  So can I intrigue you with some mysterious tomes that just may go bump in the night?

I'll be drawing two names from a hat.  There will be two winners - the first person will choose two books for his or herself, and then the two remaining books will go to the next person.

The Books
Black Spring by Alison Croggon
Possessed by Kate Cann
The Small Hand / Dolly by Susan Hill
100 Ghosts: A Gallery of Harmless Haunts by Doogie Horner

So how can you enter the drawing and maximize your chances of winning?  I'm so glad you asked.

There are a variety of ways to enter, and you can get multiple entries for yourself, too!

1. Leave a comment in this entry, but make sure I have a way to contact you!  (If you leave an email address, please use one that you check regularly.  If you're on LJ and don't leave an email, I'll just contact you through the LJ Messaging system.)

2. Go back to my old reviews and comment on them.  Each comment (one per entry) will get you another entry in the drawings.

3. Comment on future reviews as they come out - I update Tuesday, Thursday and at least once on the weekends.

4. Mention this contest in your blog and leave a comment somewhere on [info]fashion_piranha  with a link so I know that you did.

5. Use that handy 'repost' button below to share this page on your livejournal - it takes less than a second and bam! You've got another entry.

7. Add a link to your blog roll / links page / whatever you call it to Fashionista Piranha!

8. If you're on Livejournal, get another entry by friending [info]fashion_piranha If you're already my friend, then you'll automatically get the entry when you comment here so don't worry about un-friending and then re-friending the journal.  :-p
