Coffin Hop 2013

So here we are again, time for a new Coffin Hop! For those who haven't been here before, this is an amazing even with more than 70 blogs celebrating the spookiest season. On previous years I've gone with real personal ghost stories and a series of themed posts. This year, however, I'm going to take a minimalist approach.

On Halloween day, Burial Day Books will release the GOTHIC BLUE BOOK III: The Graveyard Edition. My story A DIARY OF MADNESS is included, among AUNTIE GRAVE by best-seller author Jessica McHugh, SINS OF OUR MOTHER by Edward J. McFadden, and many more awesome authors.

On top of this radtacular release, the Coffin Hop will also be releasing their own anthology. DEATH BY DRIVE-IN is a collection with 21 of the best and brightest coffin hopers tapping on their scariest B-movie memories. And what's even better: All proceeds will go to Litworld.com to support literature around the globe.

As you see I have plenty of reason to be happy this All Hallows Eve, besides the candy and horror flicks. So, the deal is this: I'll write three posts for the hop, each one will prompt you to comment on the specific theme of the day. One visitors will be selected randomly and announced on the following post. The prizes are a copy of my novel PERPETUAL NIGHT, a copy of the Coffin Hop's anthology, and a surprise book that I'll announce later on (One book for each post/winner).

So boys and girls, drop by as frequently as you can during the next week, enjoy, comment, and maybe win a book!!

Now, remember there are several contests running through out the week, so you might want to visit the rest of the participating blogs. I assure you, you will not leave with empty hands.

Let the fun begin!!

COFFIN HOP? That is very clever

Chris Fries said...

Cool! Sounds like fun! I'll be sure to check 'em out. The last time I was involved in a coffin hop was because I ate some habanero-laced chilli and it went down the wrong way. I was coffin' and hoppin' for quite a while...

This is a great idea and perfect for the week before Halloween. Normally, I'd be happy to do it, but I'm doing my cover reveal tomorrow, and it's game that goes for a week so I don't want to put up too many posts and bury it. (Chris's comment was funny!)
Please stop by my blog tomorrow for the reveal game! :-)

We are clever people... If only by association ;-)

Georgina Morales said...

You made me snort my coffee! I've had that kind of coffin' hop, though, and there's nothing funny about those. :)

Georgina Morales said...

Well, all you really need is one single post and the hop would bring more attention to your cover reveal :)

I'll be sure to stop by tomorrow. I love covers, reveals, and games!!

Great to discover a new author. Hope I'll win, because I read-read-read everything I can get my hands on!

Cheers and happy hopping, coffin hop neighbor!
p.s. can't get wordpress to work for posting here.

Georgina Morales said...
