A Spooktacular Giveaway

POSTED ON October 8, 2016 BY Austine IN Giveaway


Hello, hello everyone! If you’ve followed me for any length of time you probably know that I LOVE giveaways (both entering and hosting). What’s better than free books, right?

And I love Halloween. Best holiday BY FAR (fight me on it, I dare you 😉 ).

So obviously I need to host a spooky giveaway because why the hell not? (I totally didn’t PLAN to do this until about an hour ago but hey, it’s all good).

But of course you need details:

There are 2 FORMS to enter through (i.e. 2 Rafflecopters). One is for U.S. residents ONLY and the other for international entrants. I can’t afford to ship the big prize outside the U.S. but didn’t want to exclude y’all so you have a different prize.

For the box prize, I picked items that are either spooky or supernatural, as that’s what comes to mind when I think about Halloween. I also included some items that might help you with your literary-esque costume!



Enter the giveaway using the appropriate Rafflecopter form below. If you are in the U.S. you are not eligible for the international prize.

The giveaway will run from October 8th – October 22nd @ 11:59pm EST

All NovelKnight giveaway policies apply (see sidebar)

This past September I had the opportunity to read an absolutely fabulous debut read titled STALKING JACK THE RIPPER by Kerri Maniscalco (you might have heard of it).


If at least ONE Rafflecopter reaches 2,500 entries, I will be adding an ARC of Stalking Jack the Ripper to the box. Doesn’t matter which form gets it (US or INTL). So I encourage you all to share this giveaway. There are a couple options for daily entries in each form and plenty of other ways to enter.

And if you don’t think it’s worth it, read my raving review!

    I love to read romantic suspense books,similar books to Cynthia Eden’s romantic suspense books 🙂
    Thank you for the amazing international giveaway! 🙂

    I read Frankenstein last year, it was fairly creepy at times, though it always surprised me in how much more thoughtful and emotional it was than any of the movie or TV adaptations have led me to believe.

    • Frankenstein is probably one of my favorite classic reads. The book is definitely a lot more in-depth than the movies/shows but I’ve always found each interpretation interesting in how it takes the idea of Dr. Frankenstein and the Monster and makes it a little different.

  3. Oh wow, I love this Haloween design 😀
    It’s so cool!

    Scary book? Hmm… well, I recently read The Call by Peadar O’ Guilin (sorry if I spelled his name wrong ‘^^), and it was *such* a dark and creepy read.
    I don’t have a spooky book on the ready (I’m not into scary reads, I’m afraid), but I will also add Nevernight by Jay Kristoff as a must read October book.

    • Thanks! ^_^

      Can’t say I’m much into “scary” books but there are definitely some haunting tales out there. Read AND THE TREES CREPT IN back in September (first real go with horror) and it was definitely creepy in the suspense sense. And Nevernight is on point. Excellent choice! 🙂

  4. Thanks for the giveaway! Happy October! My favorite reads in October are any type of horror or thriller books, but especially Dracula or anything by Shirley Jackson!!

  5. I don’t have a favorite spooky book to read during October, but I do have a favorite author: Edgar Allan Poe, the master of the macabre ♥ His stories are perfect for Halloween!! =D However, I recently read Harmony House, by Nic Sheff, and it scared the hell out of me :O I think it’d be a great halloweeny book! Thank you for the giveaway, Austine!
