If we get lots of entries I’ll give away more than one copy, so please help me spread the word.

Aphanasian Stories isn’t creepy… not really, but it IS a fantastic collection that deserves a bigger audience than it’s had to date and I am offering a copy as a freebie so… there’s that πŸ˜‰

ETA: Several days after I scheduled this I spontaneously decided to put Aphanasian Stories on sale at Smashwords (75% off using coupon code VG96R – Click here) Soooooo I’ll also give the winner(s) of the Rafflecopter draw a copy of White Noise.

Last year Milo James Fowler hosted an event where he gave away stories every Friday in October. This year he’s invited some of his friends to come play too. I am pleased to announce that I am one of those participants πŸ™‚ Who else is playing along this year? Check it out, in addition to myself and Milo the following people are all also giving away goodies each Friday:

Aaron Polson, Stoney M. Setzer, Simon Kewin, Anthony J. Rapino, Bob Eccles, Cate Gardner, Christine Rains, Deborah Walker, Ellie Garratt, Erin Cole, James Garcia Jr., Jeff Chapman, Lyndon Perry, Michelle Ann King and Roland Yeomans.

What am I giving away? Two things.

The first thing I’m giving away is copies of Niteblade πŸ™‚ You can download a free copy of our Issue #23: Blodeuwedd. Simply choose which format you’d like and follow the link.

But that’s not all πŸ™‚

I’m also hosting a raffle to give away a grab bag full of awesome. This bag is guaranteed to have a proof copy of my book Aphanasian Stories and a copy of Niteblade’s special poetry issue:

There will also be all sorts of other goodies. There may be books, pens, postcards, download codes for other books, candy, handicrafts, bookmarks… you just never know what I’m going to toss in there. I promise though, that when you open up this grab bag it will be the same sort of adventure as when you would dump out your candy bag after trick or treating πŸ™‚

I’m also going to give away a copy of the latest issue of Niteblade Magazine. If we have lots of entries I will give away more than one copy… let’s say one copy for every ten people who enter. So the more people who enter the more issues I’ll give away. And you can enter to win in several different ways (plus, you can earn one entry every day just by tweeting about the giveaway). Good luck!

So Many Things!

Lanterns and MoonlightI have so many things to talk about today. Some of them probably deserve a blog post of their own but I don’t want the people who subscribe to my blog (and if you don’t, you should, she says pointing to the little subscriber box to the right) to be totally inundated with stuff so ‘all the things’ are going to have to share one blog post. I’m sure they’ll manage it somehow.

Firstly, I have a new poem out today. My poem, Mary-Lee, was published this morning at Every Day Poets. It’s a short piece with a horror-y flavour which may be why EDP is using it to kick off October.

I also have news on the Fae front (as you may have guessed from the fairy picture dominating this blog post). We’ve been open to submissions for a month now, so it seemed a good time to give a quick update from the slush pile. My blog entry about what I’m seeing so far and what I’d like to see more of is up over at World Weaver Press’s blog –> Update from the Slush Pile: Fae Anthology. The short version is that I’m mostly looking for things I haven’t seen before, but really if you’re thinking about submitting to Fae pop over and read the whole blog post. It’s short and I think you’ll find it very helpful in making it onto my short list.

But wait! There’s more!CreepyFreebies - badge

This month I will be participating in Milo James Fowler‘s ‘Creepy Freebies’ event. Every Friday in October Milo and some of his friends will be giving away fun and freaky freebies. I’m not particularly sure how ‘creepy’ my freebies are, but they are free and they are awesome (even if I do say so myself LoL). This Friday it will be Milo, Erin Cole, Stoney M. Setzer and myself who will be giving away freebies.

I don’t want to totally give away what I’m giving away (heh!) but I will say that I’m hosting two giveaways. One is on behalf of Niteblade and the other is from me personally. I think they are both pretty awesome, so pop by again on Friday to learn all about them and pick up your freebies.
