Hello, and welcome to Coffin Hop 2013! Thanks to Axel Howerton and Julie Jansen, for starting and once again hosting and setting up this event. From now until October 31st, look for posts on a variety of horror-themed subjects, including a "Night of the Living Dead" cemetery tour (with photos), an in depth look at an underrated horror movie, and even a post about the World Series. (Okay, that last one isn't horror-themed, but it is topical, considering the time of year.)
Like last year, I'll be running some contests. First off, any person who comments on a post starting with this one until the end of October 31st will be entered into a random drawing, and the prize is a free copy of one of my ebooks ("Dead Reckoning" or "Kaishaku"), winner's choice. Additionally, two of the hop's posts will be a horror author trivia quiz, and then a horror movie quiz, with ten questions for each. The first person to answer all ten questions for each quiz correctly wins, again a free copy of one of my ebooks. If nobody gets all ten by the end of the Coffin Hop, the winner will be the person who gets the most correct answers. If say, two people get eight correct answers, then I'll randomly pick a winner from these. Since I only have two ebooks available, that's the most you can win total. So in the event that one person wins both trivia quizzes, they won't be part of the overall randomly picked winner from all commenters. So hope everyone has fun, and good luck. And please put the "hop" in this Coffin Hop and visit the other participating blogs. Happy Halloween, THE holiday for all of us horror fans!
