I'm not going to lie, it's going to take me a few days (read: a week or so) to tally up everything and check links, so I will announce the winners as soon as I can.
This is the first year in my quarter-century of existence that I have not been able to dress up and take someone trick-or-treating, which makes me sad, but when I got home from work (where I did wear a spider ring and a skeleton t-shirt with a flashing heart -- had to get some sort of costuming in there), I found out that I won the Spooktober Awesomeness over at Ellz Readz. I chose The Historian and Blood Promise (I get a treat bag, too!)
THANKS, ELIE!!!!!!!!!!!!! (<--- that's lucky 13...). Also, I won another Halloweeny book the other day. I randomly entered a comment contest through Fresh Fiction by commenting on a guest post by author Amanda Grange, and I won her book My Darcy, Vampyre -- and I received it the very next day!
THANKS AMANDA, FRESH FICTION, FEDEX AND JANE AUSTEN!!!!
Lastly, I won the book Cranioklepty: Grave Robbing and the Search for Genius, from the website's contest. They asked the question: "If you could steal a skull, any skull, whose would you choose, and why?"
My smart-ass answer:
Is it completely sacrilegious/horrible to say Jesus? Because, I mean, come on. That would be one powerful skull.
If not Jesus, probably Cleopatra. I am intrigued by her. And what with facial reconstruction tech, it would be interesting to see if she was worth the hype.
*Of the trick-or-treat variety, not the Treaty of __________ variety. If you didn't know this, you're disqualified, and probably a mouth-breather.
