Helluva Halloween 2010 + Schedule of Awesome-filled Awesome!

Zombies may have gotten my brains earlier, but that's not going to stop me from bringing you the rockingest, hauntingest, most Halloweenirific event I can.
[damn right]

I've got a world of WIN ready for ya, and lots of ways you can participate, so grab your broomsticks and come along for the midnight ride...

A quick explanation of what you'll find here on the Schedule of Awesome-filled Awesome: a regularly (she says now) updated list of the goings on in Helluva Halloween, broken into categories -- different levels of awesome, if you will.  As each Helluva Halloween item is posted, it will be linked up under it's appropriate heading.  Check back often for the latest editions, because this list is going to grow and grow all month long as the awesome fills to bursting.

Awesome #1: Buttons!
This first awesome is different from the rest in that it's finished; no other goodies are going to be listed under this heading; these are just for you to grab the Helluva Halloween buttons.  This year you get your choice of blog button to show your participation in, or approval of, Helluva Halloween.  Take your pick, kiddies, or take them both, I don't mind:

Awesome #2: Games and Goodies!
I'm going to have a number of games and interactive bits for you to participate in during the month, so pay attention to this spot with in the next couple of days as the various goodies are announced!

Awesome #3: Interviews!
Pretty self-explanatory, that.  There are going to be loads of fun and irreverant interviews from some pretty awesome authors, so keep your eyes ... peeled?  pealed?  [either way, it just seems so disturbing an expression...].  Anyway, what I'm saying is watch this spot for the latest updates as each author's interview is revealed.


Awesome #4: Guest Postiness!
I've got lots of fun posts planned for you from both authors and other bloggers, and here's the spot to find them.  Want to see your own name here?  It's never too late*.  Email me at mbradenwf @ gmail DOT com with your questions and/or post to join the fun!
But even if you aren't a featured guest this month, that doesn't mean you can't get involved in Helluva Halloween.  There will be a links page, too, for you to link up your book/movie/music/costume/candy reviews, and of course the games and challenges for you to play in.

*This is a lie.  At a certain point it will be too late, or really, really early for next year's Helluva Halloween...
