2011 YA Spooktacular Spread the Word Contest!!

So there's this HUGE event happening on October 24. You may have heard it.

*Contest is at the end, I promise!

Can I just tell you HOW AWESOME all this is going to be? Because it's going to be wicked awesome. So awesome that I'm hosting the event with Nikki at Wicked Awesome Books.

Since the event starts on Monday, we're here to give you a full run-down of what's going on! Some things you should know about the Spooktacular...there are THREE stories. Each story is Choose-Your-Own-Adventure, where you can pick which direction the story goes. It's going to be a week full of tricks, treats, spooky adventure and lots of PRIZES.

There are a lot of stops along the way with some giveaway TRICKS or TREATS--and there's at least one international giveaway at every story. Although, the prize packs aren't international (unless you have a local address we can send to), there will be an international Grand Prize Pack posted alongside the US/Canada one on Halloween Day.

What a list, right? Right. You can check out a complete list of participating bloggers AND all the Story One, Story Two, Story Three & Grand Prize Packs by visiting Frenzy of Noise. I'll try to have pictures of the prize packs up soon as well.

I just prepped my post and I can't WAIT! It's going to be loads of fun. And I love the creative idea you guys came up with. It's BRILLIANT. I can't believe it's SO huge though! I would have thought like one story, not THREE! But that's great that it is, but you've got to be tired of all the work, cause I KNOW it's got to be a lot of work. Anyway, I tweeted:
