Horrifically Good Swagggggg!

October 15, 2009

After a long swag silence, I am finally ready to post my newest contest! WOOT!

But first, I want to share some very good Prophecy news; Prophecy of the Sisters was chosen as one of Booklist’s 2009 Top 10 First Novels for Youth! I’m incredibly honored, because the ALA and Booklist magazine does so much to advocate reading for so many people. A huge thank you to the ALA and the reviewers at Booklist for believing in my work. It really means so much to me.

So, by now you probably know how much I love to give stuff away. I do it in real life, too. Shopping for others is one of my very favorite things to do! You are no exception, online peeps, and because my international readers have made Prophecy such a huge success in their respective countries, I’m opening the contest to international entrants! You are all so loyal and wonderful, it hardly seems fair to leave you out of the fun, so just consider it my own personal thank you for spreading the word about Prophecy all over the world. Mwah!

Now you guys all know I give good swag, but this is truly epic swag. In honor of Halloween, it’s horror-themed, so prepare to be scaaaaared. Okay, not really. But the awesomeness includes;

A red rose t-shirt
A lock and key necklace
A set of three pairs of earrings, including my beloved red rose
Halloween candyyyyy!
Gothic fishnet gloves
A black-and-red skinny tie
Black metallic nail polish
A flocked velvet notebook
A candle
Comb-in temporary hair dye in Blood Red (eeek!)
A $25 Hot Topic gift card
A $15 iTunes gift card
A signed Prophecy locker poster
Prophecy locker magnet
Scented rose pin
Limited edition Prophecy candy tin
Double DVD Underworld/Underworld Evolution
Double DVD 28 Days Later/28 Weeks Later

And in honor of the month of horror, three truly creepy books;

Signed hardcover, Prophecy of the Sisters
Hardcover, The Hollow by Jessica Verday
Hardcover, Bad Girls Don’t Die by Katie Alender

Swag1_1009

Swag3_1009

Was I right, or was I right? Epically good swag, yes? I haven’t had a chance to read either Bad Girls Don’t Die or The Hollow, but I’ve heard REALLY good things about them. Which is why I chose them for this Horrifically Epic Swag Bag!

Okay, here’s how it works! You get one entry for each of the following;

+1 Tell me what supernatural phenomena scares you the most

+1 Link to this contest on your blog

+1 Post a bulletin or update linking to the contest on your Facebook or Myspace page (limit one point for this one, people!)

+1 for becoming a Fan of the Prophecy of the Sisters Fan Page on Facebook

+1 for “Suggesting” the Facebook Prophecy Fan Page to your Facebook friends

+1 Tweet the link! (Ditto above about one point limit)

That’s SIX potential entries! And even if some of this stuff isn’t normally your thing, the holidays are right around the corner, and you can always use your winnings to get a jump on your holiday gift-giving list…

Just sayin’!
πŸ˜€

Contest ends Sunday, October 25 at midnight. Winner will be chosen by random number generator, and I’ll do my best to get everything to the winner by Halloween (domestic shipping only. will take a bit longer if we have an international winner).

Oh! And I PROMISE I’m working on the tour post. Uploading pictures, gathering them from the many people who took them, and backtracking enough to remember the 16 days that was a blur a lot of the time isn’t easy, but I WILL get you a tour post WITH pics very, very SOON!
❀

ETA: I can’t BELIEVE I forgot to upload my pics of this swag! Situation remedied!

Also, if we get an international winner who would prefer an Amazon gift certificate over the books (because they’re US editions), I’m happy to substitute the books for a $50 gift certificate (the approximate value of the three hardcovers). If this happens, I’ll have the RNG choose three runners-up and give away the three books separately.

    I think I would be most scared of verifiable ESP. If someone could reliably know what is going to happen before it does happen or if someone could read my mind (and anyone’s mind for that matter), I think I would pee myself. It would definately change the way society works if either of those things could happen. Thanks for the contest!

    The supernatural phenomena
    that scares me out of my head
    is worrying that, in the deepest night,
    ‘Something’ is beneath my bed.

    I keep my covers up to my chin
    and all my body parts tucked in,
    for if I stick out just a toe
    ‘Something’ might reach from below.

    I look before turning out my light
    and I’ve never seen it there,
    But Something only exists at nightβ€”
    and that’s what gives me a scare!

    what scares me most is ghosts.growing up my mother always told me a story of how her sister woke up one night and saw a man sitting at the foot of her bed when she told her mother about it and gave a description of the man they said it sounded just like an uncle who had been dead for many years.now after that i hate to even open my eyes in a darkened room because if i saw someone sitting on my bed i would probably have a heart attack.this is why ghosts scare me 😦

    ghosts—-I had a ghost experience when I was in college –not your average ghost experience–a large group of us were helping with a fashion show at school –some were models, designers and dressers—we left for the show at about 5:oo pm –on our way we noticed a group of about 10 men all dressed in white robes on the roof of the building accross the street—one of us commented why would they be up their in robes–we all looked –and saw them–just as our taxis arrived –we had the fashion show and then a banquet–then we went out celebrating we got home at around 2:00 am. The next morning our house mother told us that around 9:00 pm there had been a fire at the building across the street and that 2 women & 3 children had died. So what did we see hours before–angels? ghosts? what the heck? and why before the tragedy?

    A big CONGRATS on being in the top ten of the ALA/Booklist list!! The paranormal thing that scares me the most are ghosts! Not the kind that look like a sheet with holes for eyes, but the kind you see on the paranormal shows. You know, they make sounds, move things, change temperatures, and/or touch living people! I think not seeing them maybe scarier than seeing them!

    Thanks for the giveaway and congrats again!

    I agree with a few commenters here that the supernatural doesn’t scare me as much as reality. The very real dangerous predators out there, the serial killers, the stalkers, the misogynists who abuse their girlfriends, wives, and random women. Those people and their actions scare me more than the possibility of ghosts or other supernatural phenomena. If I had to pick a supernatural phenomena it would be demons.

    This is a fantastic giveaway and I love the comments/reponses I have read. For me, it is definitely myself and my overactive imagination that I fear the most. I have scared myself silly more than once just by being alone in the house, taking a walk, running through the trails, etc. by giving that imagination free reign. I have learned not to read certain things when I am alone and to keep the phone handy so my mom can talk me out of my ‘spooks’. My daughter has apparently inherited the ‘imagination’ as she has more than once ended up in my bed due to her ‘imaginings’.

    I think it’s got to be ghosts, because usually if they’re still here, they’re angry and they can hurt you while you can’t even see them coming! Plus unlike vampires, zombies and werewolves, you can’t really kill them. Dangerous invisible things out to get you = scary.

      I’ve heard it said that people who can see ghosts can see them because the spirits know they are open to it.

      Which explains why I can’t see them.

      Because I’m not! I don’t even want to know they’re there!

    I think what would scare me the most would be having spirits in my house. I remember watching a movie about a poltergeist or something, and there’s this part where the lady lays down on her bed to go to sleep and, as soon as she puts her head on the pillow, you can hear a bunch of angry whispering, but when she lifts her head up, it’s gone. It’s not that scary but for some reason that part just really creeped me out. Can you imagine that happening to you? I’d never sleep!

    • michellezinkbooks permalink*
      October 17, 2009 8:38 pm

      Ohhhhh! YES! Creepy whispering ranks high on my “freaky” list. In fact, there’s a scene in Prophecy where my mine character hears it in half-sleep, and it still creeps me out!

    The supernatural phenomena that is most disturbing to me is the fact that I have never had a beyond the grave encounter with loved ones that I have lost.

    what scares me the most?
    I would have to say the fear of being posessed. Though I was raised strict Catholic I am not practicing now but when I was like 11 my mother worked nights and one night I watched the exercist. The is a part in the movie that says that the devil or a demon can only posess you if you invite him in. ALso that you can do that by just thinking about him.
    It scared the BeJesus out of me but what happens when you try not to think of something? We all know from that point on its ALL you can think of. I was up for weeks in a vain attempt not to think about anything evil and to this day if I think about somethng like that ( yikes when I saw the posession of emily rose) or see a TV listing for the exercist I go through the whole thing again
    dont think about the devil

    Good question … I think it’s the ghosts, just because there affect on me is mostly mental. I wouldn’t care a zombie or vampire killing me or someone else (of course I would care, but it wouldn’t scare me that much), but a ghost coming after me … oo I would go mad. Absolutely.

    The one supernatural phenomena that frightens me the most is the undead. If I have any kind of nightmare-like dream, it usually involves zombies. I’m not gonna lie, based on horror movie statistics, as the double-minority (I’m black and Korean), big girl with big boobs, I’d be the first to go down. LoL! Unless, they’re the classic, slow moving zombies, then I’d have a chance to escape.

    Either poltergeists or demons (demons who can possess people). Those scare me the most because they can do actual harm to you, while you can do very little (or nothing) to stop them yourself (unless you’re a medium or something). They’re just so powerful and evil.

    Congrats again to Prophecy of the Sisters being chosen as one of Booklist’s 2009 Top 10 First Novels for Youth πŸ™‚

    I don’t know if I ever will finish my book (I have only just begun) but I am so proud of all of you making it! You motivate and inspire me =)

    You are definitely right: this is truly an epic swag!!! Thank you so much!

    I don’t have a blog right now (might start one soon though) and I am neither a Facebook
    member…

    Talking about supernatural phenomena…

    things like having a ‘sensation de dΓ©jΓ -vu’ at certain places or situations, a sixth sense, intuition…don’t scare me…I think they enhance our lifes

    some movies may have scary moments but don’t give me sleepless nights…

    but then there are some things out there that really creep me out:
    I remember watching ‘Fallen’ with Denzel Washington the first time years ago…I was really shocked when the movie ended and needed some quite minutes for myself…if you haven’t seen it: it’s about a demon called Azazel inhibiting bodies of humans…and then it didn’t have a happy end…being possessed…that really scares me

    Phew! Great movie btw…

    And I retweeted your contest here: http://twitter.com/DakotaBlue69/status/4914408518

      That demon possession thing keeps coming up. It must be that feeling of being trapped inside your own body, imprisoned by something truly evil…

      And listen, if *I* can do it, YOU can do it! Just keep writing. Even 500 words a day is a book every six months or so. YOU CAN DO IT! Just keep chipping away at that word count and try not to worry too much about the editing part. You can fix stuff laterrrrr!

      Thanks so much for all your support in Germany! I’m determined to get there eventually…

      Thanks, Jill! Ghosts totally scare me, too. I always say i am NOT one of those people “open” to seeing spirits.

      I’m like, “If you’re there, just don’t tell meeeee!” Lol!

    Is craws supernatural? Probably not, but in supernatural settings, or dark, or even by day, craws really scares me. But some “real” scary supernatural thing… the girl in “the ring”-movies. Geesh, thats scary. Most of my friends didnt find it scary, but I was superscared after seeing it, and covered my TV every night before I went to sleep

      Oh, geez! I forgot to say that Samara from The Ring is one of the ALL TIME FREAKIEST movie characters. How can someone say she’s not SCARY?! I can’t even THINK about her with her hair all covering her face and those jerky movements she makes… *shudder*

    Hi Michelle πŸ™‚
    Congratulations on being in the top ten of the ALA/Booklist list.
    Does that mean more school libraries will order your book?
    I hope so.
    Love & Best Wishes,
    RKCharron

    PS – The supernatural phenomena that spooks me most is when I’m thinking about someone & pick up the phone to call them & they are on the line already, the phone not even ringing!

      I hope so!! We’ve been lucky so far and have a lot of support from librarians, but more is good, too!

      That phone thing is VERY Twilight Zone. You know what happens to me all the time? I’ll be thinking about a particular person and then my phone will ring and it will be them….

      Dun, Dun, DUN!

      Thanks for all your support!

      That happens to me all the time, Jordan. It happens after I read a really spooky book, too. Unwisely, I’m reading one now called The Haunting of Hill House RIGHT BEFORE BED!
      O_o

      • October 22, 2009 3:16 am

        Yeah, something like that happened to me! I was reading this really wierd book and it was giving me some off the wall dreams!! I wish I could remember which one it was though, Ill have to look and see if I can figure it out.

      • michellezinkbooks permalink*
        October 22, 2009 10:13 am

        That happened to me when I was reading The Haunting of Hill House last week. It’s an old book, but it was recommended to me by Cornerstone Books in Salem, MA (of all places!) when I did a signing there, so I thought I’d give it a try. I have another book, We Have Always Lived in the Castle, by the same author. But now I’m too scared to read it!
