12 Days of Creepfest

Ghosts, ghouls and goblins aren’t just for Halloween anymore.

For those of you who like a little darkness in your holiday celebration, get ready for the 12 Days of Creepfest!

From December 13 to 24, you can visit a community of author blogs who pen tales that tempt and terrify!

Whether you have a penchant for horror, dark fantasy, dark YA or a creepy combination of the above, you will discover how awesome all the different facets of the dark lit genre can be!


Each blog host is offering a different prize. From free books, ebooks, trinkets and other tokens, you can get yourself some sweet swag just in time for the holidays.


I’ve decided to offer up a starring role in one of my short stories!

The winner of my Creepfest Contest will win the chance to completely customize a character who will appear in an upcoming story I write.

I will send you a full questionnaire (believe me, I’ve got lots!) for you to fill out with all the characteristics, quirks and craziness you desire!

I love a challenge, and I think this is a fun way for me to stretch my writing muscles, while also immortalizing your very own creation in one of my dark & creepy tales.



So, do you want to be a literary superstar (and possibly be offed in some dreadfully delightful way)? Sign up below to take part in my Creepfest Contest! Or post in the comments section that you want to be entered!

You can earn bonus entries by following me on Twitter, on Facebook and tweeting about my contest (don’t forget to put @maryrajotte in your tweet!). Use the Rafflecopter form below or comment and let me know which tasks you completed.

If you already follow me on these sites, just click the “I did this!” button in the Rafflecopter form or comment below for your free entries.

PLUS! I am hosting another contest over on BloodyBookish.com to win a set of 3 chapbooks by one of my favorite authors, Ian Rogers. Go, enter THAT contest (but hurry! That contest ends Dec. 19. Come on – who wouldn’t want to win these amazing chapbooks!), then come back here and let me know you did so for another entry into my contest.

That’s 5 ways to enter, plus a chance to win Temporary Monsters, The Ash Angels and Black Eyed Kids chapbooks from Ian Rogers, donated by Burning Effigy.

    Finally made it here for Creepfest. This prize sounds spooktacular. *grins* Wish I had eye teeth that were pointy to make the web grin even better. *grins again*

    I still have my last contest running to win a signed copy of my short, A Taste of Murder, in the UK Mag, Twisted Tongue. Creep on by, lurk awhile, if you haven’t already. I am on vacation at the folks in WI. Just flew in yesterday. A little frazzled and tired, so if you have been, I apologize. 🙂

    Happy Creeping,
