Welcome to A Fiction Frolic for All Hallow's Read!

For the first 3 weeks of October, we are doing a promotional event to support the new holiday tradition Neil Gaiman created a few years ago to promote giving a book or scary story away for Halloween. You can read more about All Hallow's Read here. 

Our Authors are donating copies of their own books to All Hallow's Read, as well as offering up signed paperbacks as prizes for those participating. There will also be a cash prize, a swag grab bag and the chance for the winner to gift a book to a friend.

We will be donating books to Books for America, an awesome charity who is officially sponsoring our event and excited to be involved with All Hallow's Read. In 2011, Books for America donated more than $800,000 worth of books and materials to DC area schools, shelters and dozens of other educational programs and organizations.

During the event, each of our participating authors will be blogging about the joy of reading and what books have meant to them. Keep an eye on this site for daily posts throughout the first three weeks of October.

Also, keep watching the blog for updates and other fun events between now and October.  Looking forward to reading with you!
