Are you carving this weekend? Hollows contest!

Tim’s and Kim’s pumpkins

If you saw my post Thursday, then you know I’m having another Halloween-themed contest this year, and it’s both just starting, and almost ending! But there’s still time.

This year, in return for your pictures of your carved pumpkins, (with your favorite Hollows book,) you are entered in my give away of fifteen signed books: 5 HOLLOWS INSIDERS, and 10 hard cover THE WITCH WITH NO NAME. Rules, how to enter, and where to send your picture is here: All Treat, No Trick

The photos are already coming in, and I’ll be posting them here for everyone! Thanks, guys, for making my Halloween a more fun than a basket of burning bunnies! You’re the best!

Happy carving!

All Treat, no Trick. Enter Hollows Contest

Yep, it’s that time of year again, and I am gearing up for another Halloween-themed contest! My first contest was way back in 2007, and as always, I’ll be shaking it up a little.

This year, in return for your pictures of your carved pumpkins, I’m giving away fifteen signed books: 5 HOLLOWS INSIDERS, and 10 hard cover THE WITCH WITH NO NAME.

If you haven’t seen THE HOLLOWS INSIDER, it is a one-of-a-kind world book, full-color, spells, recipes, descriptions, all laced together by the investigations of that guy that Rachel hit with the no-hair charm way back in Dead Witch Walking. It’s really amazing, and apart from the pictures that I got from you, the readers, it’s all my work, not a rehash of old stuff pulled from the series. It even glows in the dark.

But you want to know how to win one.

Sending me a photo means you want it on the internet. Ten winners will be chosen at random to receive a signed copy of THE WITCH WITH NO NAME, but the remaining five will be picked by me, according to what I feel like and how full the moon is, and will get a signed copy of THE HOLLOWS INSIDER. (If you want a WWNN, I can do that, instead.) Chances of winning depend upon number of entries, and there’s no cash value for the prizes. Due to the high cost of international shipping, I’m not able to open this to my readers outside the U.S. but you can send me your pumpkin picture for display if you want.

To eliminate the problem we’ve had in the past of people lifting pumpkin pictures from the net that are not their own, I’m going to insist that all eligible pictures include your favorite Hollows book next to your pumpkin–the one that made you cry, the one that made you laugh, the one that kept you up all night, the one that you can find. Fly your Hollows geek flag!

How to submit:

Carve your pumpkin(s)! Take one picture of it with your favorite Hollows book. Send it to me at kim_harrison@comcast.net with PUMPKIN in the subject line so I can find it easily. Tell me why that’s your favorite Hollows book if you want. That’s it. Please have pity on me and do not send me six pictures of your pumpkins. One shot will do. One entry per email, please, but you can include more than one pumpkin in your photo and I will consider them individually. I love group photos!


You may drop pictures on my FB or Twitter as well to show them off, but to enter for a chance for the books, you must send your picture to my personal email so I have an active email to contact you with for your address to send you a book if you win. (This is a must!!)

I’ll be posting all the pictures here at my blog from now to Halloween. Winners will be announced after Halloween. 🙂

Happy carving!
