Fall is in the air! While the official start of Murder, Monsters & Mayhem (Mx3) isn’t for a few weeks yet (the start of October), I’ve received a few emails asking about signing up to participate
So, without further ado, below is the official link-up for the 2012 Murder, Monsters & Mayhem. There are no real rules for participating, just read/watch and blog something in the horror/supernatural/thriller genres in the month of October. Participating in Carl’s R.I.P IV? The books you read for his event count toward Mx3 as well! Easy peasy right?
So, link up your sign-up post below. If you have a list of books you plan on reading, include those in your post. If you’d rather wing it and decide what books to read as the mood strikes you, go for it!
Each week, I will post a link-up in which you will link up your post for that week. I will pick a weekly winner from the link-up. That winner will receive a copy of each of the books featured that previous week (when available) plus some other Halloween goodies!
If you are a horror or thriller writer, or even a fan of these genres and are interested in submitting a guest post or giveaway, there’s still time to sign up. Simply fill out the form in this post or email me at jennsbookshelf AT gmail.
I think that does it! Go forth and read something chilling or terrifying!
Looking for horror recommendations that aren’t too terrifying? Following is a list of “Horror Books for Beginners” I came up with some time ago:
