THE RAVEN'S TALE International Halloween Giveaway!

To celebrate my favorite time of year—and to launch the 6-month countdown to the April 2019 release of The Raven's Tale—I present to you my international Halloween giveaway! In case you haven't yet heard of this newest book of mine, The Raven's Tale is my novel about the teenage years of EDGAR ALLAN POE, master of the macabre.

FIVE random winners will receive the Halloween Greetings Prize Pack, which includes signed "You're such a strange boy, Edgar" stickers, designed by author/designer Jenn Reese. The quote comes straight from the pages of The Raven's Tale.

In addition, each of these five Halloween Greetings Prize Pack winners will receive a personalized Halloween greeting from me, written inside a gorgeously Gothic Edgar Allan Poe-themed card, created by CuriousPortraits (the card designs vary and may not look like the one shown above).

ONE random grand prize winner will receive the Halloween Greetings Prize Pack plus a signed advance reading copy (ARC) of The Raven's Tale when ARCs become available later this fall!

The giveaway is open internationally. Please enter using the Rafflecopter below. You must be 18 years or older or have the permission of a parent or guardian. Deadline: The final strokes of midnight on Monday, October 15, 2018 (Pacific Time).

“Winters’s smart, silvery, slithering prose finds beauty in the grotesque—and what is art if not that?”
Daniel Kraus
Co-author of the New York Times bestseller The Shape of Water

“A captivating and intensively researched tribute to the famous poet and his Gothic muse. Against the tapestry of young Poe’s real-world struggles and tortured relationships, Winters weaves a macabre thread of surrealism through meter and rhyme—at times so dreamy in its rhythms and imagery, it teeters between hypnotic and horrifying.”
A.G. Howard
Author of the international and New York Times bestselling Splintered Series

“Spellbinding, imaginative, whimsical, and unforgettable. A rattling good tale that is worthy of the master poet himself.” 
Dwight L. MacPherson
Author of The Imaginary Voyages of Edgar Allan Poe, co-host of The Raven Lunatics

“Haunting and inventive, The Raven's Tale is a heady mix of history and imagination, offering an eerie, original, fantastical window into the man who would become a beloved muse for so many of us.”
Leanna Renee Hieber
Award-winning author of Darker Still and Strangely Beautiful

The Raven’s Tale transports readers to the haunted streets of Antebellum Richmond, the city that shaped the teenaged Poe’s melancholy outlook and inspired his chilling poetry.” 
Chris Semtner
Curator of the Edgar Allan Poe Museum, Richmond, VA
