Halloween Giveaway Winners

Thanks so much to everyone who entered my Halloween giveaway for The Raven's Tale. Wow! There were a lot of you. I greatly appreciate the enthusiasm for this book! I also thoroughly enjoyed reading about your favorite Edgar Allan Poe stories and poems.

Now, without further ado, let's get to the winners!

Rafflecopter did the random choosing for me. Shortened versions of the winners' names are listed below. In a moment, I'll contact the winners directly using the emails they provided.

The 5 Winners of the Halloween Greetings Prize Pack:

Alexa M.
Azzurra R.
Molly M.H.
Amanda S.

The Grand Prize Winner of an Advance Copy of The Raven's Tale:

Linda H. 
(who won through her entry in which she correctly identified the missing word from the opening line of "The Raven" as "midnight.")

Congratulations, winners! 

If you didn't win this time around, please don't despair. We still have six more months until The Raven's Tale releases (exactly six months from today, in fact!). You'll likely find more giveaways for the novel between now and then.   

Thank you again for participating, and HAPPY HALLOWEEN!



“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
