Exciting things are afoot here at Muckross Farm. Last week the mailman delivered these creeptastic ARCs of SLASHER GIRLS AND MONSTER BOYS, a new YA horror anthology coming out in August with stories from me, April Tucholke, Cat Winters, Leigh Bardugo, Marie Lu, Carrie Ryan, Jay Kristoff, and many more fantastic authors.
And we're giving away one of these hot-of-the-presses ARCs to some creative readers who are ready to be frightened...
HOW TO WIN:
We want to see you at your creatively slashiest. Show us your macabre side and post a pic of something scary to Instagram or Twitter, under hashtag #SLASHERGIRLSARC
SCARY PIC SUGGESTIONS:
1. Hold a seance
2. Read a horror story in a cemetery
3. Recreate a horror scene from film/tv
4. Play light as a feather, stiff as a board
5. Say Bloody Mary 3 times in a mirror at midnight
6. Show us your Slasher boyfriend/girlfriend/platonic friend--Pinhead, Freddy, Xenomorph Queen...
7. Draw a chalk outline of a body on a sidewalk. Possibly yours.
SUPER SPECIAL ENTRY: Dig your own shallow grave. Anyone who goes to this much trouble will be placed in their own pool, i.e. your chances of winning are extremely good. Shallow grave guidelines: Be safe about digging. We’ll not be responsible for bodily injury due to spade mishaps, digging near power/gas lines, or digging on a too hot day, etc. Keep it safe, keep it shallow. On a beach, perhaps. Or in your garden.
Enter the giveaway as many times as you want (but dig your grave only once). The Special Pool entries will be given priority.
And don’t let us hinder your slashy creativity. If you have other ideas, let’s see them! Tweet us your fave horror quotes! Show us your…scary dogs? Just keep it legal. And don’t forget to RT and use the hashtag #SLASHERGIRLSARC
