Hug-a-Horror-Writer… GIVEAWAY

 

It’s Hug-a-Horror-Writer Month!! Or at least that’s what I’ve been calling it… The Halloween season is a beautiful time for those who love all things dark and dreary, whether it’s a gore-fest of bloody exploding puppies, a quieter deeper creepier bent that crawls inside you and keeps you up at night, or a way to win a FREE BOOK just for giving a horror writer a hug!

tl;dr — Leave a review for a chance to WIN a FREE BOOK

The details: first, the book you can win. No one has the same TBR pile or even gets their fix in the same format, I get that. So the winner will get to choose not only WHICH book they would like to win among my titles, but which format they want (ebook, paperback, even audiobook in some cases). And all you have to do is share your thoughts on something you’ve already read!

So, how to enter to win? Easy! Leave a review and share it…

  1. Go to Amazon (this link will get you to all my books)
  2. Choose a book to review
  3. Give it some stars and a couple (or a lot) of words
  4. Share the book’s page on Facebook or Twitter (on the right side of the page you’ll see these icons  
  5. Include “i just reviewed” in your sharing post
  6. Tag me in the post (@kelliowenauthor on facebook, @kelli_owen on twitter) or otherwise let me know you’ve done this (via tweet, fb, email, however)
  7. Your name goes in the hat once for each review

While you can (and should) continue to review beyond the drawing because it’s nice and authors really do appreciate it, I do have to set a date to award a winner… how about Monday, Nov 13? That gives you three week(end)s to formulate your thoughts and set them free in the world.

Go. Review. Win.

And thank you in advance for the hugs… H a p p y   H a l l o w e e n ! ! 

FLOATERS – on SALE

floaters-fb20

 

The ebook of my new novel FLOATERS is ON SALE for a limited time thru Payhip*  (use coupon code KO1601, sale ends Sunday 8/28)

Detective Carly Greene was only eleven when she learned Lake Superior was a brutal beast, capable of bringing up long forgotten memories of pain and death, by occasionally releasing the bodies of those trapped beneath her waves.

As an adult, Carly still despises the bodies occasionally coughed up, and the high water eroding the edge of the graveyard this year gave “floaters” a new meaning. But she could never have prepared for what else broke free to swim with those long dead.

Part myth. Part monster. Older than time.

Carly, along with the medical examiner and a local reporter, must find and destroy a forgotten legend in the waters at the edge of Lake Superior. Before it decides it’s time to feed. And breed…

WHITE PICKET PRISONS

xmassale-wppDetective Mark Baker is an honest cop and an all-around good guy. After a chaotic night, Mark starts to reexamine his role in the system he no longer believes in.

That’s when an ominous letter arrives from his estranged sister. She sounds distraught, suicidal. Her words send him on a mission to a small Midwestern town, uncertain if he’ll find her dead or alive.

Valley Mill is a quiet little utopia. Everyone gets along. There’s zero crime. On the outside, it’s exactly what Mark thinks society should be. But what Mark discovers behind the pristine fences and closed doors is far worse than anything he could have imagined.

And he learns very quickly to be careful what you wish for…

GRAVE WAX

George Morey would do anything to save his wife from certain death and has tried every treatment known, from chemical to homeopathic to prayer—all to no avail.

So when the local witch requests unique ingredients from the town’s gravedigger, George complies without question—willing to sacrifice his own past to secure a future with the woman he loves… more than life itself.

LIVE SPECIMENS

 

The town of Mackinaw is all but abandoned at the end of tourist season. Now, with an approaching blizzard, a strange transport ship has crashed along the frozen shoreline—its escaped cargo genetically engineered for only one purpose…

Death.

Howling winds hide the screams of townsfolk, as retired biology teacher Ken Jardine leads a small group to first understand and then destroy what they’re dealing with, before the storm gives the upper hand to the Live Specimens

WAITING OUT WINTER

Nick and the boys return from the summer’s last hunting trip to find the streets empty, the beachfront and park abandoned, and the windows of their own homes boarded shut.

The hunters have become the hunted, in an apocalyptic plague that pits man against beast—very tiny beasts. And Nick is determined to keep his strength, courage and family alive during what could very well be the last winter of their lives.

This will notify you, via email, of new blogs when posted and help keep you in the loop during the season of too much spam, xmas popups from hell, and the rest of the deluge no human can possibly keep up with. And of course, you should follow my author page on Facebook for more frequent updates!

Hope you had a great Halloween… now let’s get the turkey ready and stock up on wrapping paper.

Scares That Care Weekend

scaresthatcareScares That Care Weekend
June 27-29
at the Doubletree by Hilton
in Williambsburg, VA

Not your normal horror convention…

From the official website:

The difference between our convention and the others out there is simple: all of our proceeds will go to the families that need our assistance. “Scares That Care!” is a charitable organization, designed to bring together the fans of “all things spooky” in order to give back to the families that need it most by providing money, toys and other items to help sick children.

Delighted to be invited to be part of this movement, I will be attending the convention’s maiden voyage this weekend as a guest writer. You can find me at a table in the celebrity room where I will have the items listed below, otherwise my schedule is:

PANEL — FRIDAY   9:00pm
The More Things Change – It is said that writing and publishing have changed in the advent of the digital age. But has it really, or do the same perils and pitfalls still exist? Veteran authors Thomas Monteleone, Kelli Owen and Mary SanGiovanni are joined by newcomers Kristopher Rufty, Jonathan Janz, and Chris Jensen for a discussion on writing and selling horror in the era of Kindle. Moderated by Jacob Haddon.

READING — SATURDAY   1:30pm
Kelli Owen and Mary SanGiovanni – Reading and Q&A

And what I’ll have with me? For the first time, I will actually have my entire library with me.

Novels: Six Days, White Picket Prisons, Live Specimens
Novellas: Waiting Out Winter, The Neighborhood, Grave Wax, Survivor’s Guilt, Buried Memories, Crossroads, and my newest release, Deceiver
Collection: Black Bubbles
as well as a smattering of magazines, chaps, etc. including Fresh Blood chap with Bob Freeman & Dave Alexander, New Dawn with Robert Ford, Nate Southard and Maurice Broaddus, Dust/Divorcing The Dead dual chap with Brian Keene, and the Halloween edition of Shroud Magazine

And  brand spanking new, being unveiled at this convention, I will have: Posters!

Each of my novellas has been turned into a readable piece of artwork for your wall (limited con supplies). Posters measure 14×25.5″ with a gloss cover and UV coating. Click individual poster for larger view.
