Contests and Spooky Fun for October

I'm taking part in two exciting contests this month at Night Owl Romance and The Romance Studio.
 I'm at The Romance Studio every day in October until the 31st, talking about my books and (I hope) chatting with readers and friends.  There are all sorts of prizes to be won by readers (and some rather neat promo packages for the winners among the authors taking part.)  Here are the details:

"One winner at random, who comments to any post during the event but not during the two release parties, will beselected to win a Kindle from TRS. All readers can enter to win some fantastic prizes  so generously donated to the event. Remember that these prizes will be listed on a giveaway page at the event and none of these prizes will be awarded until after the event is over.
The list is here: http://theromancestudio.com/extra_drawing4.php

The three authors with the most comments during the event -- between the start of October 6, 2010 EST and midnight EST, October 31, 2010 -- will receive very special promotion packages. They include one year of featured membership at TRS, a one year advertising package at TRS to run from January 2, 2011 and December 31, 2011. They will get a headliner ad each month of 2011. One newsletter ad each month in our Studio Notes newsletter. AND they are guaranteed reviews of 5 of their works, past or present, in the romance genre during 2011  -- the rating will be what the reviewer gives it because we're not a vanity review site. The works must meet the criteria for submission we have at TRS.

Here's the link to the party site:

Now, some rules on eligible comments.

Comments received before October 6, 2010 EST and after midnight EST October 31, 2010 do not count.
Comments during either of the release parties (10/21/10 1-8 PM EST and 10/29/10 4 PM - Midnight EST) to posts specifically for those events will not count. This rule is due to the fact that not everyone in the competition can participate in the release parties. Comments made by readers during those times to posts for this event (not to release party posts) will count.

So if you come along and comment, you'll not only be eligible to win one of the prizes yourself, but you'll help me to be in the running for a promo package prize too!LOL!  Most of all , let's have a lot of fun.  There are so many great others over there taking part.

The second event is the month long 'Scavenger Hunt' over at
