#HorrorForLibraries Giveaway #1: A Collection of Dreamscapes: Poetry by Christina Sng

Today I am kicking off a new series of #HorrorForLibraries giveaways. They will run every week, on Thursdays. And here is the best part, if you enter any week, you are eligible for ALL weeks.

The only rule is that you need to be affiliated with a public library in America or Canada currently. My rationale behind that is that I will be encouraging you to read these books and share them with patrons. While many of them are advanced reader copies that you cannot add to your collections, if you get the chance to read them, my hope is that you will consider ordering a copy for your library and give away the ARC away as a prize.

Okay now how to enter. If you are interested in being included in any giveaway at any time, you must email me at zombiegrl75 [at] gmail [dot] com with the subject line "#HorrorForLibraries." In the body of the email all you have to say is that you want to be entered and the name of your library.

Each entry will be considered for EVERY giveaway. I will randomly draw a winner on Fridays sometime after 5pm central. If you win, you are ineligible to win again. However, if you do not win, you carry over into the next week. There is NO NEED to reenter.

Why I am doing this? Well, one of the parts of my job that has gone away for the time being is my visits to libraries, library conferences, and library systems to provide general RA training. On all of those visits, I would  fill my suitcase with giveaway titles and they were mostly horror. It not only gave me a chance to give away books as prizes, but also it allowed me the opportunity to book talk horror even if that wasn't on the agenda.

Now that my services have transferred to 100% virtual, for the time being, I have an overflow of books in my house and less of chance to promote horror to the unsuspecting masses of library workers.

And thus my #HorrorForLibraries giveaway is born. This will be going on indefinitely, so the sooner you enter the better your chances. And this week is a great way to start because the book I have is a brand new finished copy that you can add to you collections ASAP.

A Collection of Dreamscapes by Christina Sng is a poetry collection every public library should own. Please click over to the regular blog where today I posted my review of the book and an interview with the author.

I also have a statement of support for the publisher, Raw Dog Screaming Press who is on my approved list of Independent Horror Publishers for Libraries. I would also like to thank them for providing the copy I am giveaway today.

So today is your chance to get in on the #HorrorForLibraries giveaway multi-week extravaganza on the ground floor. Follow the directions above and be entered to win this week, and every week thereafter.

All entries must be received by 5pm central on Fridays. I will draw a weekly winner from those eligible entries, let that person know via email that they won, and then announce the winner publicly the next Thursday when I announce the new giveaway. Again, if you win once, you are removed from the pool of entries, but if you do not win, you stay in the running.

Good luck! I can't wait to get more #HorrorForLibraries out into the wild.
