Crossroads 2013

This Halloween, meet us at THE CROSSROADS…

Last year’s tour was a real scream. Check out the amazing authors / bloggers who participated. Check back here in a few weeks for more info on the 2013 tour which will take place October 20-26, 2013.


RESEARCH QUESTIONS. This year the grand prize winner will be selected via a Rafflecopter draw open to everyone. However, the hunt for clues is a fun part of the Crossroads experience and we wanted to keep it alive. Sooooo, search for the answer somewhere on the participating blogs on THAT particular day of the tour. Answer all the questions correctly to enter a bonus prize draw for – separate from the grand prize.

NOTE – I’ve put all the questions up as I’m headed to a conference this week and may not get a chance to log on each day. So…you’ll find the answers to these somewhere on the blogs, on the specific day they fall under.

October 20: 

“All of my short stories want to be _________.”

October 21: 

Just staying ______ is taking way more thought than I expected.”

October 22: 

“If I could pick, I’d be an ________.”

October 23: 

”… the view from my bedroom window was of the ____________ across the street.”

October 24: 

“My conflicted _____________? Far scarier than any horror movie.”

October 25: 

“Every time I try to write something contemporary, the ___________ slips into it.”

October 26: 

“I think her most unique qualities are her ___________ imagination…”

  3. My favorite paranormal author is… well, does Edgar Allen Poe count? He’s quite bone-chilling, I find! I am soo excited to take part in in this contest!
