The Horror Writers Association Announces Its
Fourth Annual HALLOWEEN HAUNTS Online Blog Event
Spend Halloween with the Horror Writers!
July 10, 2014—The Horror Writers Association is proud to present its Fourth Annual Halloween Haunts blog event featuring blog posts and excerpts from some of today’s best horror writers. In celebration of Halloween and horror writing, the HWA will post at least one new blog entry by a horror writer every day—and two posts on most days—from October 1 to October 31. Many posts will feature exclusive excerpts from new stories and novels as well as book and e-book giveaways.
HWA members will be blogging about their favorite Halloween traditions, their treasured (or terrifying!) Halloween experiences, what life is like as a horror writer, or even their experience as a member of the HWA. No one knows Halloween better than horror writers, and there’s no better time of year than October to dig into some horror writing!
Halloween Haunts will help connect horror writers with readers, share some Halloween fun (and a few good chills), and showcase the benefits of HWA membership.
Halloween Haunts will take place on the Dark Whispers blog (http://www.horror.org/blog/), the official blog of the HWA. Giveaways and prizes will be announced daily, and all giveaways are provided by individual members of the HWA.
Past Halloween Haunts events are archived online: http://horror.org/category/halloween/.
Founded in 1985, the Horror Writers Association (www.horror.org) exists to promote and protect the careers of professional horror writers, to mentor those seeking to enter their ranks, and to raise the profile of the horror genre in the publishing industry and among readers. The HWA gives the annual, iconic Bram Stoker Awards® for Superior Achievement, named in honor of Bram Stoker, author of the seminal horror work, Dracula, and organizes The Bram Stoker Awards Weekend, a conference for horror writers, which occurs every two years, with the next scheduled for Atlanta in conjunction with the 25th Anniversary World Horror Convention in May 2015: www.whc2015.org.
