Any fans of Halloween and cozy mysteries are invited. Throughout all of October, participants can join in by reading any number of Halloween themed cozy mysteries. For each mystery you read you can earn 2 points. If you read my latest book, Pumpkin Pie Waffle, you can earn 3 points. Other events and challenges will also allow you to earn points.
At the end of the month, a Google Form will be made available for all participants to fill out and report how many points they earned. For each point earned you will be entered in a drawing to win a special edition Holiday gift package from me, Carolyn! This holiday prize package may include items like a tote bag, bookmarks, a signed copy of one of the Diner of the Dead mysteries, and more!
Additionally, I will be writing and giving out a FREE Halloween themed murder mystery party kit for all of you to use! The kit should be available soon (most likely within the week) so keep an eye out for that right here on my blog.
The month long challenges are as follows:
- Read any number of Halloween themed Cozy Mysteries during October (2 points each)

I myself will also be participating by reading along. Each weekend for the rest of October I will review a new Halloween themed cozy mystery here on the blog. Readers are encouraged to share what they are reading in the official group page and discuss their favorite Halloween books, traditions, and plans for this year!
