Spooktoberfest Winner and Runner-ups

The day is here! The day our Spooktoberites have been waiting for... it's reveal day!

And let me just say... this was hard. Like any hop or fest that has a winner, it was challenging just to narrow it down far enough to where I could wrap my head around who would be given the grand prize.

There are so many really REALLY great entries. We had a little bit of everything; slashers, vampires, zombies, haunted houses, pranksters, horror, humor, poems, etc. It was a Halloween Lover's delight!

Enough with my yammering, here is who I've picked as my winner and runner-ups...

The WINNER by a "splinter" is

Perfect! I loved the character voices, their names, and the originality of the whole thing. I could sit and listen, er, read them talk all day. Thanks for the wonderful Spooktoberfest piece Samantha!
 
 Seriously, it was so close between WriterlySam and these next writers...

I couldn't get over the relationship the vampire and the attendent had. I really liked all of the different characters you had and feel of the story was spot on.

Stacie was so brave to stop and watch what happened to her friend. I'm dying to know what happens next. Does she make it?

This one made me LOL. Karma at it's finest! For a first-timer, you did really great Lily!

    
Jackie and I both loved what each other picked but we wanted to spread the wealth so we picked different ones. Why? We have another little surprise... the Runner-Up's will be receiving a little something special as well and we didn't want any duplicates.

Check out who Jackie chose here!

You guys will be receiving emails in the near future!

Hope everyone has an awesome Halloween!!
