Halloween Giveaway. Signed Copy of "The Awakening" and more!

Giveaway Closed
The Winner was Len of Musings of a Happy Reader!
Ok, this is my first blog giveaway, and I decided what better way to start things off than a Halloween giveaway.

First, one of my favorite books, by one of my favorite authors:  "The Summoning" by Kelley Armstrong.  This is the first book in her Darkest Powers series, and follows 15year old Chloe as she discovers she has the ability to see dead people and gets sent to a group home because she is diagnosed with schizophrenia.  While there she meets and befriends some of her fellow housemates.  Set in the same world as Kelley Armstrong’s adult series, Women of the Otherworld, but a complete stand alone series, this is great for new fans or old alike!  As a great bonus I was able to buy a signed, paperback copy of this book!

Second is a brand new Arc of Clare B. Dunkle's "The House of Dead Maids."  I haven't read this one yet, but thought it was perfect to pass along for Halloween.  I received this book at a giveaway from my local bookstore.  This is a store about a maid brought to Seldom House to take care of a young Heathcliff, long before he becomes the man he is during Wuthering Heights.  The maid must deal with not only her troubled young charge, but also the ghost of his previous maid, and others.

One winner will receive both of these books, plus an Emily Strange notebook, some Halloween pencils and erasers, and some Halloween candy, as well as a the dog pictured, since I believe everyone of my giveaways must include a reading companion!  I might even throw in some extras, and if I reach 125 followers, I'll even throw in a copy of "The Awakening" the second book in Kelley Armstrong's Greatest Powers series. If lucky, I will even be able to get a signed copy of that book as well. 

Now on for the rules.
This Contest starts on 9/27/10 and will run until 12 midnight on 10/18/10.

Only US/Canada addresses for this one, sorry, I have two giveaways planned for November and at least one will be open to international.

You must be a follower (old or new doesn't matter, especially since my blog is so new)
You may enter up to two times a week, every week of the giveaway, but they must be at least two days apart. 
You may also tweet about the giveaway twice a week, but again they must be at least two days apart.

You can gain one extra entry for posting this giveaway in your blog.
You may gain 5 extra entries for posting this button on your blog.
All you have to do is fill out this FORM, comments are great, but only the form will get you entered.
Don't worry if you accidentally enter too many times, I will only count two per week, and will just discard the others; you won't get disqualified.
I will contact the winner on 10/19/10, and they will have 48 hours to respond before I pick a new winner.
Good luck to everyone.
