We’re having a Twitter contest in celebration of the approach of Halloween! For the next 5 days, everyone who tweets the following message will be entered to win a hardcover copy of Through the Flashlight’s Beam: a collection of classic scary stories for reading aloud. This contest is open worldwide and we’ll be picking multiple winners based on how many people enter so pass it along to anyone who likes scary stories or free books. The more people that enter, the more copies we’ll give away!

Here’s the qualifying phrase:

Win a hardcover collection of all your #allhallowsread Halloween favorites from @pricednostalgia http://j.mp/ptYyBx Retweet to enter!

Both traditional and “new” Twitter retweets count as entries so if you tweet it and your friends retweet you, they get entered too. Pretty cool, eh?

The only catch? Just don’t edit the message. We’ll be searching for that exact message when we pick the winner on Friday, October 21st, 2011 so make sure it appears exactly as above somewhere in your tweet (adding something before or after it is fine). We’ll contact the winners through our Twitter account so make sure that you follow us so you don’t miss the @reply.

Want to preview the book before you enter? You can peek inside the book on Amazon or download a free preview on your Kindle here.

Good luck!
