GGMMMU ~ Opening Ceremony including the rules and main giveaway

I am super excited to be hosting the Ghoulishly Good Monster Mash Mix Up for the second year in a row! I am aiming for bigger and better than last year. :-) Just in case you missed the festivities last year, I'll give you the 411.

You will find below, a Rafflecopter. In it are questions pertaining to certain books, characters, series, etc.... Because this is a monster mix up, there will be questions pertaining to different types of monsters and paranormal or  fantasy books. Each day from now through Nov. 2nd, I will add new questions. What type of questions will there be? Honestly? I try to mix it up. I don't like things to be toooooo easy or too difficult so I may ask a few multiple choice questions, some fill in the blank, some match up, and some strait forward who is this character questions. Anything goes! :D  Ahahahaha! Just so you know, only correct answers will count! All other entries will be deleted. It wouldn't be a very good challenge otherwise! :-)

In an effort to make it a little less overwhelming, after today, I am going to focus each day's questions on one type of monster or certain monsters. For example today the focus is on beings that have unexplained powers. Tomorrow we will talk about my favorite supe, werewolves. :-), every day the focus will be different. I'll try to squeeze as many supes in as I can. Some will have more fan fair and some will have less, sharing their day with other less popular monsters.

I will place the link to today's post at the top of the page! Come back and check this GGMMMU post, as each day's questions will be found in this Rafflecopter. In addition to this main challenge/giveaway, I will have other smaller giveaways for each day. Those will have their own Rafflecopter on the other days' posts.

This year I have been super busy recruiting some awesome authors to represent the beings that they write about in interviews and a few guest posts. Due to this and because I LOVE all of the different types of monsters and the books that they are in and can talk about them endlessly, there will be more than one GGMMMU post on most of the days. Be sure to stop by each one because you won't want to miss out on any of the fun and surprises! Also, you never know if I'll ask a question that can be answered by visiting another post for the day!

The participating authors have agreed to answer my fun and freakishly spooktakular, monsterific questions that I will share with you throughout the event. In the spirit of a costume party, we  you will judge them and on the last day there will be a special Rafflecopter and in it you will tell me who should be awarded each available title. The options will be listed on the last day with the Rafflecopter. You'll just have to wait and see! :P 

In addition, if you are going to be here anyway, comment on the post each day or share the post in some way, and then be sure to enter my CIG for October (the links are up above. :D) Don't be scared off by the huge number of possible entries. You can scroll down and just enter the comments for today. The only mandatory option is following in some way, after that you can mix and match which posts you comment on or share. Obviously the more you enter, the better your chances are. However, a very wise man once told me that you only have to have one horse in the race in order to win.

This Giveaway is open to all followers age 13 or older provided the prize offered is available to you. Ebooks will be awarded from Amazon, B&N, or Smashwords where available or from the author, any gift cards would come from Amazon or wherever specified on that Rafflecopter, and print books would come from The Book Depository, Amazon or from the author.

There will be a multitude of winners of the main giveaway due to the generosity of the participating authors. Some prizes are only for US or Canada but most are open to everyone!

I will email the winners and they will need to respond within 48 hours.

Please be sure to NEVER leave answers in the comments. All answers must be entered in the Rafflecopter ONLY.

Please share the fun with others. That makes it more enjoyable and improves the pay off for my efforts and the efforts of all the authors who took the time to take part. :-) Who knows, I may even surprise the person who does the most promoting with a special prize of their own (assuming that someone goes above and beyond and brings lots of other people).

I have to give a huge thank you to author J.C McKenzie for donating a prize to this giveaway as well as two prizes for other giveaways. :D

Thank you J.C., you are awesome! 

I also need to thank authors Mimi Sebastian, Paula Westin x3, and Kelly Oram. I will possibly be adding to this list as I seem to be getting more responses. You are all wonderful!
