STALKERS AND SERIAL KILLERS CONTEST: Win Arcs of The Body Finder and Deadly Little Lies

In honor of one of our favorite months and holidays, Halloween, the FNC has decided to hold a contest and give away not one, but TWO exciting arcs. And because it's Halloween, we wanted these arcs to be scary. Really scary.

But there is a problem.

Vampires are now sparkly. Therefore not scary.

Werewolves are now sexy. Therefore not scary.

Zombies are now prom dates. Therefore not scary.

And with half of the YA literary sphere dating creatures of the night, well, we were running out of things to really scare us. But then we realized the two things that will always, always scare the crap out of us!






STALKERS!!!!

and...

SERIAL KILLERS!!!!

That's right, nothing better than good old fashioned stalkers trying to kill you and so...we are giving away one arc of Kimberly Derting's upcoming debut THE BODY FINDER. And...one arc of Laurie Faria Stolarz's DEADLY LITTLE LIES!



Here's how to win:

In order to be eligible for the contest, you must be a follower of First Novels Club and comment below with what scares you!

Want extra entries?

Comment on up to 5 other FNC posts between now and 10/31 for up to 5 extra entries!

(Please just note in your comment how many extra entries you'll earn [i.e., +4 for 4 additional comments]. We'll keep track and double check at the close of the contest.)


The Fine Print:

Contest is open worldwide. Winner will be contacted by email at the close of contest. If you do not leave your email address in your comment, it is your responsibility to check back at the FNC blog to see if you've won. You have 72 hours to claim your prize, or an alternate winner will be chosen.

Contest ends on 10/31 at 11:59pm EST.

P.S. Check out our interview with Kimberly Derting and our co-review of THE BODY FINDER. Stay tuned tomorrow for more exciting news with LAURIE FARIA STOLARZ.

  1. Ooh I want to be entered. And it's so cool. Your contest ends on my birthday! I am a follower and spiders scare me to death. When I was 2 I was bitten by a brown recluse and even though I don't remember it scares me. I still have a mark on my ear where I was bitten.

    I, uh, don't have many fears. Not things like spiders or darkness or even something like vampires or zombies. Instead, I think my biggest fear is personal failure. I'm very much Hermione.

  11. I love the cover for the Body Finder book! So lovely...! Um, I have entophobia. I think. That's the one where you jump up and down screaming when you see anything with more than four legs, right? :)And I'm also scared of heights. And a world without trees, that's why I don't like my hometown. Its just a mound of sand. One lone pine on top of the dune. Eck.

  16. I'm afraid of serial killers and stalkers. Seriously. It's the name of this contest, but they really are scary. Really. I am traumatized by a previous stalker experience...*shivers* It wasn't that bad, but it was really creepy...

  18. I love this contest! These are both books I really, really want to read =D

    Something that completely freaks my crap out is snakes. If you ever want to hear me scream bloody murder in a very high pitched voice, throw a snake towards me. I will also quite possibly pee my pants too.

  23. I am afraid of bugs. Not all bugs, but most. The top scariest bugs (according to me):
    Moths
    Big Spiders
    Ladybugs

    Moths are just gross... there really isn't a redeeming quality I can think of. Big spiders, 'nuff said! Ladybugs. They never die. They are the energizer bunnies of bugs. Or maybe there is just always one to replace the dead ones... I don't know. Ick.

    Yes, I know I'm lame.

    Oh and the dark, spiders, serial killers and my friend, Alice. She's like a homocidal Alice and Wonderland who hates to be touched or be stood near to. I make the strangest friends!

    I'm absolutely terrified of losing the people that i love! I hate watching programmes about youn people dying and leaving everyone else behind, because it makes me think what would I do if that happened!
    I don't know what scares me most though, leaving everyone else behind, or being left behind. Probably the latter, because I'm a coward!

  37. Too freakin' true! I enjoy romance as much as the next girl, but sometimes I want the things that go bump in the night to scare me, not just make me giggle or make the main character swoon.

    The thing that scares me the most?
    That would have to be being buried alive with spiders. Creepy and gross right? I have nightmares like that sometimes. *shivers* =)

  41. Oh this one looks really good! I don't really have anything that really really scares me, to tell you the truth. I've never been in a situation where I've held onto my fear for a long time. Something I don't like, although doesn't necessarily scare me...are sharks (not a big deal though cause I hardly go in the ocean!). I'm not afraid of spiders..I just kill them, lol. I'm not afraid of snakes or lizards of any kind..in fact, I love them! I'm not afraid of bugs..oh they just get squished, lol. I'm also not really afraid of heights, flying, or boats..although the last 2 do make me motion sick, lol.

    Great question, really had me thinking..but still can't find anything that really scares me bone deep.

  45. What scares me most? Okay, definitely spiders and cockroaches! Ugh. Just thinking about them makes me paranoid and then I keep thinking they're nearby *twitch* I freak out whenever I see them - yuck! And also drowning, I can't swim.. I miserably failed swimming lessons when I was younger and anytime my head is underwater, alarm bells go off. Terrified of drowning!

    I would love to win one of those books, awesome contest!
