Spooktacular Giveaway Hop – 2015 – Sign Ups



This is typically my biggest hop of the year and the only hop that I am personally still hosting. If you only participate in an occasional hop this should be one you choose!

If you are looking for other hops please stop by BookHounds or StuckInBooks as they regularly host hops.


6th Annual Spooktacular Giveaway Hop

October 15th to 31st

PLEASE note the minimum prize requirements in the rules below.  This effects authors and bloggers who typically giveaway only ebooks & swag.

As you prepare your giveaway post please remember the following:

1. The Spooktacular Giveaway Hop Images needs to be part of your post.
2. Include the linky list with all the participating blogs at the end of your post OR link to this giveaway hop page.
3. Your giveaway must be book related and be valued at at least $10.  You can giveaway gift cards, books, etc.
4. Due to this size of this hop there is a restriction on how many possible entries you can have.  No more than 6 possible and only 1 can be Mandatory and must be quick and easy to do.  All others must be optional. All entries must be able to be done on one visit to your blog – Entries such as tweet once a day are NOT allowed (tweeting once is fine).  KEEP IT SIMPLE & super fast to enter so they can hop to the next blog.
5. You must turn off word verification/CAPTCHA if you are requiring more than one comment for entries – If you are concerned about spam then enable comment moderation or use rafflecopter.
6. This must be a giveaway specifically for this hop.

7. MINIMUM VALUE – There is a $10 Minimum Value for this hop.  You must have at least 1 prize with a value of at least $10.00.  You can include additional prizes that are less than $10 to additional winners if you choose.  Authors who wish to giveaway ebook copies of their book can do so but MUST include a gift card or additional prize to go along with the ebook to meet the minimum value requirement.  Same with swag… you can include it but must have something valued at at least $10

8.  FAMILY FRIENDLY – No Erotica or Gruesome Horror or super sexy cover, etc.  Those with young children and teenagers should be able to view your post/blog without being embarrassed!  This includes not only your giveaway but the images on your blog as well.


Your post can go up anytime beginning on Wednesday, October 14th but must be up no later than Thursday, October 15th at 9:00 AM EST.

Please mark your calendars. A reminder email will be sent out a few days before the hops starts.

To participate please add your blog to the linky below with your shipping info in parenthesis following your blog name.  Don’t forget your shipping info. I will assume you only want to ship to the US if you do and will add (US).
