With a little hint, last week's quote proved no match for your trivia skills! Well done, everyone. CONGRATULATIONS to Diane McConnell our Week 2 winner! (Yay, Diane!!). Diane's halloween bookmark and posh pen will be rolling her way this week.

Now, for just a bit of NEWS before we get to this week's quote. First, my Ellora's Cave Wild Winter Quickie, CHRISTMAS HELP HER, will be released on December 13th! Yay. A lovely and auspicious date since 13 is a lucky number. :) I'll get a little blurb and excerpt up in the next couple of weeks.

The second bit of news is that the Zircon Short Story anthology (which I haven't had any news on myself in awhile) finally has a release date! Yay. The anthology, SUM3, will be released in e-book and print from Zumaya Publishing in early November. I think the e-release is first and roughly a week later the print book will be released. YAY! This is the book that has my Zircon award winning short story, The Last Guardian, as well as tons of other speculative romance short stories. I can't wait to read it myself!! As soon as I can get my hands on a copy of the cover art, I'll post it. And I'll let you know the minute the book is released.

And NOW for this week's GUESS THAT PARANORMAL MOVIE QUOTE quote :) This week's quote comes from a real cult classic film--a romantic paranormal which is a little more recent than last week's movie (and hopefully not quite as obscure! LOL!) And here it is:

WEEK'S 3 QUOTE: "Half-Vampire... Half-Lycan... but stronger than both."

What do you think? A little easier? There were quite a few good quotes to choose from, but this one is a real key quote. Good luck! Remember, just send me an email with your guess and you're entered in both the Week 3 drawing and the Final Grand Prize drawing at the end of the contest. Official Rules and How the Contest Works are posted below.

Speaking of the Final Grand Prize drawing--remember I mentioned a coffin pen box? My artist outdid herself on this one. LOL. Here are a couple of pictures.

What do you think? Pretty cool, huh? I'm tempted to keep the box myself :)

Have fun this week everyone! Good luck!


Each week, starting on Tuesday, for the four weeks of October, I will post a quote from a Paranormal/Spooky Movie--hopefully one not too obscure. To enter, just send me an email with the title of the Movie, your name and your email address.

If I think the quote is proving too difficult for people to guess, I'll post a clue on the Friday after the quote is first posted on the website.

A random winner will be selected from all correct entries each week and announced on the day when the next quote is posted. After the final week, I'll draw a random winner from all correct entries from all 4 weeks for a Final Grand Prize. That means if you enter each week for all 4 weeks of the contest (and you guess the correct movie each week ), you'll have 4 entries in the Final Grand Prize drawing.

Each weekly winner will receive a posh pen and a Halloween thong bookmark. One Grand Prize winner will receive a gift box with (among other things) an Isabo Kelly e-book of your choice, or a coupon for a free Isabo Kelly e-book of any upcoming release--this does INCLUDE Christmas Help Her when it's released (coupon good for 1 book only; no expiration date).

1. An individual may only enter once per week.
2. An individual may enter once each week for the 4 weeks the contest runs (for a total of 4 entries).
3. Each entry must contain the Movie Title for that week. Once a new quote is posted, entries from the previous week's quote will not be accepted.
4. One winner from all correct entries will be drawn at random each week.
5. Weekly winners will receive a posh pen and a Halloween thong bookmark.
6. After the final week, all correct entries from all 4 weeks will be put into a Grand Prize drawing where one winner will be selected at random. If an individual enters and guesses the Movie Title correctly each week, that individual will have 4 entries placed into the Final Grand Prize drawing.
7. The Grand Prize will be a prize box containing the following (subject to availability): a coffin pen box, a dragon charm on velvet thong bookmark, chocolate, playing cards (with EC and CP book covers on the faces), a free Isabo Kelly e-book of choice or a coupon for 1 free Isabo Kelly e-book of a future release (good for 1 book only; no expiration date) and a handcrafted necklace.
8. Isabo Kelly reserves the right to alter the contents of the Final Grand Prize should any of the above items become unavailable. Final content will be announced with the announcement of the winner.
