Darkspell Launch Spookfesta

First, I'd like to give special recognition to the ingenious Talli Roland for letting me borrow her idea for Darkspell's Launch. Thank you, Talli--you're a doll.

Today is the day where I start Darkspell's official countdown to its much-praised launch date of October 31st! Halloween, can you believe that?

So what is involved in this countdown and what makes it so special? I've created an illustration for every chapter, and I will post each consecutive chapter for every day that passes until Halloween. Guess what? When we've hit the 39th chapter, Darkspell will become available to everyone!

And the illustration countdown begins today!

Darkspell will be available on Amazon as well as other ebook hotspots--yes, Kindle too. Yay!

I'd love to christen Darkspell by brewing up an online "If I had all the magic in the world, I'd ..." spookfesta. On Halloween day and just for fun, post a photograph of *what you'd do with your magic, and share with me what you'd do if you discovered that you had all the magic in the world at your fingertips. Create world peace? Turn the ocean into ice cream? Fly to the moon? The universe is the limit--oops, actually, there are no limits.

For those who don't have blogs--no sweat. On your Facebook status post 'If I had all the magick in the world, I'd ..." in your status and tag me (@Author Elizabeth Mueller) so I can sneak up on you and add you to my prize list, and as for Twitter, hashtag #darkspell.

If you're interested on joining Darkspell Launch Spookfesta, please sign up in the form below -or- leave a comment! On All Hallow's Eve, I will post the links of everyone who has entered so we could enjoy the magical time. All Spookfesters will be entered into my drawing of a $10 Amazon gift certificate, an autographed copy of my Darkspell Poster, and a copy of Darkspell!

This is all just for fun, please don't feel pressured--you are welcome to drop by on Halloween and hop around everyone's link just to say hi, but as always, I'm forever grateful for any help and support you offer!
I would appreciate any help you can give by spreading the word--thank you!
