Last week, I shared one of my own personal supernatural experiences. If you need a refresher, you can read it here. In addition, Bob Freeman shared his own account from his paranormal investigations which you can read here.
That concept led to me conjuring up a contest, but I am not very good at coming up with these sorts of things. Of course, leave it to word-guru and all around awesome individual Cate Gardner to provide an idea that gave my initial concept some very spooky legs.
Now, in the spirit of The Bleeding Room, I have decided that it’s now your turn to share your own ghost stories. I want to hear some of your true real-life ghost and/or horror stories.
To enter the contest, here’s what you need to do:
On your own blog, tell us your own personal supernatural account and link it to this post. If you don’t have a blog of your own, feel free to simply leave a comment under this post and mention it elsewhere (Facebook, Twitter, wherever). The honor system is in place here, so I’m trusting you guys not to make something up just to enter. I want to hear your real life ghost stories, unexplained encounters, horrific tales, etc. I understand that not everyone can be so (un)fortunate as to have been involved in such a thing. If you are among this group, feel free to share tales of popular ghost stories from your area, accounts from relatives, legends you heard as a child, unique “real life” ghost stories you’ve seen on Unsolved Mysteries, or anything of that nature.
After posting this to your blog, let me know in the comments section of this post. Provide a link in your comment.
You have 2 weeks to enter (I will stop taking entries at midnight, September 14th). After that, I will provide a post with the names and links all entrants. There will be 2 winners. One winner will be selected by readers between September 15th – September 18th and the other will be selected via random drawing.
The prizes are:
For most popular among readers, you’ll win a signed copy of The Bleeding Room and a rather nifty set of 12 DVDs titled 50 Horror Classics. This collection includes some greats (before their inferior remakes) including Nosferatu, The House on Haunted Hill, Night of the Living Dead, Little Shop of Horrors, and The Last Man on Earth. It is also full of B-movies that would feel at home on Mystery Science Theater (my personal favorites being Dementia 13 and The Last Woman on Earth).
Winner of the random drawing will receive a signed copy of The Bleeding Room.
That’s it folks. Start thinking about that one single experience that has stayed with you and maybe even had you lose a bit of sleep. I expect to see some great entries and, more importantly, that we’ll all have a bit of fun in the process.
