The Near Witch Giveaway of Witchy Epicness!!!

It’s almost Halloween!!

And in my world, that means it’s time for donning disguises, making mischief, and trick or treating around the interwebs. But since I don’t like to reveal my tricks, let’s focus on the TREATS.

In honor of this witchily wonderful holiday, I’m having a little giveaway 🙂

How does it work?

The giveaway will run from now (Monday, October 24th) until 9PM on Monday, October 31st <–AKA HALLOWEEN.

ONE winner will receive a signed copy of THE NEAR WITCH!

ONE winner will receive a DVD of Hocus Pocus!

ONE winner will receive an ARC of A TOUCH MORBID by Leah Clifford!

ONE winner will receive a query critique or critique of their first 10 pages!

And ONE winner will receive CANDY!

All you have to do is fill out this handy little form, spread the word, and then go get high on sugar.

NOTE: You can also get a point for leaving a comment! Simply put that in the “Other” box!

NOTE: As usual, it’s international 🙂


I had the pleasure of visiting some amazing friends this weekend in the DC area, and they took me to a Renaissance Fair! It was pretty epic, but even MORE epic was this:

    I can never resist your giveaways. They always make me happy! Hocus Pocus?! CANDY?! Oh… um… the book related things are cool, too. Tee-hee!

  6. Daisy says:

    Thank you so much for the amazing giveaway! And Narwhals FTW! 🙂

  7. Cathy says:

    Yeah, nothing can compete with Narwhal. Unless maybe it’s a Narwhal with super powers. And I would’ve signed up to win Hocus Pocus (because it’s AWESOME) but I can’t play movies on the Tv due to some weird anti-DVD spell. Which is why I need one of the witch books, thank you.

  8. Carol Laux says:

    Also, just the other day I was watching this Doctor talk show on tv and they actually said that hugs are good for your health! And I immediately thought of you! Who knew, huh? 😀

    I love the ‘FREE HUGS’ video!!! I’ve seen this before in other places but never hugs given by a ‘witch'(?) AWESOME!!!

    If you go out on Halloween as a Narwhal…most definitely post pictures…:> Incidentally, we just added a book about Narwhals to our children’s section of the library and I immediately thought of you!!!

    Have a fun & spooky Halloween, everyone! Thanks for the great giveaway opportunity, Victoria!


  32. Great giveaway! Thanks and have a fun Halloween!

  33. Travis says:

    Thanks for the contest, V! Halloween is my favorite.

  34. Denise Z says:

    Well I am jumping up and down and crossing everything that will cross and hoping the gods of random pick me LOL I would absolutely love to have a signed copy of The Near Witch – how awesome would that be huh! Let alone all the other treats, I better go drink some coffee to calm me down now – see how bad it is LOL thank you for the fun and smiles this morning.

  35. Mindy M says:

    This giveaway is awesome!! Congrats on the success of your book.

  36. Megan Conway says:

    Awesome giveaway. I recently saw THE NEAR WITCH at my local Wal-Mart and was tempted to buy it, but sadly didn’t have my wallet with me and haven’t been into town since then. It would be wonderful if I won, especially since it’s a signed copy. And candy? That would be weird to get in the mail 🙂 What I really love is the 10 page critique! I just finished a novel of my own and would love to get it critiqued by you, or any other author for that matter.
    Oh! And I chose a cupcake!
    Thanks for the giveaway,
    – Megan
