All Hallow’s Grim 2011 Giveaway

This giveaway wasnt supposed to begin until Oct 12th, the night before All Hallow’s Grim. Then someone published his party post early... I found it so gripping that I had to say, schedule be damned! You see, I have never been good at keeping a deliciously creepy tale to myself. I’m weak *sigh* so here I am sharing Cogent Ascending’s “The Tattie Bogal.”

Now to the 2011 All Hallow’s Grim Blog Party giveaway… this year (I know there haven’t been any other years, but be a darling and pretend that this celebration has been going on for 1013 years, alright?) This year Pagan Culture is giving away three prizes for All Hallow’s Grim:

1st Prize – $31.13 to purchase goods or services
from any All Hallow’s Grim Partier
who owns a shop or sales stuff online,
and follows Pagan Culture through GFC.
If you are a Wicked Darling Seller and Partier,
please retitle the All Hallow’s Grim button
you must be displaying on your sidebar. It needs to read:
 “Use Your 2011 All Hallows Grim Coin at My Shop”
You should also comment, on this post, stating the same.

2nd Prize Ghosts CD and Ghosthunting Workshop from Paradise Music

 3rd Prize We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson, 
The Red of His Shadow by Mayra Montero 
and an autographed copy of Sandman Slim by Richard Kadrey 
I know what you are thinking, my luvs, (Actually, I don’t really know, but if you can pretend the All Hallow’s Grim Blog Party has been around for 1013 years, I don’t see what can keep me from imagining that I can read your minds; fair is fair, you know?) So… you are silently asking yourselves, What about if I like a shop that is not part of the Party? Can I use my All Hallow's Grim coin there? Hm, I walked for over an hour, I need to drink more water today… my goodness, Magaly’s Piano Man is sooo hot!

Okay, so the last few words sounded a lot like they might have leaked out of my head, but you have to admit my lover looks yummy *stares at her Piano Man’s picture and ambles dreamily into another thinking tangent…*

What was I saying again? Oh yes, how can you use your All Hallow’s Grim Coin at a shop that is not part of the party? Well, I adore you and all, but you can’t use the $31.13 at a non-partying shop. However, you could speak to the shop owner and see if they want to join the party before Oct 12th at 10:13 PM.

    Hadn't realised I wasn't logged as a follower so am now :D  and have tried to add on facebook(don't know if it's worked yet though :D (such a technophobe ha!) .
    Have prepped a post for 13th, so will see you then :D XXX

  3. MagicLoveCrow10/07/2011

    Magaly, I have to admit, I am kind of confused? LOL! Of course I want to win everything, but I have to look through your post again! I will be back ;o)

  4. MagicLoveCrow10/07/2011

    Ok, I have made comments on all those posts before, so I will be back, to copy and paste then on here, right? I hope I am doing this right!

  5. Me and my over-guidance fever. There is only one party post so far, and it's the one posted by Cogent Ascending. The posts were not supposed to begin until Oct 12th, but Cogent got me all hooked on his tale and now the even is open early ;-) 

    So... as of right now, the only available party post is Cogent's. I'll have one in couple of days... and then another... and another...  

  6. Craftymoose10/07/2011

    Glad I saw the party has started! I retitled the button on my sidebar to read "Use Your 2011 All Hallow’s Grim Coin at My Shop".  I'll have my post up soon!

  7. Craftymoose10/07/2011

    Visited Paradise Music and I love so much of it! I was immediately drawn to "Power Animals" in the Native American Series. I have always felt a connection to Native Americans-although I have no NA blood, I've always felt I may have been one in a previous time.

  8. Craftymoose10/07/2011

    I'm already a follower!

  9. Craftymoose10/07/2011

  17. Dixienites10/09/2011

    I left a comment on:  INTO THE DARKNESS

    "What trickles into your brain when you visualize:fear, desperation, terror…?

    the curtain, I am struggling to breathe, overcome with a sense of
    horror and dread.  My feet are leaden, but with every fibre of my being,
    I will bade them to go on.  I must pull back the curtain and enter that
    stale, pitiless place... It's the only way to rid myself of the vile,
    limp creatures draped from my arms.  I must do this alone..."

  18. I read CraftyMoose and commented... "Oh, I love it! So adorable at first glance and then downright eerie when looked deeply into."

  19. Mina Crump10/09/2011

    I updated my party button with this heading..."Use Your 2011 All Hallow’s Grim Coin at My Shop"

  54. My wicked love, I just left Shelle's blog - "Oh Shelle, what a delicious story! I have heard so many tales of small children who communicate with "imaginary friends" and I have always thought they were seeing spirits. Little ones are so much closer to the other side than adults. Oh, I have chills!"

  55. Just came from Linda's blog - Commented, "Oh my gods, I would die of natural causes if I saw something like that. And his couldn't get any better than that. Very creepy and very well written, my dear friend!"

  56. Craftymoose10/14/2011


    Very cool story, yet kinda scary to me!

  57. Craftymoose10/14/2011


    Thanks for sharing this beautiful, comforting story!

  58. Craftymoose10/14/2011

    The Seventh Child - “Oh Polly, this

  60. Mina Crump10/15/2011

    Wondering the Wooded Viel -
    “Wonderfully done! Beautifully written and a gruesome ending. My
    favorite kind!”

  61. Mina Crump10/15/2011

    Visited Pieces of Fate - "That is horrible for the poor kitty! What a frightening experience this was. It would have scared me to death!"

  62. Mina Crump10/15/2011

    Danni's blog - "Wonderful art, Danni. Wasn't The Crow awesome? True love in the highest sense. And such a tragedy for Brandon Lee. Hugs, Sweetie."

    Maybe I should stop commenting my comments now. I feel like a stalker. ;-)

  63. MagicLoveCrow10/15/2011

    This is such a beautiful and comforting story! Thanks so much for sharing it! When I moved into our new house 10 years ago, my cat that passed on, visited me regularly. But, I new I was keeping him here. I finally told him to go and that I loved him. I haven't seen him since. So happy I came by your blog!
