I'll be running this challenge this year, as solittletime is unable to.
Note: You can release all month long, though some of us like to release all or most of our books to the trick or treaters on Halloween night. That is optional though. No prizes for this Challenge -- it's just for fun! Join in at any time.
Rules, mostly the same as last year:
1 - Please DON'T post planned releases; only books that have a release note will count.
2 - ONLY books with an approved word in the title (or author's name) or picture on the cover will count. See list below. If you have questions, please ask before releasing.
3 - Any type of release is okay! (OBCZ, mailing, wild, controlled, etc). Feel free to post catches (of any except controlled releases) too.
4 - All types of books are good - including children's and non-English books. You may use the title of the book, the author's name *OR* the picture. (Please state what the picture is in your post, though!) Plurals are also okay (ie Spirits, Ghosts, Monsters)
5 - Embedded words are okay! (But please tell us what the word is; I am terrible about finding embedded words.)
6 - The Challenge starts October 1st and ends at Midnight, October 31st your time zone.
7 - Dual/Overlapping challenges are okay!! (Note: some words on the list below are also on the Tick Tock Challenge list.)
8 - Please put a link to this Release Challenge in your journal entry or release note.
9 - Please number your releases and post link, title (and author if that if why it fits) like this:
Rainbow Magic Special Edition: Trixie the HALLOWEEN Fairy
I ask that you post both the link and the title (and author if that's what makes the book count) because looking at a BCID number is no fun at all. Looking at the BCID *and* the title of whatever book you released is what makes it interesting. Capitalizing the acceptable word is nice too. Books with just a link and no title won't be counted.
10 - ONLY THOSE LISTED BELOW will count as words or pictures, but if you have a suggestion of a word to add, post here and I'll let you know if we'll allow it.
