Rules, mostly the same as last year:
1 - Any type of release is ok! (OBCZ, mailing, wild, controlled, etc)
2 - 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 ok (ie Spirits, Ghosts, Monsters)
3 - Embedded words are ok! (But please tell us what the word is, I am terrible about finding embedded words.)
4 - The Challenge starts October 1st and ends at Midnight, October 31st your time zone.
5 - Dual/Overlapping challenges are ok!!
6 - Please DON'T post planned releases, only releases that you have actually done.
7 - Please put a link to the Release Challenge in your journal entry or release note.

If you have questions about words/pictures not on this list, please post your questions here. I may add them to the list. I don't plan any prizes again this year, just a handy place to post your Halloween releases. I know I'll have some as this will be the 5th or 6th year I've given out books along with candy to the trick or treaters. It's lots of fun. And in my experience, the kids love it. Will anyone join me?
