The Return of the Monster Movie Marathon Giveaway Begins with an Audiobook Giveaway

Okay, folks. let's kick this little shindy off with a giveaway. I wanted to give away something monster related and one of the first things on my bookshelf to jump out at me was this audiobook set of the literary mash-up by Jane Austen and Ben H. Winters, Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters. Perfect.

Here are the details on this little ditty via Amazon:

Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters expands the original text of the beloved Jane Austen novel with all-new scenes of giant lobsters, rampaging octopi, two-headed sea serpents, and other biological monstrosities. As our story opens, the Dashwood sisters are evicted from their childhood home and sent to live on a mysterious island full of savage creatures and dark secrets. While sensible Elinor falls in love with Edward Ferrars, her romantic sister Marianne is courted by both the handsome Willoughby and the hideous man-monster Colonel Brandon. Can the Dashwood sisters triumph over meddlesome matriarchs and unscrupulous rogues to find true love? Or will they fall prey to the tentacles that are forever snapping at their heels? This masterful portrait of Regency England blends Jane Austen’s biting social commentary with ultraviolent depictions of sea monsters biting. It’s survival of the fittest — and only the swiftest swimmers will find true love! 

So, if you'd like to throw your name in the hat for a chance to win, there's really only thing you need to do: spread the word.

You see, over the course of the next three weeks I and fifteen talented guys and gals will be blogging about monsters. Big ones, little ones, cute ones, scary ones. Monsters in movies, on television, and even in books. And I would like people to stop on by, which is why I'd like you to spread the word.

You only have to do it once to get your name entered. If you've got a blog, you could write about the marathon in one of your posts, or simply add a link to this giveaway on your sidebar so your blog readers can find it. Or you could tweet a link to this giveaway on Twitter. Or maybe you could share a link on Facebook or StumbleUpon or Tumblr or some other social media venue. Your call. Pick one and get the word out, then simply fill out the form below with your contact information. I hope that is simple enough for everyone.

And if the audiobook isn't quite your thing, don't worry because there is another giveaway coming in the weeks ahead--maybe two more--that you can check out and enter. All of the giveaways end on Halloween night, then I'll announce the winners of each giveaway on November 1st. This giveaway is open worldwide.

Until then, keep checking back here to get your monster fix. On tap for tomorrow: Trollhunter.
