AtoZChallenge 2015: Z is for Zachęcić (encourage)
Yes, we completely cheated with this one. Zachęcić is Polish for ‘encourage’ (at least Google tells us it is, we hope we haven’t made a huge faux pas) and today we’re talking about books we wrote for All Hallows Read.
All Hallows Read is, as its name suggests, an event that takes place over Halloween, and it is a celebration of reading, where folks give a scary story to someone (young, or old) to encourage them to read. We heard about this event, which is supported by Neil Gaiman, three years ago and, as you’ve probably gathered by now if you’ve been joining us during the AtoZ, we’re fans of horror. Thus, we decided to create special books of short, spooky stories that we could give away FREE over Halloween.
Thus, to finish our AtoZ, we have not one, not two, but three FREE books for you, the three sets of stories we have written for All Hallows Read, six creepy stories in all.
