It’s that time of year again - the 5th Annual Spooktoberfest is here with your hosts from Cover Girls!

We cannot believe it’s been 5 years since we started this whole adventure of Spooktoberfest. And to celebrate, we're taking it back old school. If this seems familiar to you, it’s because we are bringing back the original Spooktoberfest requirements, with a few minor tweaks here and there.

Requirements:

1.) Follow Jax at Bouquet of Books, Dani at Entertaining Interests and Cover Girls if you don’t already. We do follow back, and if we've missed you, please let us know so we can follow your blog.


2.) Your Flash Fiction piece cannot be any longer than 400 words. Sorry… that’s part of the challenge.


3.) You must use the MANDATORY 5 words listed below or any version of it. Please highlight them in a way so we can locate them faster within your post.

Black
Machete
Magic
Skull
Tombstone

4.) Post your Flash Fiction piece any day from Monday Oct 24th thru Friday, Oct. 28th.

5.) You can tweet us, if you'd like, @Covergirlsdj to let us know when you've posted your entry.

6.) Display the Spooktoberfest badge on your blog.


7.) It’s a blog hop, so… hop around to other participating blogs and leave them some awesome comments.

8.) Have fun!


Your flash fiction piece can be scarycomicalromantic, or whatever you choose, just be creative! And, yes, this blogfest is International!!

The winners & runner-ups will be posted on 
HALLOWEEN! That’s right, Monday, Oct. 31st.
