And should you survive finding out which host chooses Billy Beane as his favorite action hero, you will then find yourself joining the hosts on the most terrifying haunts any writer can face.

Speaking of winners. We have several to announce.
First the winners of Kiersten White’s books:
The Paranormalcy winner is Ilima Loomis
The Supernaturally winner is Charlee Vale
Next, the winner of Aprilynne Pike’s book, Wings is Brooklyn Jensen, who commented:
“To get a signed copy of Wings(which i’ve read and loved!) I’d be willing to go skydiving (Im afraid of hieghts) land, then i would drive 13 hours to go see Aprilynne and get her whatever she wants then i would give her all of my siblings (i don’t want them anyway)and finaly i would eat raw chicken. I hope convinced you.”
Who can argue with siblings and raw chicken?
Last of all, the winner of Chris Grabenstein’s The Smokey Coridor, in our Just for Kids Contest.
First, let me just say that you guys are awesome. Every one of your stories was amazing. You all have incredible imaginations. I laughed, I cried, I shivered with fright. Since everyone did such a great job, you all get honorable mentions. I will send signed Farworld posters to all of you.
And the winner of The Smokey Corridor as judged by our esteemed panel, and my 11 year old son, is . . .
