Poe 'n Raven Giveaway


In December while I was Christmas shopping, I found this miniature theme box (3" x 3" x 2") that is just jam-packed with macabre Poe fun! There's a teeny-tiny booklet containing the full text of "The Raven." And even better, there's a small black plastic Raven who croaks Nevermore against a background of creepy-sounding gothic bells when you push the button on his base. Too cool!

So, once upon a midnight dreary, here are the rules for entering:

1. You must be an official Follower to enter. Old, new or just signed up in order to enter the draw, it's all good. And it doesn't matter where you're from in the world, I'll mail the package anywhere!

2. In addition to being a Follower, you must leave a comment on this post. If you leave a comment but don't want to be entered, just say so -- it's okay!

3. Only one entry per person please.

4. Entries will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. (Mountain Standard Time) on Thursday, January 24, 2013.

5. The winner will be chosen by a random draw made on Friday, January 25 and the results posted here on Saturday, January 26.

Merely this and nothing more -- good luck, everyone!

What do you mean 11:59 Mountain Standard time? If you are going to strict like a high school Math teacher, Debra, I think you should give all the times - and don't forget the 1/2 hour difference in Newfoundland!! Bwa ha ha

The Raven is one of my favorite poems of all times. The mathematical perfection of the syllables in each line makes it a work of art. I read a novel once entirely based around this poem... that's how I found out about it.

Sweet! I've always been a Poe fan and I've even visited the home where he lived in Philadelphia, where he wrote the "Tell-Tale Heart". It is also rumored that the basement in the home resembles the description that he used in "The Black Cat", and I can attest to that. It is a little creepy there.

What a very cool theme box. I guess by commenting I'm making an entry, aren't I? So what happens if there's two of us? THEN can we leave 2 comments? Will we have to fight to the death to decide who gets it?

(Kidding... I hope)
