Free Book Friday the Thirteenth Giveaway: Lenore Noogies

I have a fun giveaway today in honor of Friday the Thirteenth:

I've never been much for graphic novels. Reading from side to side and up and down just gives me a headache. I like my reading to be linear and not all over the place.

But I have to admit, the graphics in this sucked me into the story. Plus there's not a lot of dialogue to keep me bouncing around, the graphics tell the story all on their own and it's great. A little twisted but fun for those of us who are a little twisted and off the line by a few inches...or a couple miles. :-)

Here's the book blurb:

Take a trip into the dark, surreal world of a little dead girl with a knack for (often) unintentional mayhem in this remastered, gothic classic, newly-coloured and presented in glorious hardcover!

Lenore might only be small, but her talent for mischief — and occasional wanton destruction — is anything but. Featuring stories about limbless cannibals, clock monsters, cursed vampire dolls, taxidermied friends, an obsessed would-be lover and more fuzzy animal mutilations than should be legal, never has the term ‘something for everyone’ seemed more sinister and bizarre.

A massive cult hit on both sides of the Atlantic, Lenore is one of the funniest, darkest, cutest, creepiest characters on the marketplace today.

Hi Roxanne,
You had me at cursed vampire dolls.
I'm not superstitious, but I love hearing about superstitions-they're so entertaining. Actually Friday the 13th, has always been my lucky day! (knocking on wood) (LOL) The knocking on wood part was my idea of a joke. I've had alot of wonderful events that have taken place on a Friday the 13th. So to answer your question, there's nothing I avoid.

Fear of the number 13 is called

jeanette8042 said...

I'm not superstitious but it si interesting to see some people acting cautious and strange today!

Roxanne Rhoads said...

You know I never had a problem with the number 13 or Friday 13th until my husband and I changed our wedding date from the Sept 6 to Sept 13.

Once we changed our date everything started going wrong-my cat died, I had to get a tooth pulled, I had to have surgery, things kept breaking and going wrong...and before that everything had been on track and going good.

We couldn't figure out what was going on. The only conclusion we came to was switching the date.(I know silly superstitious thoughts but...)

Our marriage has continually been plagued with such 'curses' from time to time and we often joke we are going to get divorced and remarry on the 6th like we were supposed to. Maybe that will break the bad luck.

Amanda said...

Friday the 13th is just another day to me. But I do think bad luck in general happens when things are out of balance.

Even if I'm not superstitious, Friday the 13th can still be fun in a spooky kind of way! :-D

I did a RT of your post on twitter. (@amandamakepeace)

I'm not a superstitious person, and I don't think that on the 13th bad things will happen!

Linda Henderson said...

I've never been concerned with whether or not it's Friday the 13th. I know some people get so wrapped up in worrying about it they cause things to happen. I know it's already there but it is triskaidekaphobia.

I have no fear of the number 13. Today is my b-day, so it falls on a Friday and I'm going to make it the best day ever. And I always play the number 13 on lotteries. Yep, no fear for me. :-)

Thanks for this contest. It looks like a great book and I can't wait to read it!

I'm superstitious but born on the 13th day so I don't have triskaidekaphobia.


Jane said...

I am superstitious, but none of them have are related to the number 13. 13 is neither an unlucky or lucky number for me.

I'm a bit skittish about Friday the 13th ever since I got in a car accident on that day. I don't avoid going out or driving on those days but I always feel a bit uneasy...
