WHAT DOES A HAUNT FEATURE LOOK LIKE???
There are several different ways you can write your haunt feature. It can be a completely fictitious backstory or a true account of how your haunt came to be. It can be as short as two paragraphs or it can be a multiple pages. Here are some examples from the 2016 edition (Click the thumbnails to view full page):
WANT TO HAVE YOUR HAUNT FEATURED ON THE BOOK COVER?
We would like to feature a picture on the cover of the book from one of the haunted attractions featured in the book. Therefore, when you submit the above content for review, your submitted photos will automatically be a candidate for the cover. If your haunt photo is chosen to be featured on the cover of the book, you will win ten free books to sell, give away, keep or even throw in the garbage (but please don’t).
WANT TO PURCHASE ADVERTISEMENT IN THE BOOK?
Advertisements are very inexpensive, but VERY LIMITED! They add a great amount of exposure within the book, but you must purchase the space before they’re gone! If you would like to purchase either a half page or full page ad for your haunt, Halloween or horror related business in the upcoming book, please CLICK HERE for more info.
