I'm publishing a serial paranormal story in the Scholar and Scribe community. To celebrate and promote it: generous weekly(ish) giveaways.

I took a little break from these contests, and now they're back.

To enter, leave a comment in this post that quotes your favourite line from Hunting Midnight. This can be from any of the parts!

🎫 Bonus chance! 🎫 Post a story quote OR a link to this contest as a Leo Thread for an additional entry. Use the #gosh tag so I can track entries (this will earn you some $GOSH tokens too!)

If you use #scholarandscribe & #huntingmidnight you will also likely get a curation upvote from @leo.scholar (earning you some $LEO tokens). For a full "how to" regarding Threads, read this post. You will only have about 200 characters to work with, so if you're choosing a quote for this bonus entry make it short (it can be different than the entry on this post).
