Mothballoween Giveaway Contest!


As I mentioned in the most recent podcast episode, I’m holding a contest for all of our listeners. Three lucky participants will be getting Mothball Prophecies merchandise. I have t-shirts, hoodies, buttons, stickers – all sorts of stuff!

The rules are simple:

1. You submit a weird, creepy, or paranormal story to me at The story can be an original creation, a tale you heard growing up, or a personal experience (or a “friend’s” experience, I won’t judge). And yes, you retain all rights to your submissions. Entries must be received by October 20th. 
2. I will read the entries during a special October 31st episode of The Mothball Prophecies, complete with sound effects and everything!
3. Participants will be entered into a random name picking app to choose three winners, which will be announced on November 1st.

It’s that simple.

We may not be able to go out trick or treating, but we can experience spooky stories right here!

The Treat: Having your story read for our entire audience and getting a chance to win a prize!

The Trick: There really isn’t one. I mean, I could do something like read an Ibsen play or a Restoration Comedy aloud for five hours, but that’s not the kind of torture anyone enjoys.

So have fun and send your entries to:
