A Haunting Giveaway

January 25th, 2010 by John Wolfe

This giveaway has closed. Update–April 2, 2010: Congratulations to Lauren of Kentucky and to Paul Melniczek of Lancaster County Pennsylvania. They each won the DVD box set of “A Haunting.” I’d also like to thank everyone else who participated in the drawing! Though the “A Haunting Giveaway” has closed, you can still enter for a chance to win a Nox Arcana, “Transylvania” CD in the current giveaway.

It’s time to once again take the paranormal for a spin in the latest SOS giveaway. In picking up where I left off last September — with the Discovery Channel series, “A Haunting” — I’m giving away two, brand new DVD box sets of A Haunting: the complete third season to two separate winners. In case you’re unfamiliar with the series, “A Haunting” recreates purported real life ghostly encounters in an unnerving documentary style. If you enjoy very spooky, thought-provoking entertainment, then these DVDs should provide you with more than a few restless nights. This third installment in the series takes you on a journey to a haunted English pub; a recently renovated Victorian Mansion with a displeased ghostly inhabitant; an Irish home plagued by a poltergeist; a secret room in a Salt Lake City house where something lurks in the darkness, and much more. In all, there are ten haunting episodes included in this set.

To recap, I’m giving away two, brand new DVD box sets of A Haunting: Season 3 to two separate winners. All guidelines for entering can be found below.

Upon entering, all I ask in return is that you take a few moments to recommend this post, whether it’s via your own blog, Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, Stumble, or Digg account, etc. If you don’t have a blog or an account with a social networking site, then please consider e-mailing the link to friends. I would really appreciate the support.

While it may seem counterproductive for you to recommend a giveaway (that you’re interested in winning) to others, it helps Season of Shadows grow. And, the site’s growth is directly related to creating more giveaways for you to win.

The larger the site’s reach becomes, the greater the potential revenue. This, in turn, creates opportunities for me to host contests with even greater quantities of Halloween and ghostly prizes. In the long run, I think it all evens out — though more people are entering, I’m able to give more things away. Plus, I just love giving cool stuff to my visitors. It’s a lot of fun! :D

Guidelines for Entering

Please, only one entry per household. Duplicate entries from the same IP will be deleted. These giveaways are really based on the honor system, but I do my best to make it as fair as possible for everyone. There’s no catch here, everything is free – including payment of shipping and handling for “A Haunting” – I cover all costs. To be entered, leave a comment below, showing your interest.

Depending upon the volume of entries, comments may only be displayed under this post for a short time. As entries grow, I may remove comments to make it easier for visitors to scroll to the comment box and enter. However, I guarantee all entries will be saved in the order they are received.

When leaving a comment, be sure to include your correct e-mail address and be certain to keep track of your spam or bulk folder after the drawing closes, just in case. Each winner of A Haunting will be contacted through the e-mail address that’s registered with their comment. I will never share addresses, provided by entrants, with any third parties and you’ll never receive unsolicited mail when entering.

This “A Haunting” contest will end at 11:59 PM (Eastern Time) on March 25th, 2010. All legitimate entries will then be assigned a number in the order they were received. Two numbers will be randomly drawn to determine the winners.

Both winners will then be notified, via the email addresses they provided, no later than March 27th. If one, or both don’t respond (with their shipping information) within two weeks, then one (or two) more number(s) will be drawn to determine the new winner(s). Upon receiving their permission, both winners’ names will be featured at the top of this post.

If you would like to see your Halloween or paranormal website or business promoted through SOS and you have some appropriately themed items to give away, please contact me.

    Yahoo–wouldn’t mind winning that. There’s something about the way they do that show and the narrator’s voice that mesmerizes. I’ll be sure and put up a post about your contest. Great idea!

  13. christine Says:

    i think an excellent gift would be a tour at a haunted location or a room for the night at a haunted hotel! i would love to have the gift but only if the videos are closed captioned! i am hearing impaired! thank you and happy hauntings!

  14. John Wolfe Says:


    Those are excellent ideas for giveaways! In fact, I absolutely would love to give big prizes like Halloween or paranormal-themed trips away, in the future, as my budget for contests grows. Thank you for sharing with me that you’re hearing impaired. I will definitely find out if “A Haunting” is closed captioned or not, and will keep that in mind for future giveaways, as I want to make sure everyone who enters will be capable of enjoying the prizes.

    I’ll update this response after checking on closed captioning. Thanks for your message and for your potential entry.

    Update: I was unable to locate any info on closed captioning for A Haunting through Amazon. I’ll keep checking and when I find out for sure, I’ll either leave you in or remove your name from the entry list. Thanks again, Christine.

  15. Pam Morris Says:

    please count me in, too! would love to win (since I’m one of those “I never win anything” folks) will put this on my blog, too–not that my blog is very popular, but you never know! thanks!

    Thanks, Pam, for your entry. And thank you for posting the giveaway on your blog. I really appreciate the support!

    Another great contest. I think I originally found your site through Ghost Droppings. I just signed up for the newsletter and will continue to log on more frequently. Great stuff. Do you have a Facebook or Myspace page as well? Thanks.


  22. John Wolfe Says:

    Thanks for entering, Paul, and for your kind words. I do have a myspace page. It’s myspace.com/seasonofshadows I also have a Facebook page, but don’t usually use it. I’m more into Twitter and You Tube for networking. All the best to you in the giveaway, and thanks again.
