This giveaway has closed. Thanks to everyone who entered. I’ll be in touch with the winners very soon.
After taking the summer off from giving away Halloween and ghostly stuff, I’ve been looking forward to getting back into the spirit of sharing some spooky prizes. And with fall and Halloween just around the corner, what better time than the present to give a little creepiness to my awesome visitors? This time around, I’m dipping back into the paranormal pool with the Discovery Channel series “A Haunting.” A Haunting takes viewers on a documentary-style journey into true paranormal encounters of everyday people. Through reenactments and interviews, each story is brought to life, often in the same location where the original ghostly activity took place.
If you haven’t watched the series, don’t let the description fool you. A Haunting is far from presenting campy, watered-down ghost stories. I’ve been around paranormal activity on and off throughout my life (including recent encounters with disembodied voices). And I’ll admit, on more than one occasion, A Haunting has contributed to my performing 2 AM bedroom checks (with lamps and overhead lights blazing). In other words, the show has caused a lot of, “What was that?” “Who’s there?” “Now, I know that was definitely something!”
If you’re into debunking the paranormal, this is one program where you’ll have to sideline the EMF detector; sit back and enjoy the ride. No official ghost hunting takes place during the series. A Haunting is more about weaving an entertaining, spooky tale that will have you second guessing those creeks and groans that ring out from the darkness – you know the sounds that you always blame on the settling of the house.
Onto the prizes — I’m giving away two brand new DVD copies of A Haunting: Seasons 1 and 2 (packaged together) 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 emailing the link to friends or post it on a Halloween or paranormal message board. I would really appreciate the support.

Both winners will then be notified, via the email addresses they provided, no later than September 29th. If one, or both don’t respond (with their shipping information) within a week, 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.
