There are several ways you can win:
1). Starting Aug 1st Zombie Makeovers will be reduced to $13.13 for anybody who wants to enter for a chance to become one of our four cookies. You will receive your zombie makeover in the form of a jpg which you can use any way you like. You will also become 'Officially Infected', poste...d at our various sites and given an infection # you can use in the future to order your zombie image on any number of products we offer and of course you're automatically entered to become one of our cookies, ordered from all over North America for Halloween events like parties, zombie walks, haunted attractions and movie premieres.
2). You can win a zombie makeover by joining our Facebook Group 'Zombie Cookies', inviting your friends to the group and then posting 'Officially Infected' on the group wall. This will automatically enter you for a chance to win our free, weekly zombie makeovers, but hurry, there is less than 10 spots available for this promotion as it ends in the last week of September.
3). Simply by joining the Facebook Group 'Zombie Cookies' you have a chance to win because we will be giving away 13 random chances to become one of our four Zombie Cookies. If you are chosen (simply for being in the group) we will ask you to send us the photo we require and we will narrow it down, week by week until we have our final winner.
4). If you already became a zombie between November 1st 2009 and Oct 1st 2010 you are already in the running (but we all hate running zombies, don't we?) so let's just say, all of you are in the stumbling...
All 4 winners will receive a dozen cookies and an 'Officially Infected' T-shirt as a thank you for letting us use their image on our cookies. You will remain forever, a creepy selection for the Halloween celebrations in years to come and you will of course receive delicious immortality and fame (who could ask for anything more?)
If you have any more questions, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you don't know where to begin, I suggest you start by getting your rear end into the Facebook group 'Zombie Cookies'
and hope somebody finds you tasty enough to devour.

Many years ago, I took on the arduous task of editor for a 'For the Luv' horror ezine called The Murder Hole. There was no monetary gratification for myself, for the woman who hosted the website, or for any of the contributors. Yet month after month I was overwhelmed with submissions and I still managed to put forth issues highlighting some of the best dark fiction out there. From well-established writers to semi-established writers working their way to the top, to newbies, I've watched over the years as many of the authors I published moved on to become award-winning novelists, mass-market novelists, even publishers and editors. It's kind of like watching your babies growing up to be successful in doing what they love and do best: writing.
That being said, I completely understand what Steven N. Marshall puts into his ezine each and every month. It takes a lot of dedication. It takes a lot of hard work. It requires enthusiasm and unconstrained loyalty to his chosen path, even in the face of adversity; perseverance overcoming animosity. And Steve manages to pull it off, putting out a new issue every month with style and flair, overwhelmingly denoting the true reasons he continues.
It's all about 'for the love of.'
The authors published by SNM every month demonstrate that same love and dedication. Reading the stories in this anthology, you can't help but see the love these writers have for their craft of writing. Their best efforts shine through brilliantly in every story, adding new twists to old plots, bending rules, breaking out of the proverbial 'box', showing the readers that not only do they love to write, but they write for a simple reason: They want to entertain you, the reader.
This yearly crowning achievement published by SNM is a work of love, devotion and commitment by the authors and editors for those who enjoy and appreciate the efforts put forth by all involved. It is an extraordinary accomplishment, packed with compelling horror and dark fiction that will keep you turning the pages long after you should have turned the lights out and gone to bed.
I was truly honored when Steve had approached me about doing the introduction for this anthology. The anthologies he puts out prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that the writing and creating of stories and the genuine objective to entertain isn't all about money. It's about literary achievement in the horror community and becoming known. It doesn't happen overnight!
The editors know this.
The contributors know this.
Now the readers know this.
It's all about telling a story.
And, most importantly
It's all about 'for the love of.'
I was very impressed by this anthology. The consistency of quality writing, they way that each story stands apart from one another, the literary prose, the haunting residual in the mind, makes this a perfect masterpiece of fiction. It is comprised of the Stories of the Month for a year and a half, over careful consideration and selection from a top-rated magazine that publishes cerebral, psychological horror; horror that isn't afraid to cross taboo thresholds, yet suggest something so menacing that the reader is grateful its kept offstage. Let these brave pioneers of the next Poe and Lovecraft generation whisper their dark secrets into your soul and haunt you in the most eerie, personal way: through the power of suggestion and the art of horrific eloquence. My favorite type of reading!
