I would love to win and read all these.


Cindy Smith December 8, 2012 at 7:48 AM

I’ve read Winterland, so Iexpect the others are just as good!

Sweet! I love signed books!

Wait. I’m assuming YOU’RE signing them, right? 😉


Lori Stanley Roeleveld December 8, 2012 at 7:59 AM

I absolutely want your books!


Jim Hamlett December 8, 2012 at 8:43 AM

Consider my hat in the ring, Mike. Many thanks.


Hannah Roeleveld December 8, 2012 at 9:12 AM

Loved The Telling! Been hoping to get the rest! Look quite creepy and what’s better than a creepy book?


Terrence Williams December 8, 2012 at 9:12 AM

I just recently heard of you and have not yet read any of your Books. However, I have thoroughly enjoyed your articles concerning the merits of “Christian Horror.” God Bless and have a very Merry Christmas!

“Horrified Holiday Giveaway” — only you, Mike. Only you.

Pick Me! :)

I’m a little scared to win this!

*waves hands* Pick me! :)

I loved The Telling. I apparently hid it right after reading it because I can’t find it now. I plan to write a five stare review if I could just find it. I can’t remember the name of the policeman I fell in love with. Oh please please please write a spin off series about that policeman, not the rude one, the verbose one. I will buy any book you put him in.


John K. Patterson December 8, 2012 at 10:40 AM

Well this certainly looks like it is worth a try. Sure, I’ll throw my name in the hat!


Drake Anderson December 8, 2012 at 10:57 AM

Great contest Mike. Your books are amazing.

Too cool! Thanks!!

I’ve been reading here and commenting for a long time now. Got and read THE RESURRECTION and was creeped out (yes!). I’d like to read the collection to get a deeper look at your short work. (I also think you should go through your essays and collect the 20 most controversial (definition: provoked the greatest number of snaky, nasty and downright mean comments) and publish them under a “B Horror Movie” cover with the title PASTOR PLAYS DEVIL’S ADVOCATE! or something like that…now THAT would be fun! )

Oooooohhhh, this sounds awesome!


Kaitlin E. December 8, 2012 at 7:21 PM

It would be so incredible to win these books, thank you so much for the opportunity!
The cover art looks fantastic and I’ve been hoping for a good read lately, fingers crossed :)

What a great thing to do for the fans and thank you for embracing a genre that appeals to many Christians!


Jason Haenning December 9, 2012 at 4:05 AM

Yes, Mike – please include me as well!

Thanks again for all the insight and hard work you put into your blog… I love it!

Allright, here’s my shot. I am not a long term poster here, but a lurker. I check your site frequently (possibly more than I should) for updates. I also enjoy your post immensely and I find them insightful. This is not an arse kissing post, but I sure as heck would love to own one of your books. Or two. Or four. Either way count me in, and even if I don’t win, I am gonna order the books for my library ( I work there :D) so everyone can read them!


Jenni Noordhoek December 9, 2012 at 8:15 PM

I’d love to win – I’ll give away the ones I already have & keep the rest! :)


Rhona Mabanta December 10, 2012 at 8:37 AM

I am so fond of reading novels, especially when it is written by Christians. I really love the concepts of your books. And yes, I would love to win one (maybe all four) of your books. Please and Thank you! Godbless.
