Second Giveaway Opportunity - Haunted Hikes of New Hampshire

The other day, I received an email from the author of the book entitled, Haunted Hikes of New Hampshire. I know the book well and received Marianne O’Connor’s email with excitement. She told me that she followed this blog as well as the LFAHNH Facebook page and noticed that I had a giveaway contest going on. She was very kind and donated five autographed copies of her book to be part of my next giveaway, to some lucky readers of Live Free and Hike New Hampshire.

Five copies up for grabs!

The book is great and Jill and I have both read it. Marianne describes a number of hikes, all in New Hampshire, that have odd and unusual circumstances surrounding their history. At one time or another, these hikes have been reported by some to be, yup, you guessed it, HAUNTED! Marianne has hiked all of them, describes the trip route in detail and has even included pictures and maps. I particularly like the Waternomee Bomber (my trip report of this crash site published on Hike New England) story and the great detail she includes. It’s a great read!

I've had my copy for two years, tucked in my hiking library!

So how do you get your autographed copy? I’m going to give everyone who reads this blog and opportunity to put their name in the hat FIVE times!

1st Entry – Comment on this post as to why you want this book.

2nd Entry – Share this post link and giveaway opportunity on your Facebook page. Leave a second comment letting me know you did this.

3rd Entry – Share this post link and giveaway opportunity on your Twitter page and be sure to include @LiveFreeAndHike so I don’t miss it. Leave a third comment letting me know you did this too.

4th and 5th Entry – This one is worth two entries! If you have a blog, share this giveaway opportunity on your blog by spreading the word in a post. Leave a fourth and final comment letting me know you blogged about it with a link back to your blog.

So, you have up to five entries to win this contest…and there are five books available so those are pretty good odds! Now, even though you can be picked five times, you can only win one book. So, if you’re picked twice, the second does not count. I’m going to close the comments on May 31st at midnight and will choose winners using random.org soon after. As most of you know, I have a little one due on June 1st, so you’ll have to bear with me if it takes me a few days to pick the winners. I'll make a follow up post with the winners after they are picked and you'll need to email me your addresses so I can get you your copy. Good luck everyone and thanks to Marianne for giving away copies of this great book to our Live Free and Hike New Hampshire community.

Addendum: All, I messed up the close date. I didn't want this to end on June 29th, but instead on May 29th. Since this is only in a couple days, I'll keep this giveaway open until May 31st. Sorry for any confusion I may have caused. Get those entries in sooner than later!

  3. Karl,

    I don't have this book but would love to own it. I love New Hampshire, ghost stories and WW2 history. Since this book combines all three I would love to have it in my library.

  5. Okay, I'd like this book because I love haunted trail books. We have a few for Tennessee. One day we will make it up to NH and that would be a great resource. :P

  6. Entry 1. Hi Karl, The reason I would like to have this book is to read up more on my home of Vt's sister state. My goal in this life is to explore the highest peaks in New England. I have yet to trek in the wilds of NH but an upcoming Presi-Traverse in June will introduce me to your beautiful state. In September, I am thru-hiking the Long Trail so then Vermont's highest will be completed. Where to next? Why NH of course. I would love to check out these haunted hikes during my adventures in your neighborhood. May this book be my guide.

  20. Hi Steven,

    Yes, I have pulled winners for this. I did list them on my FB page but my wife's water broke before I was able to post an entry! Needless to say, I've been busy with a newborn. I'll be posting them here soon.
