Congratulations to Sabrina and Kim, who each won a copy! And thanks to everyone for stopping by!
Happy Halloween! My most favorite of holidays doth approach. The reason it’s my favorite? For one, I have a long childhood history of setting up haunted mazes in my parents’ front yard and scaring the hairgel out of teenagers. For two (what?!) it feels like a more honest celebration of human nature than, say, Christmas.
Christmas is all “good will towards man” and “being nice” or what have you. Halloween shows the ugly nature of man, in the form of corpses and death and candy corn. However, Halloween also celebrates man’s good heart – I mean, what other holiday are you more generous to random strangers? The passing-out of candy is a beautiful thing, even if it does contribute slightly to childhood obesity . . . the most spooooooky of Halloween’s frights!
Anywho, I’m part of Coffin Hop! Follow me and over a hundred authors through the interwebs. The best part? All of them are offering free prizes! Think of them as free candies given door-to-door. So start tricking or treating already and click on the skull!
DEADGIRL GIVEAWAY! (Ends Oct 31)
As part of the festivities, I’m giving away two e-book copies of DEADGIRL, for your e-reader of choice! That’s available to all residents of the Milky Way and Andromeda galaxies. So that’s cool!
To enter, toss in a comment below!
Also, you get extra “entries” if you like my facebook page, Deadgirl’s facebook page, or follow me on twitter. Let me know in the comments below, and you get another entry. You’re putting your name in more than once – like Hunger Games, but without the child slaughter.
Well. Maybe without the child slaughter. We’ll play it by ear.
If you came for some horror, there are a few decently spooky ones in my short story archive. Check out “On Jupiter and Mars” for zombie horror, “Extra-Credit” for something more Goosebumps-y, and Dollhoused for those who like a little fantasy chocolate in their horror peanut butter.
