Halloween fun…

It’s Halloween! I know this year has been a challenge, but let’s eat a little, well, maybe a lot of candy and drink hot chocolate. Don’t forget to carve that pumpkin and put it outside to ward off the spooks. Spooks? Yes, spooks.

Tonight I’ll be dressed as Princess Lollipop and will be participating in our annual Trunk or Treat at the church. It’s an amazingly fun time to let your hair down and just enjoy life. And to be silly.

In honor of the day, let’s get a little spooky… Have you ever walked through a graveyard at night? Or went to the old covered bridge to call out to the spooks that live inside? Maybe you’ve driven to the old train trestle and listened for the headless conductor. Yes, I’ve done all of these things. It’s that tingle that runs up your spine. The rush of adrenaline as every sound sets your spook-o-meter off. Sometimes you just have to give in to the child inside and go to the unknown.

And let’s not forget the ghosts that roam free on this night. Say hello to a few while you’re out and about. When the bump in the night begins to take form, just hold your breath and cover your head.

It’s just after midnight and you hear a sound. Is it the dog or is it something else? The door squeaks, the floor creaks, and the hair on the back of your neck rise. Don’t turn out the light…

Corny… Maybe… True… Most definitely.

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…

Pumpkin Pie Spice and everything nice…

It’s Halloween and I love it. I don’t get into all the scary stuff, but I do love to dress up. Last year I was Noah in the Ark. What will I be this year? Hummmmm…… I have several ideas but no reveal until tonight at Church. We’re having our annual Truck or Treat and I always go all out with my costumes for the kids. I’m a big kid at heart so why not show it to the world. I’ll be posting a picture of me tonight.

As for the Pumpkin Pie Spice, I purchased my first seasonal coffee creamer of the season. It was heavenly this morning as I took the first sip of the creamy concoction. It made my day seem so exciting and mysterious. As the clouds roll in setting up for the rain to come later tonight, I’m working on my second cup of deliciously flavored coffee and thinking about a third. Why not? 

As for everything nice, my book sale is up on most of my sites, but not on Barnes and Noble yet. Hopefully by the end of the week. I’m excited about my upcoming blog post in the Southern Writer’s Magazine Suite T blog which will appear November 18th. Things have moved along pretty quickly with my writing and I’m just riding on this wave of awesomeness. 

Looking into a couple of advertising areas that have been recommended to me. Let me know your thoughts on these two sites: BookBub and Blodads.com. Have any of you used these sites and how did it go? Do you have another recommendation?

Hope all is well on this spookiest day of the year. Happy Halloween and stay safe, but have a marvelous time being someone or something else today.

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…
