Howloween Blog Hop



Well today is the beginning of the Howloween Blog Hop. and I am supposed to write something Halloween inspired. The sad thing is in my part of Australia we don't really celebrate Halloween. So I am just gonna ramble for a bit.

where you will find other great participants to go trick or treating with.
270+ Authors

What does Halloween mean for me, I get to indulge in my love of bats. Okay so maybe I am a little off my rocker because I joined a blog hop for something I never participate in... Though I was just in America. Albuquerque, New Mexico to be exact for GRL and while there I went to a store with Brandi and Erika and I was just amazed by all the Halloween decorations everywhere... the spiders I could live without but I did really enjoy the bats.

Why is it when this time of year rolls around I want to write a shit-load of paranormal stories... I want to immerse myself in the spirit of the day/night etc. This is the time of year that the paranormal and the supernatural all come out to play and have a good time among the land of the living human beings. I always wonder just how thin the veil between the undead and the living truly is at this time of year... mind you I am a 'big ol' fraidy cat' about the scary side of life.

My Give-away
I suppose I should talk about my prize for this blog hop... The truth is I can't remember what I said I would give away (Bad NJ). So instead I will now say I will give away a free ebook from my backlist and a $15 gift certificate to Bookstrand or Amazon... So to be in the chance to win this prize please leave a comment with your contact information... and for a chance to be in the draw twice please feel free to join my blog as a follower or remind me that you are already a follower. I will then choose my winner at the end of the hop.

Good luck to all who participate.

    1. I think that meeting the readers as well as other authors was the best part of GRL - I made some wonderful friends I know I will keep in touch with for many years to come... if you do make it next year make sure you look me up (GRL 2013 is in Atlanta)
