Happy Halloween!

Happy Great Pumpkin Day, everyone!

Looks like I’ll be running straight from the HERO revision into NaNoWriMo (for which I will be trying to knock out as much of BELOVED as I can), so the blog’s going to stay pretty sparse for a while.

But here are some great things happening today around the intarwebs, so you can start treating yourself early!


* Come Trick or Treat in the Waterworld Mermaid Lagoon! To celebrate our month of ghost stories, the Waterworld Mermaids are giving away a trick or treat bag full of goodies for every reader that includes books, candy, swag and a $25 gift certificate! JUST CLICK HERE.

* Want a sneak peek/listen of the wicked little opening chapter of HERO? Just pop on over to the Once And Future Podcast for their 2012 Halloween special! You can enjoy all new spooktacular tales read by their authors: Alethea Kontis, Amber Benson, Anton Strout, Faith Hunter, Daniel Marks, Jaye Wells, and Yasmine Galenorn. (And if you just want me, since I’m on the Disney-level of spooky, my reading is FIRST, but the whole podcast is well worth the listen!.) JUST CLICK HERE.

* It’s Aletheapalooza over at Book in the Bag — two days ago there was a great double-review for both THE WONDERLAND ALPHABET and the ALPHAOOPS books. Today it’s Writer Wednesday, and there’s a really long and really fun interview with MOI. CLICK ON OVER AND CHECK THEM OUT!

* If you’re interested in buddying up for NaNoWriMo, here’s my profile link. I always attempt Nano every year, and not once have I ever made it to 50,000 words. But I still end up having a VERY productive November. And who knows…one year, I might actually get there!

* And don’t forget — there’s always fun and games to be had over at the AlphaOops: H is for Halloween official website! JUST CLICK HERE!


Be safe tonight, kiddies. If you’re still in the Wrath of Sandy, stay in. (We made it through unscathed.) The Fairy GodBoyfriend and I are going to stay in, order Chinese, watch the Great Pumpkin, the Face Off Finale (I hope Nicole wins!) and Cabin in the Woods.

And no…I won’t be dressing up. I dress up most of the rest of the year. Halloween is the day I can let my hair down. The ghosties will never recognize me without my tiara. 🙂

What are your plans?
