Halloween for Writers and Readers
Let’s face it, Halloween has gone way beyond horror and scary, though there’s still a lot of that. I mean look around. How many Star Wars characters do you see? Princesses? Disney characters, not to mention people using their own imaginations to come up with get-ups like the forest floor and egg beater (I leave the last to your imagination).
Seriously. So, I thought for this post I’d thought I’d spread the net wide.
How so? Well, how about a site with Halloween prompts for the Writers out there?

In West Hollywood CA? Check out the annual Halloween Carnaval.
Maybe you just want to kick back and read a bit. Grab a good book and hunker down with a bowl of popcorn or candy corn at your side. If that’s the case check out a couple of authors that might be right up your alley.
Mary Pax, aka, M Pax in the Sci Fi book universe, has a great steampunk series out, The Rifters. The first one is permanently free on Amazon. She’s an excellent writer and the series sucks you in. There’s a book two, The Initiate and a book three to release soon. Watch here for info on that. I'll have an interview and a heads up. And go ghost town hunting with her.
Another great writer to consider for this scary/fun season is Robbie Cox and his book Reaping The Harvest. Gargoyles, fun and lots of action.
There also Michael Eging’s Annwyn’s Blood for a sort of a horror fantasy.
Or maybe you’re going to spend some time with kids and want to read with them or maybe give them a few pages to color - then check out reading with kids’ offerings.
