Treat everyday as a new adventure

Trick or Treat!

I love Halloween. The costumes. The decorations. The wind. The smells. The trick or treating. 🙂 And THE CANDY!

I also love the scary stories.

Give me anything by Stephen King and you’ll lose me for hours, not to mention that I’ll keep you up all night listening for things that go bump in the night. 🙂

My house is haunted so there are plenty of noises.

Anyway, since this is the last day of the month and Halloween, and I wanted to share a few books for your enjoyment.

My favorite by Stephen King is “Cell”

But there are plenty of books by new and indie authors that will keep you up at night! Check out the slide show below.

And a paragraph from one of my short stories that will be in my collection, “Prompted by a Photo”,

“Tag You’re It!” 

   With arms wrapped around each other, the giggling girls wave goodbye to the old witch and walk along the path towards town. They see the old man in tattered clothes step out from behind the rotting oak tree. His once black fedora, now dingy and gray, sets cockeyed on his balding head. Deep lines etch his face and his scraggly white beard almost reaches his belt. Curious the girls follow him as he moves into the clearing, the dead leaves crackling under their feet. He turns and lifts a gnarled finger to his cracked, dry lips and in a raspy voice he whispers, “What took you so long? Did you talk to her?”

***

Still a ways to go and I will be doing some revising, but hopefully I will have the book out before the end of the year!

Now, Go put on your costume and get out there, Trick or Treating, whichever is your pleasure. 🙂

See you soon and till then; HUGS!
