It occurs to me that my last two posts have been about book sales, so let’s talk about something that everyone cares about, Halloween!
Who doesn’t love Halloween? Scary stories, lots of spooky looking treats and dressing up as… well… anybody or anything you like!
It’s a time to forget about trying to be cool and just put on your unicorn onesie and watch Horror movies with your friends!
Pull up some extra snacks and tell your own stories and try to scare the bejeezus out of each other. What’s not to love?
Did you know that in England, black cats are considered lucky? Yeah that thing about walking across you path. If you’re English, that’s extra special good luck!
So who are your favorite Horror novel authors? Everybody loves Stephen King of course, and his son Joe Hill has written some very original stuff, but there are some newer authors on the ‘up and coming’ list who are really worth reading! Among those are Tim Curran, Graeme Reynolds and Brian Keene. If you haven’t read these guys yet, get them onto your Halloween reading list, quick!
What about female Horror authors? We’ve all heard of Daphne Du Maurier and Shirley Jackson, but who among the newer authors should we be adding to our reading list? This is something I’m looking into so please leave your suggestions in the comments!
It seems the jack-o-lantern carving gets more creative every year and Halloween decorations have been having a resurgence. Halloween is becoming more fun than Christmas!
You didn’t think you were going to get away without a plug did you? 😉
Seriously, give it a try. You’ll be glad you did!
Have a wonderful Halloween everyone, and stay safe!
And don’t forget to leave your suggestions for spooky reads!
