As I’ve mentioned I read ‘scary’ or ‘horror’ books for the month of October. This is done for several reasons one is that it keeps me from falling into a ‘reading’ rut if I make myself try a different genre a couple of times a year another is it feeds my ‘little girl’ excitement of approaching events.
In Northern Michigan, October is sort of psycho in the weather department. Cold, warm, pretty colored trees, endless cloudy days, rain, lumpy rain, and snow so by spending the month preparing for a ‘fun’ holiday it keeps me from overeating and drinking too much wine or hard cider. At least once during the month, I spend an evening wrapped in my new fuzzy blanket, drinking hot cocoa, and watching Hocus Pocus and Sleepy Hollow.
As a kick-off to the release of my Halloween novella, Knock Knock, I’m going to give away a copy of each of my two of my favorite Halloween movies – Sleepy Hollow with Johnny Depp and Hocus Pocus with Bette Midler (one movie per winner).
Leave me a comment telling me about your favorite October activity, scary book or movie and I’ll randomly pick a winner. I’ll e-mail the winner’s on Wednesday for your addy’s.
