Countdown to Halloween: Loving Halloween with Stacey O’Neale + Giveaway


countdown-with-bob

Loving Halloween with Stacey O’Neale

I love Halloween. It’s my second favorite holiday.

Since I was a kid, I’ve always been intrigued by the history of Halloween in this country and beyond. Because of this fascination, I spend a lot of time watching the History channel during the month of October. They always show different specials about the history of the day, and other fun things like witches, pumpkins, and costumes. I guess you could say it’s become a tradition.

Another is that I watch Hocus Pocus every year. It’s my all-time favorite Halloween movie. I’ve been known to quote the movie from time to time. Bette Midler has so many quotable lines, and I think it’s one of her best performances. The other two witches are great, but she really steals the show. It’s fantastic. I never get tired of it. And now that my daughter is nine, she watches it with me.

I also enjoy decorating. My house is cluttered with orange and black of everything. I have spiders, pumpkins, witches, monsters, vampires, and candy everywhere. We even have a blow-up black cat that sits in the driveway. And regardless of how much I own, I buy more every year. I can’t help myself. It’s so much fun. I swear, I’d keep those decorations up all year if my family would let me.

I’m not much into costumes. I used to do it every year, but it became a hassle now that my daughter is into it. She loves dressing up and usually creates a matching costume with my husband. Last year, they were Star Wars characters. She was Darth Vader and he was a Storm Trooper. She doesn’t care much for the girlie princess stuff. She usually dresses up in whatever character she’s into at the moment.

It’s difficult to point out which Halloween-type books I like to read because fantasy is my favorite genre. Instead, I’ll just name a few YA fantasy series that I really enjoyed. Vampire Academy, Hex Hall, Starcrossed, Splintered, and The Mortal Instruments are all completed series I loved from beginning to end. There are many individual books I liked, but there’s not enough space to name them all.

fragile-reign-amazonEach year, I also tinker with the idea of writing a witch series. I’ve done a truckload of research on the subject. Actually, I did an entire presentation on witchcraft in college. Unfortunately, I haven’t come up with something that I’m just dying to write. I have one idea about five witch families in a small town. Sort of a mish-mash of the Covenant and Secret Circle. But I haven’t fleshed it out yet. Maybe someday.

Big thanks to Judith at Binge On Books for giving me the opportunity to talk about such a fun subject. If you’re interested in reading something in YA Fantasy, my book, The Shadow Prince, is available for free on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. It’s about an exiled fire elemental prince that has to decide if he’s willing to kill an air elemental princess he has never met to save his court. Sound interesting? I hope so. 😀

Happy Halloween!

A Spotlight and Giveaway for…Magic Mansion by Jordan C Price!

Now it’s no secret that I’m a rabid Jordan C Price lover: she has so much talent and so much energy and so many crazy, fantastical, wonderful stories inside her that you can’t NOT be a fan. She’s one highly engaging writer of urban fantasy and these ideas she gets? Well…let’s just say that I’d be hard pressed to name anyone of any era who can match her there.

One idea she had – for a reader interactive story where characters were voted out as the story progressed – became the novel we know today as Magic Mansion. Don’t know it? Well, let me break it down for you:

Professor Topaz is tired of fending off advice that he should retire in Vegas where magicians his age have an easier time finding work.

Ricardo Hart’s career has sunk so low, he’s resorted to shaking his moneymaker at bachelorette parties.
magicmansion-ace But there’s a casting call for a new reality show called Magic Mansion that could change everything for these two gay stage magicians, one recovering from the loss of his partner, and the other awe-struck by the presence of his idol. Each is poised for a critical second chance: at fame, and at love.

Who will win? Step into the Mansion, and find out….

How We Began Anthology Giveaway Extravaganza!

How We Began AnthologyHow We Began by Alexis Hall, Delphine Dryden, Vanessa North, Amy Jo Cousins, Annabeth Albert, Geonn Cannon

Available on: Amazon

Release Day Extravaganza Organized by: Liz

I was lucky enough to read an ARC of this anthology a few weeks back, and after I finished it, I felt like I was in a bit of a daze and also floating on the happiest bubble into a rainbow. This collection of stories, the proceeds from which are all going to benefit The Trevor Project, felt almost monumental to me. Some stories are bigger in scope than others, but all are so human and touching and every single one of them is affirming in a way I wish I could have had when I was in high school.

So, we thought about how best to showcase this wonderful anthology, and decided that hey, a giveaway is a beautiful thing. A TRIPLE giveaway? Even better. All money goes to charity? Sound the trumpets!

It’s time for an Extravaganza!
