2023’s 13 Horrifically Silly Days of Halloween
Welcome to my new blog EEP!. EEP stands for Eager Eye Publishing, and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate its launch, reading, writing, and all things autumnal in my most favourite month of the year—October. Oh wait! Yes, I can. By offering up a free story later this month. Read further for more information…
The countdown to Halloween begins today over at Regan Macaulay’s Blog of Unsual Things where she is publishing a spooky story every day until the end of the month in her annual 13 Horrificially Silly Days of Halloween series. 🦇
Consume stories along with your pumpkin latte or pumpkin muffin or pumpkin whatever. Beware, not all of the stories are for kids! Still, what better way to spend October evenings?
Here’s the lineup for 2023. And yes, that’s a story written by me listed on Days 11 & 12 (October 29 & 30), a new novella called Every Day is Halloween debuting on Regan’s blog. Please bookmark this page and return to it throughout the rest of October. As each story is released, I will add the link below.
