Author Override is the place where authors take the reins and take you on a journey into their world. Some may allow you into their private writing dens. Others may take you along with them on research trips or interviews. Whatever the case may be, sit back, relax and enjoy the ride because here you’ll get an in-depth look into an author’s musings.
Let’s Go Haunting
Hi, everyone! I am so excited to be here with you today (and thanks to Francesca for inviting me over!). After a long, wickedly hot summer, I’ve started to focus my attention on fall…and the magic that this time of year seems to bring to me.
My local craft stores have their Halloween decorations up, and, I’ll confess, I’ve already made several Halloween purchases. Two of my favorites? The bone-shaped cookie trays that I snagged and the finger-shaped trays to match them. Oh, Halloween, I do love you.
It’s my love of Halloween that actually inspires many of my stories. Growing up, I could never get my fill of spooky tales. I loved hearing about monsters—mummies, vampires, werewolves. I would watch every scary show I could find, and I would stay up long into the night reading stories with my trusty flash-light gripped in my hand.
Halloween is in my blood. I decorate for it the way some folks decorate for Christmas—all out, baby! I throw a Halloween party every year. I bob for apples. I play musical headstones. I enjoy the scary time.
And as I enjoy, I spin tales. During the month of October, I come up with so many paranormal story ideas! I mean, how could I not? Everywhere I look, I see inspiration. I’ve got little goblins at my door. When you step on my welcome mat, it howls at you. Spooky music plays from my bathroom (ah, yeah, you might not want to know about that). Inspiration strikes me at every turn. So during October, you’ll find me, my fingers flying over the keyboard as I write as frantically as I can.
Oh, and I have one rule about October: I MUST be writing a paranormal story. Sure, I enjoy my romantic suspenses, love them, in fact, but I have to write at least one paranormal story during the month of October, or I’m just a super sad girl.
What about you? Do you enjoy the spooky times? What’s your favorite part of Halloween?
To get you in the Halloween mood, I’ll give one commenter a copy of my new book, HOWL FOR IT.
Happy haunting. 😉
