I know what you’re thinking! I’m never around on weekends, and that’s normally always true, but I wanted to participate in Bad Moon Rising, an annual bookish Halloween event hosted by Teri Polen, and Teri had this date available. Bad Moon Rising is something I look forward to each October. I know it’s a huge undertaking for Teri to pull together. I’ve been enjoying the heck out of it this year, and hope you have been, too.

Teri is a talented author of young adult novels covering various sub-genres—from the spooky ghost story, Sarah, to her latest, Subject A36, a dystopian novel. I’ve read all of her work, which you can find on her Amazon Author Page.

Today, it’s my turn to answer Teri’s Bad Moon Rising questions. I’m sharing the urban legend that frightened me the most as a child, and what I once remember seeing in my peripheral vision as I continue my book tour for Things Old and Forgotten. If you’re online this Saturday, pop over and say HELLO!



Get Your Ghost On #BadMoonRising

We all know that October is a time for ghouls, ghosts, and things that go-bump-in-the night. Friend, author, and sister blogger, Teri Polen, hosts a paranormal-centric event this time of year called Bad Moon Rising. I’m delighted to be her guest today, answering questions about Ouija boards and haunted houses among other things. Some of my answers might surprise you. Intrigued? You can find our interview here.

And while you’re visiting, I encourage you to poke around Teri’s blog haunt and check out her books. She’s a talented author of YA, horror, and sci-fi. If you’re not following  already, I encourage you to click the follow button on her blog and get to know this friendly, gifted writer. I’m already looking forward to her next release!

Gearing up for Halloween

I’m always jazzed this time of year, inspired by the numerous bump-in-the-night ghostie and goblin posts that pop up in the blogosphere. For someone who loves folklore and legend, October is a month for feasting on myth!

There are a variety of events taking place in the online world. I’m excited to be participating in two that really appealed to me.

Today, I’m visiting Teri Polen during her month-long Bad Moon Rising feature. All month long, you can meet new authors, discover new reads, and have trick-or-treat fun with the Halloween questions Teri poses for her guest. I hope you’ll pop over and say hello while I’m hanging out with Teri today.

Next week, I’ll be visiting Melanie Noell Bernard who is doing a month-long paranormal event called Hallo-WE-en that features creatures. Each day you’ll get to meet a different beastie. Today, my good friend and critique partner, Staci Troilo, shares the history and folklore of gargoyles at Melanie’s haunt in the blogosphere.

So, get your ghostie on and celebrate Halloween!
