Halloween Happenings by Mae Clair

Did you feel that goose bump? Spooky happenings are afoot as I go traveling today!

design background for Halloween partyFirst up, I’m sharing a piece of flash fiction called A la Carte Kiss about a sexy vampire (yes, the werewolf girl wrote something about a vamp!) as part of Karen Michelle Nutt’s Halloween Flash Fiction Bash.

And because I wanted to offer a Halloween treat I’ll be awarding a $5.00 gift card to Amazon to one commenter. My blog followers have been so wonderfully supportive, so do hop over and enter your name for a shot at it. Aren’t treats fun?

Lest werewolves get short shrift, I’m also on Lyrical Press’s blog participating in Celebrate Paranormal Month with a post about my hunky Civil War colonel, Caleb DeCardian from WEATHERING ROCK.

So grab some apple cider or pumpkin juice and come traveling with me. What do you think of my “owlish” messenger? 😀 Isn’t he perfect as a Halloween usher?

Sizzle and Sass: A Kindle Paperwhite G*I*V*E*A*W*A*Y by Mae Clair

Welcome to October, friends. I’m a summer kind of gal, but I’m easily enchanted by the magic of fall. Who doesn’t succumb to the spell of jewel-bright leaves, cozy hearth fires and bright orange pumpkins? October is one of my favorite months, and this year I’m thrilled to be participating in multiple events celebrating authors, writers, and Halloween shenanigans.

ss180x600dFirst up, a number of my Lyrical Press sisters and I have teamed together as hostesses of a fun Facebook page called Sizzle and Sass. We hope to interact with readers and other authors sharing ideas, snippets of our works, games, giveaways, and more. And, of course, we want you to share as well, visit and comment often. 😀

Today is the official launch, and in celebration, we’re giving away a Kindle Paperwhite with our novels. I’ll be including a gifted copy of TWELFTH SUN. You can see all of the books in the banner strip on the left.

It’s simple to enter. All you have to do is like our Facebook page and enter the Rafflecopter giveaway by clicking here. The contest runs through October 26th, so share the news with your friends. We’d love to have you join us and check back often. Each week a different “Sassy Lady” will be hostess of resident mischief and fun including such events as Trivia Tuesday and What I Wrote Wednesday, plus posts introducing other authors and everyday rampant silliness. We want it to be a fun experience for everyone, so hop over, give us a “like” and enjoy our free giveaway for a Kindle Paperwhite. I’ll be Sassy Hostess the week of October 21st and hope to see you then if not before.

October is also “Celebrate Paranormal Month” on Lyrical Press’s blog with a different blog post and book featured each day. I’m participating with a post on werewolves along with my novel WEATHERING ROCK on October 10th. Join us for the entire month with a bounty of spooky paranormal reads.

Halloween LandscapeI’ve got a few other ghoulish visits up my sleeve during the month and will be sharing them as they happen. In the meantime, I’m extending awesome autumnal wishes to all. May your pumpkins be plump, your goblins gregarious, and your soups warmed by cozy hearth fires.

Happy Autumn!
