It’s been quite a busy time for The She-Wolf of Kanta lately! We had a blog tour a few weeks back and if you check out the header up top, you’ll notice that the reviews have been just shining for Mercy and her werewolf adventure. I’ve been so pleased with how much people love her story and I’m so excited for my readers to learn about her world.
If you’re not sure, what I’m talking about, then you may want to sign up for my newsletter so you’ll be the first to find out about any official appearances this year. Like I’ve said before, there’s a LOT going on right now.
First up, Pre-Orders are OPEN for SWoK! I was fortunate enough to see the previews for the print copy, and let me tell you, they are simply gorgeous. The werewolf motif throughout would be enough to get me to buy it even if it wasn’t my book, being the werewolf fan I am. It’s just THAT good.
If you missed my posts on Facebook/Instagram/Twitter, there is a Giveaway right now for SWoK along with an Amazon gift card. Currently there are over 2,000 people who have signed up, but 27 copies will be given away, so the odds aren’t too bad!
Finally, I will be attending the Geranium Festival this year in McDonough, GA. Considering that I’ve attended it ever since I was a kid, it’s crazy that I’ll be a vendor there this year. I’ve joined forces with several other artists, including my sister MorbidSmile, to sell a variety things from knitting work to art prints, and of course my novella SWoK. And since folks have asked me, I WILL be signing copies there upon request.
Whew! So many updates and I’m still a little under two months away from release day. Did I mention that the recording for the audiobook has also begun? Guys, I can’t express how excited I am. As an author, it’s terribly ironic, I know.
Today I’m over at HWA’s Halloween Haunts talking about one of the coolest and scariest places to go trick-or-treating as a child: Burke’s Circle. The neighborhood looked like it was plucked from a Halloween movie and planted just for us kids to enjoy. Almost every house was decked for Halloween and giving out candy, and each home you visited made you double check the doorways and watch the shadows.
Be sure to comment at the site to be entered to win a free physical copy of Not Your Average Monster Volume 2, which I’m proud to report still has a 5-star rating on Amazon. It features my own creature horror story, “Tiny Necks”, which I talk a little bit about over here: Outside Your Comfort Zone.
We’ve had our Halloween decorations up for a couple of weeks, but that doesn’t diminish the excitement when October rolls around. The temperature has dropped and the sweaters have been broken out. Pretty soon it’ll be time to visit pumpkin patches and drink hot apple cider to keep warm. It’s the month for marathoning horror films and making the tough decision of figuring out what to wear to that Halloween party.
Now there’s another treat to help you enjoy this frightful season. Throughout the whole month of October the Horror Writer’s Association will have daily guest blog posts from horror authors celebrating the season of candy and terror. We’re posting short stories, reminiscing about the joy of Halloween, and of course hosting giveaways!
Drop by and check out today’s Halloween Haunt post, Dirty Ghosts by David Ghilardi. To see the full schedule, check out the listing here on Facebook.
Be sure to drop by on October 5th for your chance to win a free copy of Not Your Average Monster Volume 2!
On October 31st, for Halloween, one lucky winner will win a Kindle Fire HD6 as well!
If you missed out on grabbing a copy of Not Your Average Monster Volume 2 a few months back, you can pick it up quite cheap right now on Amazon, and just in time to enjoy reading throughout October.
In other news, I just finished submitting my blog post for HWA’s Halloween Haunts blog series, which will be posted throughout the month of October as well. Authors will be making posts, giving peeks at upcoming pieces, and having giveaways daily. So don’t worry, we’ll make sure there’s plenty to help you enjoy the Halloween season.
Now that I’m finally recovered from DragonCon (and all the con crud that came with it), we’ll be putting up our Halloween decorations soon. I plan to post pictures of how we decorate our home and would love to see yours too! We just made our Target run the other day since their Halloween items just got put on the shelf too.
Thank goodness Halloween is coming!
Win a copy of Rapunzel’s Daughters from fellow contributor Ash Krafton! It looks like it’ll be open through August, so make sure you join in the drawing. And don’t forget to add it to your To-Read list.
