Trick-or-treat extended tweet!

Halloween is definitely one of my favorite holiday’s… EVER. It may have a little something to do with my love of all things mysterious and paranormal. Or it could just be my undying obsession with horror movies, pumpkins and things that go bump in the night.

Either way, what’s not to love about dressing up like a ghoul and taking candy from strangers? It’s the one day we’re told to forego the advice of our parents and threaten our neighbors to hand over sugary treats, or reap the consequences. (Trick-or-treat anyone?)

Speaking of parents… My parents got married on Halloween, which is an awesome story, and maybe one day I’ll write about it. (Watch out Wes Craven and John Carpenter.) Happy Anniversary Mom & Dad, love you to death!

In all seriousness, I’d like to wish you all a very spook-tacular day.

Be safe, get in the ‘spirit’ of things, play some tricks, get some treats and have some fun on this last day of October.

Happy Halloween – Eat, drink and be scary!!!

WANTED: Guest Bloggers

As you may know from my previous tweet, I’m on the hunt for some guest bloggers. I’ve gotten some great feedback from it so far, and I’m almost through all the DM’s. (Thank you all, BTW for being as excited as I am about this.)

I have gotten a few questions about exactly what I’m looking for, so I hope this post helps to answer all of your guest blogging worries.

Basically I’m looking for anything having to do with writing. If you’ve come across a quote or poem that has inspired you that works too. If you’ve been published and want to share your story, if you’ve just gotten your 1,000,000th form rejection (okay maybe not a million) and you want to share how you keep yourself optimistic then that’s what I want to hear.

If it has to do with the road to publication, how you juggle life and writing, your writing journey, (writing journey can be getting an agent, revisions, rewrites, etc.) then it’ll be perfect. Heck if you’ve got a kick-ass recipe you’d like to share with some pictures of your finished cooking adventure, then I’d LOVE it! (Aside from writing, I’m a huge foodie. But you probably already knew that.)

If you’ve carved the Martha Stewart of all pumpkins (jack-o-lanterns) and you want to share the picture, then… you guessed it, that works too.

The sky is the limit. However, I’d like to keep it positive. So if you’ve received your ba-jillionth rejection and you are fed up with the world of publishing and you’re looking for a place to bash it, then this probably won’t be the best platform.

I’ve already selected one guest blogger, @EileenAndrews, so be sure to check out her website and follow her on Twitter! Oh and lastly, if you are interested in being a guest blogger, you can leave a comment here, DM me on Twitter or @reply me and I’ll be in touch. I can’t wait to see what you come up with!
