We Interrupt This Regularly Scheduled Program
This month has gone by in a flash and I'm having a hard time believing that Halloween is only five days away. I hope you've been having a fantastic October and are gearing up for fun-filled Saturday with costumes and candy! Even if celebrating might be different this year, I hope you have a spooktacular night!Normally I'd continue to part 3 of my Mr. Not Me picture book journey (in case you missed it, you can read part 1 here and part 2 here) but I'm going to interrupt this regularly scheduled program and bring you something else instead. Part 3 will resume next week with extra special news!
If you haven't seen this great list of free books, hop on over and scoop up these fun reads before they're gone! Nine spooky (and not-so-spooky) stories just in time for Halloween!
Recently I was asked to read an ARC (advanced review copy) of a book for another author. I haven't finished just yet but the story, ohmygoodness, I'm telling you, this book is a must-read. It is just creepy, good fun. LIFELIKE by Shiela A. Neilson should be on everyone's to-be-read pile. It's only .99 cents on kindle so it would be a mistake not to grab it.
As part of the launch for LIFELIKE, I'll be doing a Facebook takeover! It's part scavenger hunt, author interview, and loads of fun! There's an opportunity to win prizes, too! I encourage you to join the Facebook group for the event and join me there on Thursday, October 29th from 8:00 pm EST - 9:30 pm EST. I'll be giving away a signed paperback copy of book two in the Scarily Ever Laughter series, LITTLE DEAD RIDING HOOD*. So very apropos.

A haunted doll museum. An unsolved murder. A girl with nothing left to lose.
Six months ago Aunt Victoria bought herself doll museum—a sprawling 25-room Victorian mansion filled with toys and playthings from every period of history. Now I'm going to live out the rest of my probably short life in a place listed as unlucky number thirteen in the official guide to the most haunted places in America.
I keep telling myself it’s all just a bunch of old stories. That I don’t believe in ghosts. That the noises I hear coming from the walls are just mice or rats. But I’m not so sure anymore. The dolls are everywhere. I can feel their glass eyes watching me from every corner.
They say a murder was once committed in this house.
I think the person who did it— their ghost—is still here.
When tragedy strikes sixteen-year-old Wren’s family, she can’t see the point in starting over again, especially when her future seems so uncertain and her heart so heavy.
After she is sent to stay with her favorite aunt, who lives in a doll museum, Wren quickly discovers two creepily lifelike dolls hidden inside the walls of the old house. Dolls that were created to look like two very real people—a dangerously handsome young man and his mysteriously beautiful fiancée—a young woman he supposedly murdered a few weeks before their wedding day.
As Wren attempts to solve what really happened all those years ago—she begins to realize that not only are the dolls haunted—but one of them is dead set on making sure the truth will never be revealed. No matter the cost…
Fall in love with a haunting story of a murder set in the past, a thirst for revenge that just won’t die, and a sweet first love that transcends time.
