Happy Halloween everyone! What a fun time of year! I ADORE Halloween and all that comes with it. We have a few must-do, must-see favorites around our house! Two are Abbot and Costello meet Frankenstein, and Tim Burton's Sleepy Hollow. Johnny Depp is an all-time favorite of mine anyway, but his portrayal of Ichabod Crane is THE BEST EVER!

Love me some Trick-or-Treaters, too! And what's Halloween without Lou and Bud running into three of Hollywoods greatest monsters ever? Dracula, Frankenstein, and the Wolfman! We can't forget about Casper, or Stephen King's SILVER BULLET (love me some Corey Haim in that one!) (or Stephen King's ANYTHING, really!), and we add Edward Scissorhands into the mix as well. You HAVE to have a good haunted house thrown in, and since my kids are too big for me to follow them around and trick or treat, I mooch off my friend's kids (this year we have Superman, Buzz Lightyear and WOODY!)

I remember when I was a kid, our Halloween costumes came in those flimsy white boxes with a see-through plastic top. You had your choice of Casper, a monster, a princess, and a few more. FUN DAYS INDEED!!!!

Gotta love Edward Scissorhands' hair! Sort of looks like Edward Cullen's!!! Ha!

We are SO watching Abbot and Costello, and Sleepy Hollow TONIGHT! Yay! "Heeey, Chick! Whoooa Chick!" LOL! That is some classic funny stuff!!!! And with Tim Burton, you can't go wrong!

I just finished putting candy in little Halloween bags for Trick-or-Treaters, and while I've had my front porch decorated since the first of October, I'm doing the final spooky touches tonight. I'm terrible about uploading pics, but I'll take some and post!

Happy Halloween, and BEWARE OF THE HARVEST MOOOOON..........

A Highlander Christmas CONTEST!

While I'm not quite finished enjoying my favorite month (OCTOBER!) or holiday (HALLOWEEN!), A Highlander Christmas, my Christmas anthology, will hit the shelves November 3rd, so I thought I'd better hurry up and get a contest rolling! :)

Dawn Halliday and Sophie Renwick are the other contributing authors, and their stories are fabulous! Mine is, of course, ghostly, and involves a Munro ancestor! :)

A CHRISTMAS SPIRIT: Paige MacDonald's Highland tour takes a surprising turn when a storm forces her to seek refuge in a forbidding castle already inhabited by the dead-sexy spirit of Gabriel Munro...

So! All you have to do is simply comment here, and tell me your favorite holiday! I'll randomly select two winners TUESDAY, OCT 27th. The winners will recieve each a copy of A HIGHLANDER CHRISTMAS!

Good luck!

Hey! Do you see a resemblance here? LOL!
I ADORE Christopher Walken, especially as the Hessian Horseman in Tim Burton's, Sleepy Hollow (I'll blog about that later!~LOVE THAT MOVIE!!!)

And how freaking cool is Martha Stewart as the GHOSTLY EQUESTRIENNE! BOOHOOO! I wanna be the GHOSTLY EQUESTRENNE!!! Lol! She looks so COOL! Wicked contacts in her eyes and a nice oogie scar on her pasty ghost face! And her top hat ROCKS! :) This Halloween issue of her magazine rocks, too. Lots of great recipes and other cool stuff!!!

More later! I'm off to Georgia Romance Writer's Moonlight and Magnolias Conference in Norcross, GA (outskirts of Atlanta), so if anyone is close by, come on over on Saturday for the literature book signing/sale and say HI!!!!

And PS...THANK YOU EVERYONE for all your wonderful fine comments on Thirteen Chances! You're so sweet! I loved writing Christian's story! He's always been one of my favorite characters!!!! :)

See ya'll soon!
