Halloween Blog Tour Bash & Book Launch Party!


Hey everyone!  It’s Halloween, which means it’s the last day of the Wicked, Weird and Whimsical Words Halloween Blog tour, and also the launch date for The Midnight Carnival: One Night Only!  If you’d like to win a copy of One Night Only plus a bunch of other cool prizes, be sure to comment to this or any other blog post on the tour!

Now, I love Halloween but my family didn’t technically celebrate it.  My dad passed out candy, but my mom was religious and didn’t believe in Halloween, so we never got to go trick-or-treating.  We got to pass out candy sometimes and see kids in cool costumes, and we got to eat the leftover candy and chips in the weeks after, but that was it. 

So, Halloween has never been much about getting treats for me.  It’s about seeing other people in costumes, and spooky stories and movies (which you couldn’t avoid), and black cat, pumpkin and bat decorations.  Sometimes it’s about giving treats, too (like I mentioned over on Justine’s blog, I utterly adore the new All Hallows Read tradition).

A couple of years ago the Halloween treat was launching Re-Vamp, which was a total thrill.  I’m still proud of that collection and our wonderful authors have given us permission to keep the book available for the foreseeable future.  This year’s treat is releasing One Night Onlyand I hope people enjoy it as much as they’ve seemed to enjoy Re-Vamp.  Based on a shared world/RP, One Night Only explores the misadventures, mishaps, and mischief of a carnival full of monsters and stranger things.  If you’re a fan of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” or “Being Human” you’ll probably enjoy One Night Only, with its mix of horror, humor, and quirky characters.  It’s a very playful book,and we had a lot of fun writing it, which I think shows.

What Halloween treats are you looking forward to this year?

    You written so well i enjoyed while reading..

  2. Congrats on the release of “Carnival”, here’s hoping it’s a monstrous success! And thank you so much for organizing this Halloween blog tour. It’s been a hoot. Where I live, out in the sticks at the end of a dead-end dirt road, we don’t get trick-or-treaters. I adore dressing up in costume (as I get older, doing the witch bit requires less and less make-up!) but rarely get the opportunity. I guess that’s what conventions are for.

    • Thanks so much! I’m glad you enjoyed the tour! Man, we don’t get any trick-or-treaters in our building either, even though we’re in a very populated area. I’m not sure where the kids go? Maybe to the mall or local businesses, I’ve heard some people are doing that now.

      Dressing in costumes is always fun! I wish I had more chances to do it too.

  3. Congratulations on the release of “Carnival.” It’s been a blast doing the Halloween blog tour with you, and the release of your new book is the best way I can think of to finish-off the tour.

    • Thank you and I’m so happy you enjoyed the tour. It really was fun and all the posts were great. Good luck with everything!
