Happy Halloween! My favorite holiday. I love the decorations, the scary movies, the candy, and especially the costumes. Wouldn’t it be fun to live in a world where we could dress up in costume any time we wanted? Just put on a mask or a hat or a cape and be someone else for a few hours? That would be a riot!
I took theater in high school and fell in love with the idea of slipping into a fictional character’s shoes for a while. It’s one of the reasons I write stories today…every day for a few hours, I get to be one (or two or three) of my characters. Some are witches, some are spies. There’s vampires, demons, a Hollywood chef…I get to live a lot of different lives vicariously and experience a rich world inside my imagination and on the page.
Two years ago, Edie Ramer asked me to help her pull together a paranormal anthology for Halloween in order to spotlight breast cancer awareness. Since breast cancer has affected a few of my family members and friends, I was thrilled to be part of a cause that combined reading and support for a cure. A new story was born (Revenge Is Sweet) with new characters I loved, and from that, a whole new series developed.
Entangled, A Paranormal Anthology, features eleven short stories – sexy, funny, scary, we’ve got the perfect mix for Halloween entertainment. It’s like dressing up and slipping into someone else’s life for a few hours without ever leaving home.
During the past two years, the anthology has raised over $14,000 for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, and at the same time, given readers hours of enjoyment with stories by eleven best-selling authors. All proceeds from the sale of the book go to BCRF.
But just like November 1st rolls around too soon for me after a pimped out night of Halloween fun, now it’s time for us to take down the anthology. The last day to get a copy of Entangled is October 31s. We hope you’ll purchase your copy, if you haven’t already done so, and maybe one for a friend. Support breast cancer research by reading (and sharing!) a good book.
Happy Halloween and happy reading…what’s your favorite Halloween candy treat? The one you hide from the trick-or-treaters so it’s ALL yours? One commenter will win a free copy of ENTANGLED!
