This Halloween, I have chosen six of my books that either take place at Halloween or have some spooky things happening in them, and priced them at 99 cents for you.
Halloween first originated many years ago where it started as a pagan Celtic celebration called Samhain. There were no pumpkins in medieval England, but they carved gourds and lit them with candles to ward away the evil spirits. Children didn’t go trick-or-treating for candy, but they begged at doorsteps for soul cakes instead. Each cake eaten supposedly released a poor spirit from purgatory. The soul cakes had a cross on top and were filled with currants and spices. Click HERE to see a photo and get the recipe to make these ancient soul cakes.
The Caretaker of Showman’s Hill: This is a vampire romance inspired by a real life circus train wreck and the cemetery where the performers were laid to rest. I’ve visited this cemetery personally. Basil Wensilton III guards over a vial of potion, living in the cemetery keeping the other vampires at bay when snoopy reporter Cassie Briggs, comes looking for her missing sister.
Familiar: Slade Spencer is a warlock in denial who comes back to his hometown to find that his past lover, Susie Vasilly is now a cursed woman who shapeshifts into his evil uncle’s cat – or Familiar each night. The villain’s three dozen cats were inspired by an old woman who once lived in my neighborhood and had tons of cats in her house.
Ian: (MadMan MacKeefe Series) Ian MacKeefe sees the face of a man he’s killed in the bonfire on All Hallow’s Eve. Little does he know that his best friend’s sister, Kyla has eyes for him but her future lies in an evil man’s hands instead unless Ian can change it. In this story you will find out how a lot of our Halloween traditions first got started.
Lady and the Wolf: (Tangled Tales Series) Hugh de Bar has been cursed by an evil witch and shapeshifts into a wolf at night. One night he meets up with Lady Winifred (Red) Chaserton and her crossbow in the forest and finds out she is the granddaughter of the man who made him this way. This was inspired by the fairy tale, Little Red Riding Hood.
The Pandora Curse: (Greek Myth Series) Vara the Conqueror is a ruthless warrior woman who has to lose her vices unknowingly, and Hera’s soothsayer son, Nicolai is the one to do it. Inspired by the Greek Myth of Pandora and the shows Xena and Hercules from many years ago. (You will love Baruch the shapeshifting minion that brings humor to this read.)
Muffet: (Once Upon a Rhyme Series) Candy Willowsby is taken over by the ghost of Little Miss Muffet who is out for revenge. Inspired by the nursery rhyme, Little Miss Muffet as well as an old scary house in my neighborhood.
