Hi all! For the next few days I’m participating in the Snarkology Halloween Hop. There are a ton of authors involved (there’s a complete list below) and prizes galore for everyone to win. The grand prize is a $100 gift card to Amazon or Barnes and Noble. You can enter to win that by using the Rafflecopter below. In addition to the grand prize, each author is also giving away something on their own site. More on my giveaway in a second.
First I wanted to talk a little bit about Halloween. Without a doubt, this is my favorite holiday and has been for as long as I can remember. I love fall, the leaves changing, and the cooler temperatures. More than the season, I love adore the history, the creepy atmosphere, and (of course) the horror connection. I glut myself on horror novels and scary movies during October. This year I’ve been binging on erotic horror and re-reading my favorite zombie romance novels.
Some of my favorite movies include George Romero’s Dead series, Night of the Demons(original), Fright Night(original), Night of the Creeps, and The Descent. These movies are so good. I will definitely be watching them at some point on Halloween. I might have to find a few sites (such as https://hellhorror.com and alike) to binge-watch them. I might have to look into the different options of streaming the movies if the aforementioned sites are not available. One of my friends had mentioned in passing about an open-source media center software called Kodi and how it can integrate various streaming platforms on it as add-ons! Maybe, I could give it a shot if it is available in our region (and if not, use a kodi vpn maybe?)!
Also, my friend did suggest that we watch these movies outside. She said we could build a fire and sit outside to watch these movies. We’d just have to purchase an outdoor projector from somewhere like Kohl’s, and then we’d be able to sit outside. My friend even said that we should use some Kohl’s coupons to get money off too. Then, we wouldn’t have to spend as much. We might also want to think about whether or not our internet would be able to reach as far as outside and, if not, look into the various isp in my area to see whether we could upgrade ours ready for our outdoor Halloween viewing.
The list of books I love is much, much longer. However, some of the books I re-read year after year include Haunted by Tamara Thorne, Phantoms and Twilight Eyes by Dean Koontz, Mort by Joseph Duncan, and Dead Tropics by Sue Edge.
So with that thought in mind, I’d like give away a $5 gift certificate for Amazon so whoever the lucky winner is can buy a book or rent a movie of their choice. To enter, just leave a comment sharing your favorite creepy book or movie. I’ll choose a winner at random on November 1st and announce it here on the blog. Please leave your email address or check back here on that date to see if you’ve won.
