Happy All Hallows Eve. Even though I was raised by strict Irish Catholic parents they still celebrated this event. Of course they celebrated All Saints Day too by writing lists of their dead and going to mass, but they didn’t mind me bobbing for apples and carving potatoes (yes tatties – not pumpkins or even turnips!) but there was no Trick or Treating allowed.
Anyway my kids are all about pumpkins, fancy dress parties and scary movies now. Here are my offerings this year – let’s hope they keep the evil spirits at bay 😉
It is also the birthday of Sam, my main character from Death’s Daughter which is currently out on submission. Happy birthday my fictional friend and good luck!
Nano news. I have signed up for this year’s NaNoWriMo feel free to buddy up as I am sure to need all the egging-on I can get to reach 50k. If you’ve never heard of Nano before click here so you can see what I’m up against.
I should have been planning this story, but I have been distracted by other writing deadlines. I have almost finished the first draft of The Brinded Cat which turned out a lot longer than I expected and will hopefully be published as a free download in the upcoming months.
So I won’t be as visible for the next month, except perhaps on Twitter moaning about how behind I am!
Have a fun night guising and happy Halloween, Samhain, Pomona, Parentalia or whatever else you call it 😀
