A Little Trick With Your Treats

Halloween is my favorite holiday.  This is no surprise to the other Playfriends who are forced to participate in costume theme parties occasionally. If I had the time, I would go all out. Host a costume party with fun themed treats like mummy dogs and caramel apples. Intricately carved pumpkins lining the walk up to the house with orange and purple twinkle lights... I prefer the fun part of Halloween over the gory part, so no haunted houses or scary masks for me.

Reality is that it's become a last minute rush. No parties. Very few decorations. I don't have children to take around. If I didn't have foam pumpkins carved in the closet that I could haul out last minute, I wouldn't even have that. DB and I like to hand out candy and see the little kids' costumes. That's about it. It's sad, but time is at a premium these days while I work full time and write nearly full time to keep up with deadlines.

What have I been working on to keep me so busy, you ask? Well, I just so happen to have a paranormal novella out now, just in time for Halloween. Here's the blurb:

SEXY AS HELL: A More Than Men Novella
Strong, sexy and powerful...the kind of man every woman wants in her life and in her bed. But these men are more.  Oh, so much more.

Seth gave up everything to circumvent death, including his freedom. Now he's an immortal warrior serving the Archangel Michael. But Seth has been compromised and he may finally earn his life back. He's just got to send one sexy, stubborn succubus back to hell.

Camille always thought her neighbor was mysterious and handsome, but she never imagined what kind of work really kept him up so late. The succubus Isra has targeted Seth and she has taken Camille as her host as a surefire way to get to him. Isra has twenty-four hours to seduce Seth and steal his immortal life-force by the most pleasurable means possible. The clock is ticking...
I'm really excited about this novella. It's the first in a series that will be coming out over the next year or so with myself and a couple other authors. Each man will be of the sexy and supernatural variety. I'm currently working on the follow up featuring some creepy zombie fun. Nothing like a man with an assault rifle. Here's a super secret sneak peek of the cover that you'll only see here until it debuts online!

If you're looking for some sexy Halloween tricks with your treats, you can download the Sexy as Hell from Amazon.com. If you have Amazon Prime, you can even borrow it for free! It will be available from other online retailers in early 2013. Check it out, and if you feel inclined, help me out by clicking the 'like' button. It helps Amazon decide what books to recommend to readers. Also, if you do buy it, please review it. I'd love to hear what people think of it.

So, I've got no candy to offer you this ear, but who needs it when there are some super sexy abs up for grabs? Hmm... that rhymed awkwardly. Oh well. Tell me about your favorite Halloween treats? I'm a big fan of candy corn and those mini Almond Joy bars. Yum.

Maybe next year we can do a joint Halloween party?!?! The kids are always bugging me for one, but I just can't manage on my own. I'll decorate and you make all the cool food? What do ya say?

I always pick all the Snickers out of the kids bags, because they won't eat them (yeah, that's my excuse). But my faves are the Reese's peanut butter pumpkins. Yum! Yum!

That works for me. Let's do it!

I have a weakness for Reese's pumpkins, too. I like the higher peanut butter to chocolate ratio.

I got the best treat of all this Halloween - a new granddaughter. Alice made her appearance at 2:19 am.

I'm partial to those Reese's pumpkins too.

That's awesome, PM. I saw the picture of you holding her. Very exciting. I think they should make her middle name something spooky. :)
