Monster Mash

I'm headed to my local Harvest Homecoming festival this weekend and intend to eat my way through it. The downtown streets are closed and vendors from all across the country converge on our quiet little community. There are 352 booths this year that peddle everything from apple dumplings to authentic gyros. There are handmade crafts and jewelry, but the food is the big draw. The kids and I wouldn't miss it and the weather is supposed to be spectacular.

There is a wonderful giveaway going on this week that I wanted to pass along. Quinn over at Seeing, Dreaming...Writing has reached 100 followers (yay Quinn!) and is giving away a $40.00 Amazon gift card plus a query or chapter critique in celebration of this momentous occasion. Contest ends 10/9 so hurry!

I would like to give my heartfelt thanks to Carolyn V. who awarded me the One Lovely Blog Award. Her own blog is simply wonderful. You should check it out.

I am going to be part of the Tales From Under The Grave blogfest that will run from October 22nd through the 31st. I promise giveaways, ghost stories and CANDY! More details to come as the date looms closer...muwahahaha!

The week of October 17th, I will be doing a series of posts about My Haunted Hometown. I had no idea the places around me were so scary. So cozy up to the screen and share some truly terrifying tales with me over a cup of hot chocolate or a glass of wine (hmmm...choices, choices).

I'm closing in on 100 followers myself. Of course there will be a contest, but I can't decide on a prize. That's where you come in. Tell me which new book you've been dying to read. The one at the tippy-top of you list. We'll see how things turn out. Maybe I'll give away several.

As always, have a great weekend!

Aw Lisa! Thanks for linking me! You're so awesome!

I am so scared of ghost stories, I'm not sure what I'm going to do this Halloween with all the ghost stories going around! I'll just hunker down and shiver under a blanket. =D

This harvest festival sounds great! I'm sure you'll have loads of fun and October sounds like a great time to be a follower of your blog! I'm so stoked.

Thanks for posting about my giveaway!

I wish I could be eating an apple dumpling right now. My grandmother used to make them all the time. Well, I guess she still does, but seeing as I'm in a different country it kinda makes it hard to get one.

You're on 99 followers as I type this! The Harvest Festival sounds fantastic--we don't really have festivals here where we shut down the streets, and I loved them when I was in the US.

Carolyn, you're welcome. The blanket sounds like an excellent idea.

Golden Eagle, thanks!

Melissa, glad you're stoked. It should be fun.

Quinn, you're welcome. I wish I could send you a dumpling!

Amie, we only have this type of street festival once a year so it's pretty crowded, but I get to meet up with a lot of friends that I don't see on a regular basis.
