Happy Halloween!

Yes, it's that time of the year again. Halloween has come around and I'm still pondering costumes. I recently acquired a black skirt and a corset (no, not the one at the top of this page but an underbust one in simple black satin) which, worn over a long-sleeved blouse, would make an excellent Mortitia Adams costume. But then, I'd have to buy a whig because I don't have the hair to go with it... Or I could wear my favourite summer skirt with a white blouse and lots of bangles and a  head cloth and be a fortune teller. Ah, decisions, decisions. There's also the option to put on ripped jeans and a dirty T-shirt and some spooky make-up. Zombies are all the rage at the moment, after all. Only somehow, I don't find them particularly appealing... 
What are you doing for Halloween? Make jack o'lanterns? Dress up in a cool costume? Have a party? Take the kids trick-or-treating? 
I'd love to hear from you in the comments. Happy Halloween, everyone!

Soooo excited!

Do you ever count the days until a certain event? I'm sure everyone does that as a kid waiting for their birthday or Christmas. But as a grown up? Somehow along the way we seem to lose the ability to get THAT excited about anything.

Well, let me tell you, waiting for the publication of my second story with TEB "The Accidental Sub" has me counting the days (18 days! 18 days! not counting today, though, so maybe 19?) and bouncing up and down with excitement. The coolest thing about it? I'm going to be in the Subspace Anthology with Sierra Cartwright (wow!), Desiree Holt (oooh!) and Jan Irving (yay!) as well as Elizabeth Coldwell and Justine Elyot. Soooo excited!

Right. Before this gets any more embarrassing with me leaving puddles on the floor or starting to drool...

It's that time of the month again...

I'll be Hitting the Hot Spot tomorrow, writing about my problem with sudden bouts of (inappropriate) inspiration during my evil day job. Drop by tomorrow and read more!

I'll be back here soon with more on my next release "The Accidental Sub", which will come out on 14 November. So, stay tuned!
