Happy Halloween Week!!! To kick off the scary fun, I thought it would be awesome if we could tell our own spooky tales. You know… kind of like around the “campfire” type of thing. Well, just go with it. It’s a virtual campfire. 😉 *snort* But, considering how much we love reading stories, I just KNEW we’d all have our own mini ghost stories to tell, and sure enough, authors and readers alike, sent me their own “personal experiences” with the real-life creepy stuff. AND OMG some of ’em gave me goosebumps. If y’all have more stories to tell, I’ll gladly post one of these posts each night to countdown our Halloween excitement!

Sixteen fabulous sounding earlybird book releases & a few of tomorrow’s preorders…
This Monday kicks off an awesome Halloween book week, ’cause we’ve got some awesome sounding earlybirds that just went live. Mafia men, sexy soldiers, rock stars, and those that can make you rock stars, Lots of bumping into mysterious tattooed strangers today! 😉 Also in case you missed yesterday’s surprises, here it is: Suddenly Sunday Surprises – 15 book surprises that shouldn’t be missed!
My two biggest blurb jolts in this list, below? The Fall Up (she’s famous but wants to end it all, and a stranger saves her…) AND The Realm of You (she realizes her awesome life was just a “dream” when she wakes up in the hospital one day… and she decides to go to the town in her dream to see if she can find that happiness again… and both of her worlds – her real life and her dream life – collide).

Reader Favorites – Bethany’s Top Favorite Books List:
You know what’s fun? When we realize that authors are readers too! I mean, I’ve always known so many of our favorites have their own book favorites and are avid readers too. And it’s even more fun to find out what they love to read when they aren’t writing. Does it inspire them? Does it just give them a fun break-escape from all of their own voices in their heads? What are their absolute favorites? Author Bethany Lopez has been having a blast reading our lists, and she has her very own to send over. AND!! She tells us why she loves these books SO much! P.S. That’s one of her books up there to the left!
