Halloween Blog Hop!

Starting Friday, and continuing over the Halloween weekend October 28-31, Jeremy Bates is hosting a Halloween Blog Hop. All the details are at his site (or you can use the Linky list at the bottom of this post):

Join in the fun and discover a few new blogs.  You've got four days to browse the list and see who's who. . . in between the fireworks and pumpkins and little ghosts and fairies.

Participants are requested to:

Visit as many of the other blogs as you can in the Linky List below

Follow the site or comment when a blog appeals to you

Tell us your favorite monster movie or book

Share what your Halloween costume will be

My answer to Jeremy's blog hop requirements:
  • Fave monster/Book: God Emperor of DUNE - the part human, mostly sandworm creature of Frank Herbert's DUNE series who tries to 'become' the Worm.
  • The Lady in Black costume (this covers many variations:  the deadly black widow, the dark witch, the French Existentialist, the retro Beatnik, the vampy Goth, you get the idea. . .)

Have a look around at either of my blogs (they're on the list), and follow if it appeals to you.  Hope you have a great weekend!



  1. And here I am, hopping from the Halloween Hop

  2. Hello! (((((hugs)))))

    It’s so awesome to visit your lovely blog today on this Halloween blog hop. I think this is an awesome opportunity to meet other authors! I’m joining your blog and I hope you’ll join mine, too, so we can learn more about one another.
    My favorite monster movie is Night of the Living Dead and I’m dressing up as a mime. Mime is one of the most ancient forms of theatre, appearing around the time of the Greek tragedies. I hope to perfect the art and technique of portraying a mood, idea, or narration by gestures and bodily movements. The only problem is…that I have a big mouth! LOL. It’s so nice to meet you!


    P.S. I’d love to connect with you online!

    Have a great Halloween...

  5. Halloween Hop!
    Hi! The scariest book I've ever read was "IT". It reached deep into my subconsciousness and scared the heck out of me! For Halloween I'll be dragging out my Elmo snuggy for my couch potato costume.

  7. I like your background. =)

    Looking at the "friends" we have in common I'm really surprised we haven't met before. *sigh* Well, remedied now. =) I'm the local cheese connoisseur on this bloghop--and if I could, I would go as a cheese wheel for Halloween. Alas, the budget does not permit. Guess I'll have to make up for it by posting cheesy comments eh?

  8. Welcome Crystal, Some of the best cheese-y movies are great for Halloween: Hellboy, Mars Attacks, X-Men, and the Hulk.

    One of my fave monster-humans: Edward Scissorhands by Tim Burton starring J. Depp.
    (watched this while flying to Paris - can't sleep while flying)

  9. Hopping on over to say HELLO! Hope you have a spooktacular Halloween!

  10. @Kerri - Hello, nice to meet you. Welcome to my blog. Next post due up Nov. 1st. Hope you'll drop by then.

  11. Stopping by from the Halloween Hop!

    I have the Dune series in my TBR pile; I really have to get around to reading them.

  12. Dropping by for the Halloween hop :-)

    My favourite scary movie or book...erm well i'm not really a fan of anything scary to be honest lol! A total wimp! Though i did manage to sit through Sleepy Hollow- Johnny Depp had a lot to do with that :-D

    This year i won't be dressing up until next month when i go and visit my sister in Scotland. Not a clue what i'm going to wear

    New follower here :-)


  13. @The Golden Eagle - welcome to my blog.

    As for Dune, I read the books before seeing the movie, yet I really liked the movies that were produced. I have all the newer ones, too, that Frank Herbert's son co-authored with another writer. You'll be amazed at the scope of the imagination that went into the DUNE series.

    When you're ready, you'll know. You'll see the worm-sign.

  14. @TTORIA - (how will you be 'dressing up' in Scotland?) Intriguing.

    Welcome to my blog. And I agree. Johnny Depp makes anything more palatable, but I especially liked him as the lovable pirate-cum-KeithRichards.

    Have a great Halloween.

  15. Hello fellow hopper!

    So glad I was able to visit your site! :) I am visiting from the Coffin Hop and happy to take part in this hop also. This Halloween I will be dressing as a swashbuckling pirate. Two of my favorite scary books are The Witching Hour and Let the Right One In. A fave movie is Bram Stoker's Dracula. I love this time of year--we get to indulge in a bit of darkness. Please hop over and visit me if you like at where I am giving coupons to your choice of my books and you can enter and win a NOOK! Thanks and hope to see you there!


  16. @Penelope - thanks for visiting. Good Luck with your book promo offer.

  17. @PhilH - thanks for following and for joining in the Halloween Hop.

    Your site looks interesting. I checked it out earlier.

  18. I’m here visiting from Jeremy Bates' blog hop, and I love your blog!

    My favorite scary book is IT (scared the crap out of me as a kid), movie that horrified me most was Rob Zombie’s remake of Halloween, and I did not dress up this year, because I suck. One of my favorite costumes in the past was "Dead Baby Roller Blades."

    Happy Halloween!

  19. i remember the dune game for the PC ages ago! never read the books though...
    stopping by late bc something took me out of the city for a couple days, but hope u had a good weekend!
    my favorite horror movie is the shining, or alien

  20. I promise I will read Dune one of these days. I ended up being three things for Halloween, at different times for different events: a pumpkin, a pirate and Dr. Beverly Crusher (okay, ST:TNG science officer, but, with my hair, I think I can be more specific; I just need a lab coat and a tricorder).

  21. I wonder if my husband knows there is (or was) a Dune PC game...

  22. J., I didn't know there was a DUNE game - but then I'm not gamer. Is that how teachers relax after a hard day at school?
