Happy Halloween! I hope that you’re having a fun and safe holiday. I’ve been celebrating all month long, but I’m still excited about tonight. I can’t wait to see the Trick or Treaters show up at my house and see all the decorations we’ve put up. Our house is probably the most decorated in my whole neighborhood so I know that we’ll get some great reactions.
If you need a little break from the chaos, though, maybe you want to curl up with a mug of hot tea or cocoa and read a book. I have the perfect thing for you! As I mentioned, I took part in a Halloween short story challenge this month. All of the stories have been collected into an anthology. Some stories are scary, but others are more fun, so there’s something for everyone! It’s a great way to get into the Halloween spirit. I have two stories and a poem, and one of these stories is exclusive to the collection!
The 2019 Halloween Short Story Challenge is an anthology of stories that will tantalize you, terrify you and taunt you. With 25 stories and poems written by 15 authors, there’s something for everyone!
