There’s just something about the end of October that I really love. The temperatures are cool, sunset happens earlier and there’s a “feel” in the air that whispers of all things mysterious and spooky. No, I’m not a big fan of going to haunted houses to be scared but I do love seeing all the Jack-O-Lantern’s at all the houses, the crisp crackle of leaves beneath my feet, the woodsy, oak-scent of wood burning stoves or the tang of sweet, warm cider on my tongue. This is the time of year I like best and the time of year that lends itself to storytelling around a fire or with a flashlight in hand. Storytelling’s in my blood and who doesn’t like a creepy, tingling ghost story that gets the blood pumping and the heart racing? And if there’s a happy ending, all the better!
I hope you enjoy the rest of this Halloween weekend and all the offerings everyone has planned. Before you go, read the blurb for my newest Halloween story HUNTER’S MOON MAGIC:
Judith Goode, wrongly accused of witchcraft during the trials in 1600 Massachusetts, casts a spell on the black velvet dress she intended to wear for her lover’s return. If she can’t realize true love then she wants to ensure that any woman who wears the dress will but fate has other plans.
Even though Judith is now in ghost form, her quest to unite her soul with her lover’s burns strong. The enchanted dress has survived for two hundred years and is now in the hands of Carolina Cox who wears it to a masquerade where she meets Paul Brown. Love blooms and is realized yet life’s problems prevent a perfect match.
Disheartened through the years, Judith gives the attempt one last time in modern day Indianapolis by putting the dress in the hands of Jacob Howson, one of her last living ancestors. He’s a computer programmer looking for love and finds it by literally running into Lexy Brown at a dry cleaner.
Sometimes the love worth waiting for can be found under the light of a Hunter’s Moon.
