Get Ready for Halloween!

Are getting ready for Halloween?  Well, kitty is getting ready.  Seriously though, there's a ton of stuff happening next month so I thought I'd share some cool spooky things to see if you're interested in participating.

The IWSG Short Story Contest 2015

ISWG has an short story competition with the top ten stories getting published in an anthology. How exciting is that? The story word count is 5000-6000 and the theme is Alternate History/Parallel Universe. The details are listed on the IWSG website. The entry deadline is November 1st so with Halloween around the corner, this should be a fun one to enter, right?

Share a Scare Blog Hop 2015

Looking to create your own fun this Halloween?  This hop encourages all bloggers, writers and artists to feature a scare on their blog -- the creepier the better.  Bloggers can review a favorite scary book, writers can create their own frightening tale and artists can post a wicked picture they created.  Details about this cool hop are here.

That's it for now!  Sounds like fun, huh?  If you have any other cool ideas for Halloween, comment and share the fun.

Have a great weekend.

Oh, fun! The "Share a Scare" blog hop looks pretty tempting, but I don't think I'll have the time to join in, since I'm so busy with other art-related things. Will have to try remembering it, though, just in case!

Haha, love the gif of kitty filing her claws. :D
I'd love to join some bloghops but I'm just now trying to get back into the swing of all things blogosphere and writing, I'm so behind!!! Hugs! Miss ya, hon!

I've joined the Share a Scare blog hop. It sounds fun. I'd like to join the Book giveaway one, but my current books on Amazon still have typos and I know my editor (who is in charge of uploading the stories) is super busy. So I may have to pass on that one.
