Welcome to the first ever Pages of Fear blog hop. It’s a pre-Halloween event celebrating authors who like to fright and delight with their writing. As you progress through the twenty-eight blogs/websites you’ll learn about authors you may already know and be introduced to some new ones.
Everyone loves the opportunity to get something free. All of the authors have gathered together to give ONE lucky winner signed copies of their books (one per author). You may even find other types of giveaways on their sites so, keep your eyes open. While you’re looking you want to locate the secret word on each site. Make a list of the words in the proper order. When you reach the final destination (Authorsfbenson.com), you’ll find an email address. Send your list to it. The winner will be selected courtesy of random.org.
Get on your marks.
(Just a special little post for this blog hop only, an introduction into my Paranormal Detectives Series' world, brought to you by Angelica Cross, the character who hijacks this blog whenever she has something to say.)
Hello, humans. (Or non humans; anyone reading this get a little furry in the moonlight or suddenly crave tomato juice at sunset?) My name is Angelica, and as it is Halloween season, I am releasing my annual PSA from the Paranormal Investigative Division. Believe it or not, most paranormal creatures don't become more powerful on All Hallow's Eve. Witches don't go out looking to kidnap children dressed up and high on candy, vampires don't hunt for fresh blood, and werewolves won't turn involuntarily unless it's a full moon.
Halloween is a great day for asshole humans to try and scare or hurt children. And since Halloween has long been considered my peoples' holiday, I take it upon myself to send my agents out on patrol all over the world.
So you want to dress up as a vampire and paint your skin porcelain? Go for it. Wanna wrap yourself in toilet paper to be a mummy? Fine by me. Because on Samhain the things to fear aren't the creatures you portray. October 31st, you just might find yourselves in the debt of a shape-shifter or a ghoul. Or even a little old vampire like me.
So, humans, on Halloween you should have nothing to fear from us...unless you give us a reason. So please, do give us a reason. We can all use a little fresh blood now and again.
