Holidaze Hammock's Haunt-y Hootenanny is Coming...

Halloween-themed posts? Of course.

Funny? Spooky? Cute? Yep, uh-huh, totally.

Will we meet some wickedly awesome authors? Can't stress the 'definitely' enough here. 

Anything for our trick-or-treat bag, like, you know, a GIVEAWAY? Oh...yeah. But ya better bring a very, very big trick-or-treat bag. ;) 


So, now I just have one tiny question

Are Y'ALL ready for a Hootenanny? 

Coming October 3rd...

Honorary Mermaids

I just loved fellow mer-loving author Susan Fodor's recent blog post.

It made me remember something that life's super-fun (note the sarcasm) obstacles can sometimes cause us to forget: 

We're never really alone, no matter how lost or lonely we may feel. All we need to do is look around and reach out--more often than not, there will be someone reaching right back, taking our hand. 

And if not...well...there's always chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream, Harry Potter, and Tom Hanks & Meg Ryan movies...and Johnny Depp...and Eric Northman...and Viggo Mortensen...and Mr. Darcy. But, keep reaching just the know, with the non-spoon-holding hand.

Oh, and I agree with Susan wholeheartedly--doing a giveaway is much more fun with a group of people. I've loved being a part of Mermaidapaloosa with Susan, Amber, Elle, Heather, Karen, and Brenda. 

Here's to the honorary mermaids of Mermaidapaloosa and all the readers diving in for some fun. <3

Sizzling sand, pristine sea, steamy nights and hot boys! 

Hold onto summer with Mermaidapaloosa!!!
