Happy Halloween to all who celebrate the Holiday! I have something like seven bags of candy all ready for the Trick-or-Treaters on Thursday!
But I don’t have a pumpkin yet. I planned to pick one up yesterday and it didn’t work out, so I either get it today or I suck
Middle Son, however, not only has a pumpkin but he’s carved it and sent me the picture:
Middle Son did this freehand. He’s the most artistic of all of us, so I’m not surprised.
For our Worthy Guy Today, let’s play Who’s Hotter for Halloween:
Who do you vote for?

My hand is right up there for Chris! I love that guys look. He’s my go to guy for all my heroes even if they don’t look a thing like him ;).
Over the past 15 years living out here I’ve learned not to bother with candy but we always get a pumpkin. Often we don’t carve it but keep it around in the house until spring. Once the snow melts we place it on a fallen tree just into the woods, stand on the deck and shoot it. Yes, we are strange.
Middle son did a very nice job with his pumpkin. Maybe you can just post a photo of it and claim it as yours :).
Have a great day!

Oh man, you did make it a hard Worthy contest, and if you had put just about anyone else up, I’d be all for Thor, but come on… I’ve crushed on Wolverine since I was reading comic books as a teen and on Hugh since I saw him in Kate & Leopold. No contest.
Okay, now that the distraction is… oh Hugh… out of the way… MS made an awesome Jack o’ Lantern. Too cool. I want one. We don’t have a pumpkin this year. Out here in a neighborhood where I think I’m the youngest permanent resident – and now that the Kid is away from home – there’s no point. As for the candy, I’m hoarding it. If anyone does comes begging, they can’t have any. So there. It’s mine all mine. Bwa ha ha.

Thor, no question about it. I agree with Vicki on this one…hero material all the way.
My kids carved pumpkins even though they are teenagers, but we live in rural area. I don’t think we will get any trick or treaters. But I bought candy…you know, just in case.
Love MS pumpkin btw

I have to decide? Can’t. So I will go back to the pumpkin spice cookies and spiked I mean spiced cider.
I will be finishing up my daughter’s costume tonight. It is amazing what one can do with fake fur a glue gun and Velcro.

Both. Not gonna choose. Nope. You can’t make me. I’m greedy. *sigh* Yeah, I’d like to be middle of that sammich.
MS did a great job! I have a fake lighted pumpkin I pull out for the night. We get a few kids. I only bought one bag this year. 95 pieces. I’ll be stingy until we close to shutting down and then I’ll shovel the candy into the hands of the last few.
Tomorrow is the book birthday for SEASON OF THE WITCH. Appropriate since it’s Halloween.
Happy Hump Day, witches! And may all your tricks turn out to be treats.

Viki, LOLOL!! You shoot your poor pumpkin! That’s just not right, and hilarious! A totally awesome family tradition
I know how much you love Chris
I think Middle Son should buy me a pumpkin and carve it for me. Wait, I shouldn’t even say that–he’d do it but I don’t think I’d like what he carved into it. That kid has a wicked sense of humor.
You should buy candy anyway!

B.E., I don’t want to do a pumpkin, but Wizard’s an overgrown kid. However, I still don’t have one so we’ll see! I may go out and buy as an excuse to get a coffee.
I was being purposely evil cause I know you love Hugh, Viki loves Chris…and I’m having too much fun making you all choose!
Give those little kids dental floss and keep the candy for yourself!

Ashlynn, you did the absolute right thing buying that candy! Don’t forget, you must test it too
My kids carved pumpkins until the left home and kept doing it. No reason to stop having fun, right?

Kat you’re making me hungry! I’m getting a craving for pumpkin cookies, only I put chocolate chips in mine because almost everything is better with chocolate. Except broccoli…
I’m dying of curiosity now! What is your daughter’s costume?

Silver, HUGH CONGRATS on the release (tomorrow) of SEASON OF THE WITCH! Will it be up everywhere?
Wish I’d bought a couple fake lightened pumpkins. The thought crossed my mind once then I never saw or heard from it again.
Have a great release day!

It’ll just be in print at Amazon and for Kindle, KDP Select for now. I put the prequel novella up on all platforms and it didn’t get much traction. I’m experimenting with the algorithms, see what works best. I have digital copies in epub if anyone has a Nook/Sony and really wants to read it. Review copies.
The time to buy the fake pumpkins is now. They’re on sale! (So’s the candy )

She is and I quote “An elven huntress” Lord of the Rings meets Hunger Games and her own personality. She will be carrying my marshmallow cross bow and she will be armed. Halloween is a blast in our house of Drama.
It is really all my and my husbands fault. We got married on stage at a local theater. So the flare for the dramatic in the kids come honestly.

What a great pumpkin – we carved ours a bit too early (I wanted the seeds) and they are already drooping Ah well.
Hope you have a great Halloween (to all the witches) and Uhm, Thor … all the way

I like Thor better, but I have to deduct points because he looks like one of my older brothers (seriously). On the other hand Wolverine is just as nice. Uhh, why do you have to ask the hard questions . Middle son’s pumpkin is amazing, and the fact he did is free hand is even better. My brother (the Thor look-a-like) did one free hand once, but it was an eye and pumpkin or not that thing was kind a creepy, cool but creepy. Happy Halloween!
