All Hallows' Eve Party - Are You Game?
Here in Australia, we don't really celebrate Halloween. The English brought many traditions with them when they settled this country, but Halloween was not one of them. In the last few years, because of it's mind-boggling popularity in America, some intrepid souls thought they'd start Trick or Treating here.
Never took off.
We just don't like our kids wandering from house to house receiving sugary treats from strangers. Over here, it's bad ju-ju. Besides, it being late October, the weather is too hot for anyone to be running around in funny costumes. We'd rather be at the beach in a different type of costume.
So, what am I doing advertising an All Hallows' Eve event? Well, I happen to be part of a wonderful group of authors - mostly American - to whom Halloween is a significant occasion. I'm going along with the fun.
Starting Oct. 29th, as per the promo pic above, over 24 authors are throwing a Halloween party on facebook to which everyone is invited. Not only will you have a chance to be introduced to some fabulous new reads, but there'll be games to enjoy and scores of prizes to win.
