I'd just like to say...
Go do the Monster Mash, or watch a spooky show on the Travel Channel. You can also go on a ghost tour, read a really creepy (but amazing) book *cough* ANNA DRESSED IN BLOOD *cough* or, ya know, do that whole trick or treating thing :)
Aside from being my absolute favorite holiday, Halloween this year means something else:
Query season for ASTRAL has started!!! Keep your fingers/hands/arms/limbs crossed for me, friends!
Oh, and one last update - to stay in the Halloween spirit for the month of November I've decided to switch up my original NaNo plans and focus on a pretty sweet (I'm using "sweet" in the "awesome" sense, not the romance-y sense) ghost story that's been sitting in the back of my mind for a little while. Most of it is still pretty secret, BUT the parts I can divulge are:
A) This one's only got one POV.
B) The Big Bad is NOT going to be Casper (e.g. not quite a friendly ghost)
C) It takes place in the confines of a boarding school (one of the twists is how this is handled...bwahaha)
D) Multiculturalism (something I am really passionate about!) plays a big role
E) Danger (both real and...not-so-real) lurks around every corner!
That's all you get for now :P
