October is my favorite month of the year because I get to celebrate Halloween for four weeks. This year, Halloween is even more special because I’ve been promoting my book, Georgia Spirits and Specters. The wonderful folks at the Norcross Ghost Tour had me out for a book signing two weeks ago. The weather didn’t cooperate with us, but we still had fun. And, I got to tell ghost stories to a troop of wide-eyed Girl Scouts.
Things really ramp up this week since we are just seven days away from Halloween itself. On Sunday, October 25, I’ll be signing books at Oakland Cemetery during their nighttime Halloween tours. Oakland is Atlanta’s oldest cemetery, and my favorite spot in Atlanta. Tours are sold out for this year!
On Monday the 26th, I’ll crawl out of bed in time for a 7:35 call-in to the Bill Bailey Morning Show on Fun 101.1. You can listen to me on their website. Catch me again on the air on Friday, October 30, when I stop by the Fun 101.1 studios to hang out at 8:00 a.m.
If you’re in Savannah, stop by Magnolia’s, a fabulous gift shop at 137 Bull Street in the historic district. I’ll be signing books there from 1:00-3:00 p.m. on Saturday – Halloween!
Before all the promos, I’ve got to put on my dancing shoes one more time. Guinness gave the Thriller world record to Mexico instead of DragonCon, despite the fact that they only danced for two minutes and didn’t do the full choreography. Guinness can’t keep us down, though. A lot of the D*Con Thriller alumni are gathering to participate in another record for the most people worldwide dancing at once. I’ll be in full zombie mode!
Happy Halloween, everyone!
