Halloween Already

Free Today on Amazon

People seem real excited about Halloween this year. Several friends have eagerly carved their pumpkins, only to have them disintegrate into piles of smelly goo. I went to IKEA on Wednesday and saw a young woman (a customer) dressed as a witch. At dinner last night, a girl in the booth across from ours was wearing zombie makeup. And speaking of such, Denver’s 7th Annual Zombie Crawl is happening this Saturday, October 20. I love the address of the website: eyeheartbrains.com.

I thought I’d get in on the act and find some Halloween and horror-related freebies. There were plenty to be had on Amazon. These were the ones I chose.

  Horribly Good Halloween Recipes with Coffee by Billy Taylor

  Hollowland by Amanda Hocking
Hollowland – the first book in the young adult dystopian series The Hollows.. “This is the way the world ends – not with a bang or a whimper, but with zombies breaking down the back door.” Nineteen-year-old Remy King is on a mission to get across the wasteland left of America, and nothing will stand in her way – not violent marauders, a spoiled rock star, or an army of flesh-eating zombies.

  Scraping the Bone: Ten Dark Tales by William Malmborg
Ten dark tales that step into the shadows of humanity that few dare to enter. REDSTONE LAKE – a newlywed couple ventures to a family cabin in the woods that conceals a disturbing incident from the past. REST STOP – a fed up wife runs into terror rather than away from it while fleeing her abusive husband. JACOB’S GIFT – a boy takes a midnight tip to the graveyard to dig up his brother who he believes is still alive.

  The Turtle Boy by Kealan Patrick Burke
School is out and summer has begun. For eleven year old Timmy Quinn and his best friend Pete Marshall, the dreary town of Delaware Ohio becomes a place of magic, hidden treasure and discovery. But on the day they encounter a strange young boy sitting on the bank of Myers Pond, a pond playground rumor says may hide turtles the size of Buicks, everything changes.

  The Deepest Cut by J.A. Templeton
Sixteen-year-old Riley Williams has been able to see ghosts since the car crash that took her mother’s life and shattered her family. Guilt-ridden over the belief that she’s somehow responsible for her mom’s death, Riley is desperate to see her mother’s elusive spirit to gain her forgiveness. When her father moves the family to Scotland so they can all start over, Riley believes her life couldn’t get worse–that is until the ghost of nineteen-year-old Ian MacKinnon catches her purposely cutting herself. An uneasy truce quickly turns into friendship, and soon Riley’s falling hard for Ian.
