The 7th Annual Halloweensie Contest

It's that time of year again... time for pumpkin lattes! But the thing I look forward to the most this time of year is Susanna Leonard Hill's Halloweensie contest. This is the 7th year for the contest and my 3rd time entering.  

The Contest: write a 100 word Halloween story appropriate for children (children here defined as 12 and under) (title not included in the 100 words), using the words candy cornmonster, and shadow. (Candy corn will be counted as 1 word.)  

I got out my thinking cap, added dust and cobwebs, and came up with the following story. I hope you enjoy it. 




Killer Candy Corn Costume
80 words
(78 with candy corn as 1 word) 

King sized pillow case? Check! 
Flash Light? Check! 
Monster costume? Check! 
I’m all set to trick or treat! 
First block done. I’m a little hungry. I’d better eat some candy. 
My whole pillow case is filled with candy corns. My favorite! I could eat them all day long. 
What’s this large shadow looming over me? 
Oh a candy corn costume. 
“Nice costume kid. That’s my favorite candy.” 
Oh cool! The mouth opens really wide. 
YOMP! 
“Humans, my favorite candy. BURP!”

Check out the other great entries into the contest here


Thanks for stopping by and have a Happy Halloween!

Great Valley Bookfest

This past weekend I spent a very short time at the MacLaren-Cochrane Publishing booth at the Great Valley Bookfest. I didn't get to sign any books. But I did have this special visitor drop in while there.

2017 Orange County Children's Book Festival

Sadly I couldn't attend the Orange County Children's Book Festival. But thanks to my publisher, my book did.
