Why didn’t the skeleton like the Jack-O’ Lantern? No bones about it!
Yeah, well that’s what you get for allowing me to write Halloween jokes, okay!! I’d like to think my haiku is a bit better. I’ll just bet that if I combined haiku and Halloween, I’d stand a chance of hearing some screams.
of laughter, of course, or maybe a ghoulish grin or two?
In honor of National Read a Book Day, I present for your approval… the COVER REVEAL of my next book!
Thank you to Chris Graham for the amazing 3D version of my cover! If you contact him, perhaps he can scare something up for your books… http://www.thestoryreadingapeblog.com
This is a “Halloween story in words and pictures” of how the “creatures of the fright” occupy their time leading up to their big night. Naturally, when the pressure is on, they do a ‘fang-up’ job of tricking the little beggars into believing that their bark is worse than their bite.
Each year, the “Mistress of Halloween” (they say, she’s a dead ringer for my sister, Lorraine) proves herself worthy of the title of Diva of Decorating and transforms our front yard into sea of spooky. The little ones have been to known to stop smack in their tracks when greeted by snakes slithering on their path but it’s the life size rubber rats, with gnarly fangs that really give them pause. You would think with the disembodied heads hanging around, they wouldn’t stand a ghost of a chance of getting near the candy but we run out every year. Of candy, not kids…
Watch for the forthcoming announcement of BooKu, Halloween haiku coming to life soon on Amazon in both paperback and Kindle formats.
