Apocalyptic Halloween Facebook Party Today!

Fantastical Fridays

a paranormal celebration

I usually post all my WOOHOO! news on Mondays, but I’m posting today because this Monday I had a fabulous guest interview with time-travel author, Angela Quarles. Anxious to get to the party? Check out the Apocalyptic Halloween Facebook Party dets with author Sam Cheever down below.

I won the CRW Author of the Year Award!

I had a great time at the Colorado Romance Lover’s Tea. Every year we celebrate our anniversary and our published authors and this year was bigger and better than ever. And I had a fabulous surprise, I won CRW Author of the Year. This is amazing to me as I’ve seen several people win this award and they are all amazing authors. I truly wasn’t expecting to win as there are many more great authors in our group, but there I was, up at the front, receiving my award!

And then I had more good news this week.

The Dark Huntsman placed fifth in the International Digital Awards. WOOT!

International Digital Awards Contest Header

This contest has lots of entries, so I’m pleased as punch to have made it on the list. The cool thing about this contest is it is focused on books that are not print based. You can have POD, but not be regularly published. I love this because most published contests are still slanted toward regular print books. They even have a “Best Trailer” category. Digital rocks!

Here are the other books that placed in my category:

~~Paranormal~~

**Novel**

1st Place: AHUNTER4RESCUE by Cynthia A. Clement – Publisher: Self-Published

2nd Place:  FINDER by Connie Suttle – Publisher: SubtleDemon Publishing
3rd Place: DAWN OF A DARK KNIGHT by Zoe Forward – Publisher: The Wild Rose Press
4th Place: CLOUD DUST by Connie Suttle – Publisher: SubtleDemon Publishing
5th Place: THE DARK HUNTSMAN, A Fantasy Romance of the Black Court by Jessican Aspen – Publisher: Abracadabra Publishing

And now…on to the Facebook Party!

Here are the deets, directly quoted from An Apocalyptic Halloween’s Event Page

Are you a fan of Sam Cheever’s books? If so make sure to join us Oct. 24th to help celebrate Apocalyptic Mojo!

What do a time traveling witch and a Sorceri bounty hunter have in common? Not a damn thing! Well…except for some sizzling hot love mojo!

The Epoch Mages and the Sorceri Bounty Hunters are ALWAYS on opposite sides of any issue. They H-A-T-E each other. But when a rogue witch decides to take over the world using flesh-eating zombies, Ardith and Draigh have to work together to stop her. And though they’ve twisted themselves inside out trying to deny their blistering desire for each other, they soon learn they’ll need to work together to accomplish what many before them have failed to do. Yep, it’s all gonna be downhill from there!

No Halloween is complete without a good Apocalypse! Zombies, vampires, witches and aliens, the Apocalyptic Romance Clubhouse will have them all this Halloween. On October 24th, from 11 AM to 11 PM CST, join Sam Cheever and some of your favorite paranormal authors for a full day of great prizes, delicious frights, and sexy snippets.

Wrestling with a Round Robin

Moonday Mania

a blog for…flying between the pages

Today, at some point, on Selena Laurence’s facebook page, you will discover a story.

Not just any story.

This one is a Facebook Round Robin written by some fabulous romance authors, and it is going to fly from Selena’s blog on Monday, all the way to Holley Trent’s blog on Friday. I’m Thursday’s Child, so you’ll see my piece then. And, I’ll be posting the sections on my Facebook page as they come up. Oh! And there are prizes, of course, so you get to enter for those as well on my facebook page and all the other authors pages as well.

We decided to write the story in advance, that way none of us had to worry about getting our section on a day when life fell apart. Which seems to be happening to me a lot. I’ll be blogging about that on Thursday when I give my paranormal release update on Prince by Blood and Bone. Writing it ahead of time meant that I still only had one day to get my piece done so I could send it to Holley Trent.

It was a little scary at first, but I had to get my section done, no matter that I wasn’t sure where the story was going. I knew where it had started and I could see the threads twisting through the pages. Time to take three author’s story and make it my own. Then, despite where I thought it should go I had to hand it off to Holley. Oh, the worry! Oh the concern! Would she pick up my threads and take them where they should “ahem” go?

I won’t know until Friday because, like you, I haven’t seen Holley’s section.

I think Holley had the toughest portion of the job—making the story gel at the end. I realized this when I got the first three pieces of the story. Each author had added a new twist, and I needed to get them into a place where Holley could pick it up and wrap it up. Especially since our sections aren’t too long. We’re all used to having a lot of time to develop a plot and this was only about a page and a half. No space for deep thinking or long term plots. The action needed to take place now, and with romance that can be tough.

So check out Selena’s Facebook page HERE and read Monday’s post. Tuesday you can read Lisa Swallow’s section, and Wednesday is Rebecca Raisin. Mine is on Thursday and our finale is Friday with Holley Trent. And of course you’ll be able to find them all on my page https://www.facebook.com/JessicaAspenAuthor. Have fun and Happy Holidays!
