This is my first time participating, and I'm really excited to be part of it!



In Germany Halloween isn't a traditional holiday but more and more people celebrate it now. It's rather popular with the kids. ;-)


So, in honor of the Howloween Blog Hop I’m giving away an e-copy of Seizing It or Silver Lining or the Animal Magnetism Anthology (winner's choice)  to two winners. 

Here’s what you do:
Contest:
~ I'd love if you'd join my blog but it's not mandatory to enter the contest.

~Leave me a comment. Tell me which book made you hide under the bed or leave the lights on.
~Leave me an email address, so I can contact you!

I’ll announce the winners Tuesday afternoon/ evening by email and on here. Please respond to the email!


Hope everyone has fun during the hop.

  1. Hi! Already a follower, so... the book that made me run and hide was the encyclopedia. The "S" volume. It had these pictures of skeletons, animal and human, that just creeped me out. As a kid, I loved reading the encyclopedia, but I couldn't stand to read the "S" volume! My knowledge of things "S" is deficient to this day.

  2. Thanks for doing the hop!

    I don't often get scared of books (or movies). Not sure why. Psychological stories, though, that get under your skin and into your brain...well, they're a different story ;)

  3. Oh, this is tons of fun! I've not heard of this Blog Hop before. Since I've read all your books, I'd like to post a recommendation to all who have not read Silver Lining. Folks, this book is simply a wonderful read. A tear-jerker for sure, but the love the characters have for each other shine!

  4. I slept with a light on reading "Zodiac." It was a true story and they never caught the guy!

    Happy Halloween! Thanks for doing this.

  6. I could not go to bed after reading The Shining. As a matter of fact, I was so terrified that I stopped reading "scary" books. Until I stumbled upon The Silence of the Lambs.

    I was done after that--no more! Happy Hallowe'en and thank you!

  9. Hi, My name is Michelle and I'm a book addict. there has only been one book in my 45 years that Halfway thru I decided that I really didn't want to know what exactly (though I had some idea) was gonna happen and remember it for the rest of my life...I never stop halfway through a book so that in and of itself was kinda traumitizing. It also inspired my first FAN letter...never did get a reply. The book? Pet Cemetary by Stephen King...I just knew that little boy was gonna die and it was gonna be BAD, BAD all kinds of BAD. Thanks for hopping, chellebee66(at)gmail(dot)com

    1. That was a creepy book! I started to read it at age 12 but put it aside for a few years. When I picked it up again (and finished it), I was left really disturbed.

      Thanks for participating!

  13. Hello,
    I was most terrified when I was a kid. "Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark" and the sequels always managed to keep me up.

  16. I can't read or watch anything scary any more but I use to. When I read Salem's Lot and It by Stephan King I slept with the light on for a while and some nights I ended up in my sister's bed.

  18. I started reading Stephen King books when I was in junior high school. Salem's Lot was one of the first. I stayed up late reading it and I will never foget thinking that I heard something scratching on my window screen. Needless to say, I had a little bit of trouble getting to sleep that night. Didn't want those vamps to get me...lol.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  24. I don't really read scary stories, but a movie that creeped me out when I was a kid was about crabs I guess. I only saw one part of it, but a giant sand crab pulled a kid away and killed him and ate him. Traumatized me for life there. I had a hard time eating crab for a while there.
