All the excitement of the Book Fair and the Coffin Hopping Horror Tour this week. It's a fabulous week for readers and authors.
An old-fashioned Book Fair on this new-fangled technology is the perfect way to spend the day exploring the diverse genres, variety of writing styles, amazing authors.
The Coffin Hop is made for this frightening month of October. Horror lovers are giddy with anticipation for the next scary story leaving them trembling and hiding in a safe place. Enjoy these tours!
I am J.Q.Rose. Today I introduce you to Sunshine Boulevard, a mystery/light horror novella, e-book only. This is the perfect scary story for an October evening.
Rating: 4 stars
I read Sunshine Boulevard in bed and it's a miracle I did not have nightmares. If I were the naked lady in the geranium bush, I'd have been farther-gone--somewhere up North and still screaming. The fact that I read the whole book, however, is a testament to J.Q. Rose's writing. She had me from the first truly weird death to the ominous ending.
J.Q. Rose creates a suspense-filled story that keeps you reading to find out what is claiming the lives of people in Citrus Ridge. I won't give away any secrets, but I will reiterate my review title: I'm NOT moving to Florida...ever ever ever.

What a wonderful welcoming sign to the Sunshine State...NOT! This is the first thing I saw when I jumped out of our truck at a rest area south of Gainesville, FL. It kind of makes one want to jump back in the vehicle and turn north. Let me think about a choice between SNAKES or SNOW...Hmmm...would you believe we chose the snakes?? Yes, we are snowbirds flying toward sunshine and away from the snow....
We are now settled in and looking forward to a fun Florida winter with sunshine, games, and friends. Poisonous snakes are not in our future, I hope!

October is the month for pumpkins and carving jack-o-lanterns. It's also the time for Halloween parties, treats, and scary stories. Today I am sharing an easy pumpkin recipe for you to serve at your next Halloween get-together.
1 29 oz. can pure pumpkin (or use your fresh pumpkin from the garden)
1 12 oz can evaporated milk
1 c. sugar
1 tsp. salt
3 tsp. cinnamon
1 box yellow cake mix
1 c. chopped pecans (or walnuts)
3/4 c. melted margarine
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix first 6 ingredients until well blended. Pour batter into 9x13 greased pan.
Sprinkle cake mix on top, then cover with pecans. Pour melted margarine over top.
Bake 50 minutes.
So now you have your treat for Halloween. May I also suggest a scary story? Sunshine Boulevard is a frightening story for this spooky month of fun.
