I post on Monday with an occasional random blog thrown in for good measure. I do my best to answer all comments via email and visit around on the days I post.

Oktoberfest Blogfest, Gift Give-Away And a New Look!
It's time. I'm having my first blogfest. The reason? This month, on the 29th, I celebrate my fourth year blogging. AND I'm so close to having 300 Random Followers I just HAVE to CELEBRATE!
So here's the deal. The theme, obviously, is Halloween. On October 26th your challenge is to write and post, in 300 words or less (okay if it goes over no big huge deal) a real life Halloween/ghost memory or a fictional story. If you can work the number four and/or 300 into your story that would make it even more special!
To celebrate four years and 300 Random Followers I will put the names of all those who participate in my bloghop into the proverbial hat and on the 28th YOUR name could be drawn.
The winner will receive this! An ARC of Jessica Bell's book THE STRING BRIDGE scheduled for release November 1st, DOGSLED DREAMS by Terry Lynn Johnson, AND a tatted (by me) bookmark.
Join in the spooky Halloween fun, and spread the word.
I'd love to read YOUR story.
Add your name to list below and be eligible to win!

This sounds like a really cool blogfest! I really love Halloween!ReplyDelete
This sounds like fun and I'll probably do it anyway but, out of interest, is the draw for US residents only?ReplyDelete
Excellent face-lift! :o) xoxoReplyDelete
Hope you join in Tisha. Thanks for stopping by.ReplyDelete
I'm taking the plunge Sarah and opening this to the world. GASP!
Well, I hope the world finds you.ReplyDelete
Awesome. I do like a good Halloween story or two! ;-) I've signed up.ReplyDelete
PS: Facelift = wunderbar! xReplyDelete
Peni, so far so good.ReplyDelete

Congratulations on the followers, Bish, you so deserve it!ReplyDelete
Fantastic blog fest idea - if I have a spare moment to pen a Hallowe'en story, I'll join in! Congrats on the blogaversary, too, and the followers!ReplyDelete
I'm terrible with this stuff, but the word count sounds doable, so count me in. I knew there was something different about the blog. :)ReplyDelete
I'm not sure if this will work out for me yet, but I will think about it this week and decide. It's always fun to do a blog fest.ReplyDelete

Thanks Mel. Lillie Maho is where our guest house was, tucked in between Big Maho and Francis Bay. It's where I walked the beach many a late night as a brooding teen-ager.ReplyDelete
Well, I don't know about deserve, Sangu, thanks.
Oh I hope you can join in, Talli.
Thanks J.L.! I'll keep reminding us of the day.
Nancy, hope you do, the more the merrier.
What a cool idea for a blogfest.ReplyDelete
LOL I've been following your for a while, but haven't had a chance to visit in months. Thanks for saying 'hi' on my post today. :D
Okay, Bish, I'm going to try. No guarantee that what I write will be any good, though.ReplyDelete
Good luck with hosting your first blog hop.
This is great and Spooky too! Should fun. The face-lift is very cool, Bish.ReplyDelete
I'm going to have to think about this one. I'm not very good at writing anything spooky.ReplyDelete
Cool! and i hope you get your 300 followers soon!ReplyDelete
BTW, come drop by my blog to claim your AWARD!
I LOVE Halloween - so, of course, I'm in!! And the new blog look is great ~ :)ReplyDelete
You are welcome Stina! I'm glad I got directed to your blog.ReplyDelete
Yeah Angela, spooky kooky, have fun.
Thanks Lee, I'm looking forward to reading your contribution.
I hope you come back Patti.
Thanks for the award, Nutschell and thanks for signing up.
I'm expecting great things from you Donea...a dog dressed up as a little imp perhaps?
Great idea, Bish! Don't know if I'll be able to enter the contest. (I already have Terry's book and Jessica's CD - just wait until you hear it!) Bet you hit 300 long before that date, though.ReplyDelete
You are always stopping by and I appreciate it - I will do better in the future to reciprocate.
Love the new look.ReplyDelete
And congrats on being so close to 300. October will be a crazy busy month for me so I'm not sure I'll be able to enter the blogfest :(
Yay! Happy October! And what a fun idea. I'm going to sit the blogfest out, however. I may be traveling then...ReplyDelete
Thankfully, I already have an ARC of String Bridge!
That's a great idea but I feel like I don't have any Halloween stories. I'm going to have to think about this!ReplyDelete
Yay Bish!! I'm so happy for you and your blog--it's such a nice comforting place to be. Congrats on your followers, each one well earned!ReplyDelete
Love the new background!
