I will admit I love being frighten, but in a controlled environment like going through haunted houses, watching a ghost story in a dimmed theater (but no horror for me), or being tossed around on a roller coaster.
Well, the time of year that's perfect for scaring people is upon us. Yep. Halloween. So much fun for kids and adults. A holiday like Valentine's Day that's made for giving candy! But the only holiday for costumes. I love dressing up and pretending to be someone or something else. Even when it's not that holiday. A couple years ago, I dressed up as a dark angel for a conference. Here I am with the wonderful Dianna Love.
(It's law. If you write paranormal or romantic suspense, you must wear black. HA!)
I firmly believe authors write stories as part of their wish to be someone else, to live a different life and to see how it all turns out. Of course, always with a happily ever after.
Unlike many authors (most are introverts), I'm not afraid of meeting strangers, even while I'm dressed in black wings. I love doing book signings because I get to entice readers to my little spot with candy and fun swag. *evil grin* And woe to the reader who asks me about my books. Often the person runs screaming away (or buys a book) to shut me up.
All of that miscellaneous information leads us to a question: In honor of Halloween today, what was your favorite costume when you were a kid? An adult?
Me? I loved my Bug Bunny costume. Thin plastic mask and one piece jumpsuit. As an adult it jumped from Frankenstein to a werewolf and back until I bought the wings. Love those wings.
