8 days til H day

Hey fans! 8 more days until Halloween! Today, I have a few freebies and cheapies for the young ones! Teens and younger... Some Halloween stories for you!!! Oh but wait, all the way at the end of this post, under the kiddos books, will be something for mom and dad! So look out! Enjoy!! 

The Death of Death
Death guides usually have rather normal names like John, Mary, Harry, and Jessica. And even ones not quite so normal, like Bartholomew or Ambrosia. They also have the most interesting tales behind their deaths. But one particular death guide has a few problems: she cannot remember her name or the details of her demise, and thus has no story of her own. One fateful night, she meets a young girl that may change her death forever. 

Inspired by the works of Tim Burton and Neil Gaiman, and in the style of Children's tales of old, The Death of Death is a tragic, yet sweet little tale about loss and acceptance. 

Suitable for ages 12 and up.

Trick Or Treat Or Murder (A Mellow Summers Paranormal Mystery)

Halloween has arrived and so has everyone’s favorite ghost: Rachel.  Invited to a Halloween party, Mel and her friends hope to enjoy a night of fun.  The party soon turns sour when a man turns up dead during a murder mystery game.
While Detective Shorts is busy questioning everyone who attended the party, Mel and her friends start their own investigation.  Soon they find themselves digging into secrets best forgotten—the hostess’ mysterious sister and a lost will—and an underground tunnel that the murderer used to sneak into the mansion.  Will Mel be able to solve this case before the night ends and the killer disappears? 

Haunting At Heidelburgh Mansion (A Hot Ticket Short Story) (Hot Ticket Trilogy)

When twelve-year-old Juliet Robinson isn't invited to Cindy's Un-Halloween Party at a possibly haunted mansion, she can't resist crashing. But after her best-friend, Lucy, disappears, Juliet has to find a way to get her friend back from the headless bride -- or risk losing her friend forever.

Haunting At Heidelburgh Mansion is a 35 page, middle grade short story. Also includes the first chapter of HOT TICKET, a middle grade mystery.

Spinner's Spooky Surprise (BookBugz Adventures)

“As Snug as a Book in a Bug” is the premise of BookBugz, a series of children’s books focused on the adventures of a group of friendly bugs throughout the year. Spinner's Spooky Surprise represents the month of October. Discover how Spinner helps her friends celebrate Halloween in this second book of the series. Every BookBugz Adventure includes a page to decorate with your own colors. The first book from the author, Jingles Celebrates the Season, is also available. The books are published under the pen name K.C. Snow and are available in both electronic and hard copy versions.

Throughout the series, the bugs demonstrate friendship, provide education, and encourage interactive exercises for young readers.

Tommy Goes Trick-or-Treating (Bird Brain Books)

This children's picture book, with full color illustrations by artist Noelle Giffin, is for kids 3 to 6 years old.
Tommy is a mischievous little woodpecker who loves to fly to the edge of the forest and watch the people in the nearby suburb. One evening, something strange and exciting happens--people emerge from their houses wearing costumes and carrying colorful buckets with smiling faces on them. What's even crazier is that they shout a special codeword while standing outside of each house, and are given delicious-looking candy.

Tommy simply must join in the fun. He and his friend, Michael the raccoon, fashion their own costumes and head off to join in the festivities. Thanks to Tommy's knock-knocking beak and Michael's quick paws, the duo is able to heist many a candy bar from the unsuspecting homeowners and children.

But are they missing out on the true spirit of Halloween? There's only one way to find out: join Tommy and Michael in their trick-or-treating adventure, in this special holiday edition of the color-illustrated Bird Brain Books.

Punkin Jim

Punkin Jim is a story of Halloween Hullabaloo!

"Punkin Jim" is about the transformation of a humble little pumpkin from a pumpkin patch into a mischievous Halloween spirit. The ordinary pumpkin is ripe for Punkin Jim to take over because he is sad because Autumn Wilson didn't choose him to be her jack-o-lantern.

After becoming Punkin Jim, he wants to gather his friends together, Haddie the Witch and Skelly the Skeleton to help stir up a little Halloween chaos. Before getting into too much trouble, Punkin Jim wants to try trick-or-treating. Punkin Jim gets disappointed in his friends because they just don't seem to understand Halloween completely. Eventually, Skelly's and Haddie's Halloween hullabaloo gets a little out of hand. Punkin Jim worries about Autumn, the little girl that didn't choose him for her jack-o-lantern.

Just when monsters, ghouls, vampires and ghosts are about to spoil Halloween, Punkin Jim realizes the truth. He has to figure out how to save Halloween. With a little help from some Halloween magic and a surprising turn of events, he just may be able to fix things!

Children's book: "Halloween Costumes" (A Gorgeous Illustrated Children's Picture Book) (Beginner Readers eBook series for age 2-6) (Children's short stories collection)

Always on Halloween children dress up as scary characters that are similar.
I thought maybe it's time to change!!!
I saw in parts of the world that children dress up as well as happy and beautiful costumes. So I decided to change the approach. I suggest everyone to dress up in cute costumes like superhero!!!
Both of my parents work and have friends from different professions and each of them has a unique outfit.
In this book I wrote those professionals and under each image I wrote the outfit name.
Children starting to read alone, learning the names of professionals and may agree to dress like one of the colorful characters and not in scary costumes. I hope you'll like the costume I chose.
I'll be glad to hear about it and of course would love to get more suggestions.
Enjoy and dress up.

The Devil's Gate, the looming barrier that keeps the demons and nightmares at bay every night of the year except for Halloween Night, comes crashing down. An army of steam powered automatons, led by the devil himself, finally gets the better of Jack of the Lantern, the man who tricked the Devil and gave us the jack o' lantern for protection on the darkest night of the year. With their steam-powered soldiers, the demons no longer fear Jack of the Lantern as they pour out in to the world.

Even though his parents raised him with stories and old traditions if Ireland, John O'Brien never truly believed, especially not old of Jack of the Lantern. One Halloween night, John learns the truth when the demons come for him, leading an army of steam-powered soldiers. With these steam soldiers, The Devil and his kin have finally gotten the better of Jack of the Lantern and broken through the Devil's Gate to wreak havoc, mischief, and misery throughout the world.

With the help of his cousins, Moira O'Neil, heiress to the special ritual that keeps the Devil's Gate closed, and Daniel McRory the inventor, John must take up the mantle of Jack of the Lantern and create a new legend great enough, and terrible enough, to scare the Dark Lord and his dark legions back into their dark realm. He must become Halloween Jack.

In comes the ambitious Town Mayor, Robert Gentry, who lifts the ban on Halloween. He has the hopes of creating a Halloween theme park and a haunted house to increase more money to their town. But then terrible things start springing up from all corners of the town. The sight of pig’s blood splashed on their doors and the threat from the pick axes thrown on their front door as well as other malicious acts, causes panic and concern in the hearts of the people that perhaps the ban on Halloween should just continue.
But a Halloween ban does not sit well for three young boys who are determined to put an end to the threats that are rising against the townspeople.
