DATING- Scary or Not?
Well, being new to blogging I hope I’m going to do a good job for your guys. I was born on the 30th of October, so I wonder - does that make me scary to men? I’m not all too familiar with Halloween being Australian but isn’t the 30th of October known as the Night of Death, or something? Or maybe men aren’t scared of me, it’s all just a conspiracy to annoy single ladies with bad dates by the government. I’m going with the government theory.
Being the obvious lover of romance novels and of course I most certainly adore men, no knocking here at all. I’ve just become super picky when it comes to going out on dates. Rules I prefer to adhere to from now on and hope all single ladies have some limitations:
·The man must be well dressed, neat and tidy or at least be able to move in that direction without too much guidance. ·Must have proper hygiene, no stinky men for me and if they wear a really nice cologne, I’m a s…

Stephany Simmons Halloween Fun With Lian and Figg

Part 1 of Stephany's Story can be read here

PART 2 “How do we get back?” I tried to keep my voice steady, to not have a complete freak-out on Lian who was the only person who might be able to get us back. “We have to be smart.” Lian said, “Everything here is about balance. We were sent here magically, we can get out that way.” Lian’s theory was great, in theory. “The problem being that neither of us can do any kind of magic.” I grumbled. “A minor technicality on this side of the veil.” On the other side of what might have generously been called a road, a pinpoint of white light appeared and continued to grow into an oval about my size. Lian pushed me behind him, ready to confront whatever might be coming through. A figure fell onto the gravel emitting a string of swear words that would have made a sailor blush. “The worst thing about being a ghost,” Boyd stood and brushed off his vertical striped bell botto…

Halloween Fun with S. Wayne Roberts

One Night a Year… S. Wayne Roberts

One night a year... One night a year in most towns in most parts of the world there comes a holiday. No, I don't mean the one where a jolly old fat man squeezes down your chimney, breaking and entering, just to leave you gifts, and of course for the cookies that his wife likely won't allow in the North Pole due to Santa's diabetes. I don't mean Thanks-gluttony, which is where we gather around the table with folks we likely like less than we'd like and stuff ourselves with food in which is itself stuffed with stuff, nor do I mean any of their other holidays which falls on nights other than the one night a year I speak of here. I mean Halloween. Time travel with me, if you will. Now it's not too far, so you can pack lightly. Maybe a change of undies, as we're discussing a night of Ghosties and Ghoulies, but nothing too formal, minimal toiletries and not likely much of the over night necessity. The time was the mid-90s, the place,…

October 2nd, 1932
7:05AM It would be wrong to say that I had the dream again last night. Better to say that it came for me.             Just outside the Ormond Plantation house's porch where I stood the old oak tree seemed to stretch on to eternity. It wasn't the oak I saw in my waking hours, a degraded husk whose bare branches bore only the spindly gray webs of moss, no, this tree was lush with golden brown wood and a top rich with the verdant green array of springtime bloom.             In the dead of night that my dream manifested in, the tree was all that I could see: it was my world. A man stood strapped to the bark, body as black as evening, bare chest pressed against the tree trunk as lines of rope coiled around his back, legs and neck stretched and distorted his athletic form.             The loud whip-crack of leather tore through the air. A crowd stood around the bound man, obscured by …
