I’m also participating with the webcomic about my cat; you can view that post at http://avalon-lion.blogspot.com/ Thank you for stopping by my site!

Goodie #1 - Boooo-opoly

Boo-opoly is like the classic Monopoly game but with a horror theme. It’s spooky! It’s ghoulish! It’s a scream! Players buy favorite Halloween properties, collect haunted houses and trade them in for full moons. Sounds easy enough, but add fright fees, bats in your belfry, or get caught soaping windows and it becomes a little more difficult and a lot more fun. You may win the Jack-o-lantern carving contest or eating Slimy Spider Tacos at the Monster Mash. For 2 to 6 players. Ages 8 and up.

Goodie #2 - Drowned Sorrow (paperback)

Spooky Book - Drowned Sorrow
A spooky tale about a New England village where water has become a supernatural element that can think and kill. Drowned Sorrowhas been called ‘the scariest story of the year’, so be careful what you are getting yourself into.

To get you in the mood, check out the reviews for Drowned Sorrow.

Goodie #3 - The Strangers Outside (e-book)

Spooky Short Story - The Strangers Outside
Two sisters return to their remote holiday cottage after a day at the seaside, but little do they know they’re being surrounded. Soon after their arrival, the girls will come face to face with The Strangers Outside. When the assailants make their intentions known, things take a shockingly terrible turn and an intense battle for survival will begin. The Strangers Outside has now also been turned into a film.

Goodie #4 - Gummy Body Parts Candy
