Monday Blog Game: Happy Halloween!

It’s Monday, which means another installment of the Monday Blog Game.* This week’s topic: HALLOWEEN!

This week, I’m not offering my own take on the subject (you can find my mass-murdered pumpkin post here, if you want to know the weirdness that passes for Halloween fun at my house). Instead, I’m turning the stage over to friend and author Marci Jefferson, who has BIG Halloween news this year:

A Bewitching Halloween Treat

Fall has always been my favorite season. Bonfires and kaleidoscope leaves. Hot cider and pumpkin carving. Giving up trick-or-treating was more difficult for me than relinquishing my belief in Santa. So imagine my delight when we were invited to a Halloween party this weekend! We were so excited: my husband borrowed elements of my son’s old pirate outfit, and I had a witch costume pieced together from thrift store finds. But as we prepared to leave we checked the mail. And found, earlier than expected, my contract from Thomas Dunne Books (an imprint of St. Martin’s Press).

I could not BE more excited! And couldn’t pass up the humorous photo opportunity. Yes, this is me decked out in witch gear, signing my publishing contract with a real quill pen.

And to those who are wondering, there are no witches in THE DUCHESS OF RICHMOND, A NOVEL OF FRANCES STUART, unless you count a few of King Charles the second’s enchantingly vicious royal mistresses! You can decide for yourself when the book is released early 2014!

*The “rules” for the Monday Blog Game are simple – Everyone is invited to play along, and I hope you do! Here’s how: Write something about the weekly topic, either in the comments here or on your blog (if you write on your own blog, link back or comment so we know how to find you!)

    I love the outfit and more still, THE QUILL! Congratulations on your contract. Your book sounds like a juicy read! It’s right up my alley! 🙂

    What a treat! Two of my favorite ladies together. Marci held my hand in San Diego and soothed my terrified nerves when I needed it. She’s an amazing writer and editor. And I’m so lucky to know her. Her journey to publication has been frought with ups and downs, but she’s a golden persistent girl. And that’s why this picture of a beautiful lady both inside and out means so much to me! I’m deliriously happy for her while being a tad jealous of how utterly good looking she is. Prost!

    Aw, DeAnn, you’re too kind!! Thank you!!

    That costume looks strangely familiar, Marcie! I believe my daughter and I were bewitched by you in that attire a few Halloween’s back.
    Congrats on the contract!
    I thought you might share the recipe for some chocolate cookies you made that time. Trying to remember the theme of that long-ago party, Edgar Allen Poe?

      Ha! Yes Cathy! I will never forget that Edgar Allen Poe party or your adorable daughter! But I have forgotten which cookies I made, unfortunately! Thanks so much!!

    Congratulations, Marci – -I couldn’t be prouder!

      Aw, thanks! Just to be clear – are you proud of the witch get-up or the publishing deal? 😉

    Oh my goodness! If that isn’t the cutest witch ever!! I bet you rocked that Halloween party!
    How exciting to get your contract on that very day– and you didn’t even have to use a magic wand. Only your own fabulous talent!! 🙂

      Aw, thanks Janet! Pretty funny that it arrived that day! Though I do so wish I had a real magic wand!

    Hopefully the party that you to which you were referring was the one at the Zoo! It was so great to meet you. You and “Coach J” looked fantastic!

    Yes, Julianne! It was the BEST party ever! Above and beyond, really!! And what a beautiful night we had, too! It was wonderful to meet you! Thanks so much for commenting!!

    Love the picture, Marci! Can’t wait to read your book! I hope you’ll be willing to visit my blog to talk about it.
