Happy Halloween: Costumes Gone Wild

Halloween, it’s not just for candy anymore. Now it’s a legitimate excuse for exhibitionists to wear lingerie in public and call themselves the Raunchy Referee because their underwear has stripes. Not that I’m complaining…

I don’t mean that in a typical guy way (well, maybe a little), but as long as you’re not hurting anyone, I don’t care how much of your treats you want to show off on the scariest night of the year. What I find most interesting about the annual slutty costume phenomena is how weird some of the “sexy versions” are getting. I was in the local costume store the other day and came across the sexy versions of Freddy Krueger and Jason Vorhees.

Whoa.

My mind started to wander, and I began thinking of future sexy costumes that may follow this trend and become viable options in the future.

Have you seen any weird sexy costumes? Got any suggestions on what next year’s sexy costume should be? Chime in. I’d love to hear from you.

The month in review and overcompensating

I’ve been having trouble keeping up with the blog…surprise, surprise. Ever since I started a blog many years ago, I’ve gone through spurts of white-hot intensity where I’m dropping posts 3 times a week, responding to comments, and just being That Guy. Then, the inevitable drop-off comes. I don’t have much to say. I’m distracted by a writing project. I just lose track of time. Then I happen to notice the date of my last entry and succumb to guilt akin to a dieter blacking out and waking up in a bakery, having massacred all the cupcakes. Like now.

It’s been a pretty busy month, and I’d like to catch you up on a couple of things. So, see, this is how I apologize, by overcompensating. That’s healthy, right?

My New Hangouts

Because I’m so great about timely blog entries here on my own site, it only made sense that I’d agree to write for TWO OTHER blogs as well. I’m now a regular contributor at Sleuths, Spies, and Alibis – a group of YA Adult Mystery writers who blog on all topics related to crime, literature, and kids (what a combo). I also contribute to The Lucky 13s – a group of debut YA authors across many genres who all have pub dates in 2013.

There’s a lot of good stuff at both of these blogs, so be sure to check them out.

Recent Interviews

In case you missed them, I participated in a couple of fun blogs/interviews for Aimee Salter and Daisy Whitney.

In Other News

I’ve finished a draft of a YA Urban Fantasy novel and hope to get that revised soon so I can tell you more about it. And I’m halfway through a YA Paranormal¬† novel (really it’s Horror, but I’ve been told the P-word in more aesthetically pleasing than the H-word nowadays). Again, more on that soon.

That’s all, folks. For now.
