10)    scary decorations

9)    horror-themed amusement parks (love them)

8)    pranks (as long as no one gets hurt)

7)    witches (especially their magical powers)

 ​6)    trick-or-treating

5)    horror movies on TV (the scarier the better)

4)  children and pets in costumes 

3)  monsters

2)  the feeling of chills going up my spine

When I came across the Clear Your Shelf Giveaway Hop by Bookhounds, I knew I was meant to participate. I recently had the publishing rights to my story, Weaver of Dreams, revert to me, so I decided to give the story a fresh edit and have the amazing DW Adler Media design a new cover for the book. With everything old, new again, I’m ready to get the previous book off of my bookshelves to make room for copies of the book with its beautiful new cover. So I’m giving away a copy of the book with its previous cover to three lucky winners. To decide if you’d like to enter my giveaway, let me tell you a little about the story:
When guidance counselor Maggie O'Connell is plagued by terrible nightmares, she believes stress is the reason for her torment, but she couldn't be more wrong. Unfortunately for Maggie, in the shadows of her dreams lurks a Dream Stalker who is addicted to the dark emotions produced by her night terrors.

    Zane, a Dream Weaver from another dimension, visits Maggie in her nighttime fantasies to discover there is more than just a Dream Stalker after her. As the man of her fantasies becomes real, Maggie's true nightmare begins. 
Not yet hooked? Read a free preview of Weaver of Dreams. Just click on the book cover to the left.
Interesting in reading Weaver of Dreams? Here are the hop details:
  • The giveaway will run from 8/15/17 through 8/30/17
  • Winners must live in the United States
  • 3 winners will be selected at random by Rafflecopter to win an autographed copy of my story, Weaver of Dreams.
  • Gain entry points through the Rafflecopter entry form below.
