Haunted Open House Giveaway Blog Hop


Categories: Everything Else


This Halloween, I’d like to pay homage to one of the best horror writers ever born, Stephen King. In particular, I’d like to write a little about The Stand.

For me, a pandemic is one of the most terrifying ideas. There are several things that play into my fear, like the fact that scientists say we are actually overdue for a pandemic. Maybe I’ve watched too many specials on The Black Plague. Did you know that there are some estimates that say it wiped out almost half of the population? It could be the idea that a simple flu, something everyone has experienced, could suddenly turn deadly and rob me of half my family in a matter of weeks.

Some books make you believe in love and some make you feel empathy. After  I read The Stand, for weeks I couldn’t hear someone sneeze without a part of me shuddering. Now that is good writing!

And on to the Goodies! For this blog hop I’ll be giving away an ecopy of The Keepers and a $10 Amazon gift card.

    I messed up and put my answer in the Rafflecopter instead of my e-mail address (sheesh, I never do that normally). Anyway, BROWN-EYED DEVIL by Evan Gilbert is a pretty scary book…

    The Stand was the scariest book I ever read because it was so believable. Something like that could happen any day and right after I read it, there was a ecoli scare out. I was a nervous wreck. LOL
    The scariest movie I saw was the original Night of the Living Dead.
    Thanks for being part of the hop and for the chance to win.

    Thanks for participating everyone! I’m sorry if there was a delay on your comments posting. I’ve been getting over run with spam and my filter went cuckoo and decided to stop all comments.

    I don’t really watch scary movies or read scary books but the scariest book I’ve ever read was “The HIstorian” by Elizabeth Kostova. It was pretty creepy!
    Thanks for the giveaway!

    It by Stephen King and anything by H.P. Lovecraft totally creeps me out!

    Thanks for the amazing giveaway!
