My Celebration of Halloween

My Celebration of Halloween

I’ve always loved Halloween.  The dressing in costumes, the scaring of children.  But, I absolutely HATE scary, bloody moves.  The movie Jaws had me hiding behind my popcorn.  hiding-behind-popcorn

Now, a book is a different matter.  I can read all the blood and guts you can throw at me, and LOVE it.  So in celebration of Halloween, here are a few clips from a movie that fits the bill for me.  I love musicals, so when the Little Shop of Horrors came out, it immediately became one of my favorites.  

What can I possibly say about these dresses that would make them look even close to appealing.  I bet the singers hated putting them on.  

I just love Steve Martin and he fits this role perfectly.  He looks like he had tons of fun making this movie. 

That sudden realization life just took a dump on you.  

Thanks for enduring my trip down memory lane.  I hope you enjoyed yourself.  Now it’s your time to share.  What’s your favorite Halloween movie?

About Sahara Foley

Bio: Until my husband died on Christmas 2012, I never thought about becoming a writer. In fact, the act of writing a story terrified me. Don’t get me wrong, I loved reading, just never had the knack for writing. The thought of writing dialogue scared the bejeebers out of me. See, Bob was the writer. He wrote stories for years but could never get a traditional publisher interested enough to publish even one. Now I understand why, as they were unpolished outlines. Then, after 30 years together, Bob passed away and my life was turned upside down.

About a month later, I was sitting around my apartment, trying to adjust to the worst event in my life, when a little voice spoke to me. Why not publish Bob’s stories? To be truthful, ever since the advent of self-publishing, I always wanted too, that’s how much I believed in his stories. But I knew I would have to fight him for every little change I made to his outlines. Sorry, honey, but they had to be done.

So, I pulled out the box of stories, dusted them off, and started on a new adventure: The World of Self-Publishing. Boy, did I have a lot to learn. I finally published several short stories early in 2014, then my horror novella, It Lives in the Basement. While I was working on them, I was slowly learning the craft of writing, and getting The Secret of Excalibur ready for publication. Excalibur was my favorite story of them all, and in the back of my mind, I knew I wanted a publisher. One day on Twitter, I ran across a tweet from Creativia Publishing, and that was another game changer for me. I signed up with them in December of 2014, and it was the best decision I’ve made.

One thing I’ve discovered on my new adventure, are all the really awesome and talented Indie Authors. If you find the right community of Indie Authors, all they want to do is help each other. I found that I love promoting them and their books, so that’s how I setup my blog. For readers to meet Indie Authors.

Anyway, enough about me. Here’s all my contact information:

  1. I don’t have a favorite Halloween movie. They’re all scary and I don’t like scary movies. (Believe it or not, I’ve never seen Little Shop of Horrors.) I think this goes back to my childhood when I had a nightmare after seeing some scary programme on TV.
