Making A Halloween Wish - #Cover & Title #Reveal #paranormal #romance

Today's the day! My sweet, Halloween-themed paranormal romance short is having its cover and title reveal. Yep, I kept the title under wraps too. But today I can finally show the world! Ta-dah!

Isn't it beautiful?! My husband says it makes him think of toffee-apples, which is appropriate to the season. To me, it's all the colours and feel of autumn (or Fall to my US peeps), with all the sweetness of the romance and a hint of the paranormal. And I'll let you in on a secret. This is one of four I plan for a special collection of short stories. When will you get the others? Keep an eye out in 2015 for my winter solstice tale! But more about Hallow's Eve first...


Twelve months ago, Hal's world crashed and burned, taking the love of his life with it. He's waited all year for that one special night when the souls of the departed come home, hoping his candle will summon back one in particular to heal his broken heart. But the forbidden knowledge he's learned could call something far worse, and put more than his own soul at risk...


Like Hal, I've waited a whole year to share this, having written it last Halloween. And what is a Skiffy Rommer doing writing paranormal? Well, in the past year I've written/published cyberpunk and YA paranormal, and I have decopunk and futuristic UF coming. I've been stretching my writing muscles and exploring other genres. It's been fun! And although Hallow's Eve is my second paranormal release, it was the first one I ever wrote. I hope you all enjoy it. To celebrate, there's a rafflecopter giveaway below, open internationally until the end of October. And here's the prize. A Pentagram necklace and six jasmine-scented, glittery tea-lights to tie in with the story.

You can also bid for a copy of Hallow's Eve and a bundle of other goodies as part of the charity event Scream! For the Cure HERE (Restless In Peaceville will also be in one of the prize bundle. More details at the bottom of this post). Or pop by the LRC yahoo group HERE on the 14th for their Witches, Warlocks and Wizards day where I'll be sharing an excerpt and it's part of a huge giveaway, or the Facebook Embrace Your Madness Halloween Party on the 25th October (unfortunately I won't be at this one due to BristolCon).

In the meantime, check out my hosts on the tour to learn some interesting facts and inspirations for Hallow's Eve, including a magical recipe from one of the characters, how being an analytical chemist helped with a spell, and what the significance is of All Hallows' Eve.

In-between, we’ll also have guest posts on the blog from different authors and bloggers talking about their personal struggles with cancer, some who’ve battled the disease themselves, and some who have witnessed the ongoing struggle through someone else. It’ll also be a forum for people to talk about their experiences and maybe share some uplifting stories as well. Check out the official Scream! For the Cure blog for more details!
