  19. Halloween Hop! I have always been fascinated by food in literature. To this day, when I think of Hemingway, I think of how well he described food. The man would write up an appetite, that's for sure! But I digress... as far as the Hop goes, my favorite scary movie is Pumpkinhead and my favorite horror novel is The Haunting of Hill House.

    Happy Halloween!


  20. Thanks for the giveaway and Happy Halloween !

  22. Awesome site. What a fascinating concept for a blog. I'm impressed that you can find so much to talk about. And funny that this has come up. In a discussion just yesterday about flash fiction (or more specifically, the details left out of flash fiction), my friend said, "it's not important what they had for breakfast." Apparently, my friend is wrong :)

    Getting ready to read your review of Pigman.

  24. Hello! (((((hugs))))) LOVE the music on your blog!

    It’s so awesome to visit your lovely blog today on this Halloween blog hop. I think this is an awesome opportunity to meet other authors! I’m joining your blog and I hope you’ll join mine, too, so we can learn more about one another.
    My favorite monster movie is Night of the Living Dead and I’m dressing up as a mime. Mime is one of the most ancient forms of theatre, appearing around the time of the Greek tragedies. I hope to perfect the art and technique of portraying a mood, idea, or narration by gestures and bodily movements. The only problem is…that I have a big mouth! LOL. It’s so nice to meet you!


    P.S. I’d love to connect with you online!

  25. Very cool giveaway. It is super important what our characters have for breakfast. They are eating a lot in my middle grade novel. They are people too. :-)

    Thanks for the visit and comment over at my place.

  33. Hi Shelley,
    Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. This blog hop is fun!
    Happy Halloween!

  34. Hello all and welcome to BWATE? I just finished Jane Jones: Worst. Vampire. Ever., and she had a bad experience with a tuna sandwich...but you'll hear about that soon enough! Please feel free to comment here, on Twitter, or Facebook what you're reading and what they're eating whenever you like - anytime's a good time for FoodFic!

    And to everyone who has kindly thanked me for hosting this giveaway: Thank YOU for checking out my series!

    @Darkfallen & Greta - Thank you for having me; lots of BODIES stumbling in!

    @Jel - Yes, it's me ;) And I think "Settling" reads much better after "Solid" since you've gotten to the know the cast a bit, but many readers have been happy going out of order, so it's up to you!
    @Jennifer - I would be happy to guest post! I'll contact you privately to talk details.
    @Emma - If I could've written any novel, it would've been the Harry Potter series, so I'd have known how it would end. The wait for the conclusion was brutal!
    @Aniko - How funny that the 2 picks you mention here are the same ones I picked out at your blog!
    @Paul - It's important to me, at least, but I don't know how much that counts for - my two cents, I guess? ;)
    @Chrizette - You'd still get both books! The final edition of "Solid" was decently different than the ARC.
    @Chrissy - You could very carefully cut red electrical tape into the shape of lips to seal yours as a fail-safe; that's my ridiculous and surely completely unhelpful suggestion ;)
    @Robyn - Great minds think alike!
    @Golden Eagle - Thank you! Ever popcorn can wear many outfits ;)
    @Cortney - I think a good book should make your mouth water, too!
    @Jayde - Is Predators with an S anything like Predator singular - the one with Ahnold?
    @Deana - Definitely visit some of the Zompacolypse hops - great giveaways!

    I'm off to see how much snow has fallen, but will shovel my way back!

  35. These are great books for the giveaway. I would love to win them!!

  48. Hello fellow hopper!

    So glad I was able to visit your site! :) I am visiting from the Coffin Hop--I am # 63-- and happy to take part in this hop also. This Halloween I will be dressing as a swashbuckling pirate. Two of my favorite scary books are The Witching Hour and Let the Right One In. A fave movie is Bram Stoker's Dracula. I love this time of year--we get to indulge in a bit of darkness. Please hop over and visit me if you like at where I am giving coupons to your choice of my books and you can enter and win a NOOK! Thanks and hope to see you there!

  52. Shelley, Thanks for stopping by my blog. Your blog subject matter is fascinating. Who would ever think to search for and write about food within the content of novels. I love it!

  53. I'm here from the blog hop, and I love your blog!

    My favorite scary book is IT (scared the crap out of me when I was a kid), movie that horrified me most was Rob Zombie's remake of Halloween, and I did not dress up this year, because I'm lame. Maybe next year ;-)

    Happy Halloween!

  54. Thank you again to Darkfallen and Greta for putting together this great event, and thank you to everyone who's interested in my work enough to enter to win it!

    @Rabiah, Aik, Chrizette, Maria, buddyt, Dinda, Judy, sablelexi, dinky, and debbie: Thank you so much for coming back again and showing your support!

    @Mary, Tonya, Francine, April, Kulsuma, BlackWolf, ruslady, AliasLucia, Jacque, Nicole, Emma, and Gloria: Thank you for giving the Solid series a look!

    @J.C.: Every day I have a different favorite; today is the cashew toffee ;)
    @xlacrimax: I think no matter what covers the future brings, "Solid" will always be my favorite!
    @Carmen: Everybody thinks about it, they just don't realize it ;)

    And last, but certainly not least, @Miki:
    I will also contact you directly to get your shipping information.

    Happy Recover-From-Too-Much-Candy Day to you all, and I'll be back with another giveaway on November 17th!
