Hello and welcome to my 2015 Halloween promo! All month we’ll be celebrating autumn and Halloween with a different guest author each day.
I hope you can stop by and also don’t forget to visit the main Halloween Page. This year the theme is a haunted diner.
Mechele Armstrong is starting off the celebration today.

A Favorite Autumn Treat: Anything Pumpkin! I love coffee, creamer, bread, cereal, oatmeal, cocoa! The list goes on and on.
Featured Book: The Sixth Cursed Halloween
On Halloween night, Brad settles down to repot his Bonsai tree. After an argument with his girlfriend, he needs someone to talk to. He’s not expecting the tree to talk back. Surprise! Deidre’s cursed inside his bonsai tree. She’s been curled up watching him for years. This conversation’s the first she’s had in centuries.
Brad tries to set her free, but at the end of the night, he loses the ability to hear the woman with the sexy brogue. He vows he’ll do what it takes to get her out, wanting to know the woman behind the voice. He even has erotic dreams about the woman she might be, for the five long years he searches for the saving spell.
Deidre hates men. All of them. Or does she? Brad’s such an earnest hunk, so determined to do right by her. Maybe they have some redeeming qualities – like a sexy, muscular chest.
On the sixth Halloween, a woman from Brad’s life turns Deirdre’s upside down. Literally. That’s not a good thing for a potted tree. Now she’s getting a choice: a life with Brad without her magic or back to the trees, but she can work her curses and take her revenge. What will she choose this sixth cursed Halloween?
She chuckled. “They won’t work. You already know that they won’t. The spell that binds me is too strong for you to break.” Her voice lowered. “You’re holding me. I can feel your hands on me…”
He tightened his grip around the branches. Please let her feel them even more now. He’d keep his hands on her no matter what happened. “We can try…” He grasped at any idea he could. There had to be a way. There had seemed like so much time existed before he’d have to face this moment. And he’d planned to get her out of the tree before she died. Somehow. He had planned several trips to even more impressive shamans next year if these spells didn’t work tonight.
“No. Nothing will work.” An audible breath blew out of her, which he heard inside his head. “Hold me. That’s all you can do now.” She hesitated. Then, plunged on with words.“When the tree passes, I’ll go into a seed. We won’t be together any longer.”
“Where? How can I find you?” He stroked along the twig’s rough outer bark. “How can I track where you go?” He’d move heaven and earth to find her again. There had to be way for him to pick up her location.
“You won’t. You can’t. I know not where I’ll be tossed. Or even what kind of tree. It could be miles away from here. Or next door. You’ll never find me. Especially as I can only talk to you one day a year. It’ll be impossible. I’ll be leaving you, Brad.”
“No. I can…”
“You know it’s true.”
She was right. There were limitations on what he could do. He was only human. But he didn’t have to like the way things were. “It’s not fair.” To find her and now lose her like this. Why had she even started talking to him, if all he was going to do was fail her time after time? First, he couldn’t find her a way out. Now he got to watch her die. “Dammit.”
Another chuckle. “Life’s not fair. Haven’t you learned that by now?”
