Goodbye September, Hello October! This Week at Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words

Standard

 

Goodbye September, Hello October!

October is here, one of my favorite months!  Time for pumpkins, and hauntings, a thinning of veils, and perhaps of things that go bump in the night!  It’s a time for owls to be hooting as they sound out territories and mates, leaves to begin their spectacular autumnal show, and the plaintive notes of geese high above calling as they migrate south to warmer climes and more welcoming waters.  I’m not alone.  There are so many quotes out there from writers sharing their love of fall and this particular month, including L.M. Montgomery (author of Anne of Green Gables) who wrote:

“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers”.

I’m totally in agreement.

It’s also a time where authors and publishers start to release books and anthologies with a bent towards the paranormal and horror, noting that Halloween and All Hallow’s Eve occurs this month.  So you all know what I’m leading up to….

Yes, several things actually only one of which I’ll bring up this week.

Let’s start with a Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words Horror Rec List.  This might be a short one because, tbh,  I don’t read a lot of horror books myself.  Do any of you?  I read one this week and I’m reviewing it.  It’s by one of the few author’s whose stories continually have a horror/paranormal bent to them.  That would be Xavier Axelson.  See what I found on Monday.  So go through your book lists, your Kindles and shelves. See what horror stories you can recommend.  I can’t wait to read what you all come up with!

Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words Horror Story Recs Giveaway

We will run this all month long in order to take advantage of all the new scary books coming out this month as well.  So leave a comment/rec, along with your email address where you can be reached if chosen.  We will have more than one winner for our gift certificates.  Must be 18 years of age or older.  Also acceptable are spooky paranormal stories!  Ghostly hauntings!  Witchy doings!  You get the idea!  Even throw in a zombie or two!  Contest ends October 28 at midnight.

✒︎Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words is looking for reviewers.  If you would like to review for us, please contact us at scatteredthoughtsandroguewords@gmail.com.  Let’s talk!

 

✒︎And finally, in case you didn’t see our post.  Author B.A. Tortuga needs our help.  She’s very ill and needs our assistance.   There’s a Go Fund Me page started to help with her mounting medical costs.  For the full details, visit the link here.

 

Now for our first week in October, this is what we have for you.  Happy Reading!

  1. I’m not really updated on what’s coming this month, but so looking forward to Jordan L. Hawk’s Hexslayer and LT3P’s Children of the Night anthology.
    I really am not a big fan of horror or scary stories (too scaredy cat! :p ) so I guess I’ll just wait and see what the others recommend. 😀

  2. I don’t read pure horror but I do love paranormal stories and ghost stories. My favorite paranormal series is Jordan L. Hawk’s Whyborne & Griffin series. It is scary at times and also a bit horror-ish. For a ghost story, I recommend Amy Rae Durreson’s A Frost of Cares.

  3. I do love fall, but not horror so much. I have read some, and like paranormal. So I’ll offer up several good ones with ghosts or spirits:
    – The Ghost of Buxton Manor, by Jonathan Ferrara (also a nice YA)
    – PsyCop series, by Jordan Castillo Price (great paranormal mystery sereis)
    – Hellsinger series, by Rhys Ford (ghosts galore)

    Like

  4. I’m going to keep it short since this is easily something I can go on about when October rolls around =) My rec’s are:
    Bastard by Devon McCormack
    Buried Desires 1 & 2 by Ofelia Gränd and Amy Spector
    Silent Woods by Ofelia Gränd

    Like

  5. Let’s see … some horror readings … all I can have in my head (in related to LGBTQ titles)

    Those I’ve read
    – Magpies Lord series (K.J. Charles)
    – Hainted (Jordan L. Hawk)
    – Vintage: A Ghost Story (Steve Berman)

    Those I’m looking forward to:
    Not yet at the moment, maybe later after I browse through publishers list I can find some spooky/horror reads
