October? Books and spiders and Halloween...

Is it really October? How did we get there? The leaves are falling but the sky's still blue. Spiders are blooming... ughghgh! And I spent the morning pulling ivy (and spiders) from the walls of the house, and digging green leaves with yellow flowers (which also have spiders) from round the foundation. Then I curled up on the sofa with a headache and dreamed of spiders.

So, October's the month of Halloween isn't it? That explains the Squidboo challenge over on Squidoo, and I actually got myself a trophy yesterday for posting my October drabbles there. Meanwhile I'm writing October dribbles this year, and trying to make stories in fifty words.

But here's the absolute best ever news about October: Gypsy Shadow Publishing, who published my eBook Refracted, are one year old this month, and they're celebrating by giving one lucky reader a free eBook each day. How cool is that? So head on over to Gypsy Shadow's Birthday Celebration and read all about it. It's not too late to enter, and there's a whole month of chances to win.

Congratulations to GSP! Thanks for the info, Sheila. I entered.

Sorry about all of the creepy spiders. I need to clean our basement. I noticed a lot of cobwebs down there when I did the laundry the other day.

Hi Sheila,
Yes, October is here and I love the colorful foliage but I don't like spiders, yuk!
BTW, I added you to my blogroll ;)
