2015 Nancy Gideon's Haunted Open House Hop Graphic

This week, I’m participating in author Nancy Gideon’s Haunted Open House Blog Hop!


I’m not a fan of Halloween

There, I said it. I don’t like to be frightened. I admit to being the first one to cover my eyes at a gory scene in a movie or when a zombie pops up out of nowhere on the TV screen. I do NOT intentionally look for the scariest movies to watch or the bloodiest book to read. Participating in a real-live Zombie Walk is NOT on my bucket list.  So I’m puzzled by my fascination with Nancy Gideon’s By Moonlight series. Book One, MASKED BY MOONLIGHT, is a gripping tale that begins in the darkest corners of New Orleans with no shortage of evil and frightening scenes. I’d never read any story with  shapeshifters, but from this first book I was hooked. Why? Well, I’ll tell you – Nancy Gideon’s beyond-awesome story-telling talents brought her characters to life in such a way that never scared me, never made me squeeze my eyes shut, j ust made me keep reading about Max, a hero to die for, with extraordinary talents, and Cee-Cee, the woman who loved him in spite of those talents. I cared about those characters because I became a part of their life and I wasn’t afraid. Who knew? Thank goodness, the author kept writing about these should-have-scared-me-but-didn’t books. The series is 5-star Plus!

So today it’s my pleasure to help announce the Release Day of UNLEASED BY SHADOWS, Book 10 of the By Moonlight series.  Follow Nancy Gideon’s Haunted Open House Blog Hop for Halloween chills and thrills with giveaways!

And join Nancy at her Haunted Open House for more tricks and treats!

    I’m with you, Lora Lee. I don’t like to be scared, either. I also agree about Nancy’s fantastic writing that sucks in the reader. I’d never read vampire or shifter novels until hers. Great stories!

    • I don’t mind being a little bit scared by a book or a movie, but I’m not too keen on blood and gore – scary fun is best, as Kathy said, and I love to see the little kids dressing up and getting excited about Halloween.

    MASKED BY MOONLIGHT looks like a great read even though I hate to be scared!

    • These will intrigue you and you’ll love them. The strong characters will keep you reading until the last page.

    I don’t really like being scared either. I really don’t like “horror” as a genre, in book or film form. But I LOVE Halloween! I think it is the fun and the freedom of it and it is scary, but safe.

    • Scary but safe is a great plan. You’ll be safe reading Nancy Gideon’s By Moonlight series. Scared…maybe a little bit, but oh, so thrilled by the sexy hero, Max. Sigh……!

    I don’t like getting scared at Halloween Haunted houses and such but; I do like a good horror movie or like The Walking Dead show.

        I love books like that. Thank you.

  • Kathy Heare Watts

    I love decorating with pumpkins, spiders and witches, but all in fun. I don’t do scary, I detest horror. I want it to be fun and playful. Happy fun only.

    • Scary can be fun, too. Thanks for stopping by, Kathy.

  • I’m with you. I don’t like being scared, but I thoroughly enjoyed Nancy’s book. Makes me wish I had more time to read! Thanks for sharing this blog post!
