trick or treat (belated)

So, this year… I had planned to post a treat on Halloween (see below). Instead I (and over 800,000 other CT residents) got quite a trick. As of this writing, no power at my place since late Saturday night (the 29th). Which also means no heat — at the start of November in New England. After a couple days, I was offered a place to sleep in a house that still had power, heat — and (nirvana) hot water. The only thing it lacked was an internet connection, which came back today. The same day that DMLA is offline due to a DDoS on our hosting service. Yes, a little too ironic.

I’ll be over here counting my blessings. Like — it’s not January, so the pipes have yet to actually freeze at my house. And I have generous hosts who are very understanding (and like my cooking). And I’m getting a lot of manuscript reading done as I had luckily just put some new things on my e-reader.

Here’s the treat (and me with 3 bags of candy that I didn’t get to hand out due to the outage)….

Open Road Media is making available as e-books Trick or Treat and 7 other classic titles from YA horror writer Richie Tankersley Cusick. Her dedicated page on their website has information about each title and links to Kindle, Nook, Sony, and other formats.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Richie Tankersley Cusick including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author’s personal collection.

  1. I was wondering if you’d gotten hit by that storm! Glad to know all’s well.

  2. I hope the freezer will be less of a Halloween-themed experience this time around…

  3. Yikes, glad you have a place to stay!

  4. Sorry you’ve lost power and haven’t gotten it back. We didn’t this time…but we certainly did with the hurricane. So lots of sympathy and let’s hope the weather doesn’t play any more tricks on you (or me!)

  5. Hopefully soon all will actually be well. Or at least better. I will pray she gets her power back soon. Along with the rest of us still lacking it. If her house is anything like mine right now, I’m glad she has a warm place to sleep at night.
