Haunted Open House Giveaway Blog Hop

Welcome to my buddy Nancy Gideon's Haunted Open House Giveaway Blog Hop.


Nancy Gideon enjoys writing spooky stuff. Vampires. Shape-Shifters. Scary.

I don't like scary. Books by Stephen King and Dean Koontz are not on my TBR pile. I don't watch scary movies. I've never seen Alien. I won't watch The Silence of the Lambs. Just call me Chicken Little. Give me romantic comedy, science fiction romance, romantic suspense--all with humor. 

Scary films abound around this time of year. Do I watch them? Are you kidding? Give me Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin. One of my favorite movies that takes place around Halloween is Arsenic and Old Lace. Cary Grant is a riot, Raymond Massey is delightfully creepy, and the homicidal aunts are a hoot. And I can't forget Uncle Teddy who thinks he's President Teddy Roosevelt and digs another "lock" for the Panama Canal in the basement.

Here's a sneak peek at my new romantic suspense One Red Shoe.




For the second time in her life, Daria Mason came face-to-face with a man pointing a weapon at her. A pervert, with unzipped jeans, wielded a green box knife. Because she’d raced into the restroom without checking out the situation, he now stood between her and the exit.
She was at the end of the proverbial rope. After walking in circles, she finally found a restroom and nobody was stopping her from using it. Especially not someone playing copycat with that guy in the movie who wore one red shoe.
I am having a really bad day, she declared in the don’t cross me voice she used on her brothers. As soon as her words echoed off the hideous pink and black tiled walls and floor, she lowered her voice. You are in the wrong place, mister. Now zip up and get out. She pointed straight-armed toward the door.
       The man shook his head and set the flimsy knife on the counter. Lady, you have more guts than sense. You are in the wrong place, at the wrong time. His voice was even softer as hers. He eyed her with a look so dark and intense it paralyzed her like a hawk froze its prey.


One Red Shoe is available exclusively for Kindle: http://amzn.com/B00FDXRHZA
In January, it will be available in all ebook formats and in print.

  4. I like 'em scary . . . as long as they're implausible. Monsters, zombies, vampires - Bring 'em on. But no Last House on the Left for me. I'm OCD. I have enough to do without having to check in the closets and under the bed every night!
