Welcome to the Halloween / Election Season where we're all hiding under our covers and hoping that come sunrise it will all be over and the tangerine menace will have gone back under his rock. I don't know about you, but I long for the days when October child safety meant checking the candy for tampering, not checking the news for use of the word "pussy". When the boomers talk about bringing back the "good old-days" I nod along, but I'm pretty sure we're talking about different old days. My definition of good old days was when I didn't have to listen to a year-long build up to an election. So, basically, 1984. Can Back to the Future happen now?
Sadly, Doc Brown has not turned up to rescue me. So I'm forced to devise my own escape plan. It's called books. I'm going to bury my nose in a book or computer and read and write my way through October. In case you wish to enact your own escape plan, I'm offering this giveaway opportunity from my publishing company Blue Zephyr Press. Enter for a chance to win a $75 Amazon Gift Card, one of three print novels (Exile by Karen Harris Tully, An Unseen Current by Bethany Maines, and Perfect Likeness by J.M.
