What would you like to do during (or by) next October that you are not doing this year?  I’ll go first.

  • On October 1, e-publish Payback’s a Witch, a very quirky urban fantasy novel that’s been on my to-do list for years.
  • On October 10, start publishing Hex and Violins, a sequel to the above novel, as serial novella on Patreon, one chapter every day, with the conclusion on Halloween.
  • Write at least one new short story for a seasonal anthology.
  • Finish writing a ballad I started a few years back entitled “Tastefully Matted and Framed.”
  • Participate in Inktober and draw one sketch every day. 
  • Fall foliage hikes: Franconia Notch in New Hampshire’s White Mountains and Mt. Greylock in western Massachusetts.
  • Have photo taken in a black gown and my Victorian witch hat, use it as my author photo for the month.
  • Spend Halloween in Salem, Massachusetts.
  • Go to Hammond Castle in Gloucester, Massachusetts for one of their Haunted Halloween nights.
  • Go to the Jack o’Lantern Spectacular at Roger Williams Zoo.
  • Make pumpkin whoopie pies filled with cream cheese icing.
  • Host a game night/pumpkin ale tasting
