In case you’ve ever wondered, THE LEGEND BEGINS blog was created around a central idea: THE LEGEND OF THINGS ON STICKS. Although it’s branched out into discussing legends in all forms, this was the motivating factor.
THE LEGEND OF THINGS ON STICKS is a short story that I wrote for a competition. Held earlier this year, the contest required participants to write an original story about a monster. Although I didn’t win the competition, I did end up loving the scum bag monster I created. Most authors do tend to do that sort of thing, and I was no exception to this rule. I mean, he’s just so endearing once you get to know him.
So this October, I want to share this original story with you and make it part of the Halloween festivities. It’ll be posted for consumption—right along with the candy corn and other treats collected during your yearly trick or tricking tour of the neighborhood. (Do you think your neighbors really believe all that candy is for the kids?) And if that doesn’t get you jazzed, maybe this will:
We are giving away over 50 copies of books during the month of October!
How about that for exciting?
I’ve tried to select authors that run the gamut of what scary means. Consequently, the novels comprise the paranormal, suspense, thrillers, serial killings, ghost tales, vampires, witches, curses, shrunken heads, full-on mindblowing horror and a monster with a penchant for toasted marshmallows.
Time is ticking away and we’re almost there! So carve your pumpkins, ready your costume, and get that spot on the couch cleared off for you to sit a spell and discover some great reads.
Oh, and Things on Sticks says hello.
