Guest Post Kristal Shaff

Thanks so much for having me on your blog, especially on such a fun day as Halloween. It’s been a busy last few weeks for me, not necessarily as a writer, but because of my other job as a professional face painter.

This last weekend my son was a part of a two day fundraiser for his 8th grade class trip to Washington D.C. They were doing a haunted school, and of course, I volunteered to help. The theme was zombies and evil clowns. So needless to say, I’ve had my fill of painting zombies and evil clowns to last until next year. I’ve also been watching the return of THE WALKING DEAD (my favorite show), so I’ve had a lot of zombies on the brain.

Zombies..

Brain…

Get it?

Ah hem … Anyhow …

Here are a few of the faces I did for the haunted school. I had a ton of kids to do, so these are pretty quick designs. It was fun to see everyone getting into character for the sole purpose of having fun and scaring the pants off people—and making a little money for their trip in the process.

zomies and clowns

I’ve also been busy as a mom, putting together costumes for my children. (BTW, the zombie on the right is my son.) My youngest is going to be Rainbow Dash, my son is going to be Godzilla, and my oldest, who is 16 and an assistant teacher at her dance studio, wanted to be a Disney Princess for the little girls she teaches. For her, we’ve been sewing the Belle’s blue dress from Beauty and the Beast. Even though she is 16, she tells me, “I love to dress up for Halloween.”

Halloween is a great day to use your imagination. Like reading a book, you not only can emerge into a story, you can pretend to be someone from a story. It’s like a mass Comic Con everywhere … with candy.

Happy Halloween everyone! Have a great night pretending. And when it’s done, curl up with a good book to feed your imagination—such as a great title from Month9Books.

For hundreds of years, dark clouds covered the skies of Adamah, and an ageless king ruled. Those who emerged with one of six extraordinary Shay powers were forced into the king’s army, an unmatched force with inhuman Strength, Speed, Accuracy, Perception, Empathy, and Healing. With the army at his side, the king—a man who wields all six abilities—was invincible and unquestioned in his rule. To most, serving the king was an honor. And for some, it was a fate worse than death.

When seventeen-year-old Nolan Trividar witnesses the transformation of his brother from kind to cruel after entering the king’s army, he vows never to follow the same path. So when his own power—the Shay of Accuracy—comes upon him at the Tournament of Awakening, Nolan conceals his emergence instead of joining the king’s ranks. For years, he traitorously hides his power, pretending to be a gifted scribe. But when Nolan comes face-to-face with a deserter, the man discovers his secret. To evade detection and a death sentence, Nolan escapes with the deserter and flees into a night filled with dark creatures who steal both powers and souls.

Nolan joins a resistance, a village hidden deep in the forest, filled with others who secretly wield a Shay. But his peace is short lived when they discover that the dark clouds, the undead creatures, their own decreasing powers, and even the king, are all connected.
