#Witches by Eliza March

Banner created with MyBannerMaker.com

This time of year brings out the kid in all of us. I'm always amazed that one of my best friends who is highly educated, extremely professional, and analytical all year, tries to drag me to every haunted house in the county during the month of October. Her house is decorated with ghoulish severed heads and eeeery music plays when the doorbell rings.

When I was young this was the time of year I looked forward to most. The school parties and the trick or treating were something I anticipated all month. But usually by the time the Halloween arrived I was sick with my first winter bug. I love seeing the little ones in their costumes now. What a collection of choices there are, from super heroes to cars! I remember the year my teenage daughter gathered a group of friends and dressed up as a hundred and one dalmatians. The next year, with a smaller group, they dressed up as dice.

Now I like this season for another reason. I'm crazzzzy for witches and warlocks. Love the stories and the concepts. Just the words associated with them make me happy. Cauldron is an awesome word. Eye of newt sounds so mysterious. Carved pumpkins lit with candles have taken on a new look. They're almost artistic in variety. (My husband carves a mean pumpkin.)

My paranormal menage, Witch of Air and Fire, isn't your typical witch story. But the heroine is a witch and she does have a sassy familiar. There are also some warlocks...but that's where the similarity stops. This is about a hidden power and an irresistible connection between characters. In the end, you'll ask yourself what is real and what is fantasy.

#posting #rant Facebook and me. Eliza March

You should probably visit my Facebook page. I seem to do all my ranting there lately. I'll give you the link so it's easy for you to find me if you choose to follow me...or whatever one does on FB. Stalk, friend, post?

That is my friend page where only I can only have 5,000 of you, and yet I never seem to be able to find all of you when I want you.  Then there's the Professional Page here:

Which is even worse, because not all of my friends from my personal page are following me on this page. That means I can't find you from there. And even fewer of you seem to be able to see this page. I'm very confused.

Here https://www.facebook.com/authorelizamarch/app_100265896690345
...is where you can sign up for my newsletter so you don't have to stalk me elsewhere...I can send you everything you want to know in my Quarterly Newsletter, otherwise stay here. I usually Blog sometime during the week. Looks like you got lucky. It's just a bunch of nothing, today.

Thought for Today

Spend your love unconditionally. It will return to you tenfold. ~~~Anonymous

The imperitive word in that sentence is 'unconditionally'.

So often advice, proverbs, sayings all suggest similar ideas: 'Do unto others...' 'Love thy brother as thyself...' 'Pay it forward...' 'You reap what you sow...'

All great ideas, all good advice...as long as you remember to 'give' in all ways 'unconditionally' you won't be disappointed.
