So. I had the super-creepy delight of contributing a tiny-terror of a tale to this awesome anthology. It's called HALF-MINUTE HORRORS and it has a truly stellar line-up of authors contributing all these deliciously spine-tingly, skin-crawly micro-stories all designed to freak you right out in 30 seconds or less! Authors like Lemony Snicket and Neil Gaiman and RL Stine and James Patterson and Margaret Atwood and and and... me! Cool huh? What's even cooler is that proceeds from the sale go to First Book, a nonprofit organization that puts new books in the hands of children from low-income families. Super super cool.
Check it out!
Even cooler still, if you go to the HALF-MINUTE HORRORS website, you can get all sorts of info, sneak previews, and -- here's the really fun part -- upload your very own scary tales!
And -- if you happen to be in Toronto during that scariest time of the year, you can come out and meet me and a bunch of other cool H-M HORROR authors on Saturday October 31, 2009, 2-4PM at the Gladstone Hotel in Toronto (1214 Queen Street West) for the HALLOWEEN DAY FAMILY CABARET Presented by World Literacy Canada http://www.worldlit.com/
So if you live in Toronto, put on a costume and come to the event. And forward this invitation along -- especially to those with kids 8 and up.

Scare ya there! BOO!!!
