#Bookgiveaway, a Haunted Walk, and a Ghost Tour

Character:      Savannah Webb
Series:           Webb’s Glass Shop Mysteries
Author:          Cheryl Hollon

Hi, Savannah here. I'm deep into preparations for Halloween. I live in a cute Craftsman bungalow in a section of town that attracts Trick or Treat visitors from all over town.

The whole neighborhood gets into the spirit by hosting the Annual Haunted Hike on the third Saturday of the month. The hike leaves from the intersection of 13th Avenue and 13th Street North every fifteen minutes from 6:30 until 8:30 pm. This family-friendly Haunted Hike is a one-mile guided walk tour that takes approximately an hour to complete. Friendly, leashed dogs are permitted on the hike.

Guides will lead visitors down my neighborhood's creepy alleys and brick-paved streets to old homes and landmarks where costumed characters will tell spooky stories.

Another popular activity is the Ghost Tour of St. Petersburg. The company offers nightly tours through Halloween and beyond. Do you believe in ghosts? Attendees will discover what lurks in the shadows of the Sunshine City with true ghost stores and real haunted houses. Find out where they buried the bodies. 

I'm definitely going this year. What's happening in your town?

Etched in Tears releases on November 28, 2017 and is available for pre-order on AmazonNookKobo, and all your favorite bookstores. It is published by Kensington Books 


About Etched in Tears

When a famous glass artist is murdered at his own exhibit, deadly secrets are put on display, and it's up to glass shop owner Savannah Webb to see through a killer's cover.

Celebrated glass artist Dennis Lansing is returning to St. Petersburg, Florida, for an exhibit at the world-renowned Salvador Dali Museum. His unique style of embedding document images in his art is at the vanguard of contemporary glasswork. But as Savannah's first boyfriend and a former apprentice to her father, Dennis's return home has her reflecting on the past--a trip down memory lane that takes a dark turn when Dennis is found murdered at the museum with an old reference letter from her father in his pocket. A search through her father's records sheds new light on Dennis's history, but it seems his present life wasn't so transparent either. Now, with a gallery of suspects to consider, it's up to Savannah to figure out who fits the mold of a murderer.

  7. That sounds so fun! I wish our town had fun things like that. We go trick-or-treating with our daughter and that's about it. Our street doesn't get trick-or-treaters so we just leave a bowl of candy on the porch and let them take what they want. I'm happy to come home to an empty bowl so I don't eat it. haha!

    I live in a really small town so not much going on but I live about an hour away from Salem MA where Halloween is celebrated. My favorite holiday is Halloween not just because it's awesome but also because I am Wicca.

  31. Our public library had a huge Halloween party last night and my daughter was able to take her 3 1/2 year old daughter but Trick-or-Treat is scheduled for Tues. Oct. 31st in our town and I will probably take her. Our church also does Trunk or Treat and this has been very successful in the past few years. Different church members park their cars and hand out treats from the trunks of their cars. It is a safe environment and parents really appreciate this.
    Thanks for a chance to win your book.
    Blessings!

  32. We have nearly 300+ who come to our neighborhood for Trick or Treat. We love to see the little ones in their costumes but it still makes me wonder how teeny little ones can eat the treats. Our family decorates our yard for the season and brave the weather to hand out goodies which consist of pens or pencils. It's amazing the reaction of most of the kids, with remarks of "I needed a pencil/pen for school." robeader53(at)yahoo(dot)com

  33. Halloween is usually pretty quiet here. Nothing special happening in town. All the little ones seem to be inside at parties or somewhere anymore. Used to be fun to see them. Thanks for the giveaway of Cracked to Death and looking forward to Etched in Tears.
