Each day of the month at witching hour (12 midnight, EST), Nicole and I will feature a different historical fiction (and a few fun non-fiction!) read that has a Halloween tie-in. Because let’s face it – history is fraught with some scary stuff! Join us for chats on the history of vampires, Queens who died in gruesome ways, what it’s like to consult psychic mediums for historical fiction research, and scary personages like Elizabeth Bathory and Jack the Ripper. It’s going to be an exciting month filled with all things spooky history!
And of course for Halloween, there has to be some treats! Leaving a comment throughout the event on any Harrowing Historical post (here or on Linus’s Blanket) will enter you for a chance to win one of several awesome Harrowing Historical prize packs.
