Autumn truly begins to fall upon us, the world accepts the eerie and the macabre as commonplace, and the month culminates in the absolute best day of the year: Halloween. This year, my expectations are so low they're hidden beneath a thick swath of mucky, dead leaves, but that doesn't… Continue reading October Freebies and Spooky Good Deals on eBooks
Today was actually very busy for me, but I slept in hardcore this morning.
