She has also provided a great example of what kind of story they are looking for:
The Warlock’s Halloween Revenge
This Halloween, Bob the witch - well, actually, he was a warlock, a squishy warlock - wanted a very bland costume. He was tired of the other witches (or warlocks) typing at him. In the past he'd been a frenetic werewolf, a blue vampire, the main character from his favorite movie Free Willy, even a rusty fairy. But did anyone ever say, “Crippled costume, Bob!” to him?
No, they didn't. They all just slept at him, and one time they made him wear a staircase on his back all night.
But this year, it was going to be different. This year he'd have his poorly deserved revenge on all 520 of the other witches (and warlocks) in his coven. Because he had a spell to create the ultimate costume. He'd found it in Burger King, under a vase. The local tribe of Rastafarians had assured him it would work.
Bob gathered the ingredients he needed for the spell - a stalker, an Area 51, a pinch of peanut butter, and a dash of Scotch. He mixed them together in an old Toyota and spoke the enchantment:
"Bubble, bubble, captures and trouble,
Banana burn and almond bubble,
Mists of rack and tense rocks,
Give me something to knock their socks!"
There was a high-speed flash of light. And promptly, Bob turned into a diamegnetic Carrot-Top.
He smiled into the mirror. It was going to be a baking Halloween.

Hurry on over to her blog and check it out. I know I will be submitting one of my Sinister Shorts!


  1. Super fun idea! Too bad I don't have a monster story to submit. :)

  2. OMG So I came to say thank you for the post and couldn't find you on my blog roll. I wasn't a follower anymore for some reason, what the heck? So I quickly re-followed you and I'm back up to speed! It must have been during the great blog-out I had earlier.

    So thank you for sharing about the contest! I'm so excited!

    And people, there is no limit to who can win. If I like 10 stories, then I'll choose 10 hahha. I'm willing to clear up some space for extras I like.

    1. Glad to have you back! I have narrowed my stories down to 3 so I will submit my favorite.
