Halloween Character interview and Giveaway ...

Today I'm welcoming Yuki, Calvin, Emma & Simon  from E.J. Stevens Spirit Guide series to For What It's Worth today for a Halloween character interview & a giveaway! Taking over the interviewing duties for me is the Ringmaster....



Ringmaster: We are here today with the characters of the Spirit Guide series. Thank you all for joining us!

Yuki: Am I the only one that thinks this is weird?

Calvin: Is everyone okay?

Yuki: How did we get here? Are we at the circus?

Emma: Oh em gees, that dude is wearing a top hat...and TIGHTS.

Simon: I like his jacket. Very retro. Think he'd share his tailor?


Emma: *rolls eyes* You can't possibly want to look like that guy. He has a HANDLEBAR MUSTACHE.

Yuki: Shhhh! Don't diss the stache. I think it's, like, alive or something.



Ringmaster: Legend of Witchtrot Road, the third book in the Spirit Guide series, is releasing this month. How do you all feel about that?

Yuki: Okay...I guess.

Emma: You guess? We won this round. Girl power, yo. *knuckle bump*

Calvin: I think we helped to make our town a better place. Together.

Yuki: We do kind of rock. *grinning*

Simon: Is that jacket custom? I would look absolutely gorgeous in a jacket like that. The vertical stripes would show off my scar...and we all know how much the ladies dig guys with scars.


Ringmaster: Halloween is just around the corner. Are you all excited?

Yuki: *shudder* No. I almost lost my sanity last Halloween, so no I am not excited. I'm freaking terrified.

Emma: But we do have a plan. It'll be okay.

Calvin: Don't worry, Yuki. I'll always find a way to protect you.

Simon: Ahhh...Halloween. A night of Tricks and Treats...

Emma: Ewww...gross!

Yuki: Old man, how do you always manage to make things sound so pervy. Ugh!

Ringmaster: So you have a fun night of Trick-or-Treating planned?

Emma: Is this guy for real?

Calvin: *raises eyebrow* I don't think he's listening to a word we say.

Yuki: How did we get here again?

Simon: Does it matter? We're not in any danger.

Yuki: Well, that guy is creepy. I want to go home.



Ringmaster: What is your worst nightmare?

Yuki: See! Creepy. Creeeeeeeeepy.

Calvin: Yuki? Are you okay? Where are you?

Yuki: Cal? I'm right here.

Calvin: Yuki! I can't find you! Oh god, Yuki...

Yuki: Cal, I'm right here. Crap, is that a flying monkey? Wait. Are you bleeding?

Emma: I think I'm going to be sick. That guy is wearing a dead animal on his face. I hope it didn't suffer...

Yuki: Emma! Is it a flying monkey? I think Cal was attacked by a flying monkey. Help me! He's bleeding...

Simon: Great. Clowns. I HATE clowns.




Ringmaster: Mwahahahahahahaha! Happy Halloween.



Legend of Witchtrot Road (Spirit Guide #3)



Surviving agitated ghosts, irritated witches, angry werewolves, and the horrors of high school has never been so hard.


The night of Samhain may be behind them, but Yuki and her friends have only begun to face the challenges of their paranormal gifts. Tensions are rising--in the pack, at school, and within their tightly knit group of friends.


The tragic death of Wakefield High student Dylan Jacobs has emotions boiling over. The J-Team, Yuki's arch nemesis, have turned the entire football team against her. They claim that Yuki is a witch and blame her for the death of their fellow teammate. Will Yuki be able to solve the mystery of Dylan's death, and the legend of Witchtrot Road, before tempers flare and things turn violent?

  2. Not much scares me actually in real life that is. I have trouble watching R rated movies and horror books are terrible with my imagination. I do not find clowns creepy.

  3. Ha! "I almost lost my sanity last Halloween"

    I can relate to that.

    Super fun interview. I'd definitely want to get away from that ringmaster asap!

  5. Thank you Karen for having me here today at For What It's Worth!

    Tanya: Awwww, thank you! More Spirit Guide fun coming early 2012. ;)

    Deranged Pegasus: Circus clowns give me hives, LOL. So. Scary.

    Missie: So glad you liked it!

    Cherry: I love Halloween and enjoy getting my spook on, but admit there are some things that terrify me...and not in a good way...like clowns...and zombies.
    Ugh! Total. Zombie. Phobia.

    Love the Halloween comments. Keep them coming! :)

  6. Thanks for a fun post, if only Halloween was such a big event here in England ...... apart from the clowns of course, they are far too scary.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Petty: Agreed. Clowns = Scary

    Another creepy non-Halloween entity? Mimes. Seriously, they are like the distant cousin of clowns. Creepy.

    I LOVE E.J.Stevens (and Halloween), but you can keep that creepy clown lol ;O

    ReplyDelete
  9. I love Yuki! And yes, clowns are terrifying. I think it's because the horror industry adopted them as mascots so early on. As if they werent' scary enough, clowns are a well-known character type in certain horror movies. Yeep!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Wonderful giveaway. I want these books!

  11. MAD: Awww, thank you. You rock!

    Tiger: Isn't Yuki fun? I love spending time in the Spirit Guide world. So many fun, quirky characters.

    Wicked Leanore: Thank you! :)

  12. lol, yes!!! There is nothing fun about Clowns, the one on Poltergeist and It, *shivers* have freaked me out for life :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. The globins.

    ReplyDelete
  14. This was entertaining and highly confusing. If you let me win and send this to ME I may understand better! The author did psychology... This suggests to me that it will be scary!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Jolene: I agree. The clown from IT definitely gave me the creeps.

    Lena: Ah yes, goblins. Denizens of the Otherworld tend to give me shivers. Tales of ol' Bloody Bones still sneak into my dreams.

  16. My daughter is very scared of clowns and always has been. I am more scared of anything that is bloody.

    ReplyDelete
  17. @Maureen - Agreed. Bloody is bad. Though zombies scare me as well since they are bloody too.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Love the character interview. I can't wait to read this book. Thanks for the great giveaway! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Ooooh, more fab comments.

    Maureen: I have a confession to make. Blood makes me pass out, especially my own. When I enter the local blood bank, every phlebotomist tries to look busy...or slinks away. I am THAT bad of a patient. So bloody monsters? ABSOLUTELY TERRIFYING. Until I pass out.

    Alex: I have a major zombie phobia. Really. Their shambling, putrefying, brain eating forms will always instill a sense of terror and revulsion. By comparison all other paranormal baddies (Vamps, Weres, Ghosts, Reapers, Demons) are just fluffy, little bunnies. Though admittedly some of those fluffy bunnies have very sharp teeth. ;)

    Marie: So glad you enjoyed it. Happy reading!

    Zombie phobia...blood phobia...clown phobia... Gah! I am beginning to sound VERY neurotic. ;)

  20. Clowns are very scary....they shouldn't be allowed.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I am not, I have never understood the whole clown thing! Maybe its because I never saw It! I always hate how on Halloween everyone thinks it is necessary to jump out from behind something screaming, scares me every time.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Thanks for the chance to win. I keep seeing this series everywhere but I have not gotten a chance to start it yet. Hopefully that changes soon because it looks uhhhmazing!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Absolutely loath clowns! There is just something not right about big floppy shoes, big nose, all that make-up, and the whole clown mentality. And yet I love harlequins but I think that is because they are sleeker in appearance.

    As far as what scares me on Halloween, sadly it isn't much anymore. Most of the fear left when I stopped being a kid. :(

    ReplyDelete
  24. Creep clowns are definitely creepy and should be outlawed LOL at least the toy size, they just traumatize too many of us adults. Thank you for the fun interview and giveaway opportunity.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I admit this is the first I've heard of this author.

  26. Oh look. The comments had babies!

    Vivien: Truly. There should be a law. *knuckle bump*

    GirlOnFire: BOO! *giggle* Sorry, I couldn't resist.

    Kara: Good luck with the giveaway!

    WhatTheCatRead: Ah, Harlequins. True, I love shows like Cirque de Soleil...until the actual clowns show up. There's something creepy about barrel overalls and the tiny car. ;)

    Denise: I agree. The little clown dolls (especially the ones with porcelain faces) are SOOOOO creepy...and tricksy. They can hide anywhere.

    Pabkins: Glad you stopped by!

  28. I'm definitely not a fan of creepy clown but otherwise I like scary things so and I love Halloween so I can't think of anything that scares me.

    ReplyDelete
  29. lovestodive: Ahhhh, Simon. He would look hot in a paper sack. ;)

    whitewolfreads: Isn't Halloween fun? It's my favorite time of year!

  30. Oh my gosh, yes, I'm scared to death of creepy clowns!!! I'm also scared to death of haunted houses :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. I hate creepy clowns, always have. I think I watched Stephen King's IT when I was little. Nothing else (except spiders) scare me. I can sit an watch horror movies and laugh but clowns just send a chill up my spine.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Julie: Oooh, haunted houses! Haunted locations intrigue me.

    June: Eep! Spiders. *twitch, twitch*

    Thank you all for stopping by! :)

  33. This series is on my TBR. I can't wait to read it. Great interview. :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. I love watching scary movies on halloween. :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'm not scared of too much, but I have to admit that I love watching Silent Hill because that movie just gets to me. When that sound comes when the darkness falls, it's like nails on a chalkboard...I think I'm going to put it on right now. I am really looking forward to these books, I have She smells the Dead, but I still have to get the second. Thanks for the contest!! Artesia at comcast dot net

  36. Loved the interview! There's not much that really gives me a fright, but I love turning off the lights and climbing in to a cold bed with a scary movie. They don't make 'em like they used to, but The Grudge, Silent Hill, and The Ring usually get me pretty jumpy! Of course, there's also visiting haunted houses - even though I know the ghosts and ghouls are just actors, there's still something extremely terrifying about not really knowing what awaits you in the dark!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Yay! More comments...

    Aine: Thank you! Karen is a fab host.

    Kayla, Jkrowyn, + Shannon: Scary movies? My dog was sleeping on my lap while watching a very scary episode of Supernatural...until Hell Hounds jumped at the screen. At the same moment, my dog jumped up, barking and teeth gnashing an inch from my face. Totally freaked me out. My heart races just thinking about it.

    Thank you all for stopping by! :)

  39. Creepy clowns can be very creepy but I don't like anything with ghosts. Like the Paranormal Activity movies I can't do them at all. It's funny because I can read about it but can't watch it.
