Prepare for one spooky book giveaway!

Spooktacular Author's Halloween Giveaway

 

A Book Giveaway for Halloween Lovers

If you’re like me, the arrival of fall means a special kind of joy. The fall of crunching leaves, trees sprinkled with brilliant golds and crimsons. School buses, candy aisles, and party preparations.

But this Halloween there’s one more thing to get excited about: the Spooktacular Authors Book Giveaway.

This year, 50+ authors (including myself) are offering at least one free book and one Halloween-themed gift. That means anyone who enters has a chance to win one of at least 100 prizes. And that’s not even counting the grand prize from this book giveaway: $150 USD in PayPal cash. Now, if you’re in a country with a lower value currency (like I am), that’s a nice chunk of change.

But the best part? Entry to this contest is 100% absolutely free. That’s right. This book giveaway is totally free. So, what have you got to lose?

To enter, simply sign up with your email address. You also have the option of following some of your favorite authors (*cough* *cough*) on several social media sites in order to gain more entries. And, you know, increase your odds of winning. Here’s a taste of what’s up for grabs in this book giveaway:

20 Cool Pirate Items You Should Get This Halloween

Ahoy! Are you looking for splashy decor for this Halloween? Well, avast mateys! I’ve got a secret for you: pirate items make everything better.

 

Did you know? Every time you make an Amazon purchase from one of my links, you’re supporting this site.

From Peter Pan to Treasure Island, some of our most beloved stories feature battles with pirates. (You can get a copy of Treasure Island for your Kindle or Kindle App here, by the way.) Even though they’re villains, there’s something deeply compelling about the pirate life. Exploration, adventure, loot, and fame, what’s not to love? (Scurvy, fleas, and evil deeds aside, of course.) This Halloween, don’t settle for another boring pirate costume. With the items on this list, you can deck out the whole house with pirate-themed goodness. So grab your sea legs, because we’re going on an adventure!

1. The Salty Dog Metal Sign: Pirate Decor Wall Accent

Mermaids AND pirates? This hand-made sign is off to a fantastic start. And, it’s eco-friendly, to boot. It’s made of 24 gauge steel and has preset holes to make it easier to hang up in your cabin, den, or dorm room. Though you can’t tell from the picture, the image is glossy and baked into the metal so it won’t chip. It’s also got rounded corners so you don’t have to worry about accidentally cutting yourself. This pirate sign weighs about 1.2 pounds and measures about 16 by 12 inches.

2. Corkology Pirate Coaster Set

Keep your coffee tables nice and spiffy with these pirate themed coasters. Each coaster is made of cork, and they’re double-sided, too. One side has the lovely illustrations featured above, and the other side features a special story tied to each image. How cool is that? Made entirely from sustainable materials, these pirate coasters are good for the environment, too. Any guest who doesn’t use them in your home should be forced to swab the deck.

3. Island Map Decor Tablecloth by Ambesonne


Grab your compass and get ready to set sail. This treasure map is sure to delight guests and family members alike. Not only does it have a fun and unique design, but it has a satiny smooth texture, too. Made entirely of polyester and satin, this tablecloth is a delight to handle and easy to clean. Perfect for a pirate Halloween party or as part of your year-round home decor.

4.  CakeDrake Pirate Cupcake Toppers


Speaking of parties, what party would be complete without some hearty grub? Or maybe even some velvety rich cupcakes topped with these adorable mini flags? These pirate toothpicks are available in packs of fifty, which is great for parties year-round, too. Perhaps you’re planning a pirate wedding, birthday, bachelor party, or baby shower. If so, you’ll want to grab these while you can.

5. Pirate Cutouts

These paper cutouts are an excellent addition to any pirate party. Available in a 4-pack, some of these cutouts have different designs on the front and the back. To get the most out of these decorations, you may want to consider suspending them like a mobile or investing in two packs. Pieces are about 20 by 13.2 inches.

6. 4″ Sundial Compass

A pirate would be nothing without their trusty compass. This piece is great for the office or as a conversation starter in your home. But it’s not just a useless piece of decoration. This compass actually works! If you’ve never used a compass like this before, however, you may need to do some research before using it to embark on your next adventure. This compass does not come with instructions.

7. Plastic Treasure Map Party Accessory

Like the idea of number 3 on this list but don’t want to go in for an entire tablecloth? Then this is the treasure map for you. This plastic mat is a breeze to clean and has fun, wavy edges. It would make the perfect placemat at your next children’s party.

8. Cast Iron Pirate Keys

No pirate costume would be complete without the right props. These antique-looking keys will do the trick. Made from cast iron, they’re an accessory that will put a little weight behind your swashbuckling bravado. This key ring comes with five keys ranging in size from about 2 to 4 inches.

9. Beware of Octopus Sign

Most landlubbers won’t understand the dangers of the high seas. Sure, sharks are scary. But have you ever met an angry octopus? They’re smarter than they look. Now you, too, can warn your friends and family of the dangers posed by this mischievous sea creature. This aluminum sign has a retro feel and was printed with ink that resists fading in sunlight. Like the first item on this list, it has holes for mounting and rounded edges to avoid injury. And this vintage sign is weatherproof, too! You can hang it up inside or out without worrying about rust. It measures about 8 by 12 inches and weighs around 6.4 ounces.

10. Handheld Brass Telescope with Wooden Box

If you’re still looking for props, how about this tiny telescope? It’s a real, function telescope that extends to about 6 inches. This is a perfect costume accessory, party decoration, or toy. And it comes with its own little wooden box. How cute!

11. Decorative Wooden Pirate Ship with Jolly Roger Flags

What’s a pirate captain without their ship? This fully-assembled ship is about 13 by 13 inches. It may look like wood, but it’s actually made out of wax so be mindful about placing this near heat sources. But it doesn’t require any special mounting and can balance on its own. This is a great decoration for a classroom or a children’s room.

12. Pirate Skull Rustic Red Throw Pillow Cover


Add a bit of spice to your boring old throw pillows with this pillow cover. This cover is about 18 by 18 inches square and has a little sheen to it. It’s the perfect decoration to make your room really pop.

13. Pirate Brethren of the Coast Flag


Fly your flag high and proud! This flag is about 3 by 5 feet and made of polyester. It’s also made in a header and grommet style that is fairly sturdy. However, this flag is not weather resistant, so keep that in mind when decorating your ship (or home).

14. Pirate Doormat


Create a first impression visitors won’t forget! This doormat is made from coir, a fiber derived from coconut husks, and a firm, vinyl backing. This durable mat is an excellent decoration for Halloween. But beware— it sheds.

15. Vintage Caribbean Pirate Chest


This antique-looking chest is the perfect place to hide all of your loot. Measuring at about 12 by 9 by 9 inches, it’s the ideal mini treasure chest. It’s also great for adding character to a den, office, or living room.

16. Aquarium Rum Barrel


Humans shouldn’t have all the fun. This pirate decoration is suitable for salt or freshwater tanks and terrariums alike. It measures about 5 by 6 by 7.5 inches, and your fish or reptiles will love it.

17. 121-Jack Knee High Boots


These fashionable boots will add a bit of oomph to your pirate costume this year. Sizes range from a men’s 8 to 13. And these are sturdy, too. They weigh about 3 pounds.

18. Pirate Den Playhouse

This adorable playhouse is about 54 inches tall and 40 inches in diameter when fully assembled. It’s a cozy little spot for kids to take their imaginations to the high seas.

19. Ahoy Matey! Sign


This wooden sign is made in the U.S.A. It would make a splendid decoration in a child’s room, living room, dorm room, or office. And it measures at about 9 by 9 inches.

20. Treasure Chest Treat Boxes


What’s a pirate Halloween party without candy? Send your guests home with these adorable treat boxes. They’re easy to put together and come in packs of 12. Each box is about 6.5 inches long. Plenty of room for all that sugary loot!

And, we’ve reached the end of the list. Did any of these catch your fancy? Let me know in the comments below!

19 Dragon Blankets You Won’t Want to Miss

 

Did you know? Every time you make an Amazon purchase from one of my links, you’re supporting this site.

As we dash into fall, it’s time to start thinking about how we’ll stay warm through the long winter months. My favorite way to stay cozy is by snuggling up in a soft, thick blanket. A nice, plush throw is the perfect accessory for a lazy day reading in bed.

In a pinch, a plain-colored blanket will do the trick. But you know what would make it even better?

Dragons.

Yes, dragons.

Dragon Blankets for Everybody

Everyone’s favorite fire-breathing fantasy creature will help you think warm thoughts through the worst of the blistering cold. Here’s a round-up of some top-rated blankets fit for a dragon lover.

1. I Love Dragons Baby Blanket


This adorable baby blanket features an equally adorable baby dragon on a corner of the blanket. How cute! The dragon print measures up to 10″ by 10″ while the entire blanket is 32″ by 37″ with a 1/2″ trim. Made of ultra soft cotton, this blanket is perfect for swaddling your little one to keep them nice and comfy. And the non-dragon side even had polka dots! Who doesn’t like polka-dots?

2. Dragon Queen Size Mink Style Blanket


This fierce-looking comforter is made with 100% acrylic fibers and measures about 79″ by 94″. Though not as heavy as standard mink blankets, this luxurious throw is just as warm on those long, cold nights. Incredibly plush and every inch dragon-approved.

3. Silver Dragon Mink Plush Blanket


This regal dragon is metallic enough to give Fairy Tail’s Gajeel a run for his money. (If you’ve never read the manga or seen the show, I definitely recommend it.) The blanket is 100% polyester and should fit most queen size beds. The captivating design is part of K2 Skate’s signature collection. Even though it’s machine washable, pilling might cause the design to lose a bit of its clarity. This might be avoided by handwashing or spot treating as necessary, instead.

4. Magic Dragon Super Soft Fleece


This purple dragon means business. Look at those vibrant colors! Measuring 58″ wide by 80″ long, this high-quality blanket is a breeze to wash. Unlike the Silver Dragon blanket, this one is 100% machine washable, quick drying, and anti-pilling. It even features classy black satin trim. This is the perfect blanket to step up your dorm room design game.

5. Dragon Sleeping Bag by Lovely Pumpkins

Okay, so this one is technically a sleeping bag. But, still. It’s soft, it’s comfy, it’ll keep your kids warm. It’s basically a blanket with a nifty little pouch that’s a comfortable size for toddlers through tweens. Though it’s marketed toward boys, this makes a fantastic gift for girls and nonbinary children, as well. Whether they’re camping, curled up on the sofa, or generally feeling a little drafty, this blanket will warm them right up. Plus, it looks like they’re being eaten by a giant dragon, which is pretty funny.

6. Green Dragon Korean Mink Blanket by Solaron


Want a dragon that can tie itself into near-Celtic knots? Well, here you go. This is also great for people who want blankets on the heavier end. Made of ultra fine polyester mink fibers, this blanket weighs a whopping 12 lbs. This blanket is durable, too. It features reinforced trim stitching so the ends won’t come loose. A fabulous comforter to keep you toasty at night.

7. Dragon Monster Fleece


Now that’s a feisty-looking dragon! This incredible and fiery design comes from a company called The Warmth. How’s that for an appropriate name? This super soft fleece blanket is easy to wash and fold. It also comes with black satin trim. Equally suitable for picnics or master suite bedrooms, this throw comes in three different sizes. Bonus: they will make custom blankets, too. All you have to do is send them a picture.

8. Red Dragon/ Dragon of Chaos Reversible Korean Mink Blanket


Double the dragons, double the Super Saiyan power. Or maybe they’re Twin Dragons? Puns and outdated cultural references aside, this is a pretty nifty blanket. Though not as heavy as the Green Dragon blanket, it weighs in at a comfortable 8 lbs. This queen size comforter is machine washable, dryer safe, and doesn’t shed. However, that won’t stop your cat from shedding on it. And odds are, your cat will love this blanket as much as you do.

9. Chinese Dragon on a Korean Style Blanket


This dragon seems mildly confused. I don’t blame him. This is another Korean mink style blanket. Super plush and cozy but not the top choice for an Antarctic winter. It’s a little bit lighter than most other mink blankets, and it’s made in China. Approximately 74″ by 90″, this blanket comes with a storage bag.

10. Mysterious Dragon Large Fleece Blanket


This vibrant fleece throw features an armored knight riding a freaking armored dragon. How cool is that? It’s like something straight out of the Dragonriders of Pern by Ann McCaffrey. Great for cuddling under and reading about dragons. Five stars.

11. How to Train Your Dragon Plush Throw by Northwest


Who doesn’t love Toothless? This children’s blanket features characters from DreamWork’s How to Train Your Dragon 2. (And the original.) I would also be remiss if I didn’t point out these magical films are based on the books by Cressida Cowell. But back to the blanket. Admittedly a little on the thin side, this is better suited for snuggling throughout the day than it is keeping the chills away.

12. Love Dragons Fleece Blanket

What better way to warm your loved one’s heart than to give them this sweet and super soft blanket? This colorful and beautiful design highlights the softer side of dragon kind, plus it’s uber snuggly. By far, this is the most romantic of the dragon blankets on this list.

13. Obscenely Cute Dragon Throw Blanket


It’s incredibly difficult to see that hatchling dragon without squeeing. Those eyes, those claws, that tail! Out of all of the the dragon blankets on this list, it’s definitely the cutest. This blanket is 50″ by 60″ and the design is printed using premium ink. They even offer a 100% money back guarantee that the obscenely cute dragon blanket you order is exactly what you receive. This item is great for student dorm rooms or as a lucky blanket when you go to a sports event. I mean, your team can’t POSSIBLY lose if they have a baby dragon cheering them on. Right? #DragonsAreMagic

14. DreamWork’s Dragons 2 Tapestry Throw Blanket by The Northwest Company

Toothless and the gang are back at it again. Hiccup and Astrid are all fired up and ready for an adventure. This woven throw features a colorful fringe on all sides and was made in the U.S.A. Dimensions are around 60 inches by 46 inches. Note: this is NOT a plush blanket.

15. DreamWorks Dragon Flight Micro Raschel Blanket

Though this isn’t the fluffiest blanket in the world, it is soft, vibrant, and easy to clean. This would be a good birthday gift for the dragon-loving child in your life. Especially if they like Night Furies.

16. Dragon Yin Yang Fleece Throw Blanket

This ferocious pair is caught in an eternal struggle for balance. I have no idea what the Chinese characters say. But this throw is 100% machine washable and uber comfy.

17. Anne Stokes Gothic Fantasy Art Asian Dragon Dancer Fleece Blanket

My favorite part of this design is how happy she looks. Even though she’s probably about to be eaten. This lovely blanket features officially licensed artwork and is produced by 2BHip.

18. Skyrim Emblem Dragon Fleece Blanket


This would make an awesome gift for the gamer in your life, especially if they’re a Skyrim fan. Incredibly beautiful and soft, this blanket is officially licensed and produced by a company called JUST FUNKY. This is the only one of these dragon blankets that seriously pwns.

19. Chezmoi Collection 7-Piece Dragon Jacquard Comforter Set

Now, this is a great housewarming or wedding gift for the classy adults in your life. This 7-piece comforter set oozes class and style. Out of all the dragon blankets in this post, this one is by far the most elegant.

That’s the end of the list! Which one of these dragon blankets was your favorite? Be sure to share in the comments below.

Read a book, save a life!

This June, to celebrate Pride month, I’m donating 50% of my ebook royalties for Fillius Glint to a charity dedicated to saving the lives of LGBTQ+ people across the globe. Though I’ve been fortunate to live in countries where being queer isn’t a crime, that isn’t the case for millions of people. As a relatively fortunate genderfluid and bisexual person, I think it’s important to give back, reach out, and help those in the queer community who are suffering because they committed the “crime” of being born in the wrong country. Please join me in spreading awareness and donating however you can.
