Kelly’s fashion rule #2:

Don’t be a follower of trends

There are no limits

“If you look up, there are no limits.” (Japanese proverb) This month I’ll celebrate a birthday and let me tell you the fifth decade rocks! I’m blessed to have an amazing husband, a supportive family and a new ally by my side in my publishing journey. This year I’ll have three book releases, talk about surreal. Getting here wasn’t easy. It was filled with frustration, bleeding pages and rejection (ha! not much has changed other than the publishing part). I’m so thankful I did rl give up. And if you have a dream I hope you won’t give up either. This is going to be our year m. You and me. Go for your dreams because there are no limits, especially age limits. #writerslife #cozymystery #authorsofinstagram #authors18 #goalsetter #behindthestories #challengetochange #believeinyourself #livingthrmedream #writinc

Halloween – Cozy Author Style

I’ve always loved Halloween. I love the ghost stories and now I love binging on all those haunted shows. So much fun! I love the way the air feels on Halloween night. There’s anticipation of the unexpected, after all, you never know who’ll show up at your door. And when you’re a mystery writer, your imagination can run wild with that scenario. 🙂

This Halloween I’ll be celebrating the spooktacular day with my fellow Cozy Mystery Crew authors. Not a member? Don’t know what Cozy Mystery Crew is or where it is? Let me give you the 411. CMC is a Facebook group I belong to. We’re 13 mystery authors who’ve come together to form one big reader group. During the week one of us hosts and hangs out with you. We also have special events, like our Halloween event. Over the summer we had a reading program and we gave away prizes and had a big party at the end of the summer. We have a lot of fun things planned for the coming months but the most fun part for us is connecting with our readers. So if you’re not a member it’s not too late to join and spend Halloween with us. In fact, between now and then you’ll have the opportunity to hang out with some great authors.

Here’s a sneak preview at what will be happening on Halloween.

Question of the day – what do you love about Halloween?
