Blogletter: The Fall of the Season of Spooktober

The saddest time of year is upon us: spooky season is over. And we are in limbo until the holidays officially kick off. I know lots of folks go straight into this mode…but I am not one of them. I have nothing against anyone who jumps right in! Do whatever makes you happy. I am simply in spooky season mourning now. But thankfully, there’s been quite a bit of news released the last few weeks, so I can cheer up by sharing all my updates!

  • The PILLOW TALK cover has been revealed. We teamed up with Eisner-winning comics site, WWAC to unveil the long-awaited cover for my YA graphic novel debut, which will be out April 30, 2024. You can learn more and/or pre-order a copy by going to
  • RACC PACK is nearly here! We’re two and a half months away until it’s release on January 23, 2024. Same with the above, but if you’d like to know more or pre-order a copy, visit In FACT, if you do pre-order yourself a copy through Dreamers & Make-Believers, you can get yourself an exclusive gift.
  • MY LITTLE PONY: CAMP BIGHOOF just had its penultimate issue come out and all that’s left is for the fifth and final issue to hit stands at the beginning of December. If you’re a trade waiter, the collected edition will be out on May 7, 2024. More info here.
  • Several things from Epic came out including TIME BUDDIES #6 and #10—which are a delight (in my completely biased opinion)—and Cat Ninja #27. All are currently available on the Epic Originals site and app.

I feel like there are a few things that I’m forgetting but I’ll be back next month with more and can update y’all then.

Diving into some other fun stuff like what I watched and read last month though…OoOooOooH! If you’re curious about the spooky movies I watched throughout Spooktober, visit my round-up here. I meant to watch at least 31 movies (one for every day) but that didn’t super pan out. I’m happy with the number I did manage to watch though…and a great variety! And outside of films, here’s what I watched as far as TV goes. It’s basically spooky and reality TV, which I can’t ever quit…not even for spooky season.


  • Love is Blind S5
  • The Challenge All-Stars S1-3
  • The Fall of the House of Usher
  • Over the Garden Wall
  • The Challenge USA S2
  • What We Do in the Shadows S5

And then on the reading side of things…for Spooktober, I curated a little horror reading list for myself and tried to get through as many as I could. There’s a mix of graphic novels as well as prose novels, and a couple novellas. Here’s what I read:


  • Night Fever by Ed Brubaker, Sean and Jacob Phillips
  • The Night Hunt by Alexandra Christo – The Night Hunt follows Atia, a Nefas—a monster who feeds on fear. Trying to stay under the radar of the gods, she never stays in one place long…until a Herald of the gods finds and curses her. To break the curse, she’ll need to team up with him and some other unlikely heroes. A thrilling, fast-paced, and fun standalone YA fantasy with fan fave tropes such as enemies to lovers, forbidden romance, monsters and gods, and more.
  • Dracula, Motherf**ker! by Alex de Campi and Erica Henderson
  • All That Consumes Us by Erica Waters – A queer dark academia story with ghosts. As soon as I started this book, I didn’t want to stop reading it; it sucked me and had me enjoying all the twists and turns from start to finish. It’s atmospheric and filled with mystery and intrigue as we unravel not only a mysterious death but a secretive society that has been rumoured to dabble in the occult.Having read a few of Waters’ other works (and enjoying them all), this might be my favourite so far. Waters has an incredible gift for immersing you in her characters and their worlds, seamlessly. The pacing here is excellent and gives you exactly the right amount of information throughout to keep you guessing and to enjoy the ride. An excellent read, especially for spooky season and fans of gothic dark academia.
  • Eight Billion Genies by Charles Soule and Ryan Browne
  • Love Everlasting by Tom King, Elsa Charretier, and Matt Hollingsworth
  • Spider-Punk: Battle of the Banned by Cody Ziglar, Justin Mason, Jim Charalampidis, and Travis Lanham
  • Our Wives Under the Sea by Julia Armfield
  • Peng!: Action Sports Adventure by Corey Lewis
  • A Guest in the House by Emily Carroll – Hauntingly beautiful and creepy. Emily Carroll once again proves that they’re one of the modern masters of horror.
  • Nothing But Blackened Teeth by Cassandra Khaw

I know I don’t have a lot of reviews or thoughts on these books, but it was a whirlwind month! I will say that the stand out books for me were: Our Wives Under the Sea and All That Consumes Us. OWUtS is probably a new all-time fave, honestly. But I don’t have a ton to say right now since my brain is like AHHHHHHH! So as always, you can find my full reading list on Goodreads.

And that’s it for my latest round-up. I was thinking about postponing this for a week since I’m sure some other things will get announced this week but hey, that’s more updates for next month. Until then…
