One thing we all have in common is a (slightly obsessive) love for Halloween. Before the horror, before the gore, before the scary movies there was our favorite holiday with its trick-or-treating, delicious candy, costumes, Halloween decorations, haunted houses, etc.

But every year, Halloween gets upstaged by Christmas. Ever since Charles Dickens wrote "A Christmas Carol" the world has gone all google-eyed over Christmas. But now Halloween lovers have a classic Halloween novel all their own. The Legend of Decimus Croome: A Halloween Carol is now available in paperback and e-book format from PurdyBooks on Amazon.

If you love ghosts, scarecrows, witches and black cats, "The Legend of Decimus Croome" is for you. And, best of all, it's a great Halloween book for all ages. It makes a superb read-aloud for the young goblins, a great chapter book for teens & pre-teens & a nostalgic romp through Halloween past (present & future) for adults. In addition to PG rated spooks, it also has lots of humorous scenes & even a wee bit of Halloween romance when old man Croome's dearly departed wife pays him a nocturnal visit.

Thanks for being Halloween fanatics & happy haunting all year long!!!
