Happy Halloween!!!!!!



Happy Halloween!!!

To celebrate I’d thought I’d share with you some of the challenges and my favourite blogging activities I have done this October highlighting my Halloween Themed posts in case you’ve missed them:

So let’s start off with some photography challenges. I’ve recently joined Instagram https://instagram.com/kyrosmagica/ as has my friend and fellow blogger Hugh over at Hugh’s Views and News.

Hugh wanted to see what lurks in the shadows: http://hughsviewsandnews.com/2015/10/24/hughs-photo-challenge-week-3-what-lurks-in-the-shadows/

Here’s my contribution for Hugh’s What Lurks in The Shadow’s Photo Challenge:



I also had a go at Ed Mooney’s Capturing History Spooktacular Challenge: https://edmooneyphoto.wordpress.com/2015/10/01/spooktacular-2015/



Shadows even managed to sneak there way into my submission for Julia’s Camera Lucinda Photography Challenge, I kind of stretched my interpretation of the challenge, it was meant to be metal and rust so I cheated a bit! The guitar strings were a bit old and rusty! The shadows weren’t too spooky but I wanted to include this in this post to do a shout out for Julia’s challenge. It’s fun to join in.

Here’s the link to Julia’s challenge: https://myredpage.wordpress.com/2015/10/16/camera-lucida-metal/

Some writing contests, and challenges captured my interest:

The 5th Annual Halloweensie Writing Contest, this one sounded cute so how could I say no? I found it on Susannahill’s blog: http://susannahill.blogspot.co.uk/2015/10/the-5th-annual-halloweensie-writing.html

The 79 Word Story challenge from Chris at The Story Reading Ape:



I went for a jog and wrote about a Halloween brooch. My mind works in mysterious ways!  https://mjmallon.com/2015/10/12/79-words-story-the-halloween-brooch/


Rachael Ritchey’s Blog Battle Writing Challenge, a weekly fun place to hang out and do blog battle : http://rachaelritchey.com/blogbattle/

Here’s a couple of my Blog Battle stories:


A paranormal lakeside story about a hidden scar:  https://mjmallon.com/2015/10/13/blogbattle-the-scar/



A paranormal/fantasy story inspired by the blood moon: https://mjmallon.com/2015/09/29/blog-battle-blood-moon-a-rip-of-a-ride/


I love to join in Ronovan Writes Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge:


The prompt words that Ron came up with in that particular week were Tide and Flesh and they just seemed to fit the bill so well!

Also I just finished reading Caroline Peckham’s Creeping Shadow, a pre-release ARC and have just done a quick review on Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/1417107616

Phew!! I have been busy. Don’t expect me to keep this up, or I may just turn into a shadow of my former self!

Oh and with all this blogging I had my best day for likes on October 27th, thank you all so much for liking and commenting on my posts. :))))

Newsflash: I’m having a well earned blogging break soon in early November, probably starting in the first week, and extending for all of November to do some much neglected writing, and I will be making some decisions about the publication of my manuscript Krystallos. More about that to come….

So bye for now.

I hope you have a very happy fun filled Halloween!




From your magical good witch Marje @ Kyrosmagica !! xx

  1. You’ve done so much! I really enjoyed everything you’ve done this month from the book reviews to the photo and story contests. That’s a neat “spooky” photo of yours.
    Thanks so much for putting me in the holiday spirit 🙂
