It's about time I post about this, but I've been remiss in traditional posting activity for a while.

My friend [livejournal.com profile] brittadotcom has an amazing talent at throwing Halloween parties. Actually any party she throws is amazing. I've been to a handful of them. Over the years I've attended some of her Harry Potter parties and a Star Trek Murder Mystery party. She's turned her apartment and now house into Hogwarts Castle! Her ideas are amazing! Some of her ideas have been featured in other books like An Unofficial Muggle's Guide to the Wizarding World.

After years of people finding her website via serendipity and loving her ideas, she has finally put her ideas into book form. If you want fantastic ideas for throwing fun halloween parties, I suggest you check out her book, Eerie Elegance.

Her book contains recipes, crafting and decorating ideas. And yes, I will be purchasing my copy shortly.

Check out the pictures on her page! Yes, that's her house...in suburbia! I wonder if her neigbhors have come over and asked, "Heeeeey, lady! Our neighborhood wasn't zoned for a creepy foggy cemetary" ?

Intrepid halloween party hosts and guests, go forth and buy this book!

Oh, and [livejournal.com profile] brittadotcom, I ran into someone at Dragoncon who recognized me from your website because he and his wife used ideas for a Harry Potter party they threw. Yes, indeed. Hot Small World Action. They loved your ideas and their party was a great success!

Thank you very much for the link! :)

Well, until this house, the graveyards were not visible from the street, but I did hear from guests during one party at my duplex that the fog had rolled out & covered the whole block!

That is so funny they recognized you from my pages! Glad their party went well!

P.S. You have 3 order options now, including autographed from me, but I understand if you have free shipping at Amazon or whatever is best for you. Thanks for buying one!

Free shipping!?! Phoeey! I want the autograph, dadgummet! I'm so proud of you for doing this! Of course, you know I would argue that T'leo would buy from Amazon...

Payment sent. :)

Heck, T'Leo wouldn't even buy a book about such an illogical human celebration! ;)

Got your order and lo & behold 5 others have already bought autographed copies too! Guess I don't get email notifications from PayPal...oops! Now I just need my books to arrive...*sigh*

I know this is an old post but I may have to pick up one of those books as well.

We'll be doing another Potter Party for my wifes birthday this year (since Half Blood Prince is being released around the same time, go figure) and could use some additions to the stuff we did last time.

If it goes off as planned we will be doing full scale Quidditch at a local park. Will let you know how that pans out.

That last post was me, not anonymous. :)
