CONTEST: Which Character Would You be for Halloween?

Happy Halloween, everyone! 

I was so excited when it turned out to be my turn to post on Halloween. It's my favorite holiday of the year. I get to decorate every room in my house, watch scary movies and Halloween-themed TV shows, and make my front yard look like a creepy cemetery, all while assuring my husband that it's just to make memories for our six-year-old. (Guess he'll discover the truth in a few years).

Any-who... [insert innocent whistle here]

What I didn't realize was how much pressure I'd feel to write the perfect Halloween post. The topics are really endless! Fortunately, I was presented with a wonderful idea when I received an e-mail not too long ago. One of my Estilorian fans, a young lady named Lindsey, reached out to me and said that she wanted to dress up as my character, Olivia, for Halloween

First of all, HOLY WITCH BALLS!!! Someone who read my books wants to be one of my characters for Halloween?? Talk about a super-star moment! I couldn't have been more excited.

Second, thank you, Lindsey, for inspiring me. You made me wonder which literary character I'd want to dress up as for Halloween. There are so many genres and types of characters that it's hard to narrow it down, isn't it?

After mentally making my way from The Great Gatsby to Twilight and everything in between, I finally settled on one of my all-time favorite female characters: Lieutenant Eve Dallas from J.D. Robb's "In Death" series. She's a total bad-ass, married to a super-hot bajillionaire, and has so many layers that I never tire of reading about her. Florida heat aside, I can definitely see myself trick-of-treating in one of her long leather coats with a futuristic weapon at my side.

But enough about me. Which character costume would you don and why? I've decided to host a little contest for everyone who responds. The winner will receive their choice of eBook: Defy, Shift or Elder (which comes out later this year) and some Estilorian swag. So give it your best shot!

The winner will be announced next week on my blog, so be sure to check it out!


  1. I want to be Bella from Twilight. She is so much like me.

    1. That'd be an especially nice costume with Edward as your escort, eh? Thanks for commenting!

  2. Katniss from THE HUNGER GAMES. I totally want a bow & arrow.


  3. She's pretty awesome, isn't she, Mary? Thanks for piping in!

  4. Selene from Underworld... she's can take care of herself and still cares about doing the right thing.
