Hi everyone! I’m very excited and pleased to be one of the people chosen to reveal the cover of The Ghosts of Halloween by Ceillie Simkiss. It’s my very first cover reveal on this blog!!!
The Ghosts of Halloween companion short story collection to Ceillie’s first published book Learning Curves. I had the privilege of reading some of the draft of Learning Curves and it was a very sweet reading experience. The stories follow Elena, a Puerto Rican lesbian and Cora, a panromantic asexual girl with autism.
Now, without further ado, here’s the cover!
Halloween is a holiday that is both loved and reviled by people all over America. It’s one of Cora’s favorite holidays, and a massive source of anxiety for Elena. Between the two of them, they get up to all sorts of hijinks and wind up falling even more head over heels for each other in The Ghosts of Halloween.
The Ghosts of Halloween collection is made up of three sweet slice-of-life short stories: Past, Present and Future. Each tells the story of a different Halloween that Cora and Elena have gone or will go through together.
Past: Cora forgets about a planned Halloween party she’s supposed to attend with Elena. Will she make it in time for the festivities?
Present: Elena gets a surprise invitation to her new job’s Halloween party – and costumes are mandatory. Will they come up with appropriate costumes in time for the party?
Future: Five years after the events of Learning Curves, Elena takes her niblings trick-or-treating. The last house they visit has a bit of a surprise in store.
