Celebrate the Small Things and Spooktoberfest

Celebrate the Small Things is a Friday blog hop where we share things, big or small, during that week, and then hop around to other blogs to see what they've shared. 

Hosts: Lexa CainWriting Off The Edge, and Kidbits.

My celebrations...

** We've created puppies out of flowers for a few years, but now we have cats! I can't wait to make more of these! 

** It's finally Autumn! Yay! I love this time of year! 

** The 5th annual Spooktoberfest is up and running! 

It’s that time of year again - the 5th Annual Spooktoberfest is here with your hosts from Cover Girls!

We cannot believe it’s been 5 years since we started this whole adventure of Spooktoberfest. And to celebrate, we're taking it back old school. If this seems familiar to you, it’s because we are bringing back the original Spooktoberfest requirements, with a few minor tweaks here and there.


1.) Follow Jax at Bouquet of Books, Dani at Entertaining Interests and Cover Girls if you don’t already. We do follow back, and if we've missed you, please let us know so we can follow your blog.

2.) Your Flash Fiction piece cannot be any longer than 400 words. Sorry… that’s part of the challenge.

3.) You must use the MANDATORY 5 words listed below or any version of it. Please highlight them in a way so we can locate them faster within your post.


4.) Post your Flash Fiction piece any day from Monday Oct 24th thru Friday, Oct. 28th.

5.) You can tweet us, if you'd like, @Covergirlsdj to let us know when you've posted your entry.

6.) Display the Spooktoberfest badge on your blog.

7.) It’s a blog hop, so… hop around to other participating blogs and leave them some awesome comments.

8.) Have fun!

Your flash fiction piece can be scarycomicalromantic, or whatever you choose, just be creative! And, yes, this blogfest is International!!

The winners & runner-ups will be posted on HALLOWEEN! That’s right, Monday, Oct. 31st.

Winners - $20 Amazon e-giftcard
Runner-ups - A book of our choosing
