Anyone for a party? ~ Outside the Margins with Susan Mac Nicol

Join Prism Book Alliance® as Susan Mac Nicol goes Outside the Margins today.


This is a purely random blog post today. I was in the mood for light-heartedness and quirk after all the crap happening in Britain at the moment. So I thought a blog post on people I’d invite to my Halloween party would make a nice change.

I want a Halloween party to write home about. I want all the scariest characters in film and fiction to dress up, bring booze and snacks, put on their party animal hat and boogie down to songs like Thriller, and music like this…

Of course, they’d all have their own chores to do to either prepare things for or host the party.

Pennywise would be there, of course, with his trademark shark smile. He’d be in charge of supervising the children in the nursery. You know, keeping them entertained, playing clown games like clowns do.

The weirdo from The Ring would be there too, so she can clean the walls and ceiling of any handprints on the walls, or spider webs on the ceiling as she’s crawling about up there. I’d give her a cloth and some Mr Muscle cleaner and she’d soon make short work of the stains and marks. While she’s down there, she could do the floor too.

Chucky could be in charge of getting under the table and chairs and moving people’s drinks so they don’t get spilt. He’d be like this energised Robbie robot vacuum cleaner that sweeps through the room and cackles maniacally when he finds a half jack glass of whisky or beer.

I’d have The Gentlemen from Buffy there as well, because boy, those guys can get around a party like no one’s business. They have this way of gliding around without knocking anyone, or jostling their drinks and I can imagine them appearing at someone’s shoulder. “Are you enjoying the party, sir?’ or ‘Let me help you with your coat.’ Hopefully the arms would be detached first before the coat was hung up….

Freddy Krueger could be there too, because we’d want everyone to look their best for the party. And he can give one mean haircut and close shave with those fingers of his.

Now that Shane Templar has stripped the armour from Matt Langer’s heart, will either of them ever be safe again?

Though two years past, Matthew Langer is still getting over the death of a loved one. He’s steered clear of serious relationships, but when he meets the irascible, dirty mouthed and tempestuous Shane Templar that decision has never been harder. Shane is sexy, warm and funny, and Matthew finds himself trying like hell not to fall for him. Especially when Shane, with his quick wit and hacking skills, is quick to stand up for justice and avenge wrongs. Then Shane strikes at the wrong target, and Matthew realises just how far he’s already fallen. At the threat of losing for good yet another man who has broken through his armour, Matthew finds his heart stripped bare. He must face the demons of his soul or a future without love.
