Monstrous Monday and Real Case PIP Files




Today is Monstrous Monday!
(For PIP blog tour update, please scroll below)

This is a blogfest / bloghop hosted by Tim Brannan at The Other Side.

To see the official rules, join, or follow the participants, go HERE.

It's simple. Just post your favorite monster. One you like, love or hate. It could be from your own novel or someone else's or from a movie - anything! 

I don't care for the really scary monsters, because, well, they're scary!

But I do adore the Fun-Scary monsters.

And so today, my feature monster is...

Sally!


Why do I luurve her? She is just so sweet - and talented.


She can cook...



If she falls apart...



She can sew herself back together...



She can sing...






And that's why Jack Skellington loves her, too!


Are you participating in the blogfest?

What is your favorite monster?


**************************

Now, on to more blog tour information...



Thank you to Tyrean Martinson for hosting me and Angela last Friday. We appreciate your hospitality ever so much!

Today we're over at Dianne Salerni's blog talking about Real Case Partners in ParanormYA files. That's right, real paranormal stuff that's happened to us.

And of course, we still have our blogsitting teens over at Partners in ParanormYA, holding down the fort. We hope they're behaving after last weeks revenge scheme against the Devourer (Neverlove) and the Dark Shadow! (Givin' Up The Ghost).

There is still a giveaway going on over at PIP, so please stop by.

    1. Shelly, if you've been ordered, then it's definitely a good idea!

  4. Such a great choice, Sally, a woman any monster or non-monster could love! Next blog hop should be a tribute to all female monsters -- Sally could be the honorary host!

    1. T, you are so right. Monsters don't always have to be scary. They can be fun and nice and have morals, too!

  6. I LOVE Sally! She is wonderful and every time I see a purple nightshade while out hiking I think of her. :)

    1. Elisa, lol! Is purple nightshade what she used to drug the doctor? *sigh* But what's a ghoul to do?

    2. Yes! I have recently learned our local plants and that one was easy to remember. She is why I knew it was poisonous. We learn good stuff from movies sometimes :)

      Delete
    3. LOL, of course we learn lots of stuff from movies:)

  7. The idea of being able to sew yourself back together is pretty creeptastic. I've gotta say. Excellent monster choice.

    1. S.L., creeptastic it is! Even so, Sally is such a special ghoul:)

  8. Sally's too cute to be a monster. =) What a fun blogfest! If I'd been around the blog-o-sphere the last couple weeks I would have joined up for sure, but alas, there are only so many hours in the day... (And so much sugar in the bloodstream...) I love that your post is mostly pictures.

    1. Crystal, I know! She is just so precious. And I thought I'd keep my post short, because there are a lot of stops to make:)

  9. What not to love about Sally?
    I love Nightmare Before Christmas. It is one of the best modern-day Christmas tales out there.

    Thanks so much for joining my bloghop, I really appreciate it.

    1. Tim, I agree. A modern classic, for sure. It's been a fun day. Thank you so much for hosting:)

  10. That's so kewl that she can sew herself together. If I could do that, I'd leave off a few pounds. Hmm, maybe double that.

    1. Joylene, isn't she so talented?! And I'm with you, if I could do that, I'd leave more than a few pounds out of my body, lol!

  12. Yay! A monster that I actually liked! I mean...that didn't scare me to pieces. We need monsters like Sally to show us that the dark isn't so scary after all. :)

    1. Erin, me too! Sally's not scary at all - except maybe to a little kid, lol!

  16. I love how Jack loves her too! Love this movie. I need to see it again.

    1. Mina, it's a classic romance. Once Jack opens his eyes and sees what's before him...the rest is history:)

  17. Oh, I do like Sally, she is a sweet fun-monster! I also adore the Corpse Bride.

    1. J.C., I like the Corpse Bride, too, and Tim Burton's style in general. It's very different, but fun-scary.

  18. Yay! Sally is wonderful. Speaking of which, I meant to watch Nightmare Before Christmas with my kiddos as their Halloween scare.
