Happy October!

This month is probably my favorite month of the year. The leaves start to change color. The days get cooler and Halloween is just 30 days away. Pumpkins are on sale at the farms around my home and the smell of apple cider and donuts is in the air.

And of course scary stories are abundant!

In a few short days, I’m going to release a new 101 Romance Story Starters book with a Halloween Theme. It’s packed with horror, paranormal, and suspenseful romance writing prompts.

To celebrate, I’m sharing a writing prompt each day until the end of the month.

Here’s the first Halloween Story Starter. Enjoy!

Mirror Mirror


Your heroine starts working for a widower. She’s caring for his young daughter. She discovers a mirror in the home where the dead wife can communicate with her. What does the dead wife have to say? For example, maybe the dead wife hates your heroine or maybe she’s trying to tell her that she was murdered.
