Now that you guys are all FOR SURE familiar with the Halloween Author invasion, I have a fun post for you guys. To get everyone pumped about our amazing guest list, Christina and I will be featuring Author Spotlight posts for our authors to get you excited to party alongside them next week! Each post will feature the authors bio, links, and a fun exclusive Halloween-ish interview they have granted us for the event! We are so honored to have all of these amazing authors participating in our event! Are you ready to learn a little more about our line up? Here we go!


HD Smith has been writing as a hobby for over ten years. DARK HOPE is her first full length novel. She has previously published two middle grade novellas in ebook format. She is a software developer by day, working for an awesome cruise line in Celebration, FL.

HD grew up in South Carolina, but has called the Sunshine State home since 1997. She has Computer Science degrees from Clemson University (BS) and Florida Institute of Technology (MS). Her other hobbies include painting and screen printing. She enjoys creating t- shirts inspired by the places in her books.
After reading Dark Hope by HD Smith, I knew I wanted her to participate in this event. Dark Hope was so intriguing and an excellent story! I will be reposting my review of this novel during release week, but until then, you can click on the cover below to be taken to the book's Goodreads! 
Halloween Spotlight Interview

What is your favorite supernatural genre (Witches, zombies, vampires, werewolves, etc) and why?

I like Vampires and Werewolves, not a huge fan of Zombies, they are too no-win for me ... I prefer my vampires to be beautiful, not decrepit and ugly ... and what's not to love about shifters?

What is your favorite horror film and/or read?
Anything by Stephen King.

What is your favorite Halloween costume (or your favorite that you have worn/have seen)?

My favorite was the year my brother went as Dracula and I went as a clown with pompom hair ... the costumes were mostly face paint and a few accessories, which in no way held up well for apple bobbing ... good times

What is your favorite Halloween candy?

Caramel Apples ... yum! ... or candy corn  

What is your favorite part about Halloween?

I live in Celebration, FL, where we do Halloween like a Stepford Wife ... I'm fairly sure some of the trick-or-treaters have driven in from out of state

What is your favorite Halloween memory? 

I grew up in a fairly small town in SC, you might even say it was out in the sticks (although it was only three miles to the center of town), so trick-or-treating wasn't a walk around the neighborhood ... you actually had to get in your car and drive to each house  

Well, what do you think? Excited to hang out with HD Smith during the Halloween Author Invasion? I know we sure are!

HD Smith will be taking over the event on Thursday, October 30th! 

We can't wait to see you there! Go show HD some love and tell her you can't wait to party! Thanks so much for stopping by. Until next time, Happy Reading!
