When the Darkness Falls Blog Hop

I would like to say Happy Birthday to Hennessee Andrews and thank her for hosting this blog. 

I have been trying to weeks to figure out what I was going to write for this blog and still really have no idea.  I was going to write a short story about Friday the 13th but have been so tied up between writing, editing and working that I just haven't had time. 

I don't usually consider myself a superstitious person but I have to admit I am when it come to Friday the 13th.  I also have superstitions when dealing with full moons too.  I believe my ideas come from my evil day job. I work in law enforcement and have had many strange things occur on Friday the 13th and around the full moon. The full moon phenomenon seems to be a common superstition in a lot of law enforcement employees that I have had the chance to meet and get to know.  It's not just the night of the full moon though.  For three days before and three days after we receive outlandish calls.  

While I cannot take time of from work for every full moon I do however usually take Friday the 13th off if I am scheduled to work.  Today will be my first Friday the 13th that I have worked in a few years. While I hope for a quiet and uneventful day, I'm sure that is not going to happen.  

I will be sure to share some of my Friday the 13th craziness with you at a later date but until then I would like to hear about your Friday the 13th adventures.  Either good or bad please leave me a comment with your most memorable Friday the 13th.  

Anyone that leaves a comment will be entered to win a copy of my book No Escape of Destiny or if you have already read it and want to wait I will send you a copy of my next book Hidden Alpha when it is released in August. I will also be giving away a $20 gift e-card of winners choice from EITHER Bookstrand, Amazon, OR, Barnes and Noble. For more chances to win please see the Rafflecopter below.

  1. Kasey, great post! Happy Friday the 13th! Lea

  2. Hey girl, I hope you have an uneventful day at work! Yes, the crazies do come out on this day. Good luck!

  3. Well as predicted working on Friday the 13th sucked. Started out with farm animals running loose in traffic. Ended with multiple accidents at the same time. One of which knocked out power to many people. Thankfully everyone is fine and there no animals hurt in the making of this Friday the 13th adventure. Eight hours was all I could handle. Thank gods I took four hours off to go pick up my son from camp.

  4. I so love Friday the 13th...13 is my lucky number so I love this day. It has always been a fine or better than fine day for me. I hope your job was uneventful!

  5. I love Friday the 13 as I usually get to watch all my horror movies or haunted shows. When I worked at the hospital it was always much busier with a full moon. LOL. Thanks for the giveaway.

  6. I tend to have good days on Friday the 13th! We tend to watch the movie whenever Friday the 13th rolls around. :) Thanks for being part of the blog hop <3

  7. I'm not much into the superstitions. While in school, I did a report on various superstitions, you wouldn't believe how many there was, it was mind boggling.
