Blog Tour: Eve Hallows Guest Post

Click for Official Tour Schedule
I am SO excited to be part of this blog tour! I am loving the Nightmare series, and Eve, and her whole world in general! So today, that one and only EVE is stopping by my blog with a guest post! Whooo! But first, a little about the books:

EVE HALLOWS AND THE BOOK OF SHRIEKS (BOOK 1)

For fourteen-year-old Eve Hallows, life can be summed up in one word—horrible.  She has the most horrible friends.  She lives in a horrible old castle.  Even her family is a bunch of horrible monsters.
However, in the monster-inhabited world of Gravesville—a world where messages are sent through Ouija boards, jack-o’-lanterns get facials to suit their moods, and the worst thing Eve has to deal with are those annoying zombie tourists who overrun her favorite graveyard during the Halloween season—horrible means wonderful.  And everything for Eve is perfectly horrible.

But her life is about to go head over heels when a mysterious group known as The Source starts terrorizing Gravesville.  Now she must move to the human world—where everything is opposite ... and for Eve, that's absolutely adorable!
Praise for Eve Hallows and the Book of Shrieks:

"Move over, Neil Gaiman’s CORALINE and THE GRAVEYARD BOOK … make room, Lemony Snicket’s A SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS … you’ve got company and competition for shelf space!" -- THE HORROR FICTION REVIEW

"WOW! What an absolutely horrible book (horrible meaning fantastic!) ... This book was laugh out loud funny.  I loved when Mom accidentally turned people to stone.  Dad's crazy attempts at running a pizza store were just hysterical." -- KIDS 'N' BOOKS

"This is the perfect book to be read aloud, read at night under the covers or simply devoured in one sitting. Robert Gray’s Eve Hallows and the Book of Shrieks simply shines with all of its fun creepiness, compelling characters and stellar writing. A MUST read for any MG fan!" -- WORD SPELUNKING

"Eve Hallows is highly imaginative without being too complex for its target audience. Fall in love with Eve, her friends and her family of adorable monsters. Lose yourself in a light read that will remind you of those days when your English teacher just want you to read something, anything. This book is it. The one that you wish you read when you were in grade school." -- JOYOUS READS

"Overall, this book was fantastic. It presents an admirable role model as well as a strong family unit which will benefit young readers. When so many books right now have presented teens in a not-so-flattering light, it is so wonderful to find a book like this one." -- BOOK COVER JUSTICE

Purchase (It's only 99 cents!)



EVE HALLOWS AND THE BOOK OF SHADOWS (BOOK 2)

Ever since encountering The Source and its minions on Halloween, Eve Hallows has found life surprisingly quiet … not to mention adorably boring!  So when Dad receives a Ouija message that she must return to Gravesville, Eve couldn't be happier—at least until she discovers the Director of URNS, also known as the Grim Reaper, has a special job for Eve … one that will lead her to New York City and to the true identity of The Source.
With The Book of Shrieks offering zero help and a new URNS agent driving the school boys—and Eve!—crazy, Eve's beginning to realize this whole saving-the-world nonsense isn't what it's cracked up to be.

All this and she still has to find The Book of Shadows....
Praise for Eve Hallows and the Book of Shadows:

"This book was perfectly horrible! Horrible meaning amazingly awesome, of course. Eve's world once again sucked me in and would not let go until this part of Eve's story was finished" -- LILI LOST IN A BOOK (ME! See my full review here)

"This is a perfect combination of YA, Horror, Paranormal and Fun!" -- BOOK LOVERS PARADISE

Author Robert Gray

Robert Gray is a writer.  If that job description doesn't impress you, how about fantasy writer? Too general? Well, he doesn't get insulted if you call him a horror writer. If horror's not your thing, then scratch out horror and replace it with suspense. And for the kiddies, you can slap on a YA or MG in front of that title.

Gray lives in Bushkill, Pennsylvania with his wife and two children.

Hey, humans, Eve here. Yay! I finally get the chance to talk to you without being interrupted by my biographer, Robert Something … My Jack, he's so annoying, and between you and me, a zombie would take one look at his head and shamble on by. Anyway, as fun as it is to make fun of my biographer, that's not why I'm here. Today, I'd like to talk to you about something very personal to me. Halloween. Now I know many of you are getting ready for this thing called Christmas ... seriously? A bearded weirdo sneaking into your homes? That's just too bizarre, if you ask me.

But Halloween, now that's a holiday that makes sense! And it's my mission to make Halloween as horrible here in the human world as it is in Gravesville. I mean c'mon, humans, the schools here are open ON HALLOWEEN DAY! And don't even get me started on the sad excuse for a celebration. Only one day of candy and dressing up? Really? It's pathetic. And where are all the horrible gifts? Where are the Halloween trees covered in glowing skulls and bats and strings of eyeballs? Where are the month long graveyard parties? WHERE'S THE SANITY, I say!

So I talked to my friend Carly Beth, and she told me that in order to get this adorable mess straightened out I need to get like everyone to sign a petition, and then I can send it to this president human, and then he can pass it along to some other old humans and make it a law--or something like that. So here's my letter to the president. I hope you'll all sign it (because I sort of told him in the letter that you already did):

Dear President Human,

My name is Eve Hallows and I'm fourteen years old, and I have brown hair, and, well, that's not really important, but the reason I'm writing to you is to ask--no, DEMAND--that Halloween become a national holiday. I mean, you have things like National Pickle Month and National Toilet Tank Repair Month and National Ice Cream Month (okay, that one's kind of horrible) but where's National Halloween Month? Yeah, nowhere. And that needs to change. Like immediately! So I've asked everyone on the spider webs, or inter-thing, or whatever it's called to sign this petition so you can see how important Halloween is to humanity. And, yeah, I got EVERYONE to sign it! So do whatever it is you do and make it happen. The sooner the better.

Yours Cruelly,
Evelyn Hallows

P.S. If you don't, I'll tell my mom.

Pretty horrible, right? So now it's up to you, humans. All of you need to do is sign the petition (or leave a comment below) and spread the word. Don't let Halloween continue to be less important than a pickle or toilet maintenance.

-Eve


Oh Eve, you're too funny! So you heard her, leave a comment below and support her movement to make Halloween a national holiday! I personally think this is a horrible idea! I love Halloween!
