Halloween: New ideas with you in mind...and a giveaway!

 We have a pretty amazing black and white Halloween story in the current issue... as well as a circus party, a movie night and a bake sale of MONSTER proportions.

Amidst the excitement of our Halloween 2012 issue hitting the shelves of Amazon.com (and Amazon.ca!), I want to take the time to tell you a little bit about what you will find in its pages and what you WON'T.
 
I took a few MONSTER steps back in the last year to reflect on how we could do something fresh and different for YOU this Halloween season. While you won't find lots of costumes and carved pumpkins in our pages, we have really stretched the decorating and celebrating concepts of how one might reinvent the thoughts and feelings that surround this holiday. What other books and magazines provide in the way of traditional and iconic Halloween fare was at the top of our re-imagine list, and with a stylish step forward we choose to take the "road less travelled" -- and a spooky and surprising road it is! Follow our blog over the next month to get a clear peek on what HALLOWEEN WITH MATTHEW MEAD 2012 has in store for you and take part in some fun prize giveaways
and additional great ideas along the way.  Like us on our Facebook page and comment often
 for a direct dialogue with me.

Check out this sneak peek at our Table of Contents:

(THIS CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED)

Best,
 Matthew
