I haven’t been posting a lot lately, been in one massive creative rut for quite some time, so when I decided to really start working at getting back at it I made the decision not to go back to the same standard type of posts (i.e. Waiting on Wednesday). Spotlight On is a new feature that focuses on the ones I’m most excited about in the coming month.
October, as expected, brings a slew of creepy reads to get us all into the season.
