Halloween Haunts

“I’m a huge Halloween fan. I decorate my house inside and out and I’m considered THE Halloween person in my family. A few years ago I thought we could use some new Halloween themed songs, so I took it upon myself to write 10 songs. I then got some awesome musicians to bring them to life. We tried to cover as many types of music as possible to appeal to everyone’s different  musical tastes at a Halloween party. The result was our CD, “Halloween Haunts”. If you go to the following link you can hear and purchase all of the songs. https://halloweenhauntsrevisited.hearnow.com/

Trick or Tarot: The Oracle for Halloween… and Beyond: A Halloween Tarot Kickstarter Campaign

Trick or TarotFrom Duck Soup Productions: A creepy, kooky, altogether ooky new Tarot pack, in standard and deluxe Jumbo editions. 

Knock-Knock… It’s Trick Or Tarot! 

It isn’t the first Halloween-themed Tarot deck, and it won’t be the last; but my hope is that it will become the best, most-loved and most-used. Halloween is my favorite holiday and one that is perfectly suited to the Tarot. After all,

“At twelve o’clock on Halloween / Many strange things can be seen” — (Vintage greeting card verse)

More Than Just a Novelty Deck

Each of the creator’s tarot and oracle packs has its origin in the fabulous and fanciful, but under the hood they are thoughtfully and carefully crafted with an eye towards the traditional themes and symbols of Tarot. Far from being merely a “gimmick” deck, TRICK or TAROT is designed as a working pack aimed at practitioner and novice alike.

This Kickstarter has already reached its goal, but you still have a few days to pledge and get in on the rewards and perks HERE!
