From 13 Award-Winning, USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHORS Comes A Night You'll Never Forget.

It's that time again! The Monster community is abuzz with whispers of the most anticipated party of the year. This deliciously exclusive event has tongues wagging even amongst the who's who of the monster community. It will once again be held at an undisclosed location on All Hallows Eve.

Don't worry all you underprivileged socialites, The Monster Ball isn't just for vampires, witches, and werewolves. Other creatures of the night have as much of a chance to attend. Watch for your ticket but not in the mail. The silvery slip of parchment is said to appear in your hand by the light of the moon.

If you find yourself a fortunate recipient best to keep it to yourself. There are some who would kill for the chance to attend. Because as every good monster knows... what happens at the ball, stays at the ball.

xoxo, Elvira

You took something I need. I have something you want. Tonight at The Monster Ball our fates will finally intertwine. Death or desire... the ending to our story is entirely up to you.

Gabriella has always been able to communicate with ghosts, but it turns out that might be the least of her problems. Will the sexy stranger she meets at the ball reveal a side of her she never knew she had?

In a different world, we would be each other’s obsession. But that isn’t this world. In this world, fate will bring us together, and destiny will destroy us.

Demons may own them, but tonight is theirs. Time to let the inhibitions fly.

Selkies are lovers by nature, but when a magpie steals the pelts of her kinswomen, Ada will rise above her instincts to face down the evil holding them captive. It doesn't hurt that she catches the brooding eye of the magpie's necromancer guard.

I would risk everything for him. But seeing him again at The Monster Ball is nearly my undoing. When magic and desire collide, my life will rest in the hands of an assassin.

After countless years as a ghost, an unexpected invitation to The Monster Ball is too tempting to ignore. But he might prove to be the biggest temptation of all.

One night can change everything . . . Curses, star-crossed lovers, and enemies collide when a lonely banshee accepts an invitation to The Monster Ball.

Sabine Lasalle has no memory of her life as a secret agent. Regardless, her broody handler insists she complete her mission to hunt down a rogue wizard at The Monster Ball.

He was the mission she let herself get too close to. Now, it’s time to show the cocky vampire playboy what she’s capable of. Hell hath no fury like a dhamphir spy scorned.

Once I was lost, and at The Monster Ball, I found a fate I never knew I was looking for.

When Princess Sarah is invited to The Monster Ball, she’s thrilled for a night away from the palace and the eyes of the public. But another guest has different plans, leaving Sarah to wonder if she’ll ever make it back to her kingdom.

He’s promised to seduce the princess in exchange for passage home. Not exactly the most dangerous mission he’s ever accepted. But what happens when his target turns out to be the one who got away?

If you thought last year’s Monster Ball was a spectacle…

you will not want to miss this year’s!!!! The proprietor of the notorious Monster Ball has cultivated a reputation for hosting the most over-the-top Halloween party for supernaturals.  Each year’s ball is a complete surprise, new location and theme, and better than the last.  It’s the one place that supernaturals of all kinds can come together for a fun, or frolic, or a flaming frothy libation, with the only rule being; murder is not allowed.

Bam Shepherd and her gaggle of “Monster” author aficionados have created a crazy and unique anthology with The Monster Ball.  A carefully orchestrated “playbook” gives each author the basic requirements for their tale: specific details about the venue, the bouncers and bartenders, etc.  The authors then craft a short story around the ball and include interactions with other story characters in the anthology.  The result is a Spooktacular treat for the reader!

The Monster Ball Year 1, especially the interaction of the different characters from different stories, was great! Year 2 is even better!! The authors really ran with this idea and made their crossovers more involved, with some even using these other protagonists in small, supporting rolls in their story.

I enjoy anthologies.  It’s a lot like going to a specialty restaurant and getting their sample platter.  You can get a wide variety of tastes all in one sitting.  The Monster Ball is no exception.  Each author brings a different voice and personality to the compilation.  Some of the characters even get spin-offs from their introductions at the Ball.

The Monster Ball is so much more than a book.  Bam Shepherd has a great Monster Ball FB page with interactive posts throughout the year.  Each promo and release is done with the anthology’s authors being initially unidentified.  Readers are encouraged to participate in a fun competition to see who can match the most authors with their respective story when it releases.  After you really get hooked, if you aren’t already from Year 1, plan on attending an actual monster ball, sponsored by The Monster Ball, next summer at Once Upon A Book author signing in Frakenmuth, MI.  For more details go to
