Sneak Peek: The Bright Effect

HAPPY HALLOWEEN! My kids are sooooo looking forward to trick or treating tonight. Even I'm dressing up (Pictures to follow). Here's a "treat" for you from THE BRIGHT EFFECT (coming November 17th!) “Well, what about--ohmigod, I have an idea!” She drops the canary yellow bathrobe and insane cat slippers she’s carrying and dashes from the fitting room.
“Daphne?” I’d chase after her, but I’m still wearing the nightie and I am not about to show the other shoppers what my bra looks like.
Crap.
      Daphne lets out a loud and gleeful whoop when she resurfaces from the racks of junk and musty coats.
“Check it out!” She’s holding up some old hunk of black metal that upon closer inspection I realize is a Polaroid camera. An ancient one.
“Is that for my costume?”
“No, it’s for me. This is for you,” she says, handing me an ugly black and white patterned dress.
“Are those cats?” I ask, eyeing the dress with suspicion.
“Yes! I spotted it earlier but I couldn’t think of how to use it in a costume. Then when I saw the yellow bathrobe and those perfect cat slippers, I just knew.”
“Knew what?”
“Crazy. Cat. Lady.”
“You're joking.”
          “Why would I joke? This idea is both appropriate and hilariously hideous.”
“Couldn’t I just be a hobo?”
“Nope. Cat Lady all the way. You’re doing this, Amelia.”
          “Well, I do have cat leggings. They’re rainbow colored.”
