Bitchin’ About TV Shows and Stories That Will Make Your Skin Crawl

Howdy all! Here’s what happened this week.

Upcoming Events

I’m joining A.F. Stewart’s Bloody Valentine event next month. I’ll be sharing a love gone wrong short story for the event.

I’m also hosting another blog post event for Women in Horror Month that will be a kind of blog tour of interviews with us women horror writers. Still working on the details and will post the schedule when it’s finalized.

The Movies

This week I bitched about season 6 of American Horror Story.

Initially, I liked the real crime-drama format. Something new and original for the series. I also liked that most of the main characters were played by two actors. But I also feel there were too many characters. I would have much preferred that they stuck to the historical story and ghost aspect of the theme. Throwing in the inbred family had it’s creep factor, but it wasn’t necessary. Without them, there could have been much better character development. READ MORE

The Stories

In an effort to read more fiction in 2017, I features a novel, anthology, or short story I’ve read and enjoyed over the past week. Below is this week’s read:

Rebirth by A. F. Stewart
This week I’m featuring the story Rebirth in Pen of the Damned, a clandestine collection of the most eclectic minds of horror. These anguished souls have stripped free their pretenses for your grotesque delight. Rebirth is a dark and poetic short story that gave me the chills. My skin crawled while I read. READ IT

Story a Day in May

I just joined Story a Day in May today. I had found this event last year and put it on the Visionary Press calendar, but forgot about it until I checked email this morning and found the reminder. At first I posted I wished I had time to do this event. Then I realized that was an excuse and decided to make time. This is the perfect challenge for me right now. I even dragged Blaze McRob and Lisa McCourt Hollar into this challenge. We’ll see if any of the other Visionary Press authors bite. Drop by hear daily to read a story. I’ll also post it on the Friday Frights website.

I personally plan to use this challenge to teach myself not to over edit my work. I’m only allotting 2 hours at most to write and edit each story. No limits on word count. Now I’m off to edit the first story. Wrote it in 30 minutes this morning.
