Happy Halloween, all! Time once again to see all that I’ve been getting up to, and since it’s a special day, I’ve got some spooky stuff lined up. But first, if you’re looking for a last minute read that will creep you out, or one that will amuse you and not be as creepy but still be weird, might I offer the following suggestion:
Now that that’s out of the way, let’s look at where I’ve been in the past week or so.
My latest review for Books by Violet covered one of my favorite new discoveries: Baba Yaga’s Assistant. I love this book. It doesn’t hurt that it’s about Baba Yaga, who’s one of my favorite folklore characters, but it’s also the way she’s used. I love the combination of folklore and modern life, I love the main character, I love the art, I love this book. Be sure to check out the full review full of my love here!
I’m back with the Ladies of Horror flash fiction picture project – the above was my image for this month. It gave me a ton of ideas, but ultimately I went with something that I hope will creep you out this Halloween. Read my entry here, then be sure to click around to read other fantastic, free reads to get you in the holiday mood!
You can’t have autumn without leaves, right? Well not only have I kidnapped the HorrorAddicts.net blog, but I’ve done it with a story all about fall leaves – and decorating. By now you’ve probably figured out that there’s more to it than that, but I’ll let you discover what else is up, yourself. Check out the story here.
And I’ll be nice and not include a picture for this next one – if you haven’t read my clown piece The Moments Before, that’s the feature for another kidnapped blog on HorrorAddicts.net’s blog. A strange little piece about a new take on the end of the world, I have to say it pleases me. Check it out here.
