You need creepy stories during October, right? Well here are some free ones that will take only a few minutes to peruse – but will hopefully unsettle you, just the same. I love taking part in the Ladies of Horror flash picture prompts each month – these are some of my more recent additions. Be … More Updates – Free Fiction!
It’s time to see what I’ve been up to whilst I was Nano-ing last month! No matter the time of year, this is a great read that combines family and the supernatural. As always, Raina Telgemeier weaves interesting plot with relatable characters. Read my full review for Books by Violet here! Also for Books … More Free fic, reviews, and all that fun stuff
It’s that time of year! By which I mean Krampusnacht. And if you don’t know who Krampus is…SIGH. Here: This will help. It really pains me that there are so many amazing Christmas monsters out there (No, seriously, you have no idea. There are loads) and yet people really aren’t aware of it. While I’m … More Happy Krampusnacht!
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 … More Free Fiction, New Reviews, & Things to Creep You Out
I know, it’s a new week, but I’m probably sleeping the convention off, and I feel like giving you guys something to entertain yourselves with. We’ll get back to rants and weirdness soon enough, I swear. Sometimes a story comes from a deep emotional place, and a lot of these times that’s a great big … More Excerpt: The Guru
Today’s excerpt is again from Lost in the Shadows, and it’s one of those stories where the idea hit me hard but it took me a while to give myself permission to write it. I’m not a hard sci-fi writer by any means, but I love the more emotional and literary work of Ray Bradbury. … More Excerpt: Across the Universe
Since today is my birthday (feel free to leave your gratuitous praise and adoration in the comments), I figured I’d post something appropriate. Since it’s a con week, I am going to be lazy and totally pimp my excerpts all this week because I am old and I can. It is a known fact that … More Short: September Children
Another quirky, open-ended little piece that I really like. I draw a lot of inspiration from Brian Froud when I’m out walking and when I’m collecting images. I love imagining where roads and paths may lead and what other purposes they might have. I’ve gotten some great ideas from this practice, and for whatever reason … More Prose: The Transition
I’m sure I’ve probably posted this one before, but I like it, and it keeps with the faerie theme that’s been on my mind this week. This one is also from Lost in the Shadows, but before that it originated on my deviantart account (that I haven’t updated in ten thousand years). I like to … More Prose: Payment
I was running around all weekend, so unfortunately I missed the chance to do something for midsummer. Never fear, I’ll probably play catch up this week if I can get a particular guest blogger to weigh in on the holiday. Until then, however, I thought I’d post a faerie-themed short. True, this was written with … More Prose: Beltane in the Modern World
