The countdown to the Bloody Valentine Horror Event has begun!
For those not in the know, this is my annual anti-valentine event for horror writers, and all those looking to get away from the sappy mush of romance on February 14th. This year we’ve changed from a blog hop to a Facebook event, but we will still bring the “bad love” to eager readers.
Here’s how it works:
Welcome to the Bloody Valentine Horror Event
This event, happening on February 14th, is a showcase for the bad side of love: the rejected lovers, the spurned spouses, and the generally lovelorn. It is a celebration of everything anti-valentine and down with romance.
Here’s how to participate:
Join the event.
Invite people (optional, but appreciated).
Then on February 14th post something that fits our “Bad Love” theme.
It can be a poem, a drabble, flash fiction, an excerpt, a tale of a broken heart, a historic tidbit of love gone wrong, a video, photos, just about anything as long as it fits the theme. In other words—No Mushy Stuff. You may also post links to blog posts or stories posted elsewhere if, again, they fit the theme. It also doesn’t have to be dark and scary, a bit of black humour works as well. You may also include book links or your website links in your posts.
So come join the fun on February 14th, and dispense with the sappy romance. Embrace heartbreak, love gone wrong, romantic mayhem and tragedy, hopefully with that little splash of humour and blood. It’s time to discover the Bad Side of Love.
Although this is an open event, in addition we will have special guests popping in with some darkly delightful Valentine goodies. There will also be free books be offered up as well.
Featured authors scheduled to appear are:
John Linwood Grant
And of course your host (that’s me), A. F. Stewart
