I’m currently running a thunderclap to extend an open invitation to all horror writers and fans of horror fiction! As one of the featured genres in the Brain to Books Cyber Convention and Book Expo this April, horror will present scary goodies galore for both author and reader.
Welcome to the Blood Spring!
The horror events will bring forth dark terrors, human and non-human, oozing out from primal corners of the universe and the pages of author’s books to infest the convention.
Here are some of the horror event highlights:
The Book Expo
This is a book showcase on the Brain to Books Convention site, arranged by genre. So horror fans can go and browse with ease. No fuss, no muss.
The Blog Hop
A genre based hop for websites designed to showcase books and authors. The horror hop has a theme of Walk with the Monsters, and will focus on the terrifying creatures our authors create Zombies, vampires, ghouls, ghosts, demons, and serial killers are most welcome. A scavenger hunt is also planned for the hop with a grand prize.
The Genre Tour
Here you get a taste of the top genres featured in the convention, with previews, sneak peeks and up close and personal looks at what these genres have to offer. The Horror Tour will bring chills, scares, books and creepy characters right to you, all under the theme Out of the Shadows, Welcome to the Blood Spring.
Live YouTube discussions on various book topics. The horror highlight is the panel: Horror, Thriller, Suspense…What is the difference?
Authors don their best garb and resume the role of one of their characters (readers are also welcome). The picture is submitted along with a character card and you vote best costume. Zombie lovers unite! Also, vampires, demons, and the odd slayer or dark arts practitioner.
This contest is all about judging those books by their covers. For three days, readers can vote for their favorite cover. So bring on your best and most gruesome horror cover!
So please spread the word and support the Thunderclap: Horror at the B2BCyCon
