Come Denizens of the Dark to Horror Hall!

Greetings all you fans of things that go bump in the night, you scribes of dark fiction! I invite you to enter into a place of shadows. Where the blood runs red and cold,  where shivers chase up you spine, and the monsters come out to play.

This is Horror Hall!

Horror Hall

This horror event is part of the Brain to Book Cyber Convention and happens on Facebook from April 7th until April 9th . Horror fans and authors alike can come and chat, post, discuss all things horror and have a good time. Share your stories, excerpts, talk books, movies, your favorite horror tropes. There will be discussions, authors popping in, and an updating of the B2BCyCon horror events. So please join us in the virtual world. We’ll be serving blood wine and eyeball appetizers.

Support the ThunderClap!

bloodspring

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.

Panel Discussions

Live YouTube discussions on various book topics. The horror highlight is the panel: Horror, Thriller, Suspense…What is the difference? 

Character CosPlay

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.

Cover Wars

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

Brain to Books Cyber Convention and Book Expo

Yes, I should be writing and finishing my current novel (Ghosts of the Sea Moon, the one that used to be a novella). Unfortunately for the book I have two gods, various ghosts, and a pack of sea monsters pouting in my head and not talking to me. So I’m taking a break and penning this post on the Brain to Books Cyber Convention and Book Expo instead.

Read on for my best P.T. Barnum spiel…

Updates and Events

V8A98C0U96

I have some quick writing news and the lowdown about an online event I’m participating in this weekend.

First the news. I have a story appearing in the upcoming issue of The Sirens Call eZine – Issue 28 Terrifying Tales. I’m especially fond of this dark tale, called Arthur’s World, and I hope you check it out later this month when the ezine is published.  I’ll share a link when it drops.

I also have a story still in the running for the upcoming Occult Detective Quarterly magazine. Fingers-crossed for that one, but the competition is tough.

Now for the event.

This weekend, August 12th-14th the wacky fun of the Efestival of Words is taking place! And I am participating again this year.

My events happen on Saturday, August 13th.

At Noon EDT, I’ll be one of the writers in the Build a Story Twitter Challenge panel, where you can watch a crazy multi-author story unfold one tweet-length piece at a time.

And then later that day I’ll be appearing for a 30 minute Q&A session at 4:00 PM EDT.

So please pop over and join the delightful mayhem.

Here’s where you can find the full schedule: The Efestival of Words Schedule of Events
