Desperate times…

Does Jason shit in the woods? I’m sure that if he does, he’s using a rabbit, not Charmin! 😆 (Please forgive me – that was the first dirty joke my dad ever told me. You know… A bear and a rabbit are taking a shit in the woods…)

In case the world needs to know these things… I’m officially ready to see Halloween stuff… Everywhere. So, ok world, if you could get on that…

Mike Ness is a Genius

If you’ve been here for any length of time you already know that I’m still a huge fan of Social D./Mike Ness. And, if you know know me, you’ll know that there hasn’t been one day in the past thirty years that I haven’t been planning for our inevitable Kidnapper/Victim life together.

We (The Dark Defender and myself) had our t-shirts for over a month before we realized – (he found out and told me… can’t leave that out!) – that Mike Ness is actually the big brain behind ‘Social Distancing Skelly‘! Dontcha just love ‘im?! You don’t have to be at my psychotic level of FanGirl to appreciate it.

Social D. Skelly Man Logo
Aren’t these great?! The spoof of the Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell album title is a new shirt.

I wonder how long it will be before he suggests we add masks to our tattoos!! 🤣

So… how’s your quarantine?

Try Not to Die: In Brightside by Mark Tullius
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

MORE THAN TWO DOZEN WAYS TO DIE…
Guess who found almost every single one?!

I found this scrolling through the Horror section on AudioBooksUnleashed. I already know that I like Mark Tullius, so that part is a no brainer. I saw the word ‘Interactive’ and my eyes lit up, my ears twitched…then I saw ‘Choose -Your-Own-Adventure..” I made a weird little ‘eiieeee!!! ::clapclapclap::’ sound, and I was redeeming my code before I could even figure out what the Hell that weird noise that just came out of my mouth was.
I had already started the book when I realized that I missed the part where this is BOOK TWO.in the series! Oh well, it’s good so far, let’s keep on truckin’.
I don’t think that the fact I died seven times by chapter twelve had anything to do with me skipping Book One. By the time I finished trying not to die In Brightside, I had died twenty times. I gotta chalk that up to poor impulse control, and bad decision making.
I’m hooked now though. I’m trying to decide if I should go back and read Book 1 now, or search the earth to see if Book Three is available because I’m starting to develop an eye twitch trying to figure out what is going to happen next!
It’s narrated by Maxine Denis. I don’t think I’ve listened to anything else she has narrated, but I think she did a great job here. An audio book can die from it’s narrator – I’ve shelved quite a few. This was really good, and I hope she stays throughout the series.

Until next time… Stay Healthy! Be Safe, Not Scared.

It’s Medication Time!

I’m about to start my binge on the latest show in the ‘Murphyverse’ – RATCHED. It sounded (at first) like it was to be the origin story of Nurse Ratched from One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest… (OMG, how cool is this gonna be!).

Louise Fletcher and Sarah Paulson as Nurse Ratched

Well, as much as I try to avoid anyone elses reviews before I read/watch/consume anything, a few opinions have gotten past my blinders. That doesn’t mean I’m making any judgements, but I think I’m going to go be more prepared for AHS: Pandemic Placeholder. That’s still awesome in my book! Besides, I’m going to miss this year’s American Horror Story post/discussion, so this will help.

I know Ryan Murphy CAN do the story I want, because I thought FEUD was great! It didn’t have the signature AHS feel, even though you knew it was Ryan Murphy’s show. ( I feel the need to keep repeating – That IS a good thing!)

But it is looking like it is not going to be the tragic story behind Ken Kesey’s (or even Miloš Forman’s) Nurse Ratched that I’m about binge. The article that slipped past my radar says that if you changed the name of the title character, you could just re-name this as American Horror Story: Asylum – But Not That One.

So, maybe I will be getting my AHS:2020 after all…

So, I’m still excited! The trailer looks fun & fucked up, as do the characters. Is anyone else going to be watching tonight? I’m curious to hear what other rego people like me are thinking right now, and after the first episode. IDC about all the other reviews, but what’s our horror community saying? Please, let’s discuss!!

I’ll keep you posted. Until then… stay safe, not scared!

Deep Rooted Fetish – Matt Shaw’s Revolting Romance

Matt literacised ‘Rule 34’

*Dental Trigger Warning*
Deep Rooted Fetish: A Revolting Romance by Matt Shaw

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


He’s gone from odontophobia to odontophilia, and made it work so well that a couple of new odontophilia aficionados may be born from this!
I have to say that Matt could have made this way more stomach turning, (he’s got the ability – I’ve seen him do it!), but he didn’t go for shock value and gross out factors. It’s a perfect blend to make this a book I couldn’t put down. Don’t get me wrong, this isn’t for beginners, but it’s…balanced.
I love the characters, I love their relationship, I really just love this story. Notice how it says Book One… It looks like Revolting Romance stories are going to stick around, yay! How can Matt top what he’s already written in the past though? It’s going to be fun finding out! I get the feeling that it won’t be pretty, though. As long as I smile like I did while reading Romance Is Dead, I’ll be a happy me. Matt does his dark humor dry. I love it.
Now… I need to get ‘Our Demons Within’. (Update, almost finished, it’s awesome!!) One book of Matt’s is never enough, I always need a follow up…

Regina Watts – ‘Dolcett Horrotica’

This work of transgressive horrotica explores concepts that some readers may find disturbing. Discretion is strongly advised.

Harold loves Dottie. Dottie loves Harold. Dottie and Harold both love Dolcett. Welcome to the first entry in a flavorful billionaire love story like you’ve never read before: American Psycho meets 50 Shades on a bad acid trip.

Harold Fleetwood is pathetic. Despite being the billionaire CEO of a major Fortune 500 company, he’s a divorcé in his mid-fifties who can hardly look a woman in the eye. His dark compulsions and sick fantasies fill him with shame and leave the Internet as his only outlet, not just for titillation, but for intimacy–until the day he discovers bratty Dottie Shipman, the sexiest secretary in the office, has a dirty little secret she’s been hiding.

Turns out, Dottie is as intrigued by taboo fantasies as Harold is. Not only that, but she’s the artist he’s spent countless hours fantasizing with while wasting time in his filthy-minded chat room for fellow lonely perverts. He’s terrified, and thrilled. After all these years of hiding his intense, twisted desires from everyone except the prostitutes he employs, sharing himself with this almost too-perfect woman seems like a recipe for deadly consequences from which no amount of money can save him.

Luckily for Harold, though, Dottie’s got another secret. An unbelievable secret. A secret that’s destined to change everything.

I cannot believe how awesome this turned out to be! No matter how hard I try, it’s hard to not start a new book without certain expectations… preconceived notions. I’m very happy to tell you how wrong those notions were! Don’t pick this up if you’re expecting a night of guilty pleasures – a bottle of wine, assorted cheeses, and fresh batteries aren’t on the menu tonight, because this isn’t a trashy bodice ripper. It ain’t your typical love story either, but Harold’s search for love and intimacy is a rocky road. Know what you’re reading, because seeing people leave shitty reviews in spite of the many, MANY warnings they were given is grating my sanity. (Amazon has hidden my reviews, yet I’m still reading reviews from people who state right there that they did not read the book!)

DOTTIE FOR YOU is a study in the extremity and violence of the human desire for intimacy.

Regina Watts

I know this isn’t my typical read, so this is far from a typical review, but this isn’t typical reading. There’s a whole new wave of horrotica coming, and it’s unlike anything we’ve seen before. No matter the sexuality, or the kink, everyone will be able to find something to ride out the wave on! (#fuckthoseclosets) I will most definitely be tearing through the rest this series, and I’ll be screaming its praises the entire time, so be prepared!

Stalk the author! Find Regina Watts on her website, on Painted Blind Publishing website, Goodreads, Instagram, Facebook, follow @WritesWatts on Twitter, BookSprout, and be sure to pick up Dottie, and all of Regina’s other books, on Amazon.

From The Dark Mind Of Sea Caummisar – 

‘Marsha’s Morbid Museum Of Macabre’

91MhsSiSOvL._SL1500_ Release Date August 14, 2020 – Preorder Now

Warning: This isn’t a very bloody book, however there are a couple scenes that deal with animals. If you have any sort of animal sensitivity…. this might not be the book for you. You’ve been warned!

Marsha’s fascination with displaying corpses in her home started in an innocent fashion.

Now, bored with her wealth, she has found that she enjoys fusing human bodies and animals together.

When her loyal maid, Sylvia, stumbles upon her secret, how will she react?

Beautiful_dirty_red-haired_lying_mermaid_tattoo_design_by_Chill07 How do you imagine Mila?

People who have hired help surrounding them eventually begin to not think of them – at all. They are merely a tool, an object in the background – not a human being, not a friend, and most definitely not something to be worried about.

Stronger Than Hate by Robert Essig

Francine watches, and she listens to them from below. TRAPPED. She is hurt, and imprisoned at the bottom of a sinkhole that opened up in her precious garden while they torment her.

Familiar faces look down upon her—the worst students she ever had the displeasure of teaching before she retired from the local high school. They snicker as money changes hands. They spit on her. Throw things at her.

And there’s no way in hell they’re going to get help.

But someone else knows about Francine’s predicament. Her neighbor Greg, another former student. The one whose peers called him Lazy Eye. The one who always looked to be accepted even at the expense of Francine’s safety. Does he have it in his heart to do the right thing, to come to his senses and call the police?

At the mercy of deviants, Francine Mosely must harness her inner strength to survive their torments, but how much can she take? Through guidance from the memory of her late husband she banishes herself from what is happening, retreating to her most precious memories, but what happens when the horrors around her infiltrate her mind? How much can she take before breaking down? Is Francine Mosely STRONGER THAN HATE?

Angel on my right shoulder… “Ahh, revenge, but at what cost?” Devil on my left shoulder leans over and whispers in my ear… “Forty bucks, and ¼ bag of weed. Me… “I’M THINKING!”

SG in STRONGER THAN HATE, by Robert Essig

It’s been a while since I’ve read human depravity at this level!
The story worked – the bully and the bullied, the mentality that allowed this to go on for so long, the drugs, (it had to have the drugs), and how so many kept a secret – it’s all there, working together, and believable. Till the very ending bit
and that’s the reason I only gave 4 stars instead of 5. Because of ‘The Dark Ones‘.

WARNING

*Not really – but possible spoilers ahead*
It’s only my personal opinion, others may completely disagree. ‘The Dark Ones’ took the story somewhere that I didn’t think was needed. As a coping mechanism – yes. But, the bit at the end was something I think the story could have done without.

How to connect with the author: Find him on his blog Robert Essig’s Confusions, Delusions, and Formidable Impressions, Facebook, follow @Robert_Essig on Twitter, Amazon, and Goodreads.
