👻 Samhain / Halloween 🎃
I love a random Horror Art search on Google, but I ran into Becky’s work on LinkdIn. Weird, right? Not as weird as it used to be… I’ve been connecting with a bunch of horror authors and others in the Horror community there. People are becoming more accepting, or horror is more acceptable – IDK, but it’s about time!
Anyway… online, online, online, and I see her ‘Wear A Mask’ piece! OMG, it’s awesome! Check out all four Covid inspired ones. (I posted them a little larger down at the bottom.)
I went to her site to see everything, and she has a store, yay!! These are on shirts 😁🤘 NOTE TO ARTIST: You know what you NEED to be selling Bec – FACEMASKS! I would SO wear a ‘face’ facemask!!
They come on different shirts, tote bags, iPhone covers, and hangable prints for home or work. Oh, dog tags, too! Neat! This isn’t a sales pitch I swear to Dog, I’m just excited. If there was a textbook horror nerd, it would be me! If she sold stickers…
You can check out more of of Becky Doyon‘s work on her website, and here’s her Instagram. If you’d like to commission something she’s on LinkdIn. Ok, that was fun for a minute. But, you know what all the sites are for… (not JUST stalking anymore!) Connect via Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Tumblr.
When I picked up TRY THE NEW CANDY and saw the added bonus of the illustrations I knew I’d found something special. Now I look forward to the illustrations almost as much as new stories – almost. Both covers are cool, but who doesn’t love an unattached head?! The slick ass new cover is just in time for this Halloween slasher, too! It may not stick around, so you should make sure you own both… It’s money in the bank – one will be a collectors item.
You’ve read it, right? If I heard a ‘no’ out there somewhere, it’s the perfect time to fix that faux pas. Scary Bastard expands on one of the SSs in Try The New Candy. The book just celebrated it’s first birthday, and it grew two whole chapters for it’s b-day! Now the slick ass cover is on ‘The Author’s Preferred Edition‘ 😉 What better time than a brisk October night to read a blood drenched tale that takes place on Halloween, and is packed with more craziness than a normal person could handle?! NEVER! There’ll never be a better time than now! So… stop trying to pretend you’re normal, and GO GET SCARY BASTARD!
What do a child killer, a hopeful special effects artist, a duo of budding teen psychopaths, a student screwing teacher and a mutated maniac with his lower jaw missing have in common? They’re all out this Halloween. How will their paths cross? Who’s killing who? Can anyone survive the bloodbath or are they all destined to drown in a pool of warm red? This slasher nightmare gives you a seat beside the killer but don’t get too comfortable, there’s a Scary Bastard on the loose… (This book includes 9 horrifying illustrations to guide you through the terror!)Goodreads

Ember Oaks is not your typical asylum and these are not your typical stories. Within these walls are deep dark secrets that give the entire building it’s depth. Each patient tells their chilling and terrifying stories about how they ended up at Ember Oaks. These stories will have your mind twisted sideways as they keep you up at night.
I love asylum stories, but there aren’t many out there that are worth picking up. And I’ve picked up a lot of ’em. A lot. That makes the really good ones stand out even more though, and I’m happy that I can add TWISTED SIDEWAYS to that invisible list in my head!
I was excited right from rip when I realized it’s a collection of short stories, encased in one. The author, Allisha McAdoo, walks us through Ember Oaks, and introduces us to some of the asylum’s more interesting residents. We learn their stories, and find out how they came to permanently reside in this seventh circle of Hell. (But it has nice curtains!)
Some of these stories are sick! They’re ALL twisted. And TWISTED SIDEWAYS is definitely worth reading. Grab a copy, you won’t be disappointed. Plus it’s hot off the presses, you can brag that you read it before all your friends! (pssst…hey… it’s free today – grab your copy today!) If you miss the sale, the book is available on KU – bonus points! +5 additional bonus points ‘cuz I love saying McAdoo! 😜

In Games 1, Sara won Donny’s twisted game. In Games 2, she became his apprentice (collecting cash from debtors of Sanger Entertainment, an adult arena of illegal events). In Games 3, we got to know Donny just a little bit better. Sara found out she was pregnant and agreed to keep the baby (under the condition he helped her make a pain maze). She does not want the baby, and has plans to get an abortion that he doesn’t know about. This is where the story begins…..
After two long months of preparations, Sara finally has her maze, and she is anxious to get started. The 12 prisoners are in place, and ready to be Sara’s tortured little mice.
One of the maze participants, Bas, just might have what it takes to survive, and possibly even work with Sara and Donny.
Little do they know that Bas is a different kind of criminal, and he is dangerous. Will they figure it out before getting him too deeply involved with their work? Before everything is compromised?
I actually shouted out loud towards the end. Something that I wanted to happen – happened, and now I don’t know how I feel about it!
The only thing I do know for sure is that Games 5 is going to be intense!
Games 4 – Maze will be released July 10th, 2020. You can preorder your copy on Amazon now.
Ashwood. A quiet Midwest town where nothing much happens. That all changes when the mutilated bodies of a young couple are discovered in the woods. Chief of Police Cynthia Carver initially dismisses it as an animal attack. However, the discovery of sexual assault against one of the corpses leaves her baffled. As more bodies pile up, Cynthia will discover the assailant isn’t an ordinary animal. And unless she can stop it, she may be his next victim…
When his balls are blue and the penis rises, the wolf comes out!
I don’t think that I’ve read anything by Evan Romero before, but I’m looking for more now.
I’m dying to know what happened to BloodBoundBooks‘ RedLine Series! After a rock solid beginning with Toxic Love by Kristopher Triana, followed up by #Horrible by KJ Moore, the series died off…no note, no cab fare. Just gone. Only a wet spot left behind.
Hornwolf is no longer available on Amazon, or on BloodBoundBooks‘ website. So, it looks like my main point of this post is to say ‘Suck it, losers!’
I’m just kidding!! And, I’m sure you’ll be able to find a copy (unless something really weird happened) if you contact BloodBoundBooks, or the author. In the meantime, I’ll try to find answers re: RedLine, and I’ll keep you updated!
Check out Hornwolf on Goodreads
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Very vivid details in this book, I almost puked – good job 👍
I’ve been staying away from the extreme gross-out stuff, so this was a fun escape from Coronageddon.
I love the cat running around in this story!
From The Dark Mind Of Sea Caummisar –
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?
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.
This is how Sylvia is seen by her whiny, and overly demanding boss. She is disrespected by Marsha daily, yet dismissed as nothing to be concerned about. Not even when Sylvia is tasked to take care of the east wing, and Marsha’s special collection.
Eventually Sylvia begins to believe that with her knowledge she has the upper hand, and the power struggle begins!
Who will emerge the victor, the boss, the HBIC (Head Bitch In Charge)? Well, the title isn’t ‘Sylvia’s Sinister Salon of Sin’, is it?
Don’t miss the other items on display in the museum… Preorder your copy today!
The dark mind of Sea Caummisar brings us a story that the director of ‘Boxing Helana‘ would call FUCKED UP!
Acrotomophilia: The deriving of sexual gratification from fantasies or acts involving an amputee.
After Willard’s wife was disfigured in a car accident, he found himself to be even more attracted to her.
Then his obsession grew more everyday.
“Sometimes in life, people have a knack for things. Some people have a knack for art, or playing a musical instrument. It’s almost as if they were born with some sort of talent. Willard’s knack just happened to be abducting women and keeping them tied up.”
After an accident that causes his wife of 40 years to lose her leg, Willard sits in the hospital at her bedside and tries to sort through the various feelings he’s having.
And which one of those feelings – exactly, is causing the tent to form at the front of his pants?
