I did it!
I finally came up with a proper name for the month of October. But I’m getting ahead of myself.
For those who don’t know me, I’m part of the Samhain Horror crew, and like Sy Sperling in those old Hair Club for Men commercials, I’m not just a writer, I’m also a horror fan. Unlike Sy, I still have my hair.
Now, for years and years, I’ve dedicated the month of October to all things dark and scary. From November 1st until September 30th, I’m always on the lookout for the best books and movies to delve into once the calendar flips to my favorite month of the year. My to-read pile is taller than Snooki and my movie queue is locked and loaded.
So, what’s the name I came up with for October? Let me tell you, it’s been a struggle to think of one that has a chance to stick and maybe, just maybe, become a movement. Forget the Occupy folks. This is where it’s at. Are you ready? Prepare yourselves for…Terrortober! It’s all terror, all the time.
Thanks to Samhain, I get to share the Terrortober fun with you. There are a lot of monsters rolling around my brain pan, and sometimes they have to come out…on the printed page, that is.
Just in time for Terrortober 2012 is the print release of my novel, Evil Eternal. Does it have an undead priest who can perform minor miracles and kick some serious butt? Check. Is the villain an immortal creature that sheds skin like a snake, can speak like a concierge at the Waldorf one minute and pull your head off the next? Check. Are there demons…you know, the scary, shape-shifting, killing machine kind? Check. Got any punk rock people who wise crack their way through hell’s inferno? Check. How about a love interest, as impossible as it may seem in all this carnage and insanity? Double check.
As the folks at the Ginger Nuts of Horror said, “Evil Eternal is one of the most refreshing entries in the balls to the wall type of horror novel in many a long year.”
If you have a heart condition, are with child or have any other physical impairment, you may enter the Evil Eternal ride at your own risk.
And to thank all of you who have not only supported me, but the other outstanding authors with Samhain’s horror line, I’ll send you a signed Evil Eternal bookmark. Just give me a shout at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and address and I’ll get it right out.
Until then, have a wicked Terrortober. Spread the word.
