Twisted Festivities and Other News

I never thought I’d say this, but I’m actually excited about the holiday season.

I know! How weird is that?!

Why am I so excited, you may ask. No, Santa has not put me on the Nice List (har!) but Rebecca Treadway (whom you might remember from this interview) has invited me to participate in the Twelve Days of Creepfest Blog Hop.


For twelve glorious December days, I will be introducing you to some of the most cutting edge and talented artists in the horror genre, plus exposing a peek at my own dark side. I am so excited about this I can’t even tell you. I often experience horror at Christmastime — did you see the videos of people losing their damned minds on Black Friday? Pepper spray, beatings, absolute barbaric behavior over a $2.84 waffle iron, for the love of Jaybuz — so a good dose of REAL horror is just the ticket to get into the mood of the season. Heh.

Keep your eyes open! And you might want to bring a change of underwear. You know, just in case.

The Creepfest Blog Hop starts December 13th for twelve glorious days. Don’t miss it!

  1. Horror terrifies me. I don’t like to spend my spare time in that state of feeling. It will be an interesting blog hop though as I know it’s a massive market. Enjoy the hopping and have a great Christmas.

    • Hi Rebecca 🙂

      One of the things I’d like to explore through this blog hop is the different types of horror. For instance, Stephen King is categorized as a horror writer, but his work encompasses many genres. I hope you’ll keep an open mind for some of the authors you’ll meet and who often write in more than one genre.

      Thanks for the good wishes, and a great holiday season to you, as well!

  2. Heyyy…it’s the other Rebecca. 🙂 It’s horror writers, although there are some artists in the mix but we all wear many hats. I prefer “dark fiction” personally. Horror has become synonymous with slasher films are far off the mark. Some are Dark Fantasy, some Dystopian – urban to classic vampires or zombies and things in-between. Glad you’re excited about the Holidays this year, Netta. I for one, always had everything done in the summer time because most of my friends and two family members have their birthdays in December. If there wasn’t a Christmas in December, I’d still go broke due to that. I always recouped my losses, for my birthday is in January. haha! See you on the Hop and don’t forget the Vampiric short fic of yours!

  3. Poe’s stuff is pretty dark… to merely call it creepy could be the understatement of the century! Stephen King in comparison looks like child’s play.


  4. You’re going to hate me, but I just can’t get into King. I love Haven on tv and have tolerated a couple of his movies, but I cannot stand his writing style. I even attempted to read “The Colorado Kid” because I like Haven so much, but it didn’t go well. Poe, on the other hand, thrills me to the very depths of my soul, although I generally dislike horror because it turns my imagination loose, and once that happens, I scare the bejeesus outta myself.

    • Darlin’, I don’t hate anybody and certainly not because of their choice of reading material 🙂 I am very much in touch with the scaring myself, but yet I still can’t stay away from Sai King. Poe actually scares me more. I think you’ll be really interested in Monday’s post, where I talk about horror and what it means to me. You may find yourself very surprised 🙂
