Last year around this time, (a little later, maybe) I started reading holiday themed horror books – to review on a new website I was a part of. I went crazy! Zombies, serial killers, supernatural, humor horror ranging from light & silly all the way to the darkest of the dark. And everything betwixt & between!
It was some of my best work. I was calling it my Holiday Horror Binge, and I was really proud of it. And in one mood swing, it was all gone. The site’s owner locked down and closed up with no warning. Everything I had done, even before the Holiday Of Horror, was gone, and… silly me… I didn’t have back up notes. I wasn’t big into Goodreads, and I didn’t want to leave identical reviews on my blog and on Amazon. I still don’t remember everything I did for that, but I think the number was around 12.
That was when I decided, after two attempts of working under someone else, That it was time for my own Blog.
I rewrote a couple of those Holiday Horrors from scratch, like A HACKED UP HOLIDAY MASSACRE. I had to skim through the book again, (the notes I take while reading would make you laugh), and they probably turned out better than before. But, my habits have changed!
I have a very long list of books I want to tackle for my 2013 Holiday Horror Binge & Purge Blog Event.
I did a quick roll through one part of my storage and came up with these lists…
