Pledging Kappa Kappa Tau

Published September 27, 2015 by Shadow Girl

SCARY, MACABRE, GOTH, HORROR… 

SCREAM QUEENS IS ONE OF MY NEW FAVORITE SHOWS!

The pilot is available to stream on Amazon FOR FREE.

Catch last Tuesday’s premiere HERE.

Wallace University is rocked by a string of murders. Kappa House, the most sought-after sorority for pledges, is ruled with an iron fist (in a pink glove) by its Queen Bitch, Chanel Oberlin (Emma Roberts). But when anti-Kappa Dean Cathy Munsch (Jamie Lee Curtis) decrees that sorority pledging must be open to all students, and not just the school’s silver-spooned elite, all hell is about to break loose, as a devil-clad killer begins wreaking havoc, claiming one victim, one episode at a time. Part black comedy, part slasher flick, SCREAM QUEENS is a modern take on the classic whodunit, in which every character has a motive for murder… Or could easily be the next blood-soaked casualty.

Emma Roberts is not my favorite person in the world, (not because of her AHS roles, but because of who she is as a person), but I couldn’t have cast a better actress to play the Queen Bitch On Campus – Chanel Oberlin. Cathy Munsch, the Dean of Wallace University, is played by actual scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis – and she is at the top of her game! (Still a babe, too.) One of Chanel’s little minions is played by Zombie Land’s Abigail Breslin, and it took me half of the pilot episode to figure out where I knew her from. You’ll recognize many more Scream Queens – so don’t let me spoil all the fun! (True Blood beefcake, a brother from a boy-band, and a Reno 911alum… just to name a few!)

“Shut up, you don’t die from getting your face burned off.”

~ Chanel Oberlin

Scream Queens is ‘campy’, it’s over the top, and packed full of iconic horror references – making me sad that I watched it alone, not having a person next to me to punch with excitement every time I caught something, or just wanted to fall off the bed laughing.

 

SADIE THE SADIST by Zané Sachs

Published July 22, 2014 by Shadow Girl

cover

Dedicated to all the good, hardworking people in supermarkets and other service industries.

“My gaze falls on the machetes lined up on the magnet strip, immaculate and shiny after soaking in the chlorine solution I use for cleaning. I’ve been reading up online: Chlorine can remove visual evidence of blood, but to completely destroy hemoglobin, so it can’t be detected by forensics, you need a cleaning agent like hydrogen peroxide. Peroxy, the stuff that squirts out of the power hose I use to mop this concrete floor. I’m the last one out at night, so that job falls on me.”
― Zané Sachs, Sadie the Sadist: X-tremely Black Humor/Horror

Synopsis
Like most of us, Sadie feels undervalued and frustrated. Employed by a supermarket, she plots to murder coworkers—or lure them into the employee bathroom for a quickie. Sick of being treated like a robot, she taps into a powerful (and deranged) alter-ego and transforms into Sadie the Sadist.
READER BEWARE: This book contains graphic violence, psycho/sexual incidents, and Sadie’s favorite recipes. X-tremely Black Humor.

Sadie is my new hero, and every time I get that little psychotic itch at work – (or anywhere), I can live vicariously through her!
I love dark humor, and Sadie is a genius. (I literally snorted within the first few pages – she reads a sign posted at her work, and her internal dialog caught me off guard!)
Suzanne read this before I did, and in her words… “Sadie is the female Peter – you’ll love her!” (I know exactly who Suzanne means, but in case you’re new here… Peter is my favorite literary serial killer – Peter Jenkins, from Matt Shaw‘s HAPPY EVER AFTER series.)
She’ll kill ’em, or fuck ’em… depends on her mood, (she is equally creative in both activities). If she’s feeling especially froggy – she’ll do BOTH!
The book includes recipes that sound delicious, and I’m going to sneak a few in to my secret recipe box – including Sadie’s Cooking Tips! (You should be productive while waiting for the dish to cook. You could vacuum. Or, masturbate.)
If you honestly enjoy the same books that I do, then Sadie the Sadist is one that you cannot miss. I was sad when I finished, but I learned that there is a Sadie prequel in the works, and Zané is writing novel of psychological suspense called Jayne Just Watches. Jayne believes that she is dead, and she happens to be Sadie’s neighbor.
Yay!!
One more thing… don’t miss the author’s blog! There is too much awesome to tell you about, so just follow the links below to check it all out for yourself! I got my stalking ahem – fangirling in earlier – Facebook, Google+, Twitter, Goodreads, AuthorGraph… you can connect via ZaneSachs.com.

Perhaps, one day soon, the perfect novel will be written by artificial intelligence. Until then, Zané offers you her flawed perspective and hopes you find it entertaining.
