Your Horror-Paranormal Round-Up for March
Today marks the start of something new for me. Every couple of months, I’m going to post a hodge-podge of places to go and people to see on the internet, all of them horror and paranormal related. These are the locations, people and achievements that have captured my imagination and gratitude. They are wellsprings of inspiration, information, entertainment and mental edification. Find something that interests you and give them a lookey-loo…
Congratulations goes out to Robert Rumery on the publication of his first comic, The Grove, from WhatTheFlux Comics. If you know me, you know I’m a horror comic junkie. Nice job, Robert. I can’t wait to get my grubby little hands on it.
Looking for great horror books at steep discounts…or even free? Author, editor and all around cool dude in a loose mood, Brian James Freeman has started eHorror Bargains, your one-stop-shop for the best in horror. All of your horror deals are right here. Stop by and load up your e-reader!
Book Reviews. I have 2 places where you can go to get tons of book reviews (and if you’re an author, query them to have your book spotlighted). The first is Oh, for the HOOK of a BOOK. Super reviewer Erin covers multiple genres as well as author interviews. She is the hardest working book reviewer out there today and a lot of writerly types owe her our gratitude.
Another mega-review site is Matt Molgaard’s Horror Novel Reviews. Matt and his team do an excellent job of reviewing not only new horror works, but classics and older hidden gems. If you need to stock up your horror library, this is the place to go. Then head to eHorror Bargains and see if you can get some of them without busting your budget.
Bigfoot. You know I can’t help myself from throwing something about the hairy fella in here. Huge thanks to Scott Albright who brought this post to my attention (actually, it’s as large as a novella) about Bigfoot and why no one has found their bones or bodies. Author Robert Lindsay did some yeoman’s work putting this together. Must read for all you squatchers!
Ghosts & The Supernatural. The definitive place to get everything you need about the world of the paranormal is Jeff Belanger’s Ghost Village. This is the Bible for everyone interested in what lies beyond the veil. You can also sign up for their free monthly newsletter.
Books. I’m super excited that my book release partner on April 2nd is the uber-talented Jonathan Janz. His new book, The Darkest Lullaby, comes out the same day as my Sinister Entity. Here’s a link to a review of his book. He has one of the coolest cover in the Samhain library.
Podcasts. My newest podcast addiciotn is Darkness Radio, a radio show broadcast out of the Twin Cities. You can listen to their archives online or through iTunes. These guys have a damn good time talking about the world of the strange and the unexplained. Love their take on things.
OK, that about does it for this month. I hope you stop by some or all of these great places and supoprt them. If there are hot spots you think I should know about, send them to me and I’ll include them in future posts.
Hey, Hunter!! Thank you so much for the mention. That was a nice surprise today! I appreciate it so very much. :))) I work for compliments!! lol And I also appreciate YOUR support of me each day I post a blog, with the comments and sharing. You are amazing. AND an amazing writer!! I really like this new concept….kind of like a newsletter of info within a blog…and very informative. I enjoyed it and it’s very helpful.
There are so many people doing amazing things, it was long overdue that I gave you all a shout. So glad you like it.
This a great idea! I believe there are hours of entertainment and edification here … which is also kind of a bad thing, now that I think about it. Oh well.
True. It’s easy to get wrapped up in all the fun stuff and blow off the things that NEED to get done. 🙂
Thanks for the mention, Hunter! I appreciate it.
It’s a brilliant idea. Happy to promote it any time.
My husband just had a heart attack and other heart related things. He should be coming home from the hospital by the weekend. One night alone at home I turned on a flashlight to get to the bathroom. I said out loud. Maybe he will get another chance. The flashlight blinked-then stayed on. It has not blinked since. All the best, Jackie Kingon
I am so sorry to hear that, Jackie. But I’m glad he’s doing OK now. You’re the perfect couple. You’re both in our prayers. And that’s a nice sign you received. In today’s world, with everything zipping along and so many distractions, it’s easy to miss important signs. Please let him know we’re wishing him the best for a full recovery.
Just hopped over and read the excerpt for THE DARKEST LULLABY! Wow! It already has me hooked AND it shares a birthday with SINISTER ENTITY! 🙂
