A Simple Thank You
Hello and happy almost Halloween season, Hellions! As I’ve been gathering all of the things to fill up my Horrortober, I wanted to pause for a moment and thank you all for everything you’ve done for me.
The process of writing is a lonely endeavor. You miss out on time spent with family and friends, hoping the words you’re putting down will entertain basic strangers out there in the insane world.
Over the past decade plus, so many of you have stepped out of the shadows of stranger and become friends, colleagues and supporters that are invaluable to me. I truly love horror, and am proud to share that love with all of you. In the end, we’re all just fans, jawing about the things that give us chills and make us sleep with the lights on.
So, thank you to everyone who has ever purchased one of my books, dropped a rating, left a review, connected with me on social media, promoted my work on said social media, watched or listened to my podcasts (Monster Men and Final Guys), appeared on my podcasts, signed up for Patreon, read my Video Visions column at Cemetery Dance, shared your ghost stories, made me aware of awesome new movies or UFO documentaries, alerted me to the latest cryptid news, came to a book signing or appearance at a convention or brewery, lent me a hand with things like marketing and design, gave me encouraging words to keep me going, and overall, just made me feel welcome. I know there can be a lot of drama in this genre, and I thank you for sticking with me in keeping that horse crap in the basement where it belongs.
Every single one of you is special to me, and I appreciate this community we’ve built. The future is known to no one, but I will always know that I have rock star Hellions in my life. We have a month and a half to go hog wild with this thing we love. I’m looking forward to sharing it all with you, like we do every year.
Stay scary, keep looking to the skies, and call me if you see a Bigfoot!
Thank you for writing!you were one of the writers to help get me through covid.I cannot thank you enough. Kurt b.
I’m so glad my madness could do that for you. Writing while locked up in the house kept me sane.
Your Welcome. Thank you for everything.
You are the best, Emily!
I appreciate you accepting this old redneck into your wonderful world of monsters. I really appreciate the signed books and the movie watch parties are always a blast 🙏
You are my southern brother from another mother!
Cue the tears!!

Thank you so much for everything over the years especially!
Thank you for sharing your brilliant mind with us!
I don’t think I’ve ever heard my mind connected with the word brilliant before. LOL Sick and twisted, maybe. 🙂
No thank you hunter you have brought a lot of joy and great fun and entertainment in this crappy world right now really enjoy your books and podcasts
It’s all about having fun!
Keep on keepin’ on Hunter! When’s the next release?
You son of a…The re-release of Evil Eternal should be soon, then Clash of the Cryptids next year.
Aw, what a sweet post! And thank YOU for all that you do for our genre!
Thanks Priscilla. I love this genre and will keep the horror flag flying until I’m on the other side of the dirt.
Party on, Monster Man! Much love, always! ❤
You are the queen!!!! We need to hang out this spooky season.
Absolutely! We’ll put on Sponge Bob or the Lifetime Network and riff a horror tale to the whole watch. It’ll get weird, good times will be had, you’ll be less sane than when it started – guaranteed! Share some of that love with the ladies! ❤
I love it! I’ll bring the adult beverages.
