The season of fear is almost upon us.
No, not tax time. Halloween. All Hallows Eve.
Already the stores are start into stock themed candy, costumes, and pumpkin spice flavored everything. (Not my thing, but hey…get those lattes while you can.)
This is also the time of year that dark fiction artists love. Especially writers and authors. It gives our dark creations a perfect stage on which to shine.
It also means parties. Like the Blood Moon Rising Party that is happening all October long on Facebook.
“Join us on Blood Moon Rising 2 – for fans of horror, fantasy and sci-fi, this is the place to be Oct 1st on Facebook.”
Blood Moon Rising 2—the first was in May—is an event where thirty dark fiction authors will be chatting about their latest projects. There will be giveaways, free stories to read, and good old-fashioned shenanigans. And who doesn’t love that?
Each author will have one day to take over the event and post about their books and why they love this time of year. (My day is October 30.) Stop by each day for games, prizes, excerpts… whatever these authors’ mysterious minds can create. Everyone is welcome to join, comment, and participate in the festivities.
Here’s the Facebook link for Blood Moon Rising. Click it and join thirty authors of speculative fiction—horror, fantasy, and sci-fi—for a scary good time. Even if you can’t stop by each day, click the Thunderclap link and support the event on Facebook, Twitter, or Tumblr.
See you in October!
