I created this blog back in early '09 because I kept reading about how aspiring authors should have some kind of online identity. Thank Writer's Digest for being the most persistent voice echoing that advice. So, with hardly any clue at how to go about it, I created a Blogger account and started posting my thoughts on writing and books in general. After a few months, I started to get the idea to focus in a little more with how I blogged. Nowadays, the blog is dedicated mostly to dark fiction. I blog about genres besides horror and fantasy, but those two are where much of the focus lies.
I keep most of the content on this blog categorized for easier navigation. Here's what you can expect from each category:
Book Giveaways: I don't host giveaways too often, but when I do they can be found here. I will even provide links to other book giveaways on the blogosphere from time to time.
Book Vs. Movie: As readers, we'll often argue that the book was better than the movie. That's not always the case, though. I'll weigh the pros and cons of both the book and movie and then declare which I preferred.
Fave Five Lists: Who doesn't do a top five list at least once a year? My lists show up much more frequently than that.
Getting Graphic: Over the last couple of years, I've gotten into reading graphic novels, thanks mainly to the fact that I have access to them through my local library. So, I figured I may as well write comic book reviews too.
Killer Kitsch: "Kitsch" is a term of used to describe art and collectibles of an odd or even tacky nature. Once in a while I will highlight an item I've stumbled across online that strikes me as especially kitschy.
Meme, Myself, & I: Memes are all over the place. I don't participate in them a lot, but when I do I place them here.
On My Radar: If there is a book, movie, or something else that catches my eye, but has yet to be released, I'll discuss it here. Movies, books, TV shows, whatever.
Rabid Reads: Books reviews. A lot of horror literature, but I read fantasy, science-fiction, humor, westerns, YA, and even some romance.
Rabid Rewind: Movie reviews, specifically DVD releases. Sometimes it is a recent release, sometimes it's a classic, and sometimes a not-so-classic. Like the book reviews, genres vary.
Wish List Wednesday: Like any reader, I've got a wish list for books--and a lengthy list at that. Every Wednesday I highlight one title I am eager to read. New releases, classics from years gone by, or hidden gems that have gone unnoticed or under-appreciated.
Writing Like Crazy: The one spot where I blog about my own fiction. I'll either discuss the progress of my own writing projects or rant about the craft and business in general.
