Novel Prep: Of Monsters, Madness and Mindscapes

So a full week of daily blog posts is now done, and the Preparing for Scaring series has come to a close. I hope you've enjoyed reading these short, daily posts in the strange and suspenseful. And if you missed them, then feel free to take a moment to page back and check each one out.

In case you're new to the blog, my next project is going to be a Horror novel, though which subgenre of Horror I'm as-of-yet not totally certain. I, personally, am a fan of a very particular kind of horror, or kinds. But are my readers? If I write this book, will it sell? Or will it, much like Cybersaurus and Astral Tides, just be a story I, once again, write because I want to write it, and not because it's what I think will appeal to the public?

Preparing for Scaring 4: Something's Fishy...

Day Four of the Preparing for Scaring daily blog series is upon us! I fear I'm getting a bit formulaic, so my goal going forward is to change things up a bit and still keep them spooky. As always, any input is appreciated!

This one, much like Day Three's Post, had grander schemes than could be realized inside of 15 minutes, so your brain is left to wonder about where exactly I was going! MUAHAHAHAH! Anyways, enjoy!
