Hardly any Horror Movies this month!

I disappointingly have noticed that this month, the spookiest month all year long, has a terrible shortage of Horror movies both in the movie theaters and on specialty channels, such as Netflix. What the reasons are for the shortage is truly beyond me, in truth the whole situation is just as much an annoyance as it is a disappointment. For Horror fanatics like myself, this is the one time of the year we look forward to simply for a new crock of scary material to experience. When our options are either regurgitated films or themes that have absolutely nothing to do with horror at all, words cannot express the disenfranchisement we can definitely feel. Don't get me wrong, most of the older horror films are my favorites yet this year the holiday of Halloween seems to be completely ignored. I guess such a situation gives credit to the age old saying "If you want something done right, you have to do it yourself!"

Happy Halloween, Once Again!

I so very eagerly welcome the coming of the month of October. Honestly, it's probably my favorite month all year long, and with it comes what I consider a marathon of Horror movies, Occult documentaries, Venturing out to strange graveyards, and everything in between until the ultimate climax comes with the onset of Halloween! I can sincerely say that no other month has such an aura of magic nor the propensity of fun within it, it's not even close! And though I've probably stated this several times, the witchy traditions of Halloween are what I generally pay attention to. Oh how would I love to have this day be everyday, once and for all!!

"The Goblin Tale" Finally Complete!

After nearly a whole year of working and writing, I have the pleasure of acknowledging that the first story of my Dark Fantasy series "A Goblins Tale" is now complete. As with each story I have ever written, this one was, yet again, a testament of will. I don't know how many times some trivial event got in the way of my progress or how many times I considered changing the theme of my work. Yet, for all faults and purposes, passion always prevailed and I would always find myself alone at my writing desk with nothing but the images provided to me by the other side for guidance.Even though this particular chapter of the series is over, I remind myself daily that there is at least two more novels worth of material that still needs to be written and the truth is, I really don't know how long such an endeavor will take. Does it even matter?
When all is said and done, I can honestly say that I am overall pleased with the direction the story took. As with every one of my others, it clasped its own destiny and I felt like I was simply holding my pen to paper as the driving force behind my stories possessed its own narrative. An extension of my stories 'The Chalice' And 'To the Victor the Spoils', to say that I am excited of what the second chapter holds of this deranged yet fantastical tale is a definite understatement!
