What Horror Would You Like to Read?

Okay horror fans, I have decisions to make. I already have several new books on the horizon, but I'd like to know what YOU want to read as a fan? Do you want possessed chimpmunks, demonic dwarfs, ghosts trapped in the wood grain lines of paneling that come out to get you like in Long, Cold Winter, or what? I want to know what my newfound friends and fans would like to see. Hey, maybe I'll feed off of an idea and use you in the book as one of the victims, mwahahaha! Anyway, not trying to steal anyone's ideas, so just send general ideas my way, like lost in the woods, voodoo doll comes to life, etc. If I like it, I may build on it ;)

Well, it's back to woik before my fingers fall asleep.

Who "Squirms" Over Worms?

Ah, I just had a flashback. I remember my grandmother had these old B&W films that ran on a projector. They were B-rated movies without sound, or I think they were without sound. So long ago, I cannot remember. Anyways, I LOVED this move called Squirm, about a town being overrun by earthworms. My favorite scene was when the girl was getting ready for a bath, she turns on the water and tons of worms start flowing out of the faucet and overflowing the tub. I think I remember worms crawling out of some guy's eyes. However, I cannot remember how they stopped those little slimy creatures. Ya know, I think that memory might be where I got the idea to turn T-Sul's flight attendant love slave into a giant maggot in Flight 666. Just goes to show how repressed memories can affect your writing.

Beyond the Twilight Zone

Heads up, I just finished the third TV Book story for a series I'll be releasing based on the Moment of Death trilogy. It's like if the Twilight Zone existed in the world of Event Horizon. Some pretty sick and twisted tales, even freakier than Flight 666. Hmmmm, now I'm thinkin' about Netflix again ;) Guess I'll add Twilight Zone to my instant queue and watch it next. Just watched Devil's Playground with Cuba Gooding, Jr. Now, some may balk and say the movie was goofy, but it was right up my alley.

I might also revisit Hitchcock, because everytime I watch watch of the Master's films it sets my brain on fire. Can't decide which is my absolute favorite though. I'm crazy about North by Northwest, but Rear Window, Rebecca, Vertigo, Psycho, and so many others are just as riveting as the next. Guess I'll have to don a blindfold and grab one at random. I do like the occasional surprise after all.

Have a good scare all.

What's the Best Horror on Netflix?

Anyone have any suggestions for horror movies on Netflix? I luv me some Netflix, people, but it does urk me to see how few horror fests they feature in their collection. There truly is a lot of dreck to sift through for sure. Luckily, I am into Hellraiser right now and have eight movies in the series in my instant queue (good thing 711 Press encourages this. What a cool publisher). But most of the time, I can only watch a few of the movies in a series.

Anyways, I am looking to find things to warp my already twisted brain further. I'm looking for movies that will inspire my creative juices. As a side note, Roger Vallon said to me one day, "Dru, how does such a tiny little thing like you come up with those sadistic tales?" I told him I was probably dropped on my head as a child (which probably isn't far from the truth considering the horde of roughhousing boys I grew up around).

So, help this tiny girl out. Tell me what Netflix flicks keeps you from sleeping at night ;)

I Had Another Nightmare...

And it was wonderful. I died in it of course; most times, I do. But it always makes for a wonderful story. In fact, I don't think I ever mentioned that Long, Cold Winter came out of a nightmare I had while staying at a lodge somewhere in the eastern United States. I will not, however, reveal which lodge, but I will say I just heard that a Hollywood film company is making a B-film at the very same lodge this year. Urrrggg, Long, Cold Winter should've been turned into a film. If so, I would've revealed the location, ;)

Anyways, my latest nightmare isn't a new nightmare at all, as I've already been loosely taking notes for a similar book. It seems my nightmares like to influence one another. Let's just say some childhood friends come back to haunt you. I need not say more because this book is about three away from making it to press and I don't want another author stealing my morbid ideas. Though I've been told my ideas so far are so sick and twisted that another author wouldn't approach a horror story like I do anyways. To be fair, I've also been accused of being tongue-in-cheek, and every once in awhile, predicatable but appaling. Aren't we all? This comment made me think about my fans. It seems as a new author, I'm so far utterly loved or totally hated by my readers.... I'll take both, because it tells me I'm doing my job. 

All right friends, time for a nap. Hope it scares me to death.

My Morbid Mind

My publishers have just told me that I'm one sick, twisted individual, lol. I consider that a compliment. They asked me where I come up with these stories, to which I replied, "I dream them, of course." Because of that conversation, I started reflecting on the Moment of Death trilogy and thought about the thrill of writing. I truly enjoyed writing all three books, but I'm not sure which one is my favorite. Feel free to tell me which one is yours.

I am writing because I haven't been blogging much (a fact my publsihers keep reminding me of), so I wanted all my fans to know that their questions about the Moment of Death trilogy will not go unanswered. Many have emailed me wondering about the doctor and what became of the moment of death experiment. I planned to end the series with unanswered questions so that it was open-ended for future books, however after a meeting with 711 Press, we've decided to spin off a TV Book mini-series based on the moment of death experience. How soon will it be published? There is no set date at the moment because I'm busy writing two new Movie Books simultaneously so that I may unleash my fresh nightmares on paper. I will keep you posted week by week :)
