So what’s up?
We started a couple new features, the first being periodic drawings for horror stuff. To kick it off, we are helping to promote Jeff Freeman’s Island of the Cannibal Death Gods fundraiser. From the movie’s website, “Starting Monday, March 12th and going thru Saturday March 17th… All profits from the sale of “Island of the Cannibal Death Gods” through Distrify, will be donated equally to “Scares That Care” and the “Animal Rescue Mission.” Just click one of the links above to download or rent and please share with your friends to help raise money for these two great causes.” We are giving away 3 copies of the film. Off in the right column you’ll find how to enter. You get one chance to win for each entry, so follow us and get those links to cool horror stuff added for Friday’s horror hop.
Our second new feature, “the Minor Insanity Horror Hop, is a new weekly link sharing event every Thursday and Friday to the dark side of media. Share as many links as you like to Twitter accounts, facebook pages, websites, blog posts, book deals, movie reviews, free games, etc. Enter as many links as you like. Enter the same social media accounts weekly as well. Then visit the links and support the contributors by following, liking, commenting, downloading, etc.” It’s open to everyone so I hope you’ll join us.
In the Vamplit Blog it’s Read an eBook Week all month long. This month Vamplit is giving away Vamplit merchandise and ebooks in drawings and competitions as part of their commitment to ebooks. Go to the blog for more details.
Don’t forget that Tim’s book is featured as one of this month’s reads in The Dark Book Club on Dark Media City. I got my copy last week and started reading it over the weekend. Tim’s writing is fabulous and I’m his biggest fan, so I hope you’ll join us.
Got my World Book Night book selection and pick up location. I’m giving away Wintergirls, which was my third giveaway choice and I haven’t read it yet but did pick up a copy. The event is April 23rd and have plenty of time to read it before venturing out to give it away. I’ll also post a review here before then. Actually glad I didn’t get my first choice, which was Hunger Games. Sorry to say the book was okay, but I have no interest in reading any of the other books in the series or even seeing the movie after reading it.

I may volunteer for the Run for Your Lives 5K obstacle course zombie race. I heard about it last year, but don’t remember it being in Denver. Who knows, maybe it was different event. Still it looks like loads of fun but I’m not sure if I want to run or do something else.
This week’s #horrorchat on Twitter and Dark Media City is about H.P. Lovecraft and we’re still writing readers choice for #fridayflash.
HAVE A GREAT WEEK!!
