For my part I’ll be posting some short drabbles, flash fiction and poetry on Facebook, but I’ll also have a story, Miss Lonely Hearts, posting here tomorrow. As well, I’ll be giving away my novella, Gothic Cavalcade, for free during the event.

So, come party with the writers as they celebrate the rejected lovers, the spurned spouses, and the generally lovelorn. It is a festival of everything anti-valentine and down with romance.

Horror Haikuesday: Darkness

Horror, Art and Poetry, such a delightful combination…

Reblogged from Horror Made.

Welcome my wonderful horror fiends and happy horror haikuesday! Today we have a delightful assortment of devilish word-smithing to peruse. So let’s hop on in.

First up, is a poem from our Horror Made resident poet, Patrick Rahall:

Darkness

I scratch, desperate.

My fingers bleed, my nails break.

My coffin is dark.

And out of the numerous, delightful and fantastic #horrorhaikuesday submissions here are this week’s two  illustrations.

The first is from Michelle Parker:

Next up, I saw that Andy Van Scoyoc and Nano Horror spun some striking images off of each other’s poems, so I wanted to do an illustration that played along that vein. (Very fun work guys!)

It’s official!

The countdown to the Bloody Valentine Horror Event has begun!

For those not in the know, this is my annual anti-valentine event for horror writers, and all those looking to get away from the sappy mush of romance on February 14th. This year we’ve changed from a blog hop to a Facebook event, but we will still bring the “bad love” to eager readers.

Here’s how it works:

Welcome to the Bloody Valentine Horror Event

This event, happening on February 14th, is a showcase for the bad side of love:  the rejected lovers, the spurned spouses, and the generally lovelorn. It is a celebration of everything anti-valentine and down with romance.

Here’s how to participate:

Join the event.

Invite people (optional, but appreciated).

Then on February 14th post something that fits our “Bad Love” theme.

It can be a poem, a drabble, flash fiction, an excerpt, a tale of a broken heart, a historic tidbit of love gone wrong, a video, photos, just about anything as long as it fits the theme. In other words—No Mushy Stuff.  You may also post links to blog posts or stories posted elsewhere if, again, they fit the theme. It also doesn’t have to be dark and scary, a bit of black humour works as well. You may also include book links or your website links in your posts.

So come join the fun on February 14th, and dispense with the sappy romance. Embrace heartbreak, love gone wrong, romantic mayhem and tragedy, hopefully with that little splash of humour and blood. It’s time to discover the Bad Side of Love.

Although this is an open event, in addition we will have special guests popping in with some darkly delightful Valentine goodies. There will also be free books be offered up as well.

Featured authors scheduled to appear are:

Clarissa Johal

Ash Krafton

Nick Paschall

Miracle Austin

John Linwood Grant

Debbie Christiana

Steve Vernon

Cinsearae S.

And of course your host (that’s me), A. F. Stewart
