Creepies 2: Things That Go Bump in the Closet

From the masters of horror at Writers, Poets and Deviants:
Prepare for terror…

  • An exterminator meets his match in a family’s attic…
  • A cuddly toy with a disturbing origin is all the rage…
  • A boy’s survival of a deadly accident turns out to be more curse than miracle…
  • A man asks a vampire for a favor and gets more than he wished for…
  • A strange device collects and stores the rage from people bent on revenge…
  • An exquisite chess set in an old pawn shop sets the scene for terror…
  • A young man’s WW2 bayonet carries an evil history…
  • Something is alive in the outhouse…

Enjoy these chilling tales and more in volume 2 of WPaD’s popular Creepies series.
But leave the lights on…

Featuring works from: Mandy White, Nathan Tackett, Marla Todd, Diana Garcia, Jade M Phillips, David Hunter, Michael Haberfelner, Mike Cooley, David W Stone, A K Wallace

What the heck… on poetry and other things.

A Vampire Poem

What the heck,

I’ll bite your neck.

The Werewolf

I watch for the moonrise,

The fire in your canine eyes,

Your transformation and your lies,

Then you eat him and he dies.

I’m been so out of it (as you can tell from the poetry here) that I didn’t realize that April is National Poetry Month. So celebrate and read poetry or write it or listen to somebody else reading it.

My well known thoughts on poetry:

A need you dare not admit. Poetry on a Vampire Mom blog? Why? I’ll tell you.

People won’t admit they read poetry and are moved by it…but late at night they go on the Internet and search it out. It is like pornography. I’m dead serious (no pun intended). It is a need that most people will not dare admit to.

It isn’t a good time for me to expound upon the history of poetry or what caused the American population (among others) claim not to like poets. But I would like to remind everyone, especially those of us who can remember the past several centuries that there was a time that poets were the Rock Stars of our culture.

Sometimes I pull out my old volumes of favorites and read in the quiet of the night or on a rain soaked day. In turn, I also look for the new. I marvel at the many voices I see with poetry on the Internet.

Part of me believes technology with recorded music, radio, TV etc maybe brought an end to the poet as a popular icon. But in turn the Internet, yes the Internet has brought poetry back to life.

I see in the online communities poets being read, not ignored. I don’t read those words online “I don’t like poetry.” I see people who NEVER would read a poem, forwarding poetry to their friends and loved ones.

Poetry is a gift to the soul. Poetry is for everyone. Everyone needs poetry, like a vampire needs blood, like a hawk needs to fly, like a fish needs to swim. I know that wasn’t very poetic but you get the point – I hope.

Your assignment today is to READ, SAVOR and SHARE poetry with someone you love.

 Something that is NOT poetic is MS aka Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system. It is also more common than you think. There are 200K to 3M cases in the Untied States per year.

In honor of our friends and writers who have MS all proceeds of the WPaD Anthologies go to MS research.

Just think, by buying and reading these fantastic poetry and short story anthologies you can help so many. And the books are cheap. I mean really cheap. Like under $5 cheap for the electronic versions.

You’ll thank me for it later because you’ll like these books so much.

Bela: The Art of Jason Kemp

I’m proud to share this wonderful portrait of Bela Lugosi as Dracula by Jason Kemp.

Jason, who also goes by J. Harrison Kemp, works and lives in Toronto, Ontario.  Among his many works, Jason also illustrated the cover art for the WPaD anthology Goin’ Extinct – Tales from the Edge of Oblivion.

Available in paperback and electronic ebook versions on Amazon, Good Reads, Barnes and Noble and other fine online booksellers.

My favorite Bela Lugosi film is not Dracula but The Body Snatcher with Boris Karloff.

Of course my favorite drawing by Jason Kemp is all of his drawings. I hope to feature more of his work in the future. Jason’s writing can be found in all of the WPaD anthologies.
