  1. I love the theme of your blog because I love classic literature, history and fairy tales.
    I’m a movie blogger and I will be posting a blog about the films of Tim Burton, whose films have dark fairy tale themes similar to your blog.

    • Candy

      Thanks! Always fun to meet fellow fans of the classics. Like you, I enjoy Tim Burton. He has a unique perspective and his visuals are off-the-chart fantastic.

  2. I feel your writing is charmingly confident and your take-off(s) on the classics (are) wonderful. Your narrator’s innocence works well against the dread dealt in.

    • Candy

      Thanks. I hope you’ll enjoy the new one — Bram Stoker’s Summer Sublet. It should be on Amazon by the first week of July.

  3. Hi Candy – you rock! Your interest in history must surely make for some extremely interesting tales. I know of a couple of graveyards up here in New England, hidden away deep in the woods, that hold the bones of Revolutionary War soldiers. Even though I don’t write horror myself, I couldn’t help thinking ‘what if’ whenever I’d pass by them…

    • Candy

      I LOVE those old graveyards. There are a few amazing ones in New York, but I have a fond — and slightly creepy — memory of a friend taking a bunch of us on a hike through the New England woods to a Revolutionary War era graveyard near his parent’s summer house. I think he wanted to ‘scare’ the girls but….

      Anyway, I hope you’ll “FOLLOW” this blog and support my efforts to promote the next MONSTER. It’s about a woman at a crossroads in her life. When things don’t work out as planned she has a month to rethink her life. She thinks and thinks and thinks and eventually comes to the conclusion that the man next door is a vampire. It’s my comedy monster!

  4. You’ve got yourself a nice little franchise that I think will do well. And I am not a fan of the horror genre. But I like the way you write, and this can turn out to be a profitable series. Much luck!

    • Candy

      I certainly hope you are right! The Mary Shelley Game is more suspense than straight out horror and the next MONSTER — Bram Stoker’s Summer Sublet is a comedy. It’s coming out in a week or two. The third is closest to horror, in the classic sense, with terrible things happening but not a bloody mess up front. It’s inspired by POE so it’s got his sensibility.

      Anyway, glad you enjoy my blog and I hope you’ll give my not-exactly-horror ebooks a try!

  5. Thanks for the review, sounds like fun.
    Trouble is, that style of camp can often devolve into the Trivial. On any level, you have to make people invest in the characters -otherwise it’s just a puddle of fake blood smeared on your shirtfront. Check out The Betrayal of Nora Blake @ meyerwire.wordpress.com. And keep writing.
