The nights are getting longer, the temperature is dropping, and the air is crisp with dying leaves. That means Halloween is right around the corner, and you can bet I’ve been busy. Between craziness at work and throwing our annual Halloween bash last weekend, I’m afraid I’ve had little time for blogging. To make up for my prolonged departure, I thought I’d bring a few fun horrific, Halloween themed videos that have certainly give me a good laugh.
First we have a music video posted by a friend’s favorite band. It’s gory, it’s over the top, and it’s got a werewolf in it. What’s not to love? Plus the song is quite catchy!
Next up we have a video that you’ll probably be sharing with your friends, a Rob Cantor song performed with an ensemble, a chorus, and amazing dancers. Just don’t be turned away by the title.
Finally here’s a performance test for the creature in Mama, which I’m told is ten times more frightening here than it actually was in the film. I can’t really say since I haven’t seen it, but I don’t recommend watching this in the dark.
On the writing front, I’ve been working on getting a werewolf novella completed. The goal is to have it done by the end of the month so I can focus my time in November on Nanowrimo. I’m going to use it as an excuse to get the second draft of my YA Fantasy novel completed.
Anyway here’s the progress my dystopian YA werewolf novella featuring Mercy, who works with her father to trap werewolves, a mill that relies on cheap werewolf labor, and a crazy inventor with metallic arms. A simple werewolf capture leads to a violent escape, and suddenly the werewolves in the forest are the least of Mercy’s worries.
