May Monster Madness 2014


Welcome to May Monster Madness, a sinisterly spooky scheme spawned by author Annie Walls, and nefariously nurtured with the help of her malevolent minions (Ked, of Something Wicked this Way Comes, and me).

For May Monster Madness 2014, I've taken a leaf out of Victor Frankenstein's book and made my own monster. If you would like a chance to win my little monster, all you have to do to enter is suggest a name for her and leave it in the comments.

As always, I will assign a number to each comment in the order that they are left and the winner will be chosen via the RANDOM.ORG Random Number Generator. Please make sure you leave me some way to contact you. This giveaway is open internationally. Entries close on Monday, June 2nd, at 11.00 pm Eastern US time.

A whole bunch of bloody and bloated blogs are participating in this monstrous mayhem and macabre merrymaking. Simply click on the links provided with each post to make your way around to all the other fabulous fiends in this frightening festival.

Bloggy Turns Three!

After a somewhat awful April, I'm now experiencing a bit of a monstrous May. And not the good kind of monstrous, I might add. A chronic health issue, which has recently become worse, has left me feeling very crappy over the last few weeks. On top of that, I've also had some major computer problems, so I haven't been able to get around much to all the usual blogs I love to read. In the wake of these little vexations, this year's blog birthday is a rather quiet affair. (You might like to check out last year's birthday bash at the Addams mansion, here.)

Incidentally, Doug Jones, otherwise know as Billy Butcherson from Hocus Pocus, just so happens to share a birthday with my blog, which I thought seemed rather appropriate. ;)


Amidst all the not-so-fun stuff lately, there have also been some wonderful bright spots, one of which was winning an e-book of Lexa Cain's novel, Soul Cutter, in a giveaway on her blog. If you haven't met lovely Lexa yet, head on over to the Lexa Cain blog.

I will be sharing some other special surprises with you in upcoming posts.

Getting back to the subject of monstrous (the good kind, this time), don't forget May Monster Madness on May 30! You can either sign-up over at the Annie Walls blog or just enjoy the posts of all the fabulous participating bloggers.

I'm so very grateful to everyone who follows this blog and for the wonderful friendships I have made in Blogland!

Happy Birthday, my little bloggy!
