Re: Weekly World News Writer's Werewolf Forum

So it turns out I write chic-lit. I offered a free copy of my book Hour of the Beast http://freedomshammer.com in a Good Reads giveaway contest and 597 people competed to get it. And surprisingly, 95 percent were women. Now when I came up with the book cover concept, my marching orders to the artist were: make it so no heterosexual male horror fan 18 to 26 who passed by could resist picking up a copy for a look. Thus the nearly naked girl in the arms of the werewolf. But apparently, the image of a woman being carried off by a werewolf with God knows what on his mind is FAR more intriguing to females than males!

Re: Weekly World News Writer's Werewolf Forum

Had an awesome time at New York Comic Con. Met dozens of incredible artists, sat in a panel on horror in graphic novels, with the creators of Silent Hill, Kill Shakespeare and others, and bought a slew of cool books. My werewolf novel Hour of the Beast (http://freedomshammer.com) sold like hot cakes. It helped that my best friend from Middle School brought a team of buddies to man the booth when I was taking a break. They were mostly extroverted actors and ended selling more books than I did.

Re: Weekly World News Writer's Werewolf Forum

Well I've been invited to be on an author panel at Undead Con, an event hosted by the Anne Rice Vampire Lestat Fan Club over Halloween weekend in New Orleans. A highlight of the festivities is the annual  Theater of the Vampires Ball, featuring a woman being sacrficed to "real" vampires, like in Interview with a Vampire. Does it make me crazy that it flashed through my mind to tuck a crucifix in my back pocket "just in case"?

Re: Weekly World News Writer's Werewolf Forum

The Undead Con in New Orleans was awesome! I was on a panel with some interesting authors, including Kelley Armstrong, the writer of "Bitten" and many other works. People had loads of challenging questions about my novel "Hour of the Beast." http://freedomshammer.com Really had to think on my feet. Met a bunch of really nice writers, including screenwriter Brad Keene of "Cemetary Dancers" fame, and his lovely wife, paranormal writer V.M.K. Fewings, a gorgeous Brit. Vampire Film Festival included some neat shorts, especially The Familiar, about a young man who becomes a Renfield to a vampire -- who turns out to be a hilariously obnoxious jerk. The highlight was, of course, the Theatre of the Vampires Ball. Wonderful entertainment, including performance by the Changlings and a burlesque show. Took some cool pictures, all the while thinking, "If these folks don't show up in my camera, I am so screwed."

Re: Weekly World News Writer's Werewolf Forum

Finally saw "Season of the Witch" over the weekend. Not exactly strong on logic or all that scary after the openng scene, but fun medieval paranormal action  in Army of Darkness kind of way.
And who can badmouth a movie where Nicolas Cage battles an army of plague-infested zombie monks?

My weekly blog features a cool poll" WHO IS THE SEXIEST MALE SCREEN VAMPIRE OF ALL TIME?" http://freedomshammer.wordpress.com View pics of the stable of bloodsuckers, then vote on which undead dude is truly Satan's gift to womankind.

Cool. Do you have any pictures from Undead Con? This is the first time I'm hearing of this con, sounds cool. This isn't the same as the Vampire Festival perchance or the Ann Rice Ball?

Re: Weekly World News Writer's Werewolf Forum

Hello writer! The original werewolf paw broke. So I'm going to try again making one from latex. Hopefully the detail will be added as soon as possible. I have an idea thta it'll come out great. Because I'm going to make it out of latex hair and wool for the inside. I'll also add the paw's detail of nails and also stiches to make it look like a sceintist worked on it.

Re: Weekly World News Writer's Werewolf Forum

Good to hear from you Dira, thanks for the update. Kidwerewolf, the Undead Con is a fledgling convention, very small. But the intimacy was good in that it gave me a chance to spend time with individual writers. I'll have to dig for some pix. There is so much vampire activity in New Orleans, thanks to Interview with the Vampire, that there's a lot of other events going on. Vampire Festival sounds like something else. The Anne Rice Ball was not a name used for the ball I attended, but it was organized by the Anne Rice Vampire Lestat Fan Club. By the way, everyone check out my latest blog entry: "After Night of Drunken Sex, Coeds Charge EACH OTHER with rape!" http://freedomshammer.wordpress.com

Re: Weekly World News Writer's Werewolf Forum

In today's blog I review a DVD release, "Naked Fear." The serial killer movie is basically The Most Dangerous Game with full frontal nudity, as a big game hunter kidnaps strippers, releases them naked in the wild and stalks them like animls. http://freedomshammer.com

Had a lot of fun researching my latest blog post, featuring the hottest female vampires ever to appear on screen. Before I was done I had found 36 candidates. Salma Hayek still gets my vote, but check out the pix and vote in the SEXIEST FEMALE VAMPIRE POLL. http://freedomshammer.wordpress.com

Re: Weekly World News Writer's Werewolf Forum

"Gladiators Vs. Werewolves." Found about this upcoming British movie and the synopsis sounds great. Gladiators are forced to fight werewolves in the Roman arena -- kind of Dog Soldiers meets Gladiator. Wrote an article about it for my blog http://freedomshammer.wordpress.com. The poster is so cool you want to give it an imperial thumbs up before you even see it!

At the Mad Monster Party horror convention in Charlotte, NC, I saw a way cool independent horror movie that put most Hollywood fare to shame. "Nailbiter" is about a shapeshifter that changes whenever a tornado hits. My review is at http://freedomshammer.wordpress.com

Re: Weekly World News Writer's Werewolf Forum

Hello Werewolfwriter. I have your wish paw to attract people, but problem is when I asked the postal office, they told me that it costs R300=$30 to send bulk. So problem is payment... sad so I'll stop making it, the possibility of having to pay that much is unfair to both of us. So I'll tell you Its most possibly better to buy one from the NET.
