#MSWL Finally watched SUPER DARK TIMES! Give me a twisty horror! That was the most unsettling movie I've watched in a long time and I definitely did not see that ending coming...

Happy Birthday, Edward Gorey!

#MSWL A horror novel with lots of reveals inspired by Gorey's work (without the sarcasm)

Alrighty, who has a manuscript that would appeal to fans of TWIN PEAKS? Mystical + creepy in a great setting. Please give it to me. #MSWL

#MSWL Looking for the next SERIES OF UNFORTUNATE EVENTS for adults! Creepy, dark, gothic, and writing that takes risks!
