Halloween Love

Something More

A Few Wise Words from Horror Authors

It’s 2020. The theme of this year among my friends and the world at large is “New Year, New You.” I have to say I like that idea a lot. A fresh start. A letting go of old negative beliefs and past hurts. I mean, why not give yourself a fresh slate? You’re alive one

Who’s Afraid of the Jersey Devil?

Imagine being a 10-year-old elementary school child and learning with your classmates about the misshapen monster roaming the woods of New Jersey from your teacher.

It’s been a decade now since I first started Halloween Love. In all that time, the project never went Big Timeβ„’ (though I always try and offer people big time fun) or made a single penny of profit. Thankfully, passion was always the primary goal, and the idea of profit barely an afterthought, otherwise I
