I participated in IndieHorror.Org's Cannibal Cookoff. It was really fun for me, because I got to be a little more horrific than normal. There is a big difference in the amount of gore you can fetishisize in a romance or a horror.
"Rite of the Sanguine" was still about vampires in love, of course. They were just a lot more twisted and vile. It's fun to really let loose with my darker stories. In fact, you might see a few more dark and really gruesome tales from me.
There are some really great entries in the contest. The Venus Club has to be one of my favorites. There's just something so empowering and free about the women. Quite wicked.
So, take the time to register and visit IndieHorror. Cast votes for your favorite stories. And it won't hurt my feelings if mine isn't one of them o,.,o
