All Saint’s Day

All Saint’s Day is a time to honor those who are righteous…that would be my 13 Days of Horror writers and all who supported this event with blog posts, comments to the writers, and word of mouth. My deepest thanks to all of you.

All play and no work, right?

THANK YOU: Michael J. Solender, John Donald Carlucci, Paul Phillips, Lee Hughes, Jeffrey S. Callico, Laurita Miller, Barry J. Northern, Kate Pilarcik, Paul D. Brazill, Angel Zapata, MJS, John Wiswell, and Jodi MacArthur for your excellent stories, flash fictions, and poetry.

The Horrors of Halloween are listed under the 13 Days of Horror page for those who missed a chance to read them.


November 1st also marks the first day in the National November Writing Month Challenge. Unfortunately I will not be able to participate this year, but since I’d already collected material for it, I wanted to share it with those of you still participating. My best of luck to you!

  1. Erin, you are a true writer's writer! This was a haunting, sleep interrupting collection and I thank you for such an assembly of talent. Bravo!


  2. I so appreciate the time and effort you put into creating such a haunting event (especially with family illness and such). I can't thank you enough, Erin. LOVED your Stephen King quote. I feel the same way every time I sit down to write. The moment right before the gush of voices hit.Hugs to you and yours!


  3. Thanks, Erin. You've gotta do this next year! Thanks for the Friday Fables link on your sidebar as well. Great pumpkin too, and thanks for the writer's quotes. Hemingway, Asimov, and King. Nice.


  4. Thanks for hosting this, Erin. I'm still catching up, as usual. My favourite quote, from Gene Fowler: “Writing is easy: All you do is sit staring at a blank sheet of paper until drops of blood form on your forehead.”
