Minions of Misery

I have the honour of being selected as a Minion of Misery by April Denton. As such I have to oblige the darkness by writing about: a dark book, a dark film, and a dark secret. This is going to be fun for me!

Dark Book

This is one of the most disturbing collection of short stories and prose that I have ever read. This book is dark but dark in the way that gets into your mind and sticks with you. It was a brutal read but one that I think should be read. It does not disappoint in its horrific tales but the messages will leave you psychologically numb for a while after. It’s currently up for sale at Smashwords and on Amazon. Buy yourself a copy and see what I mean. If I were you I would actually avoid this book.

Dark Movie

This is one of my favourite movies. It’s a dark, psychological thriller about one of my favourite topics: Zombies.  Scary. Suspenseful. Thought provoking. An indie film that definitely delivers more of a punch than most of what Hollywood passes off to us as groundbreaking cinema.

Dark Secret

Hmmm, a dark secret… This is such a hard thing to admit because once it’s out there, you can’t take it back!

I am an intensely shy person when it comes to a lot of things. I’m play at having self-confidence but in all honesty, it’s an act! And apparently one that I deserve an Oscar for…

My family and close friends have no idea that I write a fictional blog. I have no shared my aspirations of being an author with anyone besides those people who I connect with on Twitter and through my Facebook Fan Page. I treasure these connections because it gives me the permission to be the person that I know that I am. It’s hard to live a double life sometimes. No one understands that desire to write and create a world outside of your own, except for other writers.

And now that it’s out there, I may decide that it’s time to reintroduce myself to those people who are a part of my life. I don’t really know why I’ve been so afraid to share  but I think it has to do with rejection. I get awesome comments about my writing from the people who I’ve met and my FB Fan Page gets comments when I post a day in my (fictional) Zombpocalypse. Some might think I’m crazy but I’m just me…

A private person with a deep fear of rejection. There it’s out there. And I can never take it back.

So now I need to nominate some people… Whom to choose, whom to choose??

I’ve got it! I hereby nominate James Friesen, Johanna K.P., and John C (@Slowdeath77) of Horror Smorgasbord.
