So, we are a mere 9 days away from every Horror fan’s favorite holiday. And if you think we are going to simply roll up the sidewalks and disappear until next Fall, think again! I have some very exciting things planned for the future. Our number of visitors are growing every day. Yes, this site will be a place to go to for a Halloween fix all year long (our fiction will always be a mix of Halloween-centric terror with the non-holiday scares). But horror coverage will continue, no matter the date.
I also need to remind you that this site exists mainly because of our line of wax warmers, and the amount I am able to move for my bosses will greatly impact the opportunities I will be able to offer contributors as this site continues. Rome wasn’t built in a day. I am aware of that and so are the powers that be. But, at the risk of sounding like a PBS break-in, our future relies on our ability to sell merchandise. And, honestly, the warmers are great products and they have been discounted to $19.95 until Halloween. They are very well-made and the designs are awesome! Buy one before the 31st, send in a picture of it decorating your house by November 15th, and if I get enough submissions, I will choose my favorite and give the lucky pick something very, very cool.
And, soon, you will notice more great merchandise available on the website. I will not complain about the amount of shares we have been getting, because you folks have been wonderful in spreading the word. Our stats have exploded since we launched.
Another quick note: I have received an overwhelming amount of fiction submissions. I promise, I will get to you if I have not already. This is my busy time of year, as you can imagine.
And I absolutely cannot end this before thanking my contributors again. They are a seriously loyal and committed bunch, and I would have nothing without them.
Oh, and I also want to mention something here that happened recently and made me very happy:
A full set of Halloween Forevermore wax warmers was bid up to $400 in the Make a Wish Foundation “Evening of Wishes” gala charity auction event on 10-17-14. It benefited Make-A-Wish Orange County and Inland Empire:
Now, this sends me over the moon, folks. To be able to do what I love for a job is one thing, but to benefit a great organization that helps children… it gives me a wonderful feeling inside.
Anyway, enough of my yacking! We will speak again. Soon!
