Welcome to my first official blog (or, how I like to say, BLAWG) for Halloween Forevermore! We are barely a day old as I write this, and already the reception has been incredible! Our posts have had hundreds of shares and submissions for HFM are pouring in. I would like to thank Joe R. Lansdale, the Tales of Poe cast and crew, the Circus of the Dead cast and crew and our wonderful flash fiction authors- John Palisano, Mercedes M. Yardley and DS Ullery- for helping us start off with a bang! I would also like to thank our contributors for their hard work. This would not be happening without them! We are still sorting things out- the mobile view of our site is a little wonky and some sections are still due- but anyone familiar with the process of running a website knows that it is an ongoing work-in-progress.

I am very happy to feature an interview with one of the biggest names in the horror fiction genre, Joe R. Lansdale! Expect more great interviews in the months to come! I am also very happy that HFM is a pro-rate market for horror fiction! I hope, with success, we can expand our paying opportunities for contributors. Which reminds me: to pay the bills, we are offering a very cool line of Halloween Wax Warmers. The company backing us is counting on HFM to move these products and other upcoming Halloween/horror merchandise. The success of this site depends on our ability to sell the merchandise offered on this site. If you want to help us become a thriving Halloween/horror site and a venue for authors and filmmakers, then please share us anywhere and everywhere you can. Like us on Facebook. Follow us on Twitter.  These things help immensely. And, hey, if you are in the market for a Halloween wax warmer or know someone who is, you know where to get them!

So I need to get back at it now. Lots of dark work ahead of me…
