Not Now… Mommy’s Reading has become Not Now, Mommy’s Screaming!

THIS MONTH, TO CELEBRATE HALLOWEEN, I am serving as the “Horror Host” for the Not Now…Mommy’s Reading book review site! And I’ve lined up a whole calendar of events, fiction and prizes you don’t want to miss!

Blu, who runs the site, asked me a few weeks ago if I’d host a “horror takeover” of the blog this month to celebrate Halloween. So I put the word out and a month’s worth of amazing authors answered. And Blu temporarily redesigned and retitled the Romance and Horror review blog as “Not Now…Mommy’s Screaming” for October. We’re having a lot of fun with this one.

Every day in October on the blog, you will find a free short story or interesting blog or interview…. and every day you’ll find a contest for e-books, audio books and more. And those contests are ALL open until Oct. 31… so if you missed this week — go back and read all the posts and enter all the contests! Get your horror on!

I kicked things off last Saturday with an intro and a brand new short story written just for this event, “Running Away From A Good Time.” You can read it here:
At the end of the story, there’s a contest to win a free ebook or audiobook of my novelette Failure.

Today’s post on the site is a short story called “Flies” from Glenn Rolfe. In between… have been a week’s worth of posts — a cool blog on the horrors of 15 vs. 55 by Maynard Sims, a short story called “The Hallowed Shortcut” from Ryan C. Thomas, a blog about “The Resurrected” from NY Times Bestseller Megan Hart, a cool post about the horror of hotels from Su Halfwerk, a blog about “The Road to Salvations” series by Pembroke Sinclair and a chiller dark magic story from Russell R. James called “The Chosen One.”

Coming up? Three more weeks of daily posts from some of the best horror writers in the genre today! There are round-table interviews with Women in Horror and Werewolf Novel authors, and lots more individual blogs and free fiction.

So stop by every day this month and read, enter contests, and chat on the comments if you like with the authors. Start today by looking at everything posted this week!
