What Time Is It? Coffin Hop Time!!!!

Good afternoon boys and girls!  It’s that time of year again.  Yes, it is that time when authors all over raise the lids on their coffins and hop from graveyard to graveyard looking for more victims…I mean people like you to share in the glory that is Halloween.  Authors from all over the web come together each year the week before Halloween to have some ghoulish fun.  There are many sites to hop around at and by clicking the Coffin Hop banners (or any place where you see Coffin Hop in bold lettering) you will be transported to the main site where you can visit the tombs and catacombs where the other authors rest in peace.

This year, I’m going to do something different.  With the release of my new collection, Wicked Tales for Wicked People, I’m going to host some guest posts from characters that appear in some of the stories.  Each one will act as a prequel of sorts to the tale they suffer in.

Now, on to the contest for this year…

At the end of each post, I will ask a question.  Everyone who answers the question will get one entry per question.  If you also sign up to follow the blog, you get another entry.  Once the Coffin Hop is through, I will put the names in my trusty contest skull and draw the winners.  This year, the prizes are:

First Place- A signed copy of In Memoriam and Wicked Tales for Wicked People. 

Second Place- Will get a signed copy of either book.  You get to choose which one.

So, get out there and check out the other spooks on the Hop and enjoy the week before Halloween.  I know I will!

  1. My favorite horror novel has to be Waters’ THE LITTLE STRANGER – just because of the narrator. Yo, we don’t know if he lies or not, if these things happened or not, if he pushed the girl or not…

    Close second is LET THE RIGHT ONE IN by Lindqvist. OMG, now these vamps don’t sparkle…

    Happy Hopping, Brent♥

  2. Ooohhh! That’s a hard one… Probably ‘Usher’s Passing’ by Robert McCammon. I was very young when I read it, and I’d say it was the first horror novel that I experienced on a tactile level, not just as an instrument of escapism and pleasure. Something about it grew in and around me until I was a part of the story itself – not just vitalizing or imagining the people or places, but there with them; fully engulfed in the surroundings. It’s one of the few novels I’ve read more than once.

  3. Hi Brent. I would say Blatty’s “The Exorcist.” The Devil makes for a great villain–powerful, seductive, smart, witty, and even charming in his way. Plus I really enjoyed the Damian Karras character. This is a book I’ve read several times, and will surely read many more!

  5. Hey, Brent! I would have to say The Amityville Horror. That book scared the crap out of me in my teens. I read it many times. Whether true or hoax, I really don’t think anyone can say it isn’t scary-good. I also read every Michael Slade book that comes out. Headhunter is so good I’ve read it multiple times.
    Cheers, man! Happy Hopping!
