Unreliable narrator Michael Montoure writes horror & urban fantasy about hidden truths, secret dealings, & our changing pasts. He's standing right behind you.

“She herself is a haunted house. She does not possess herself; her ancestors sometimes come and peer out of the windows of her eyes and that is very frightening. She has the mysterious solitude of ambiguous states; she hovers in a no-man’s land between life and death, sleeping and waking.”

Angela Carter, “The Lady of the House of Love”  (via words-and-coffee)

Angela Carter’s writing is so good it makes me want to quietly walk away from my keyboard and maybe not come back.

Shoutout to maker-of-most-badass-gadgetry winneganfake: Do you by any chance make these precious babies in smaller sizes? (like 2/3-ish?)  An itty bitty baby bat related to me is turning 8 soon and has been oogling these for months, but doesn’t have boots large enough for them…

I can do them custom. Just drop me an email through the tormented artifacts site and we can go over details.

These boot-wings that winneganfake makes are just ridiculous and utterly pointless and I kind of want a pair really badly.

Getting ready to do some podcasting!! Horror Ho!

That’s a pretty damn classy looking picture there, actually! Taken just before we recorded the latest episode of the dontreadthelatinpodcast, our bi-weekly look at horror movies. Jen had a couple shots of Fireball Cinnamon Whisky, and I was running on four hours’ of sleep, so it was a pretty fun episode. :)

Hey, just a quick reminder that the Countdown Sale is still going on for my novel, Still Life, which Jillian Venters (gothiccharmschool)’s favorite vampire novel of 2013. From her review:

"Still Life feels familiar — it’s full of themes and characters that are woven into the shared subconscious of goths (or anyone else who has ever felt unsure or alone, seeking something or someone to provide that electric jolt of connection), but none of it is a cliche. It’s a novel of emotional truths, dark and bright, dressed up in fangs and post-modern ironic velvet.”

I’m still very gratified that she liked it — it’s definitely not a typical vampire novel. It deconstructs the whole idea of vampires, and completely reverses the normal human/vampire power dynamic. Writing it was a hell of a journey, and I’m glad it’s starting to find its audience.

You’ve got about five hours left to buy it on Amazon for just $3.99. After that it goes up to $4.99, and it’ll go back to it’s normal price of $5.99 at midnight tomorrow. If you grab a copy, let me know what you think.
