Horror is a fun genre to write and read. It's captivating and terrifying, tapping in to our inner most fears. That surge of adrenaline you feel with watching a horror movie and going to a horror themed amusement park makes you feel more alive. There's something primal about fear that makes some people enjoy it. But what happens when the illusions are taken away? What happens when the stories being told aren't stories at all?
I'm developing a blog series I'm calling Chiller Chronicles. It's a series about true unsolved, unexplained, and terrifying mysteries and encounters. Told in a fiction style, these stories are anything but. Be prepared to read some chilling tales which you might have wished you hadn't.
Above you can see the banner that I created for the series. I'd love to get your thoughts. I designed it myself in Photoshop and I'm pretty proud of that fact. There isn't an exact date for when I'll be premiering this new blog series but I'll be sure to give you more info in the future. For now, you'll have to be satisfied by this teaser:
It had gone viral only a few days before and the images were creepy, to say the least. He remembered seeing Elisa in this very elevator. She seemed agitated and in some sort of altered state. Mania was the closest word he could describe. Her erratic hand gestures and sudden movements were unsettling. Like a woman possessed by a demonic being, she would throw around her hands wildly or step in and out of the elevator.
I hope you're excited for this new blog series. I know I am. And that's not all. I plan to make this into a YouTube series in the future. But all of that is to come. I'll let you know more as it happens. I do know each installment will premiere on my Patreon page first. If you want to be the first to read each story, head over to Patreon.com/EvanBondAuthor to become a patron. Until then, thanks for being a supporter and I look forward to scaring you later.
Hello everyone and welcome back to my blog. It's been a while since I updated it. I'd love to tell you I have more coming and stay tuned but to be honest, I don't really know what to do with my blog. I've been overhauling my social media lately. For example, my Instagram page used to consist of book images and other book related content. Yes, I love to read. But that's not my only passion. Quite frankly, I got tired of trying to post cool photos with books. It was a lot of work and took away from my writing. So, I changed it. Now, my Instagram is being used to share fun photos and info about my writing AND I'm showcasing my other passion. The outdoors and Florida.
Florida has a pretty bad rep in the media and most of it is probably warranted. However, I love my state and there's some pretty cool treasures to find as well as beautiful landscapes. I figured, why not share that with the world? Maybe show Florida the way I see it. And on top of that, I've been posting pictures from my personal life and writing and it's been fun and liberating.
But with my blog, I still feel stuck. Like I've said, I love books and I love reading but that's not all there is to life. I'd like to share more from my blog each week but I don't know what. If you have any thoughts or ideas, let me know in the comments below.
Let's get to the point of this post which is, I was interviewed by a local news station while at a book signing. It was really cool but also nerve inducing. The interview aired on Bay News 9 at 10 PM on Sunday. I didn't see it, not knowing what time it aired. But it was neat being the subject of an interview for the event. If anyone saw the interview, let me know. I'm really curious how it all came together.
I am a self-published horror/thriller author. I love reading, writing, and taking long walks through scary parts of the forest. I'm learning new tricks everyday to become a better author and occasionally will share those tips with you. Otherwise, you can read book reviews, info about my writing, and personal stories about my adventures in nature.
