Happy Halloween!

I just wanted to wish everyone a safe and happy Halloween. I decided to leave you with a movie clip from one of my favorite horror flicks. The scene is from Stephen King's Sleepwalker's. Remember kiddies, NO VEGETABLES, NO DESSERT! Oh, and don't eat too many razor-blade apples.

The Road To Hell!

I have had the pleasure of conversing with and getting to know author, blogging/ writing/buddy, Jackie Kessler. She was kind enough to give me an ARC of her long awaited sequel to her breakout novel, HELL'S BELLE'S. The follow-up sequel, THE ROAD TO HELL, is a perfect follow-up to Belle's. These are the first two novels in Mrs. Kessler's Hell on Earth series.

TRTH continues to follow the story of the ex-succubus named Jezebel, who now goes by the name of Jesse Harris. Jesse is still dating her "White Knight", Paul Hamilton, who has no idea that he's dating an ex-demon, at first. She also still has her fascinating job of being a stripper.

Jesse continues to be haunted by her past---literally. She is constantly contacted by the incubus, Daun, and Lillith tries to kill her every chance she gets. Jesse just wants to leave Hell behind but her former demon cohorts just won't leave her alone. She has a helpful Angel in her life as well. Jesse now must return to Hell in order to move on with her life.

TRTH is action-packed with too many twists and turns to mention. I loved it! Every page will keep you captivated. If you haven't read Hell's Belle's, be sure to pick up a copy and then pick up a copy of The Road To Hell, coming to stores on November 6, 2007. If you don't want to wait, you can go through Amazon. You'll love this book---just like I do! Look for the 3rd installment in the series, HOTTER THAN HELL in stores August 2008.

Violence Against Women of Color

Being a writer of horrors, I make jokes and have alot of fun on this blog. At times, we all must recognize that there are real horrors going on all around us and it is up to us to bring about change. This is not just for my sisters of color, but for all women---and men. I found this e-mail (post) on my friend, Gwyneth's (

Hello Sisters,

Recent events in the United States have moved us to action. Violence against women is sadly, not a new phenomenon in our country or in the world, however, in the last year women of color have experienced brutal forms of violence, torture, rape and injustice which have gone unnoticed, received little to no media coverage, or a limited community response. We are responding to:

The brutal and inhumane rape, torture, and kidnapping of Megan Williams in Logan , West Virginia who was held by six assailants for a month.

Rape survivors in the Dunbar Housing Projects in West Palm Beach , Florida one of whom was forced to perform sexual acts on her own child.

A 13 year old native American girl was beaten by two white women and has since been harassed by several men yelling “white power” outside of her home.

Seven black lesbian girls attempted to stop an attacker and were later charged with aggravated assault and are facing up to 11 year prison sentences.

In a Litany of Survival, Audre Lorde writes, “When we are silent, we are still afraid. So it is better to speak remembering we were never meant to survive.”

These words shape our collective organizing to break the silence surrounding women of color’s stories of violence. We are asking for community groups, grass-root organizations, college campus students and groups, communities of faith, online communities, and individuals to join us in speaking out against violence against women of color. If we speak, we cannot be invisible.Join us and stand up to violence against women by wearing Red on October 31, 2007.

I have attached two important documents detailing the "Be Red Be Bold Wear Red on October 31st Campaign."

Please send questions to
