Those familiar with this blog, know that this is the time when I start talking about what scares me or just plain pisses me off. I wouldn’t want to disappoint my friends, so today I’m going to chat with you about something that really chaps my ass about Halloween these days. This has always been my most sacred of all holidays, the most highly anticipated night of the year since I was a wee child. Candy and costumes, wandering around after dark on a school night with friends, dressing up as whatever monster or spook you could talk your mother into doing the makeup for. What’s not to love about Halloween? School parties where my own Mom would dress as the Bride of Frankenstein and hand out treats and cups of witch’s brew, complete with a cauldron boiling smoke from a chunk of dry ice. Even as a teen, when I was much too cool to go Trick-Or-Treating, I still enjoyed dressing up as a zombie and scaring the kids who knocked at my door. Never once have I bitched upon seeing the decorations show up in the stores, the way we do when we see Christmas lights in November. No “Are you kidding me? ALREADY?” I love Halloween. I really do.


I spent the usual amount of time on last year’s costume. A good deal of makeup, custom fangs and colored contacts though less blood than I would’ve liked, but hey, I work in a restaurant. The whole ensemble came across as a sort of New Orleans Voodoo Vampire Queen. It wasn’t as complex as the Zombie Prom Queen from the year before, but I was proud of it. Lou donned his coveralls (he even rolled on the garage floor for authenticity) and his deluxe Michael Myers mask and met me after my shift so we could go out to the bars for a few drinks and to take in all the other costumes. My delight turned sour the second we stepped foot in the first bar. Good God! I had to look twice to make sure I hadn’t wandered into the local strip club! Never in my life had I seen so many half naked women when there was frost on the ground! It was like Spring Break gone horribly wrong (more than usual even!). I quickly ran through every Halloween song I could remember, witches, ghosts, ghouls, vampires, but not a single one mentioned sluts! It is the season for horrors, not whores!


Before you all start thinking I’m hating on the hot chicks, I’m not. First of all, the majority of the naughty nurses, sexy cops and faux french maids that are running around, DO NOT look anything like these models. Oh no, there is no shortage of stuffed bras and cellulite riddled thighs on display. And once again, I am not hating on women who aren’t perfect. Hell, I’m not perfect. And now you will say I am trying to hate on women’s sexuality. Once again, no. I can get my freak on with the best of them! Just ask Captain Louie about his Saucey Wench, or better yet, don’t! It’s none of your damned business anyways 🙂


I have no problem with women who have a healthy love of their bodies, celebrating their own sexiness, but why do they all think that Halloween is an excuse to dress like harlots? Even women who aren’t normally inclined to dress in such a manner, often come wandering in the door in little more than their underwear. I guess I’m a bit of a snob. I don’t see the problem with dressing sexy on Halloween, so long as your costume is at least scary. I have seen my share of erotic vampires and witches. I’m okay with those. I saw a gal dressed as a zombie once with the most impressive rotting bossom. Nothing wrong with that. Halloween can be sexy, heck yeah it can! But there are limits ladies. It’s not an excuse to wear your lingerie and nothing else. And the occasional playboy bunny or cheerleader is alright (actually, cheerleaders can be downright terrifying) but things are getting a bit overdone. Last year I visited 8 bars. EIGHT! And you know what? I was the only vampire. I counted one witch, NO damned zombies and not a single Jason Vorhees. What is this world coming to? The most irritating part was the fact that almost none of the men wore costumes at all! Why should they? They were just there for the parade of flesh, hoping to pick up an inebriated nurse or intoxicated cheerleader on their way out the door.


This is more than a rant. I have a practical purpose to my bitching. You could even call this a Public Service Announcement! There are some inherent dangers that come with this alarming trend. Forget for a moment that it’s October and you run the risk of freezing off your, um, goods.  But as you stumble towards the dancefloor with your randy partner too close behind, you are wearing a skirt so short that should you misstep in those stripper heels and stumble for even a second, he is certain to be ALL up in your business, ensuring that the only Halloween costume you will be purchasing next year will be size 0-3 months! And the most important thing? Anyone who knows anything about horror, knows that the first one to get killed when the slasher comes calling, is the gal in the slutty costume! When it comes down to Run Bitch, Run! you can’t, having traded in your more sensible shoes for 6 inch porn star stillettos and a skirt so short that if you bend over, you will show off your who-who. So one way or another, you’re screwed!


There are 364 other days of the year to dress like a slut. Well okay, 362 because no one does that shit on Christmas or Thanksgiving…then again, there’s Easter too. Okay so there’s LOTS of other occasions to dress as scantily as possible, most of them during the summer, but New Years Eve is always a cold weather option! If you want to make Halloween sexy, try a little witch dress or vamp gown. Leave the French Maid and the Naughty Nurse in the bedroom. Keep it scary, will ya? And be safe. If not, we will miss you when the killer mounts your head on a pike. Well, not so much us ladies, but I’m sure the guys will.

I Am NOT Affliliated With That Prick David Boyer!

Hello friends! It’s Monday again and time for me to jump up on my soapbox. Today is very important for me, and also a little embarrassing. I am going to tell you about a mistake I made and how I was taken in by a scam artist and plagiarist. This is definitely not my most rock star moment. But if you bear with me, you will get to read a free story out of the deal. It’s not one of my best-nowhere near it, having been written early on when I was still susceptible to weak writing and “ly” verbs-but hey! It’s FREE!

A few months ago I was contacted by a man named David Boyer. He was requesting my picture and a flash fiction story for an interview he wanted to do with me for his new website about New Voices In Horror. I had already done a few interviews and didn’t see anything out of the ordinary. I couldn’t have been more wrong. In hindsight, I should have been suspicious that he wasn’t on any of my “friends” lists. How did this bastard find me? At the time, I assumed he was a twitter follower, and we all know about assuming. Also, I should have questioned his request to post one of my stories on his site, but I had an old flash fiction piece that I hadn’t placed anywhere and thought What the Hell! I can help this guy out. I completed the interview, included the picture and story, and requested he send me the link when he posted my interview. I never heard from him again.

A couple of weeks later, I got an email from the editor at Horror Zine stating that she had seen my interview on his site and needed to talk to me. She informed me that although there is no proof he has harmed me yet, merely being associated with David Boyer could be a huge blow to my career. It appears that Mr. Boyer, operating under dozens of aliases, is one of the most prolific plagiarists and scam artists in the horror industry. He has been banned by the Horror Writer’s Association and pulled from selling sites such as Amazon, numerous times, only to pop up elsewhere. They have been trying to nail this guy for YEARS, and he even has the balls to plagiarize Dean Koontz. The worst part? I had heard about this guy before and not made the connection. Allow me a moment to wallow in my shame.

Below, I will be providing some links to information on this prick, and I suggest all writers, and even readers, check it out so they can become familiar with this odious sonofabitch. The odds are high that he will either publish my story as his own, or under my name without paying me any royalties. It’s not a huge loss, but it still pisses me off! I have added a new tab at the top of my website entitled FREE READS. Click on it and you can read the story that he got from me. It’s all I can do to try to protect myself from possible plagiarism. Like I said before, it’s a rough story and not at all up to my current level of writing, but it’s fun and short. I hope you like it.

As for David Boyer? I am currently working with others to get that site shut down and the word out to my fellow writers about this piece of shit excuse for a human being. I will chalk this up as a learning experience, that I can’t afford to be so trusting in the future. This is not my safe little world anymore, publishing is a cut-throat industry, and I will proceed with caution and research before granting interviews. Though this sort of thing really scares me, you know the saying: Fool me once……..

Here’s a link to great article about David Boyer on HorrorZine-if you only read one, make it this one!
