The Official Launch of Horror Haiku and Other Poems! #OctoberFrights Day 2




On this second day of the October Frights Blog Hop, I am officially launching my new book of horror poetry, Horror Haiku and Other Poems, so today I give a peek at this delightfully dark book. Plus, there's a small poetry excerpt from the book, the book trailer, a link to the Facebook launch party, and two giveaways for copies of the book and a poster of the creepy cover art.


Horror Haiku and Other Poems






Words linger... 
In the darkness of shadows, in the distant screams. 
They whisper past the drip, drip of blood. 
The strange beauty of words hide, waiting for you.

Embrace the horror.

Venture past safe reality, into the world of terror told in verse. Horror Haiku and Other Poems brings forth surreal dread and spins it in artistic countenance. From small chilling bites of poetry, to murky morsels of fright, come find where the words haunt you, where they live and die. 








Horror Haiku and Other Poems is available on:




And for the month of October you can get it for only .99 cents!



And now a bit of how the book came to be...

This compilation was born from the murky recesses of social media (otherwise known as Twitter) and the blood-dripping delights of #HorrorHaikuesday. As part of that weekly event I had written many creepy poems in the haiku style, so I took those bits of verse, mixed in a few more longer style poems, and pulled Horror Haiku and Other Poems out of my publishing hat. The book contains thirty-eight haiku style poems and eighteen longer form poems to form its black innards, along with some appropriately spooky accompanying photos.



An Excerpt:





Shadows over rust
Forsaken carnival fun
mask the gate to Hell

I can’t see well. Pain.
My wife is holding something.
My eyeball. I scream.
