Need more convincing? Here’s the official teaser:

The Great Lakes Horror Company presents this collection of 19 new and previously published horror stories from some of the best writers lurking on the chilling shores of the wild and wicked north. Cannibals, zombies, vampires, vengeful gods, psychotics and the supernatural are just a few of the terrifying things waiting for you in this collection featuring members of the Horror Writer’s Association Ontario Chapter. Gathered here are award-winning best-selling authors, bold and bloody newcomers, and more than a few unhinged souls telling tales that will make your blood run cold. Illustrated by celebrated genre artists, Group Hex Vol. 1 transports you to the hungry shores of future worlds, to the heart of mystical planes, and to the rooms of what seem like perfectly normal suburban houses…but they aren’t. And after reading these tales, you may never be the same again.

It’s been a very exciting week in the BLEEDERverse. As of today, BLEEDER is a Featured Story on Wattpad.com. This is tremendously exciting and a wonderful of culmination of three-and-a-half years of work. A huge thank you to everyone who has offered support and feedback on the book along the way, you have helped to shape and polish this novel in more ways than you can imagine.

In other BLEEDER news – and the big reason there hasn’t been a RULER Chapter 9 yet – the novel edit goes off to its editor this coming Monday. Meaning, it’s about to get one gigantic step closer to being a book you can hold in your hands. If I’m to be honest, I’m nervous, but also super excited.

After Monday, I’ll be back into RULER for the rest of the summer.

And that’s all the news that’s fit to print.

Okay folks, I did it! I tweaked Chapter 9 of BLEEDER (“Keel”) to plug a glaring plot hole in the story and have now entered both that book and its completed sequel, LETTERS FROM NEW YORK, in the Wattpad Prize 2014 contest (just under the gun too). If you loved the series, any support you could give it during the next few months would be super awesome (if you haven’t already voted for the chapters, please consider doing so, for instance). I just hit the third trimester of my pregnancy yesterday, and I’m trying really, really hard to get you all some new RULER chapters, so any cheerleading/word-spreading about the Blood Magic saga that you guys could do while I’m pounding away at that would be much appreciated.

New interview with me hits the web! I talk about how I got started writing, why I’m so drawn to the dark stuff, and offer some (hopefully helpful) advice to aspiring scribes. Read it at http://www.betweenthe-lines.com/#!deathofcool/c210v.

A couple months back I was interviewed about BLEEDER by Canadian ‘zine and indie culture magazine BROKEN PENCIL (print edition, pictured below, on newsstands now) for an article about Canada’s Underground YA Scene. You can read the whole piece online at: http://www.brokenpencil.com/news/the-ya-underground

Over the Christmas holidays I’ll be cutting together a book trailer for BLEEDER using Jerry’s amazing chapter art.  I had the chance to hear the score written especially for it earlier this week for the first time and I can honestly say it is a thing of a beauty. I have no idea how/why I’ve been blessed with so many amazing contributors on this project, but yeah, wow… just wow. I can’t wait to share it with all of you.

In other news, I’ll be revealing the cover art and teaser blurb for LETTERS FROM NEW YORK late next week. The novella’s roughly a quarter written now and on track for its March debut. While it won’t be absolutely necessary to read this story before RULER, it does continue to expand the world, and fills in a bit of the time jump between books (for those who can’t bear the wait for more Mills and Keel). I think that’s all from the BLEEDERverse for now. Monica, over and out.
