Pseudopod – one of my favorite podcasts

Once upon a time I thought I wasn’t a fan of horror. Then I started thinking about it, and well, seeing as I both watch and read horror I was deceiving myself. I am in fact an omnivore when it comes to books, reading everything from genre literature (romance, westerns, detective stories) to literary fiction. And I do love horror, especially writing it!

I read both traditional books, on an e-reader and listen to books, and when I started writing short stories I needed inspiration. The best place for stories that captured my imagination turned out to be Pseudopod. Pseudopod is a high quality podcast that features horror short stories of a varying kind. Some are chilling, some are creepy, some are more scary. All are interesting to listen to. I think about many of them for days, and ponder the question that they pose.

 

My favorite Pseudopod episodes are

1. Granite Requires by T.J. Berry – such a wonderful language in this one! Such an odd world that you get sucked into.

2. The Jamcoi by J.M. McDermott – a horrifying take on preparing non-vegetarian meals

3. Meat by Sandra M. Odell – this one really had me hooked! It was just… a perfect horror story!

4. The Fear by  Richard Harland – there was something so alluring about this one. I wished it would go on forever, and then I didn’t

5. Flat Diane by Daniel Abraham – really evocative and really grabbed at my parental heart. It was just awful, in a good way!

 

Go check out Pseudopod if you want to explore new worlds of horror!

Unleash by Lauren Scribe Harris

We met Lauren on the Writing Excuses cruise, and immediately fell in love with her! She’s such a fun person to be around, and I hope we get to meet her in the future again.

Unleash is an YA urban fantasy about a young woman who is an enslaved member of a magical gang. She is drawn into a war between the magical gangs and the magical police, and ends up hiding in the countryside with her two new friends.

It’s fast paced and action packed, with a lovely trio of characters that interact so wonderfully that I really would love to be friends with them in real life. It’s the perfect book for any teenager that loves books about the supernatural. And the sequel is coming out any day now! Go check out Unleash here on Amazon.

Lycka och fotografering

Det är så roligt att göra såna här fotograferingar! Vi får riktigt bre ut oss kreativt och flickorna får leva in sig i sina roller och riktigt njuta av att springa omkring och vara prinsessor

Och jag – jag njuter både när jag står bakom kameran och när jag kollar igenom bilderna efteråt! Ibland fångas de riktigt lyckliga ögonblicken på bild!

Nya gamla fåtöljer!

Två nya gamla fåtöljer har fått komma hem till oss och bo.

Här passar de utmärkt, med vår kurviga gamla soffa och alla möblerna i antik eller retro-stil.

Vi gillar alla massor! Det blev på nåt sätt ett snäpp mysigare i vardagsrummet och nu har vi äntligen tillräckligt med sittplatser när vi har spelkvällar. Det bästa – det här är loppisfyndade fåtöljer, nya möbler får nytt liv och i precis rätt miljö där de hör hemma tycker vi!
