Halloween Bloghop October 23-26 CONTEST

What are YOU Afraid Of?
Michael Mandrake

Greetings readers, welcome to the Halloween Bloghop hosted by Sable Hunter. I’m honored to be asked to participate in this event and my post today is about being afraid. Ooh. This is Halloween after all and for whatever reason, people love to be scared. They love haunted houses, scary movies. They dress up like ghouls, witches, goblins. Eek! Seemingly part of the appeal of Halloween is to embrace things you’d normally fear, like zombies. *shudders* Who wants to be around a bunch of dead things. *laughs* But people love them, especially around Halloween.

What am I afraid of? Hmm, let’s see. Mice, snakes, very large insects, you know the usual. And well, I don’t really like haunted houses or scary movies. Jason, Nightmare on Elm Street and Chucky movies don’t appeal to me. I love the old classic horrors like Psycho, even the Exorcist which frightens the beejesus out of me is a great film.

What about you? Are you afraid of vampires, ghosts, scary movies? What about demons? Hmm, these things I am sure I’d be afraid of if I saw them in person. But since I write them, they aren’t scary at all to me.

Here’s a little about my twin vamps, Ryland and Ryder which have a book coming out soon. Be mindful, it is an erotica twincest story so if you’re not into that, perhaps you should stay away. I’m very proud of my vamps and I thank reader Judy S for giving me the idea.

Book One Mon Frere, My True Love Blurb: Twin vamps Ryland and Ryder Durand are only different in personality while the rest is exactly the same. Ryland, the author is calm and conservative while Ryder the club owner is wild and lewd. However, the brothers share the same dark desire and haven’t informed one another. Will that bring them closer together or sever their relationship for all eternity?

Book Two Mon Amour, Forever More Blurb: Identical twins, Ryland and Ryder Durand have consummated their relationship but jealousy and concern about their personality clashes have brought problems to their seemingly perfect union. Will the brothers stay together despite the challenges?

Thanks for giveaway. The one thing that scares me about Halloween is haunted houses never been a fan of them.

I can't stand to watch horror movies. I don't care to be scared out of my mind and then have nightmares, thank you! Especially the zombie movies. The idea of being eaten alive is just... horrifying. I avoid those especially hard.
