The Horror Within is getting ready to launch. My cousin Rich is doing an awesome job of translating my many needs and wants into realities.
Stuff we’ll have and do:
–Accounts for all regular contributors, plus blank accounts so that guest contributors and fiction submissions can all have proper bylines.
–Awesome graphics that H has been working his ass off on. (Don’t worry, his actual ass is cute as ever)
–Normal stuff like FB like buttons, our Twitter feed, and cool widgets
–Soon everyone will have custom graphics for their regular content.
–A fully functioning Submission page, so we won’t have to use submittable.
–The ability to do polls.
–Yoast SEO management.
There’s probably more I’m forgetting. I’m awesome at forgetting.
I still need to find some fiction, reprints I think, to have ready for the first few weeks after launch. For the time being, we’ll probably have new content a few times a week. Hoping though, that will become more frequent with time.
What we need:
–Regular interviewers to interview mostly writers and authors.
–Novelists who want to pimp their wares.
–Regular swag writer who can commit to 1-2 articles a month about horrific analog games, figures, apparel and other horror swag.
–People dying to advertise with us. 🙂
In other news, I thought I was way more caught up with work than I actually am. Seems the calendar on my iPod is not syncing with my mac mini. Talk about first world problems that are a genuine pain in the ass…!
Getting more proactive about fiction writing and subbing. Added a subplot and roughly 1,000 words to my short story Raja, then subbed it to a paying market. I’ve always enjoyed that story a lot and look forward to finding it a good home.
Getting a free veggie spiraler so I can review it. Got some free massagers for review earlier in the week. No you filthy minded jackals, not THAT kind of massager. They’re supposed to be for cellulite, but since I don’t give a crap about cellulite, I’m just using them on my calves and thighs because it feels awesome. It’s a nobbly roller thing, and pretty durable. Plus, I love getting free stuff. Because FREE stuff!
