Charlie Courtland's Blog - Posts Tagged "dark-comedy"

Beginning in May, every Thursday, Bitsy Bling Books is proud to announce the unveiling of its latest feature Twisted Tales. Posts will include authors, books, giveaways and more from the genres: Dark fiction, dark comedy, absurdist, bizarro and pulp fiction. Of course, some will fall into multiple categories and others are difficult to pigeon hole--but don't worry I reserve the right to make it up as I go along. One thing is for certain, most books come with a warning label and are strangely entertaining. Proceed with caution because your eyeballs just might melt.

I have some great authors lined up so if you're a fan -- you'll def. want to pop by. Giveaways included :)

First up is author Scott Semegran Plus, book giveaways

It's Time to Join 2012 Twisted Tales Reading Challenge!

I'm a total nutbar and I really like reading about other nutbars. I've decided to open a 2012 Twisted Tales Reading Challenge to spread awareness about the deranged, comical and mostly absurd sub-culture lurking in the bizarre minds of lesser known authors. Okay, some are famous authors. However, most aren't, but should be recognized for their sicko plots and weird thoughts. Twisted Tales covers a wide range and often is a sub-genre or appendage of a larger category (horror, mystery, sci-fi, fantasy, suspense, ect.) which will allow for cross-over challenge goodness. Yep, that's even more of an incentive to join. If I get you to read at least one bizarre book in 2012 I will do a glorious dance and appease the reading Gods with my influential greatness.

Everyone and anyone at all levels of reading and involvement are welcome! Newbies encouraged :)
