message 1: by Ms. Nikki (new)

Ms. Nikki (miznikki) | 13944 comments Hiya, folks! January is almost over and February celebrates love on Valentine's Day. So, for February let's celebrate with bloody hearts, walls painted in crimson, and body parts as confection (too dark? Not for me!).

My poem to you:

If you're an author, don't post your own stuff.
We support you, but enough is enough.
Make your vote count, we'll be sure to listen.
Not every read wins, that's not our mission.
We want an awesome story that we can devour.
Stay up late, read into the midnight hour.
A nice slasher read or love gone wrong.
Can you hear the screaming?
It's my favorite song.

Nightwhere by John Everson Nightwhere

Horns by Joe Hill Horns

Baby Fever by Kyle Noble Baby Fever

and maybe this list will help:
