Guest Post: Hart Johnson...

Hey all, I want you all to say hey to Hart Johnson, also known as our favorite Watery Tart! Give her a warm welcome. Take it away, Hart!

Serial Killers vs. Killer Serials

First, I really want to thank Mel for hosting me! It's fabulous to be here. There are only so many people brave enough for my insanity, so I always appreciate it when someone is, and thank you to all of YOU for indulging me today!!!

Halloween is that odd season when suddenly we all love those serial killers, eh? The silver screen brings to light the Freddie Kruegers, Jasons and Hannibal Lechters. They fascinate and intrigue us and we commit to watching and reading about these sick, twisted people to our heart's palpitating aneurism... erm...

Don't get me wrong. I love a good scare, but I am here to make a point-by-point as to why THIS Halloween you should try KILLER SERIALS instead!

Before I start, a brief on what a Killer Serial IS: It is a FABULOUS STORY told in Serial!!! Just like Dickens and Dumas used to do it... small volumes, 40-100 pages that are a part of a bigger tale...

So there.

 NOW... Why YOU want to give Killer Serials a try this Halloween instead of Serial Killers...
5)  None of those pesky masks!!! (I mean seriously, who can breathe?)

4)  Still a gloriously high body count!!! (I've killed half the US population—take THAT wimpy little Freddie Krueger!)

3)  No peeing your pants!!! Seriously—you are afraid to get up and leave those serial killers because a) they might be hiding in your bathroom and b) you will miss something... Killer serials, on the other hand are bite-sized doses so you can pee between episodes!

2)  Serial Killers are only popular at Halloween. Killer SERIALS are fabulous all year long!!!

1)  Serial Killers are so 1970s... Killer Serials are the NEXT. BIG. THING.

If you want to find out MORE about the killer serials out there, a bunch of us are sharing blurbs and why we love this stuff on Thursday... we might even give a bunch of stuff away!!!

I encourage you to come see what we've got. I will be offering my first episode (about 100 pages) free Thursday and Friday.

Author note: I have written a few cozy mysteries under the pen name Alyse Carlson, but this is both my first self-publishing, and my first SERIAL adventure (but MAN, I love the serial!) Find Hart: Blog Facebook Twitter (though it is nearly fraud to claim I tweet)
