Hey horror addicts, we are ready to start work on our third anthology which we are going to call: The Horror Addicts Guide To Life. The idea for this book is for it to be like a self-help book for people who are obsessed with all things horror. We think that horror fans look at the world in a certain way that is different from other people. Horror Addicts have a great sense of humor, they like to be scared, and they are fascinated by things that go bump in the night. To put it another way, normal people may look at an abandoned building and think nothing of it, while a horror fan would look at that same building and wonder what kind of supernatural beings live there? How did they get there? What do they do in there?
What we are looking for in this anthology is anything that Horror Addicts would need to make their lives better. This is meant to be a fun book that doesn’t take itself too seriously. We want some sections that could be strictly for laughs and some that are more DIY. This anthology would cover a broad range of topics and we are currently in a brain storming phase for what we want in it. All of us at HorrorAddicts.net look at horror as our passion. If horror is your passion also and you have some ideas for us, let us know. Even if you don’t consider yourself a writer but you have a horror related hobby, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We want to hear from you. Here are some subjects that we would like included in our anthology:
