Before I begin the Night Terrors entry, I wanted to introduce a new series of essays I will be bringing to this blog. As it states in the title, the series will be titled Bygone Eras: Do We Have It (At Least Partially) Wrong?
Because in some ways, I think we do.
The series will be going through the research I did while writing "Descent" and "Kindred" in the Birthrite Series as well as address many popular myths about certain eras and ethnicities (and certain subcultures, such as the Goth community) being dispelled by our lovely mainstream media. Those who are on my Facebook page may have seen several articles I've posted on my page about this very issue in regards to how some view certain eras, time periods, and groups of people. What is true vs. what seems to be fabricated propaganda but is perceived as true by the general populous.
Now, I don't claim to be an expert. Just someone who has always had a fascination with history and delved deeper when I decided to write a book series that involves historical events. And as far as the goths go, I've spent many years in that community, so with that I'm speaking from my own personal experience.
Who knows, maybe I will get really inspired, edit it properly and also offer it as a free ebook (a sort of guide to the Birthrite Series).
I will try to do a new one every week, so stay tuned for it. :)
Until then, have a fabulous weekend and stay tuned for my Night Terrors blogpost! :)
My short story, "The Cemetery by the Lake" is now available at Smashwords as a FREE download. More retailers will follow, but Smashwords is pretty compatible with most e-reader and PC formats.
