Welcome to all, whether you have come here from my sister blog to this my poetry blog ( at http://www.helenvalentina.com ) or through some other circumstance.
Today is the launch day of The Darker Realms, a blog dedicated to all things dark, scary, horrific and unsettling – the things that don’t just go bump in the night! The things with teeth – literal and metaphorical. The things we deny but secretly know are just round the corner…
January 1 2015 seemed a fitting day to launch this new aspect of my writing. Though in truth it is not really new. I cut my reading, and my early writing, teeth on horror novels and short stories with the darker sensibilities. And in 2014 I wrote a trilogy in the horror vein returning to this theme after writing other novels and stories in different genres. Hopefully 2015 will see this begin to be published!
This felt like nothing other than a homecoming, so I hope for those of you who like this type of writing this may be a home away from home for you also from time to time. I’d be delighted if you visited here and grateful for any comments or contributions you may wish to provide. I’d also love to collaborate with any artists or photographers out there who work in the darker realms too. If you are interested check out my contact details on the About page. 🙂
For now, welcome again, a very happy new year to you all! I hope 2015 is brilliant for each and every one of you!
And with that, check out today for the first instalment of the one of my serial horror stories. I hope you like it! 🙂 I plan to publish episodes for these serial stories every other day, so do pop in again and check them out, and see what happens next!! 🙂
