May Monster Madness is Nigh!

It's almost time for the third annual May Monster Madness blog fest!

May Monster Madness was the brainchild of Annie Walls, author of The Famished Trilogy, as an event to satisfy some of those cravings for spooky goodness that may be surfacing at this mid point between Halloween festivities. Of course, every evil genius must have her wicked minions, so Annie enlisted the help of Ked (Something wicKED This Way Comes) and I to assist her in bringing May Monster Madness to life.

In previous years, May Monster Madness was a 7 day event, but as everyone is busy, and it's hard to commit to 7 days of posting, we've decided to make it just one huge day this year on Friday, May 30. This also gives everyone time over the weekend to get around to the blogs of other participants.

The monster theme is very broad. You can post about any kind of monster you fancy from classic monsters like vampires, werewolves, mummies and zombies, to urban legends, to monsters of the human variety like serial killers and mass murderers. Your monsters can be frightening, misunderstood or just plain cute.

The sky is the limit with the type of post too. Express yourself in any way you wish.

For example:

* Fiction
* Poetry
* Article
* Book, movie or TV review
* Recipe
* Photography
* Video
* Art
* Craft
* Fashion
* Gardening
* Music
* Tutorial
* Giveaway

So if you'd like to join the MADNESS, head over to the Annie Walls blog and sign up. When you're there, just click on the blue frog to add your details to the linky.

Remember to grab the May Monster Madness artwork (created by Annie) to add to your sidebar too.

  1. Woo! MMM is back! I plan on reviewing a bunch of public domain horror flicks that start with M. I'm finally going to find out just what in the blue hell a Manster is...

    By the way, it seems like there's some weird glitch or something with last years links to all the participants-the link to my blog's absent on a bunch of those blog pages, like here at LGH. I've no idea if it's just my computer, or something else.

    1. Yes, I think those of us with a penchant for the spooky start to get a little twitchy at this halfway point between Halloweens. May Monster Madness is the perfect antidote, Ali! :D
