As most of you know, I am a filmmaker and film fan. My tastes range from the obscure horror film to the occasional blockbuster. To be honest, I'm not very likely to be found in a theater watching the latest big budget spectacle. Marvel may get me in there every once in a while, but most other studios just don't put out product that interests me very often.
With that in mind, I'm taking a look at some of the latest trailers for upcoming films. I have to say that I'm not very excited by what's being offered.
I’ve been published since the beginning of the year with Rejected For
Content, a horror anthology that covers stories that were or would have been
rejected for content. I submitted Drift, a story about a serial killer who
comes home to a monster worse than him.

My latest book is Divergence Erotica from a different angle, and it comes as an
alternative to most of the short collections on the market because of the
themes and ideas expressed within. It’s a strange mix of BDSM, strange tales
that happen to have sexual content, and some short erotic pieces that are there
to stimulate readers.
everyone. My name is Chris Galford and I’m a bit of a bibliophile. In essence,
I surround myself with stories and never look back. I also may in fact be that
kid from the playground who got just a wee bit too creative with his
imagination. Dragons forever.

with As Feathers Fall (to be

Please introduce yourself.
My name is
Patty Apostolides, and I’ve written three sweet romance novels, a
novella, poetry book, and children’s book. I was born in Greece, and
have lived in America most of my life. In my first career, I was a
biologist and conducted cancer research. In my second career, I was a
stay-at-home mother and homeschooled my son. I'm in my third career
now, and have become an author. I might become a teacher in my fourth
career, after I get my MFA degree. We shall see!
Who's the badass actress-turned-crime fighter trying to clean up the streets of a corrupt city? Staxx! I'm just talking about Shelby. For those of you who are not familiar with her, Shelby Staxx is a recurring character from a series of shorts by Azbest Films. Played by the talented Charisse Norment, she was created by writer/director Sam Bahre. The character is also important to me, because it marked the first time I really worked with Azbest on a production. I had shot a couple of small things with them (like the book trailer to The Check Out) but had not made a film (short or otherwise) in quite some time. This film marked the beginning of a fruitful period for all of us. But, before we get into the story of Shelby Staxx, take a look at the original short. Warning: Very NSFW
