A quiet evening. Devilbunny, absinthe, and a “Gothic Satanic Romance”.

If you’re a writer and you see this post, stop what you’re doing.

WHENEVER YOU SEE THIS POST ON YOUR DASH, STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING AND WRITE ONE SENTENCE FOR YOUR CURRENT PROJECT.

Just one sentence. Stop blogging for one minute and write a single sentence. It could be dialogue, it could be a nice description of scenery, it could be a metaphor, I don’t care. The point is, do it. Then, when you finish, you can get back to blogging.

If this gets viral, you might just have your novel finished by next Tuesday.

I tried hunting down some titles from Avon’s “Satanic Gothic” series, but only came up with a handful of books. I feel like there has to be more, why make an imprint with so few books?! I found even less covers too!

Lord Satan by Louisa Bronte
Her Demon Lover by Louisa Bronte
The Twisted Tree by Lynn Benedict
the Mark of the Rope by Miriam Lynch
Vengeance of the Cat Goddess by Jennifer Stephens
The Devil’s Dance by Jan Alexander
Island of Fear by Roxanne Dent
When The Century Blooms by June Wetherell
The Sorcerers by Dorian Winslow
Deadly Friendship by Alice Ramirez
Red Wine of Rapture by Margaret Worth


These all vary in price online, some of them are a couple dollars, some of them are over $20. It all seems to depend on how amazing the title and cover is.

Hello, list of books I will eventually own. 

I have Her Demon Lover (not with that cover art, alas), and it is delightfully lurid. Very much a GOTHIC Romance, oh my yes.

Avon : Satanic Gothic series, early ’70s
[ as in : ‟Ding-Dong, Avon calling!” ]
Yes. That Avon.Kind of. Can’t. Handle it … 

There’s a whole line of Avon “Satanic Gothic” series from the early 70s? I am so excited I am almost crying, that is not exaggeration at all. I KNOW WHAT’S ON MY BOOKSTORE WISHLIST.

I didn’t know about this one! I need this one, too! Is there a website that lists all of the titles in the Avon “Satanic Gothic” line? Because they ALL MUST BE MINE.

I suspect tonight is the night to finally start reading this particular gothic romance. Because “A Satanic Gothic Romance” will surely lift my mood, right?

You’d think I’d remember how involved the process of subduing the feral petticoats and corralling the long skirts is, but noooo. I’m surprised every time. 

Next, find the stash of black lace trim, to add to one of the long skirts.

You darlings. Thank you for all the nice things you’ve been saying, they are helping. And tomorrow will be better, I’m sure of it. 

… maybe I should distract myself by going and organizing the pile of skirts that have taken over part of the bedroom floor. 

I am not having the greatest of days, and yesterday was kind of difficult, too. Tell me good things?

When you’re a goth and handed your card by the Elder Goth Cabal that doesn’t really exist, you’re given a can of hairspray imbued with +25 fortitude.

(Thats the only legitimate argument for why my hair is still attached to my head after years of continuous bleaching, dying, hanging wigs, falls and hair pieces from it, as well as straightening, crimping, and backcombing.)

Hats for me to aspire to.
