Calgary Horror Con 2022

A couple of weekends ago, I attended the Calgary Horror Con. It was my first time as a vendor, and it was a blast!

The organizers are a hard working team. They did a brilliant job at pulling this all together after being cancelled multiple times. Thank you to all of them!

I got to hang out with some amazing local talent! I was honored to share a table with both the devilish duo at 7th Terrace publishing, and the amazing author and editor, J. J. Reichenbach. They were delighted (well, sort of), to be covered in glitter and dancing to Funky Town, compliments of Bon Julie.

The event attracts some hardcore horror fans. Some of them go to great lengths to perfect their costumes. My favorite was the one of many Michaels who had his cold, cold stare nailed down. I felt a shiver creep down my spine. The event was also filled with heavy metal lovers. I saw some really amazing vests. Head bangers are a super friendly bunch.

Submersing myself into the sea of horror and heavy metal lovers, I found some authentic fans for my books. Especially the 80s Metal Murder series. It turns out that the vintage cover for Final Track has some merit. The font and the imagery drew people in. I am happy I still have some copies to take to upcoming events.

I tapped into my 80s metal core, and got inspired by some good old classics. I love doing makeup. Finding my vibe and tapping into it to represent my books was such a great experience.

I’ve never felt like a natural sales person. Selling my books can be challenging. Horror Con was a place where I could authentically tap into my vibe, amp up my love for the Heavy Metal Horror that I’ve written, and share my creations with true fans. I can’t wait to go back next year!

If you want to get your hands on a vintage print copy of Final Track, stay tuned here. I’ll be turning up the voltage on my local store to reach more readers.

Book Launch Week Day 5

Let’s talk about the star of the show, Back Track.

Back Track is the 3rd book in the 80s Metal Murder series. I can’t believe my first novel turned into a trilogy!

It’s 1989. The moon is full. Rock is Gothic.

The exsanguinated remains of a young girl are found in a park in big-city Toronto. Her eyes are circled with blood-red makeup. Her lips are painted black. She’s a duplicate demon doll from a case gone cold sixteen years ago.

A case that has haunted Det. Mahoney ever since.

Thrust into an investigation festering with ulterior motives, Det. Mahoney must confront the corpse faces of dead girls whispering of his failure to save them.

The moon is waxing toward full. The killer leaves a trail of bloodless bodies tainted with bite marks and animal hair.

Det. Mahoney goes off the rails into his own investigation. Will he catch a human monster before another victim is bled out? Or will the glam night creature descend into hibernation until the next cycle of kills?

Book Launch Week Day 4

Today we will have a DOUBLE treat day! I missed posting this yesterday. This means that I will be posting TWO treats for you today as part of Book Launch Week.

First treat. Check out this killer sale. As part of Book Launch Week, I am running a promo. The promo includes a group of authors. Each author is offering up 1 or 2 of their psychological thrillers ON SALE!

Book Launch Week Day 2

To continue celebrating the launch of Book 3 in the 80s Murder Metal series, today I bring you another sale. Oh yes! Acid Track, book 2 in the series, is on sale for only $1.99 this week only.

Acid Track is a fusion of 70s acid rock, The Doors style, and True Detective. Det. Mahoney finds himself spiraling down a dusty LP path to unravel the Lizard King infused fantasy of a serial killer.

Book Launch Week

Welcome to BOOK LAUNCH WEEK for Back Track!

Over 5 years ago, I decided to see if I could write a novel. It wasn’t easy, but it was worth it.

Fast forward to today, and I can’t believe that I have just launched the 3rd book in my 80s Metal Murder series!! I have a trilogy, and I am very excited about it.

As part of launch week, there are many activities going on. Stay tuned right here, and you won’t miss a thing.

The first BIG THING is a SALE on the 1st book in series. Final Track is on sale right now for only $0.99. Oh yes, isn’t that seriously cool?

Grab your copy and dig your claws in!

Massive Book Makeover

It has been far too long since I’ve written a post. Far, far, too long!

I’ve been shut in my office working, working, working. This year has started off with quite the journey for me. My beloved psychological serial killer series has had a complete makeover!

The dark and twisted stories of a detective plagued with hallucinations of corpse faces on the hunt for serial killers with demented filters on reality remain untouched. The stories are delicious.

The packaging, the covers, the look and feel, have been completely redone. They look fabulous. They seep 80s Metal Murder.

Final Track and Acid Track have been revealed and remain available for your entertainment.

The third book, Back Track, will be unleashed upon the world soon! The cover reveal will be on June 2. The book will be launched on June 9. If you want in on the early access and exclusive online event, join Bon Julie’s rocking newsletter.
