I had quite a good spell of writing, writing, WRITING!
It’s paid off. The collection of horror stories I now have to offer to readers is growing fast. With three stories already part of some killer collections, and a full on collaboration soon to be released, it’s hard NOT to get excited.
Stop on by my updated horror books page for a peruse for full details on how to get your hands on each collection and a chance to join in on an upcoming celebration for a new launch.
I can’t believe that three series of story time have been recorded and shared.
This last one was just as delightful as the first two. I fall in love with every dark story that I choose to read to you, thus, it always seems like I won’t find more stories that I love just as much, but I do.
This last series featured some dark delights. If you missed any of them, simply scroll down a little. Be warned, these stories will chill your bones and keep you up at night. So, before you indulge, poor a stiff drink and curl up in a blanket. Then let Demon Julie come into your bedroom and tell you a terrifying tale, or two.
Stay tuned for a more story time coming soon!
Since it is Halloween month, I am on the hunt for Halloween themed stories, or stories of ghosts, gouls and the like. If you have a story that you would like read, please comment below or contact me! All that is required is that I get permission from the author to read his/her work.
It’s time to wrap up the first series in story time. What fun it has been to take my listeners back to the time when mom or dad would read you a story and tuck you in at night. It has been a pure delight to introduce to you the adult version of story time. The stories told here are ones of horror, and the time of day that you listen to them is up to you. Do you need the light on? Or can you immerse yourself in a terrifying story in the darkness of night?
I did very much enjoy doing this series. Some terrific horror writers were kind enough to give me permission to read from their devilish delights. Thank you to each an every one of these authors. Please, do check out what they are up to, all links are provided below. Take a listen to the readings you missed, and if you like the stories, get your full copy of their terrifying work.
It has been so much fun reading these beautifully written works.
If you missed out, or want to listen again, please do. Grab a morning coffee, or a late night cocktail, curl up on your couch with a blanket, and allow me to send a prickle running down your spine, or perhaps whisper a chill through your bones.
Goodbye, beloved series. My little demon heart shall forever hold you within.
Killers AND demons. Why, Julie, why? Why did you create such a ghastly sounding website?
I’ll tell you why.
The killers part comes from my obsession with serial killers. I’m absolutely fascinated with such dark, twisted minds, and have been for a long time. I’ve been watching Criminal Minds for years, and I squeal with delight when an endless stream of re-runs appears on TV allowing me a full day of binging on murder while the rain pelts against the window. When I’m cooking dinner or my latest French pastry creation, I love to put Forensic Files on in the background and pick up tidbits of gruesome acts and how DNA, fibres, or stupidly left paper trails lead the authorities to the killer.
I love to problem solve. I love investigations, and poking holes in the fictitious, or real ones, that I watch with eagerness. As for the killers, well, it scares me to death what real people are capable of. This particular type of killer – the serial killer – the kind of person who cannot be completely and accurately psychologically diagnosed, and who becomes so obsessed with a dark fantasy that he or she must play it out over and over – like some sort of horror flick – until it is perfect, fascinates the part of my brain that can’t look away. I can’t help wanting to figure out why someone can murder dozens of people and do unspeakable things to the bodies. I can’t help wanting to understand why it happens and why it’s so difficult to stop, to prevent, to nip in the bud. It’s terrifying. Just like you, I have my favourite genres of movies and books – and scary shit just happens to be right on top.
