Franki Love is an extremely talented singer/songwriter that I’ve been following for some time now.

Today we have special guests as part of our #31Nightmares
Please welcome Michael Patrick and his cheetah to the clouds.
Below is their contribution to our madness.
The night falls around me as I look outside soft chirps fill the air and the summer sky is charged
My family shuffles his feet up and down the stairs I wonder if he is aware of the danger I am trying to tell him about without scaring him
He frightens easily and often times I have to lay him down and comfort him I am aware of what scares him even if never his demon I have yet seen.
I stand guard on many nights while he dreams and fights the darkness.
No one will hurt him, not even the Devil himself dare try me.
My energy runs low and I softly walk to my Family and gently shake him.
It is time for us to switch now, time for him to wake and time for me to run down and catch the sunbeams.
I sure hope my Family catches the silver glint before it expands and threatens us all.
He has never let me down as he shuffles once again down the stairs.

You can find Michael and his cheetah at The Inner Circle
and some of his social media accounts.
This has been
It’s been three years now since we first began this series. Now, becoming a sort of tradition backed by horror-loving demand,
When we first started this madness in 2015, we did so in tribute to man whose life has touched so many in their respective fields. That man is Mr. Wes Craven, and you can read about how this series got its start here. Since then, it has grown into much more—a gathering of us horror heads, if you will.
For now, my Snapping Turtle family would simply like to welcome you here. Don’t forget! CardCastles Terms apply here during this event as well as across all social media accounts. We’ve got some guests coming up while we waltz through each day and night. Please be kind. We don’t want to have to feed you to our guards.
If you are into the world of special effects like we are here at home, there is someone I highly recommend following that we haven’t mentioned before.
His name is Kevin Yagher
and his Instagram account can be found below.
I had already been familiar with Kevin’s work from hearing his name floated around horror circles. What I didn’t know was the sheer number of things Mr. Yagher has worked on. If you do a little digging, you’ll find out this man’s trail of past work is seriously impressive.
One of the highlights worth mentioning is recently Kevin started selling some of his work as well:
How cool is that?
