Last year, there were a few sleeper mentions I later got questions about. At least once during our madness here we like to mention something most people may not have heard of.
One of my favorites out of those is indeed The Watcher in the Woods.
This is an old one but it is so worth digging for if you can find it. The story is surrealistic almost to a point of science fiction if it weren’t for the heavy horror undertones.
There is no blood or gore in this movie. Every element of horror is purely psychological, and done very well, might I add. Bette Davis is a sort of surprise character and she is fantastic.
Everything about this story sets the tone for all of the atmospheric visuals you’ll see throughout.
If you can unearth this movie somehow (as it can be extremely hard to find) I highly recommend watching this version.
It was actually the man I love that came up with that title. So credit to him this time around. After all, he knows me better than most. I’m working on changing that. Perhaps this is the first step. Today I’m opening up a bit more, and telling you all the story of Daydreams, the only way I know how.
Face to face.
I had to look some of you in the eyes when I told you that she is somewhat a figment of mine and your imagination.
Now by me saying this, I am not simply tossing out anything I ever told you as falsehood.
No, that is far from the truth.
The truth is, I wanted to be able to share the better parts of me without my bitter or broken parts dragging you down.
She is merely my internet persona – or better yet, my writing voice. When I speak to you as I’m speaking now, I am largely being myself, but I am in-character. You can tell the difference between me (J, that’s as much as I can tell you about my name for now. You’ll see me credited in some places as J.W or J. Weston.) and Daydreams by how we speak. Daydreams is bubbly and fun, and well, I am real; flawed. You can find it in these videos sometimes stumbling or being my dorky, awkward self.
I’m sure you will have many questions. I’ll answer them all to the best of my ability.
You can save them for the Q&As we’ll be doing next week. 😉
I am both pleased and honored to present to you today, the cover for an outstanding recently released book by two authors who have homes in the blogosphere.
This project has been my baby for some time, while being juggled with some other wonderful things that have already come to fruition. So when Mattapproached me with some ideas, I couldn’t help but take this on. Sci-Fi is a genre that certainly gets imagination whirling. Together these two authors wrote a beautiful story, that managed to flow so nicely, to where you couldn’t even tell when the writer had changed.
I’m still ecstatic that they asked lil’ ol’ me to do the cover art for this book.
Without further delay, I present to you, the fresh cover of The Erratic Sun.
