Trashy Paperback Tuesday: Dire Happenings!

By Kerry

I decided that it was time for a scary, trashy read. The scariest thing about this one? The editing.

The Elevator Pitch: “Charming” jerkwad tries […] Read more…

1960s Buffets: Laying it all out on the table

Glenn’s Retro Comics Review: Exorcist Ripoffs!

By Glenn

My newest contribution to CFR (that’s what we call Candyfloss Ramparts here at home) gives me an excuse to talk about two things at once: my love of classic comics, and my utter fear of the film “The Exorcist.” How can these two things possibly be related?

Comics are for READING! Then Why Seal Them in Plastic Slabs?

I did actually complete a WIP this week, but it is in route to its destination – so I can’t share it yet. I am slowly working up the nerve to tackle those quilt blocks, and hope to have some actual work in progress this week. …so, I thought I would hop in the ol’ […] Read more…
