Give a horror cliche and see what happens.
Want to become part of my next parody?
I had so much fun writing Plundering the Romance Novel. Really, it was great. I made a list of the things that authors do in romances that drive me completely mad, and built the story around those.
Now it is horror’s turn in the hotseat. You can think horror movie or horror novel or a combination of both.
Here’s the deal. I’ve got a list of horror clichés going already, but I want to involve you. Give me your worst horror clichés, and if I use one of them in the book, I will name a character after the person who submitted it. Who doesn’t want to be immortalised in a terrible horror parody? First names only, I promise.
Bring it on, folks.
The book is called “Saturday the 14th.”
Apparently, Friday the 13th is bad luck.
