My story - "Ripped Pants" - has been choosen for the new book "Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Magic of Mothers and Daughters." I am so excited!!

The book is available for pre-order on Amazon - the book will be released March 13, 2012!

This is a story about a lesson I learned from my wonderful daughter, Christine, when she wore a pair of ripped pants to school one day. Thanks so much to Christine for the inspiration to write something that will now be published in a mainstream book!

Etsy Store

I just opened an Etsy store to sale my chapbooks, so this is another area I am exploring. I only have a photo of the cover of Care and Feeding of Nightmares, so this is the only book I have listed. Hopefully I can get the rest of the covers scanned and add them because I need to add them to the website.

And don't forget to check out my website, Bobbi Dawn Rightmyer

American Horror Story

I have a tendency to become hooked on certain television series, but ususally it takes a few episodes to hook me and then slowly reel me in.

Last night my hubby and I finally got to watch the pilot of American Horror on FX and I was sucked in from the opening scene. This show is going to be go unbelievably cool, I can't wait for the next show. It's creepy, psychologically haunting and downright scary. There have been many other attempts at shows like this, but FX has perfected the formula for the perfect horror show for the small screen.

For an excellent summation of the first episode, Crave On Line does a great job. I don't know much about ratings, but I do know what I like, and this show had it all. There was the "I see dead people" Down's Syndrome girl in the first episode - check. The creepy twin, red-headed wrecking balls - check. A house with a like of its on - check. Body parts and other gross things stored away in glass jars in the basement - check. Oh, and did I mention the maid? To the wife she looks like a sweet old lady, to the husband she is seen as a seductress - way creepy - check. The whole premise of the show is creepy and I love creepy. I don't like in your face blood and gore horror, but this type of psychological horror is right up my alley.
