We are the Night?

Oh sweet gentle baby internet,

I'm in Maryland for Christmas to visit my family, and tomorrow I'm responsible for picking out a Christmas tree. We used to get monster trees when I was little, but I think we might be moving on to the Charlie Brown Christmas sized tree. That and my sister got a brand new adorable pug puppy, and we don't want him to eat tons of pine needles. She named her puppy Manolo after the Scarface character, so James is now calling him "chingy puff daddy chamillionare" Awesome.

The pages above are for a personal project I'm working on. I don't have access to a scanner or else I would post more pages from it. I'm thinking of calling it "We are the Night" but I'm not sure if the title is appropriate or catchy enough. The subject matter of the book is pretty generic ghouls, ghosts, witches and demons etc. Those things have always been something of an obsession of mine. I've had many days dedicated to scouring the internet/library for ghoulish books and documentaries. Although I did draw the line at the discovery channel real vampire documentary. Too many vampire cult goth raves not enough wicked evil Elizabeth Bathory.

Anyway I hope that everybody has a happy fun holiday filled with merry times! Maybe even some spiked eggnog! If I get my hands on a camera I'll post a picture of the tree when its all set up and what not.
