""Beneath the pressure of torments such as these, the feeble remnant of the good within me succumbed. Evil thoughts became my sole intimates-the darkest and most evil of thoughts.""

Dear Diary – Monday, July 25, 2011

Ever since last week when I took time to self-reflect I've been feeling a little lighter in my paw stepping... 

So over the week-end during one of my sixteen hour cat naps I did a little more reflecting and in my superior feline wisdom I believe it to be essential to my overall being. After all, keeping up the ferocious image of a cat vamp can play havoc on the heart, not to mention the wear and tear on my fangs!     

Last week I had fun talking about a special lady, author Carole Gill (click here) and all the hard work she puts into her gothic tales; this week is going to be just as pawsome for I’m spotlighting another author who has been so supportive of my feline adventures, published author, Blaze McRob.

Blaze McRob and T.K. Millin crossed paths after she met Carole and I’m glad they did. Because Blaze writes really pawsome stories that are all things scary. Blaze and I hit it off right from the beginning not because I’m irresistible, charming and happen to  be the best looking cat vamp around, but because we have something in common . . . Blaze McRob once was a ghost writer too!

Not only is Blaze busy with writing his own stories for publication and for Flash Fiction Friday and his weekly Terror Tuesday Tales at The Graveyard Group on Facebook, but he also maintains two blogs and always seems to have a little time left over to be so supportive of other writer’s and their work. If that doesn’t want to make you sleep like a cat vamp, Blaze and his better looking half, Yvonne Bishop, recently launched Angelic Knight Press

Upon Angelic Knight Press’ grand opening they announced a very exciting opportunity for authors who love to write all things scary. Starting August 1, 2011 they are accepting submissions for an anthology titled, Satan's Toy Box: Demonic Dolls (click here for details), which will be published this coming October. Just in time for Halloween, my favorite time of the year!  

Who doesn't love Halloween?

Before I end another chapter in my diary I wanted to show that just because I’m a cat vamp doesn’t mean I’m aloof like legend has it. I would like to thank Blaze McRob for his service to this country and I’m glad he came home from Vietnam and discovered who he was meant to become. Blaze McRob, author of all things scary. 

Here are links to where you can find Blaze McRob, and I know you won’t be disappointed. Trust me, I'm Efi Loo, The Cat Vamp.   

Fangfully yours, 

Efi Loo
The Cat Vamp


  1. Wow! I am very humbled to be held in such high esteem by Efi Loo, my very favorite cat vamp. I do what I can to create interesting stories that are different, tell a message, and vary from tale to tale. Just because we write horror doesn't mean we are all blood and guts. And familiarity breeds mediocrity.

    Thank you again for the very kind words, Efi Loo and T.K.


  2. You are most welcome. You are right about familiarity breed mediocrity. The collection of authors connected through Masters of Horror and The Graveyard Group are always raising the bar and pushing us to grow in our creativity and writing.

    Thank you for stopping by and leaving another BLAZING comment!

  3. Yay Blaze and yay Efi Loo! You're both pawesome in my mind!


  4. Thanks Stacey :) and thanks for stopping by to visit. Efi Loo gets lonely!
