The only SURE way for me to follow you back is if you leave a comment. However, if your Blog has a black background and white writing then it makes my eyes squiffy...

Childhood Monster Blogfest

Hosted by Christine Rains
Her paranormal romance novella, FEARLESS, will be released on August 7th. To help promote it, she wanted to do something fun. One of her favorite parts of writing the story was creating monsters spawned from children's imaginations. Some of them are silly, but there's no rhyme or reason to a child's fears.

She'll be hosting a blogfest from August 7th to the 9th. You can post on any one of those three days. For this blogfest, all you need to do is write about your childhood monster. Did you have a beast living under your bed? Or was the scary clown in your closet?

Yes I had a recurring and utterly terrifying nightmare, which comprised of someone with a triangular paper-bag-shaped face, though I think it was like a cloth sack actually, appearing at the window at night with just two dark holes for eyes and a small, dark rectangle for a mouth.
I don't recall seeing this monster in real life, but I think it was inspired by the Cybermen from BBC's Doctor Who (and it occurs to me, scary movies about the Ku Klux Klan).

Have any of you come across this brilliant book The Monster Bed by Jeanne Willis, Susan Varley & Jeanne Varley?
