**How you got into horror, horror writing, horror crafting, horror art, or dark music.
**What your favorite horror movie is and why. (Or band, author, book, location, event, subject, etc.)
**A horror icon (Elvira, the boogieman, Addams Family, etc...) or subject (hearses, haunted churches, etc...) and how this subject shaped or changed your life.
**What frightens you, a reoccurring nightmare you have, or a ghost experience.
**Horror occupations or an interview with a professional horror addict.
**Some other off-the-wall topic that still relates to horror and the macabre in some way.
**A review of a band, author, book, location, event, subject, etc.
NOTE: This blog post should not be an advertisement for you or your work. You can list your achievements in your bio below. If a book or music review, you can not be connected with the production of it. If it is a borderline topic such as how you got into making scary dolls and why with links to the products you sell, email before to ask if it suits. Guest blogging is a one time shot, no strings attached. However, you can do it more than once if you like. Try not to make your topics time sensitive (like a movie coming out the following weekend or an event that may pass before the article is posted). If you are interested in being a more full time HA blogger, just let us know. We always accept new ideas and new blood.

To submit a Guest Blog Post, email:
*The post (700-1500 words in the body of the email)
*A photo of yourself (attach jpg or png)
*(if applicable) A photo of the subject (attach jpg or png)
*Your name:
*Your email address:
*Website URL:
*Short bio (100 words or less)
By submitting this article to Horror Addicts, you guarantee that it is of your own creation and free from restrictions.
