Hey everyone — just a short note to remind my faithful blog followers and web visitors that all the action is now at the new version of As You Were. Soon I’ll be turning out the lights here for good.
What have you been missing? Well, in addition to all the full posts and comments from this embryonic version of As You Were, there are new stories in Werewolf Wednesday and Thunder God Thursday. There are also regular new reviews on Metal Monday and Feature Friday. Besides all that, this summer I joined a cadre of other bloggers to look at the works of J.R.R. Tolkien in Puttin’ the Blog in Balrog. Plus, the new site is [humility mode off] organized better, has some new features and looks nicer.
So click on over! If you like what you see, please take a second to follow the new blog. I can’t import blog followers from the old version of my site, but fortunately you can easily subscribe to the new one. I’ve put the “Follow this Blog” widget right up near the top. If you’ve been with me this far I’d love to have you along for the ride as we head into winter — I’ll be posting regularly and don’t want you to miss anything.
Thanks again for following and/or stopping by! It’s been great to have you and I hope to see you at the new site.
Hoo boy, it’s going to be a busy week here at As You Were. We will of course be celebrating Werewolf Wednesday on said day, but we have another guest post coming up, this time courtesy of prolific horror writer and editor (and metal fan) Armand Rosamilia.
Don’t worry, you can have your say, too! I’ll be posting my first-ever poll on Wednesday, so you can weigh in and vote (and, if I’ve done it correctly, add your own favourite) for the best werewolf song.
Despite what you might think, I was able to pull together a list BEYOND Ozzy’s “Bark At the Moon” — and turned up some selections that may surprise you.
Then, without even blinking, Thursday will feature Armand’s guest post as part of his Dying Days zombie blog tour. But since he knows of As You Were’s affinity for the heavier side of music, he’ll be devoting his post to the known and lesser-known hard-working women in metal, which is the subject of another of his book series, Metal Queens. Not enough, you say? Well Armand will also be giving away two ebook volumes of Metal Queens as part of the post — making this the first giveaway ever on As You Were. It’s a week of firsts!
So: don’t forget to stop back on Wednesday for some great (and diverse) lycanthropic music, and then return Thursday for some metal madness. Metal horns: \m/
