Letter from TUBS to The Ink Babes

Dear Ink Babes,               
 
Please be advised that I represent The Union of Beings Supernatural, otherwise known in our realm as TUBS. We wish to advise you that although we don’t mind you writing about us, we would like to make the following demands since you are including many of us in your stories and works of writing. Specific requests are detailed below from our prestigious members, and union heads.
 

1.       The Devil would like a soul mate in exchange for all the stories written about him, he never receives any compensation,  and it’s  long overdue.  

He saw Tammy’s picture, and said he would ensure she enjoys hot temperatures and a comfortable leadership position as his wife. He’s already drafted a contract for her soul and said to tell her to bring coins for the ferryman.

 

2.       Dracula speaks for all vampires and he is asking for access to a blood bank. Seems he’s asked all vampires to stay low-key these days, especially the sparkly ones. A blood bank would alleviate those mysterious ‘drained of blood’ deaths the cops have to keep finding new excuses for. If a blood bank is not something you can provide, he is willing to accept Pat into his seethe. He promises to grant her immortality and many years filled with an exciting nightlife.

 

3.       Lycaon, head of the werewolf line, would like a mate since he lost his in a rather gruesome battle. After seeing Lisa’s picture on Bleeding Ink, he wants her to become his wolf-mate for life.

Of course she would have to become a werewolf. He promises plenty of red meat, lots of exercise, and nights of baying under a romantic full moon with him.

 

4.       Our witch coven has cast a love spell on you babes. They love the dark images and posts you’ve created, and are thrilled you’ve given them the credit they deserve for so many wicked little stories. They’ve decided that romantic unions with heads of the union would be perfect and they’re even willing to become your wedding planners.

Gruesomely yours,
Frankenstein, CEO/TUBS
 
 

We at Bleeding Ink love a little humour in our lives. We love the dark, the twisted, the occult, supernatural, haunting, and any story that gives the reader something to think about long after he or she has read it. If you have a dark tale to tell, send it to us. We’d love to read them, and possibly include them in our anthology.

Our deadline is March 31, 2012, so submit your polished work to us.

 

Ever Yours,

The Ink Babes

Bleeding Ink Post #1

We here at The Ink Babes are almost ready to roll this puppy out. It has taken much thought and research to prepare for this little darkling of ours but we undertook the project knowing exactly what we wanted to accomplish with it. We believe that what we’ve done here is provide a setting for ourselves and other writers to showcase some wonderfully dark and thought provoking stories, and we also hope that this is the first of many projects to come.

Yes, we write for ourselves, because we love it, but we also write to share our ideas and our creative thoughts, characters, plots and fantasies with others who enjoy reading these types of stories and poems.

Supernatural, witches, werewolves, vampires, ghosts, necromancers, fairies, death, blood, gore, goth, creatures, apocalypse, and anything else with dark undertones are welcome here.

Our pages aren’t filled with romance or sex, but stories hell bent on making the reader think about what is possible outside of the real world.

As Tammy would say, combining all our thoughts and ideas was like creating a winning hockey team, lots of hard work and plenty of sweat. Pat would say, it was like designing a dress, plan, cut, put it together, cut some more, then finish it off. Lisa would say, it ended up coming together like a well rehearsed song. And then we all said, lets send it out into the world and see what kind of magic happens. 🙂

We hope to share our thoughts with you now and then about this project and its progress so be sure to ‘follow’ us. We’re working on some wonderful marketing concepts, giveaways, and teasers too!

We hope you’ll share our enthusiasm for this anthology as we look forward to producing something for you that is unique and impactful to readers everywhere.

Ever yours,

InkBabes

Lisa, Pat, and Tammy
