Today I have a treat for everyone. My brand new, fully updated Horror presentation which I will be presenting live for PCI. This presentation have just received a huge overhaul. I even tested out a draft version of it at StokerCon last week.
If you are not signed up to participate, don’t fret, PCI also makes the recordings available for you to purchase for your staff to watch on demand. You can click here for all of the details. For an individual they are not cheap, but it is a VERY good deal for your library or even your library system to buy a multiple login viewing option.
And, since it is only 6 months until Halloween, now is the time to start preparing your collections for the onslaught of horror hungry readers. You need to arm yourself with the knowledge on why people want a scary read AND get the details on the authors you should be adding to your collections.
Click here to access the slides.
I have also created this handout for participants which includes links from the presentation and a few brand new extras.
Today, over on the horror blog, I have also posted about this presentation but have included more information for those of you who want to do a little more digging-- some level 2 ghost hunting.
But for most horror newbies, the links in this post will serve you well right now and into the haunting season.
Remember, your horror patrons aren’t monsters, they just like to read about them.
