Horror Tree Update: Summertime, And The Reading Is Easy… In July!

What’s New In July!


I haven’t posted about it yet but will when we have at least a second style in the mix. However, we’ve launched our first set of products branded with the Horror Tree logo that you can check out at Red Bubble!

The Menu!

Made a couple of changes to our Menu for computer & mobile! The Trembling With Fear options to read or submit were combined, & some groupings have been swapped. Both Type & Pay were moved higher in the menu so the drop-down would work better.


GDPR Complience

We’ve updated our Privacy Policy and everything else we can to become GDPR compliant. Nothing fun there, just something that needs to be stated.

A happy July 4th to our US readers and to those outside of the US, please enjoy the fireworks above! Okay, not quite as fun as the real thing I know. I’m going to be keeping this one a bit short and sweet again as my family has quite a bit planned for the first week of this month and I’m trying to get this post as well as a slew of other things prepped in advance for the festivities!

What Is New At The Horror Tree?!

Our interviews this month were with KT Wagner, Marc Shapiro, and T.J.Tranchell.
We were a ‘Scouse Gothic’ Blog Tour stop with the history of Liverpool!
Also we explored the first part of “How Do I Get An Agent Anyway?
Finally, we also released a video refresh of “Rejection – The Ugly Word
For those with writer’s block, we have a brief distraction for you with The Horror Tree Game!

What Is About To Grow At The Horror Tree?

A good friend of mine is joining Horror Tree’s review staff this month and I can’t wait to see what he puts together! Official welcomes after it happens.
We’re SO close to having everyone signed off for inclusion in our collection of work from 2017. I’m hoping to have it all set in the next week for our first printing.
No other big announcements are set for the upcoming month as we’re looking to expand on the current new features before announcing the next set!

A Brief Update!

Once again, we’re trying to share how the Horror Tree is growing socially. One of these days I will figure out exactly how to really grow these avenues and if you have any suggestions please be sure to reach out!

  • Horror Tree’s Twitter – Moved from 6646 to 6685 followers. Not huge growth but up from last month. Welcome new fans from the blue bird!
  • Horror Tree’s Facebook – Minor bump in readers here. We had 1734 and went up to 1756! Again, not a huge bump but we’ve always had mixed results with Facebook
  • Horror Tree’s Instagram – 223 people were checking out our author quotes before and that’s grown to 262! We need more time in the day to develop content for our social image sharing sites!
  • Horror Tree’s Pinterest – No chane here, a ton of views but not much in the ways of follows. I fail at Pinterest.
  • Horror Tree’s YouTube has gone from 18 subscribers to 22! Not a lot of following action but on Twitter and elsewhere we’ve gotten some great responses from our few video roundups so far. I’m going to try to up this to one a week hopefully by the end of the month. (I type as I am likely missing a video in the first week of July.)

As always, I hope we’re helping you out and we’d love to see your comments with any suggestions or thoughts on what we’re doing! Thanks for being a reader!
