The first month of the year,
A perfect time to start all over again,
Changing energies and deserting old moods,
New beginnings, new attitudes
Happy New Year Everyone!
This post is going to serve as a multi-post to wish you all a Happy New Year and January while saying goodbye to both 2018 and December.
Out with the (c)old and in with the new! Of course, we all know that in most areas that are living in cold weather during these months that the worst is likely still to come.
At any rate, let’s take a look at where we’re at as 2019 blossoms!
What Is New At The Horror Tree?!
In the NICK OF TIME we were able to get the Horror Tree Store up and running! That was one of last month’s goals checked off!
Articles: 10 Awesome Gifts For Authors – 2018 Edition
Book Reviews: Across Dimensions
Video Refresh: Lee Battersby Interview, The Waiting Game, Am I A Real Writer?
Interviews: Dan Weatherer, Angela Y. Smith, Eric J. Guignard, Gwendolyn Kiste, Patrick Freivald, Steve Stred, Noel Osualdini
What Is About To Grow At The Horror Tree?
Thanks to Steph, we’re already reviewing getting the Trembling With Fear 2018 editions out. Yes, that was editions as we’re going to slightly split it up thanks to an increase in holiday-themed releases this year.
On top of that, I’m still hoping to get the chatbot I mentioned last month in place but with how far behind I am on things I can’t make any promises.

A Brief Social Update!
Once again, we’re trying to share how the Horror Tree is growing socially. I need to keep a focus on this as it is hard to find ways to grow our social media and keeping track shows how many authors and readers we’re able to reach!
- Horror Tree’s Twitter – We’ve gone from 6755 to 6785 followers
- Horror Tree’s Facebook –Has seen a change from 1866 to 1906 likes! I’m thrilled to welcome all of our new followers here!
- Horror Tree’s Instagram – I thought last month’s follower count was a fluke and we’ve apparently gotten hit by some algorithhm bump putting our posts front and center in front of a larger audience as we’ve had a ton of new followers here clocking in a a little over 28k who now check us out on The Gram. That’s what the cool kids call it these days, right? RIGHT?!
- Horror Tree’s Pinterest – has gone up to… Hah… 16 followers. We’re getting pinned a ton more but those who like our author quotes don’t seem to like our account.
- Horror Tree’s YouTube subscribers have changed from 37 to 40! I’m still not sure how much time we can put into this outlet currently. We really need to find someone willing to do video and/or a podcast for us.
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!
Also, if you’re in need of a bit of a break, don’t forget to play The Horror Tree Game!
