Hola! I had fun answering some interesting questions for Willow Croft’s blog. Want to know what I think of UFOs, aliens, ghost sightings, and angel numbers? Then check out my author interview. You might call me quirky, you might call me crazy, you might call me eccentric. I just call myself–me. Life is boring when you’re normal haha.

Book Review: Cirque Berserk by Jessica Guess

I was honored when Divination Hollow Reviews asked me to be a guest blogger for their Women In Horror and Black History In Horror event. Battling covid at the time, their request had given me something to look forward to. Since I haven’t written anything creepy in awhile (because I’ve been working on my graphic novel and spiritual blog), I didn’t want to share any short stories. I thought the safest bet would be to write a book review on a fun horror book.

I ended up finding Jessica Guess’s Cirque Berserk.

Urban Legends Getting International Love! Plus, My Personal Guest Post On #BlackLivesMatters!

Sorry, I haven’t been blogging lately. I feel like I’m off and on, which can be a good thing. It means I’m working hard on my writing/art projects. Since it’s October–Spooky Season (woo hoo!!!)–I plan on blogging more to celebrate the countdown to my favorite holiday, Halloween.

I want to thank Deborah J Miles for giving my newest release, Urban Legends, a chance. It’s always cool to see my sales dashboard go international 🙂 Right now, I have readers in the US, UK, Denmark, Australia, and Canada. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Not only did Deborah J Miles give my book a review, she also let me share a personal experience of racism I dealt with at work years ago. It took a lot for me to be vulnerable sharing this…If you want to check out my guest post and check out her book review on Against the Flow Press blog, then please click on the link– Book Review: Urban Legends by Yawatta Hosby

Urban Legends - High Resolution

She was nice enough to let me post an excerpt of Urban Legends; plus, my author bio is in the Black Voices Matter section of the website. I’m so excited and very grateful. I can’t believe my shy-self is getting my name out there.

I’m one of those annoying people that celebrate their birthday for the whole month. Hey, at least I’m self-aware lol. When Linda D. Addison approached me to be featured in the Horror Writers Association for The Seers’ Table July 2020 edition, I jumped at the opportunity! A good start to my birthday 🙂

I want to thank Linda D. Addison, and I also give a big thank you to Ed Hoornaert. Please check out the link to see me and other talented authors: The Seers’ Table July 2020.

I haven’t blogged in quite some time because I’ve been depressed about the ugliness in the world. Even though I haven’t written any blog posts, I stayed pretty active on Twitter and Facebook about the injustices in the world. And I’ve been pretty vocal in supporting the Black Lives Matter movement.

I want to thank Stephanie Evelyn for asking me to do an interview. Usually I try and keep everything bottled in–fighting my struggles, fighting my anxiety, fighting my depression alone. But no more silence. It took a lot for me to be vulnerable during my interview like this; however, the experience will make me a stronger person.

I found Mrs. Average Evaluates on Twitter looking for people to interview for her ‘Writer of the Week’ blog series. Not passing up the opportunity, I contacted her. Please check out her awesome blog.She writes book reviews and gives author interviews. I’m blessed to be getting a lot of support from the UK. I could always picture myself moving to Canada, but maybe I need to relocate to the UK 🙂  I can see myself in London, Dublin, or in a small village in Italy.

How Urban Legends Shaped My Newest Horror Story #WIHM

images

I had fun writing my horror novella, Urban Legends (working title). A serial killer terrorizes a group of college students with urban legends, killing them one by one. In honor of Women In Horror Month, I was a guest on Priscilla Bettis’s blog–The making of a horror novelist. If you would like to see the nine urban legends that inspired my horror scenes, then please click on the link: Guest Post: How Urban Legends Shaped My Newest Story by Yawatta Hosby.

What’s your favorite urban legend? Mine is Bloody Mary. To this day, I refuse to say her name five times while looking in a mirror. No siree.
