California Deathrock Book Kickstarter
http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ameliag/california-deathrock-book

The really big news is that a book of Forrest Black and Amelia G’s deathrock portraiture is going to be published. There are four days left in the Kickstarter pledge period and the project has already succeeded and will definitely be funded. Pledge now and Amazon won’t charge for the California Deathrock book until the pledge period is complete.

Forrest and Amelia will also thank you in print in the book, if you pledge now. Please note that, once the book is published, it should be available via Amazon and Barnes & Noble, but the retail price is expected to be significantly higher than the Kickstarter price. Cool people who Forrest and Amelia have photographed will probably be able to get the book for wholesale pricing later, but that will be around the Kickstarter amount and without the mention in the book dedication. And it would be ever so helpful and awesome if you could get those pledges in now to make sure the book is a hardcover and has the best possible art book paper and most possible pages.

Roche, Clint Catalyst, Maria Alexander, Poppy Z. Brite, Richard Matheson, Ramsey Campbell, and many more luminaries of the dark writing world.

Happy New Year and a Fabulous Forthcoming 2012
http://twitter.com/BlueBlood
http://www.blueblood.com/news/
Blue Blood has so much going on that it is a good idea to follow the Blue Blood Twitter for up-to-the-minute info. In 2012, Blue Blood has a bunch of cool party sponsorships coming up, some very exciting print projects, and the launch of Blue Blood Fleshlights kicking off with the lovely lady parts of Nicotine and Misti Dawn. As we both gear up for the future and reflect on this past year, here are some of the highlights of 2011:

BlueBlood.net Re-Design
http://www.blueblood.net/
You have probably noticed that BlueBlood.net got a spiffy new look in 2011. There are lots of new articles and new conversations. Music videos, cool style, and pop culture deconstructions. Come say hello and participate in intelligent counterculture debate and hotness :-)

2011 APN Awards Nominations and Wins
Blue Blood received a flattering number of nominations and took home half a dozen wins from the APN Awards, including Best Gothic Update for Razor Candi/GothicSluts, Best Nerd Update for Nicotine/EroticFandom, Best Site Re-Design for Forrest Black/GothicSluts, and Best Alternative Photography for Amelia G and Forrest Black. The sites received a number of other nominations for various awards over the course of the year, but it felt extra-good to be recognized in such important wins from awards run by people who really get it. The Blue Blood crew is looking forward to the 2012 awards.

Hustler Interviews Amelia G and Nicotine
http://www.blueblood.com/news/2011/12/what-is-steampunk/
Hustler magazine ran an interview with Amelia G and Nicotine in a feature on steampunk. “What the Heck is Steampunk?” was also illustrated with photography by Amelia G and Forrest Black. This is in the February issue, on newsstands now.

Gothic.net Panel of Experts
http://www.gothic.net/tag/panel-of-experts/
Gothic.net began running a series of features with a Panel of Experts interviewed on various horror and gothic-related topics. Blue Blood notables on the Panel include Amelia G, John Shirley, Will Judy, Forrest Black, Cecilia Tan, Thomas S. Roche, Ed Mironiuk, Eric Swartz, and Chad Savage.

Gothic.net Re-Design Red Carpet Event
http://www.gothic.net/gothic-net-party-red-carpet-pic/
Blue Blood sponsored the red carpet event for Gothic.net’s celebration of its dark new design. Blue Blood notables in attendance included Amelia G, Forrest Black, Carlos Batts, April Flores, Diana Knight, and Daniel Ian Essex of the Astrovamps.

Marquis #51
http://www.blueblood.com/news/2011/06/marquis-51-alecia-joy-contortionist/
Marquis #51 hit German newsstands. For this issue, Amelia G and Forrest Black did their Big in America column on the exceedingly flexible Alecia Joy. This makes more than thirty issues in a row of Marquis, the highest circulation glossy fetish magazine in the world, which have featured work by Blue Blood’s Amelia G and Forrest Black.

All Access Pass Call for Submissions

Editrix Amelia G is looking for a pansexual orientation and (ironically perhaps) is still reading for a few more hetero boy/girl stories for this sequel to the critically-acclaimed Backstage Passes.

Picture and Premium magazines
Picture and Premium magazines have been running an extensive series of spreads highlighting BlueBlood.com in their glossy international pages. The Blue Blood crew has not seen the magazines yet, but have been told the layouts look very nice.

Gothic.net Panel of Experts – BDSM in Horror (SFW)

Gothic.net Panel of Experts – BDSM in Horror
Posted by Amelia G

bdsm in horror

Gothic.net has posted a new installment of the Panel of Experts and the current question is: Does a storyline seem more or less frightening to you, when BDSM themes are included, such as those in Hellraiser or Ichi the Killer? Besides yours truly, some other Blue Blood notables on the Panel include John Shirley, Will Judy, Forrest Black, Cecilia Tan, Thomas S. Roche, Ed Mironiuk, Eric Swartz, and Chad Savage.

For me, the relatability and familiarity of some of the BDSM aspect . . .
