Dirty Pillows and Buckets of Blood - Book Launch !

After much hand wringing and anxiety – the book finally arrived and was launched successfully last Thursday evening with a small gathering and celebration. The Maltings Arts Theatre, St Albans played host to a gathering of queer-horror enthusiasts and forced family and friends. 

The evening was a fun mix of wine, nibbles, cake decorated with buckets/raspberry sauce and tiaras, a prom area encouraged attendees to take Polaroids of themselves as Prom Queens or Kings. The evening was rounded off with a fabulous screening of Carrie (1976) in its 40th Anniversary year, complete with creases on the fold-up temporary screen and weak attempts at camp audience interaction.


Don’t forget the book is on sale now:
