Our Bloody Valentines: Love Notes from the Tuesday Mayhem Society

Thursday, July 28 - 7:00pm - 8:00pm
Location: Peaks Island Branch
Audience: Adults

Erosion begins with “Eros”, he thought wickedly.  Love falls apart.  And how can I NOT be enamored with her as her corpse comes undone?  Even in death her beauty remains.Chews

Valentine’s Day is traditionally a day for lovers to re-ignite their passion and celebrate the bonds of love and commitment.  But beyond the cards and flowers and candy lies something dark and sinister.  After all, love has secrets, passion has regrets, and “Till death do us part,” can seem like an invitation.


We cordially invite you to celebrate Our Bloody Valentines – Love Notes from the Tuesday Mayhem Society.  On Saturday, February 14th, we will be exploring the concepts of Love, Sex, and Murder through our fiction and poetry at the Portland Public Library.  Join us for an afternoon of frightfully good tales that will add chills to your Holiday of otherwise Hot Romance.  Admission is free, and the authors will have copies of their books on hand for both sales and giveaways.

The Tuesday Mayhem Society is a group of local authors centered in Lisbon Falls, who are dedicated to carrying on the literary traditions of Poe, Lovecraft, Bradbury, and King.  Each member works hard to perfect their craft of writing, meeting weekly to read their works aloud as well as offer constructive criticism for their fellow members.  You can learn about the authors and follow the Society by following us on Facebook.

The Tuesday Mayhem Society is:
Glenn Rolfe – author of THE HAUNTED HALLS, ABRAM’S BRIDGE, and the collection SLUSH
April Hawks – author of “Slippery Love” (in the anthology BLEED), “Organically Grown” (in the anthology BUGS), and “Enter Sandman” (in the upcoming anthology AXES OF EVIL 2)
Morgan Sylvia – author of WHISPERS FROM THE APOCALYPSE
Peter N. Dudar – author of A REQUIEM FOR DEAD FLIES, THE ANGEL OF DEATH, BLOOD CULT, and DOLLY and Other Stories
