A Wicked and Wanton All Hallows Eve With Kiki Howell

Witch and Ghosts and Things That Go Bump In The Night *winks*

In my short, Midnight Showing, in the Naughty Nights Press Wicked and Wanton All Hallows Eve anthology, I have a witch trying to help a ghost cross-over.  This idea was inspired by a real life place, a haunted theatre in my town. The legend tells of a woman who killed herself in the theatre after seeing the man she loved with another woman. Rumor has it they can’t play scary movies in theatre two or the ghost messes with the working of the equipment. They have supposedly even had the film reel (when they still used them) catch fire. That was all I needed to hear…
But in writing this erotic horror  story, it got me to thinking about sex in horror movies. It used to be, ah back in the day, that most of them had a sex scene in them. I wondered why. Then I remembered that an author friend of mine did some research a while back on the connection between fear and sex. So, she lent me her post to read about a few of the theories she found. The first one her post spoke of about was this: the sex scenes are added so that when  a guy and a girl go on a date to see a scary movie, the boobs in the movie get the guy going and the scary stuff puts the girl in the guys arms, so to speak *winks* So, we are to believe the movie makers had this helpful intention for couples? Funny though, I’d actually heard that one before, so who knows, maybe there is some truth to it. But, as my friend said, I’d love to get into the mind of the first person to write a scary movie who decided to put sex in it and find out why he (okay or she) did it.

Further research (this my friend had links to, yeah) just got more interesting... check out this site[nsfw]  or this one I found the posts, well as my friend said in her original post, amusing, not a turn on, and some were downright gross. I did appreciate the comments though. Maybe some of the directors do need to see a psychologist. What I did get from this though was the desire to watch a horror flick or read a horror story curled up on my hubbies lap, then … well you know the then. .. *winks* Of course, the genres of horror and erotica in books is much, much, MUCH sexier, at least to me, but then this isn’t a debate about girls being emotional and men being visual.

So, since I proved nothing other than reaffirm that I do enjoy the mix of horror and erotica, let’s move onto information about the anthology.

Kiki Howell - A Midnight Showing

Two nights before the Halloween opening of her husband's theater, Meredith along with the help of her husband and his best friend slash investor, try to rid the theater of a ghost who made trouble for them when restoring the place. The female spirit, it is rumored, killed herself in the projection room back in the sixties after catching her fiancée at the movies with another woman.
The lonely ghost has other plans for their evening. As the scary movie goes crazy and popcorn goes flying through the air, the lustful spirit coerces man and woman and man into some compromising positions while joining them in the fun.

Ana Hart - Welcome To The Inferno

Welcome to Club Inferno where the wicked come to play only one night out of the year –Halloween. It is the only night when those creatures of myth and darkness can mingle in the open, put on a new face, be a new person, and have a little bit of fun.
Domniar and Laria are no different from all the rest. Two wild Fae directly from the realm of Faerie, this saucy couple have donned their new ‘glamours’ for the evening and are ready for a little wicked passion, a bit of exhibitionism, and a whole lot of shameless lust. Just remember, there is only one rule in Club Inferno: Thou shalt do no harm to another within the walls of the Inferno. Unless they ask for it.

BL Morticia - I Dream Of Dalian

Abby Hayes - Haunted Party

Alexa is going to her first ever Halloween Bash thrown each year by her new boss, a sexy skeptic who every guy wants to be his friend and every woman wants to screw.
But, she is more professional than that.
One poltergeist and one strange revelation later though, locked in a room with her boss and two male co-workers, fear turns to competition just like it always does in the board room. Alexa, Derrick, Ken and James, with battle wounds and all, fight for their lives in the sexiest way ever conceived. Once their sex games begin, this bitch of a ghost may never know what hit her.

Gemma Parkes - Cassandra

Mia has no desire to go to the Halloween party being hosted by friends of her boyfriend. Reluctantly she tries to find a costume to wear by visiting a fancy dress shop. One outfit in particular has a startling affect on her and she is compelled to hire it. It also seems to have an amazing affect on her partner and it is some time before they are able to set off for the party.

Once there, Mia finds herself in the company of Cassandra, a beautiful, hypnotic girl dressed up as a witch’s cat. She is captivated by Cassandra’s mesmerizing bright green eyes and falls under her spell. Mia finds herself engaged in an intense ménage a trios that brings her both exquisite pleasure and frightening confusion.

Charlotte is a normal girl, getting ready for a night out on the town with her girls. She dons her Halloween costume and hops into a taxi. After a miscommunication about the address of the club, she finds herself unwittingly on the upper, private floor of a BDSM club.

A voice over her shoulder gets –and keeps– her attention. When he tells her to call him Sir, she’s only too happy to comply. Sir helps Charlotte break down a few of her barriers and teaches her the basics of mental domination. Sir forcesCharlotte to tell him what she sees, in graphic language that good girls are taught not to use. She discovers that BDSM isn’t as scary as she always thought.
Their encounter ends in a dark hallway with her skirt around her waist and his cock buried inside her. Afterward, Sir is only too happy to take her to breakfast and discuss furthering their arrangement. The chance of a happily ever after with her Sir has Charlotte looping her arm through his and following him out the door to the club.

Canth? Decided - Experiment IV

A female volunteer enters into a containment facility, under the watchful eye of scientists, in order to collect a semen sample from a man horribly mutated by a psychic/physical bond with an alien creature.

EXCERPT from Kiki Howell’s Midnight Showing:

With the click of the lock, the one separating her from the dark and nearly empty parking lot but trapping her inside an old theatre with a ghost, she suddenly wished she’d brought a sweater. Icy fingers did a tap dance down her spine as her husband grabbed her hand. Familiar shadows, Meredith questioned, blinking her eyes to right things on the back wall where two doors lead to the newly restored theaters.

“Man, I can’t believe this place,” her husband’s long time friend and investor, David exclaimed, moving in a circle. “I’m impressed with the end result buddy. You made good use of my bucks, here.” David came to face them again and slapped her husband, John, on the back.

“You were worried?” John huffed, putting his free hand on his heart, curling over his stomach and crouching a bit. “You wound me.”

“Yeah, yeah, asshole. Take a compliment.” David punched John in the shoulder. John stumbled, taking Meredith with him rather than releasing her hand.

She only shook her head and rolled her eyes at the theatrics.

“Okay.” John straightened up immediately, tugging on his shirt to put himself to rights. His face relaxed from his silly grin. “I did my best. After a thousand, pain in the ass, little issues, it is finally done. But, I think we enjoyed every minute of it. Didn’t we honey?”
“Sure,” Meredith raised one eyebrow at her husband. “I think I could have done without the small electrical fire in theatre two’s projector room. It was only a series of one small problem after another. John insisted the place, while getting all new chairs and equipment, state of the art, of course, maintained a lot of the old charm.”

“Most of the charm,” David interjected. “We are here to get rid of that pesky ghost, tonight. Good to keep the tale going, for the community, but secretly get rid of her before she starts another fire. Never believed in this sort of thing before, the bitch has been a nuisance we can no longer ignore.”

Meredith nodded, but admonished, “Could you be nice. I would like this to go smoothly.”

She could feel something wrong with the energy of her surroundings already. Granted it was a full moon just two days before Samhain, but still, she’d already tangled with the ghost in theater two. She swore that tonight the ghost knew what she had planned, and was definitely awaiting the challenge, if not laughing at her efforts.

Thanks for sharing this amazing anthology with us Kiki!
