Evil Editor

This is Evil Editor.

This is one of his better pictures. I like to call him Mr. Eyebrows.

Mr. Eyebrows has just announced the release of Novel Deviations 3. What's that you ask? It is the best of his blog compiled into book form, volume 3.

If you know nothing about Evil Editor, then you are missing a great site where writers send in query letters and novel or short story openings that are then critiqued by Evil Editor and his minions. Trust me when I tell you it is his comments that make his blog so worthy of a trip.

My pal Church Lady is having a blog party over at her blog on Thursday, Jan 24 9am - 9pm. Evil Editor will be there to promote his book and guest blog. And Church promises that there will be evil fun, evil laughter, and great evil prizes!

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
And now a quote from Evil himself - "The details of my life are quite inconsequential... very well, where do I begin? My father was a relentlessly self-improving boulangerie owner from Belgium with low grade narcolepsy and a penchant for buggery. My mother was a fifteen year old French prostitute named Chloe with webbed feet. My father would womanize, he would drink. He would make outrageous claims like he invented the question mark. Sometimes he would accuse chestnuts of being lazy. The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament. My childhood was typical. Summers in Rangoon, luge lessons. In the spring we'd make meat helmets. When I was insolent I was placed in a burlap bag and beaten with reeds- pretty standard really. At the age of twelve I received my first scribe. At the age of fourteen a Zoroastrian named Vilma ritualistically shaved my testicles. There really is nothing like a shorn scrotum... it's breathtaking- I highly suggest you try it."

Thank you Evil. The shorn scrotum really explains alot.

In other news:

The lovely and extremely talented Sarah Hina has been selected as a semi-finalist in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel award!! CONGRATULATIONS SARAH!!!! This is such tremendous news and I am so very happy for her. So now if any of you have a second, please pop by here and take a look at her excerpt and if you like it, please leave her a review. We Sarah Hina fans will thank you kindly!

And last but not least:

Our other favorite but much prettier Editor, Moonrat, is having a Contest. HURRAY FOR CONTESTS THAT I ABSOLUTELY DON'T HAVE THE TIME TO ENTER BUT CANNOT RESIST! Here are all the details. Deadline is Friday the 25th. I shall attempt to enter both contests as it is always my mission in life to make Moonrat pee her pants. Okay Moonie, break out the Depends! The challenge has been thrown down and "We who are about to MakeYouPee, salute you!"

That photo scared the crap out of me. I think I need to go lie down now.

Um, the bird photo, I mean.

Charles Gramlich said...

Cool bird. Certainly looks evil enough for the title.

Sarah Hina said...

Oh. My. God.


Thank you, thank you, thank you, Ello! And to be mentioned in the same breath with EE, Church Lady, and moonrat. My heart is full.


It just burst.



THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Robin S. said...

Oh, ello! He looks evil this way all right, but, honey, where's the sexy part?

Oh my. My fantasies have just been skewered. Or maybe I should say... marinated, sliced and diced, and barbecued, baby.

Church Lady said...

Thanks Ello!!!
OMG--Did you find that quote from EE's blog? A shorn scrotum (please leave my mental library)

Josephine Damian said...

Ello, kudos to you for coming up with Mr. Evil, and a bushy eye-brow tie in.

Are you gonna post your entry here when you're done?

moonrat said...

Larramie said...

My goodness, Ello, you are in rare form today by ranting about GOOD things! *VBG*

Demon Hunter said...

Cool, I'll have to check out Moonrat and EE! :*)

The Anti-Wife said...

Great photo!

Cakespy said...

In love with scary photos. In love with Ello, Moonrat, contests, and evil! Yay for evil! And I am going right now to see this Sarah Hina who looks adorable!

Froog said...

Dear Ello,

Since you are such a connoisseur of farting, I thought you might be interested in this old treatise on the topic (one of a list of 'Weirdest Ever Book Titles' I happened upon on a British newspaper website recently). I hope this link will be OK - it's too long a string to display properly in the Blogger 'comments' window, but I think it should still work when you click on it.

Thanks for the heads-up about Church Lady's blog-party. I will try to stop by.

Wonderful photographs, and I hope to be able to join in as well. If I were more au fait with posting photographs, I would have been able to post suitable images too. Unfortunately, I have to have someone else help me with the technology of posting photographs, and how embarrassing it is to have to admit that.
