It’s time to reveal our next Midnight Marauder! I’ve read the tarot cards and sipped the divination tea… The answers were identical. It’s clear that the spirits and the universe have come to an agreement. They’ve nominated one special soul for sacrifice.
I’m so excited and pleased to announce the first Midnight Marauder of 2016!
What the heck is a Midnight Marauder?
The Midnight Society’s Midnight Marauder is a member of the Midnight Society team. He or she is someone that goes above and beyond to contribute to the Midnight Society, to our readers, and embraces the wonders of macabre like no other.
According to the dictionary, a marauder is one who roves and raids in search of plunder and we’re always roaming the world of shadows to bring pieces of it to you.
What does this mean?
The winner of the Midnight Marauder is awarded the following:
- Bragging Right
- The Glory of the Underworld
- $20 Gift card to Amazon, Starbucks, or Barnes & Noble (winner’s choice)
Who is This Mysterious Midnight Marauder?
This Midnight Society member has dazzled me from day one with their wit, intelligence, and enthusiasm. This person is always around, rooting for our successes and encouraging us to hope back in the game after our failures. She is clever, fun, and always has well thought out ideas and thoughts to share with you. She has such a unique point of view and truly thinks outside the box and that’s what I admire about her. She recently ran one of our Midnight Book Twitter chats (our book club, check out the details here) and she picked one of the coolest (read: creepiest) short story anthologies of all time! She is giving. She is kind. She also likes creepy, which is a must!
I am forever grateful to call her my friend and I sleep better knowing that she’s in all of our corners.
Here’s a little bit more about her:
She writes middle grade horror. Awesome!
She’s active in the writing community! Just check out her Twitter.
She hates basements. True story alert!
She is literally the QUEEN OF HALLOWEEN COSTUMES. Don’t believe me? Check it out!
She has adorable pets. Just check out her Twitter pics / videos.
I doesn’t judge me when she Facetimes me and I’m in my pajamas and look like swamp thing.
She wrote a fantastic post about how she started writing ghost stories. It’s a must-read!
She wrote one of the BEST poems of ALL TIME, inspired by Robert Frost.
She likes Gothic horror and Ann Radcliffe. Just check out these facts.
Announcing the Midnight Marauder
The cards never lie. Ever.
Miss Erica Davis, aged 6 years, two months, and three weeks, vanished while lining up for a field trip to the planetarium.
Erica is predeceased by eighteen goldfish, Mother’s favorite lamp—for which she was “very sorry”, stubby bits of crayon, her left pigtail, and a gym bag full of Pop-Tarts (unfrosted strawberry).
Erica firmly believed that obituaries were read by people who had neither Mad Libs nor lives.
In lieu of flowers, condolences in the form of unmarked nine-dollar gift cards to Blockbuster, a tank of propane, or Lunchables (ham only) may be left at the hollowed out tree trunk at the edge of the woods.
As promised multiple times over the years, she haunts the internet at the following locations:
Congratulations Erica! Thank you for everything you do for me, those around you, and for the Midnight Society. Have anything nice to add about Erica? Feel free to leave kind words and compliments below!
