SPOTLIGHT ON: Lori Michelle
How did you get involved in the upcoming Imaginarium convention?
My other half, Max Booth III, told me that there was a new convention that needed people with my expertise, so I said “What the heck” and signed up.
What is your latest release and what genre is it?
I run a quarterly magazine and a monthly e-magazine. Dark Moon Digest 16 came out in July and Dark Eclipse comes out every month. Both of them are horror. Personally, the last thing I put together that I want to promote is Bleed, an anthology of horror stories where the proceeds go to the National Children’s Cancer Society.
Quick description of it.
No one should ever have to deal with cancer, especially a child. BLEED is a charity anthology where the profits will go to help children who have cancer. Forty seven stories, poems and essays by the best in the horror business, including Bentley Little, Rick Hautala, Joe McKinney, Mort Castle, Benjamin Kane Ethridge, Tim Waggoner, Gene O’Neill, and William Nolan. This is for all the little girls and boys who fight the good fight everyday.
Something unique about it.
My own son was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia when he was only 3. Since then, it has been a brave fight which he has survived. I wanted to draw attention on this horrible disease and on the kids whose lives will never be the same.

Your short Bio.
Lori is the co-owner of Perpetual Motion Machine Publishing and the managing editor of Dark Moon Digest and Dark Eclipse. She is the author of Dual Harvest and the editor of Bleed, an anthology where the proceeds will go to the National Children’s Cancer Society. She has had stories appear in several different anthologies, including the 2012 Bram Stoker finalist, Slices of Flesh.
Lori was born in Los Angeles, CA where she was raised to be a ballerina. After injuring herself before her career could begin, she turned her creative efforts elsewhere. Now she resides in San Antonio Texas, where she is the mother of two, html coder, graphic designer, book formatter and general pain in the ass.
When not talking about writing stories, sometimes Lori actually writes short stories, novels, half finished novels and poems. And while pretending to work, she creates websites and designs business cards on the side. She also enjoys peanut butter on her waffles. Don’t ask. Or ask, she will answer.
