It’s time to break out the black eyeliner. May 22 is World Goth Day! From the early days of the subculture steeped in goth-rock, the goth world has expanded to encompass a whole range of ways to rock the black — from the cute to the historic, and the old-school to the surprisingly colorful stylings of pastel and raver goths. And of course, being the bookworms that we are, we’ll be celebrating this May 22 with the perfect literary picks for every goth, no matter your style.

I have a confession to make:
I really like fanart.
I like fanart so much my first stop at conventions is Artist Alley. I will easily drop a hundred dollars on the perfect Victuuri postcard or a wood-block print of Chihiro and Haku. I’m always on the lookout for new fanarts to put up in my office. It helps keep my writing space fresh and colorful and I get to give money to artists I adore. It’s really a win-win.
So without further ado, here are some of my recent favorite pieces of non-Geekerella fanart for your enjoyment. I hope you find a new artist to love and support, and definitely @ me on Twitter with your favs as well!

Geekerella by Ashley Poston comes out in paperback this week and to say we’re excited would be a massive understatement. To celebrate this fantastic novel’s paperback release, we’ve pulled together a playlist inspired by Elle Wittimer and the ExcelsiCon Cosplay Ball. It’s the perfect soundtrack for cosplay creation, best paired with the whirring of a sewing machine and the smell of a hot glue gun.
