What are Living Dead Dolls? by Crymsyn Hart, Author of Death's Dance & Death's Revival

Please welcome Crymsyn Hart to the blog today!

What is it about dolls that scare the crap out of people? Is it because some of them look creepy? Or is it because they remind us of little human beings staring at us waiting until the cover of night to come and murder us in our beds? Or maybe it’s all of the tales we hear about dolls being possessed. Dolls, for me, don’t scare me. Although I am not one for clown dolls thanks to watching Poltergeist when I was four. Ever since then I always look at clown dolls sideways. But dolls in general don’t creep me out. 

My mother always kept her collection of antique dolls in an antique cabinet. All were over a hundred years old and some of them very valuable so I could never play with them. She did have this nun doll that I swear is possessed. And of course that was the one she gave me when she had to get rid of her collection. And now the nun is living in my bathroom closet. If there is anything attached to it now, it’s dormant. But that’s another story. 

My mother always thought I would have a love for antique dolls as well. And yeah they are cool, but not my thing. I’ve always been drawn more to the weird and macabre. So I when I started collecting Living Dead Dolls I knew I had found my thing for dolls. 

Living Dead Dolls come in their own coffins with a death certificate. There is over 31 series now with 5-7 dolls in a series. I have actually stopped buying them because they would have taken over my house if I didn’t. The dolls in my collection run from representations of the seven deadly sins, to vampires, ghouls, ghosts, and things that go bump in the night. They make me happy. Of course they are proudly displayed in the six-foot coffin I have in my dining room. It makes one hell of a conversation piece as does Bob our full size animatronic ghoulish butler we have behind the television set. 

I guess you could say he’s a life size doll. And if you look at him the wrong way people have sworn he’s looking back you.

Welcome to the Virtual Tour for Crymsyn Hart

Featured Book Releases: 

Death's Dance

Death's Revival

Death's Dance is Book One of the Deathly Encounters Series

About the Book:

Being a psychic, you would think talking to the dead was a walk in the park. However, it’s not always that simple. The hooded specter haunting me is one I’ve been dreaming about since I was a kid. One day, he appeared in my bedroom mirror. Good. Evil. I don’t know what his true intentions are. 

Enter Jackson, ghost hunting show host extraordinaire, and my ex, to save me from the big bad ghost.

From there…well…it’s been a world wind of complications. My house burnt down. I’m being stalked by an ancient evil and gotten myself back into the world of being a ghost hunting psychic. Jackson dragged me, along with a few other psychics, to a ghost town wiped off the map called Death’s Dance. 

From there things went from bad to worse. 

Death's Revival is Book Two of the Deathly Encounters Series


About the Book:

Becoming a grim reaper was right up my alley. I enjoyed being dead. I helped souls crossover into either Heaven or Hell with my fellow reaper, Than. For two years, I enjoyed my life and then the killings started. Psychics were being murdered at haunted sites and souls disappearing.Someone was tampering with the fabric of the universe, trying to draw something evil into this world. To do that, the killer needed the souls of the psychics and the ghosts he could gather to open the doorway.I was charged with saving those souls and find out who the serial killer was. Yeah, being used as bait was definitely not my first choice, but who can kill a grim reaper?I'm already dead.With Than's help, I'll stop the evil from penetrating this world so I can get back to my soul gathering.

I mean the dead stay dead, right?
