Instagram June Gloom Horror Challenge

As a new writer, I was told by people in the know that I had to build a social media platform for my books. It’s a challenging endeavor because I am an introvert at heart, but I have “met” some interesting and cool folks on this journey. Many of the interactions have been positive and fun. I’m having a good time!

For instance, during the entire month of June on Instagram I played along with the June Gloom Horror Challenge (#junegloomhorrorchallenge) started by @zachattack_thedesigner. The challenge was to post a horror movie for a specific category every day for the entire month of June. I rediscovered some enjoyable flicks and found some new ones to check out. It was so much fun that I thought I would share my posts from that challenge with you. Follow me on Instagram @joyyehle to share in the insta-fun!
