Hey writer friends, anyone need inspiration for writing a horror novel? Check out my pics from the Ten Courts of Hell, Haw Par Villa, Singapore (warning…these plastic figures actually look pretty gross)

Haw Par Villa was constructed by the inventors of Tiger Balm as a place to teach traditional Chinese values. By the way, punishment for disobeying your elders in Yama, the third court of hell, lorded over by King Songdi? Heart cut out.

    That is so well timed. I have spent half the weekend doing similar research for my 3rd Sprite story. My main character is married to the vessel of balance. (The natural embodiment of yin\yang). There is a lot of learning for Sprite who was raised agnostic but finds out she is half human and half Gods will. She knows little of christianity and demons. Her husband Juan is Balance. She has much to learn to protect their son.

        Yes they do. I think it is a perfect place for Juan to take the baby, The pictures help cement just how bad Sprite is going to freak out about it.
