I’m off in the morning to New Hampshire. This weekend is the inaugural Anthology writer’s conference. It is being put on by the guys at Shroud Publication. I’m hoping to get lots info, and possibly videos, to post up here afterwards. If you want to keep up with everything going on this weekend, follow my personal twitter feed: @wdprescott.
Happy Friday, everyone! Today we have Lee Allen Howard sitting down for the next quick fire interview for the new book, Many Genres, One Craft. Lee, a graduate of the Seton Hill University’s Writing Popular Fiction program, is also a student of divinity. So who better to talk about the religious part of the Horror genre’s foundation. We also talk about LBGT issues, horror’s role in e-books, and why he turned to writing horror. Continue reading “Bountiful Bits with Lee Allen Howard”
With over 900 short stories under his belt, Michael Bracken has joined us for the next Many Genres, One Craft interview. While better known for his mystery and women’s fiction stories, don’t let that fool you into thinking he doesn’t know his horror. But he does give an important “outside” look to horror that readers and non-readers of the genre can learn from.
Some of the contributors of the recently released book; Many Genres, One Craft; are making a swing around NHRS during their Virtual Blog Tour. First up is beautiful and talented Mary San Giovanni. A Bram Stoker Award nominee who has written acclaimed novels since her time at Seton Hill University’s Writing Popular Fiction program. Come see what she has to say about what is horror, what makes horror effective, and women’s unique role in the genre.
Rising horror writer, Kevin Lucia, recently posted on his blog on why he got into writing horror. While it’s assumed that we aren’t all the same in our reasons, it helps show that we aren’t all traditional either. Take a read of his blog, and possibly his stories.
