I’ve contributed a piece, on writing horror – GOING UNDERGROUND – to Crystal Lake’s encyclopaedic HORROR 101: THE WAY FORWARD. A candid take from me on developing as a writer, and what my priorities were, I’d say, from starting out onwards.
Here’s the book’s concept: “a comprehensive overview of the Horror fiction genre and career opportunities available to established and aspiring authors. Covering aspects such as movies, comics, short stories, ghost-writing, audiobooks, editing, publishing, self-publishing, blogging, writer’s block, YA horror, reviewing, dark poetry, networking, collaborations, eBooks, podcasts, conventions, series, formatting, web serials, artwork, social media, agents, and career advice from seasoned professionals and up-and-coming talents, Horror 101 is just what you need to kick your career into high gear.
Horror 101: The Way Forward is not your average On Writing guide, as it is more focused on the career options available to authors. But don’t fret, this book is loaded with career tips and behind-the-scene stories on how your favourite authors broke into their respective fields.”
