It’s Friday the 13th & it’s release time for the paperback edition of Horror 101: The Way Forward! I’m so proud to be involved in such a feat for Crystal Lake Publishing, not only as co-editor but as a contributor, I’m damn proud of the work Joe Myndhardt has completed through thick & thin with this. I’ve had the opportunity to work with people I respect, some I know personally as friends, some I don’t…but I know them a lot better now! The best title yet…yet. 😉
“The multiple writing guides out there take you on a step-by-step process and mold all of us into a form designed to give us that definite edge, provided we follow the steps like the ABC’s like the good little dancers we will soon resemble. Not so with Horror 101. The focus of this volume is giving you the lessons and life experience learned by the Masters, both male and female. As each journey is ultimately one of our making, their experience and insights lay the foundation and future steps into our own horror fiction, first drafts, editing the blessed baby of our precious imagination, publishing, agents, overcoming the dreaded writer’s block, networking, self publishing, and leaving us excited about the genre of horror fiction.” – Bruce Blanchard

This one’s from amazon.com, a customer review from Bacchus
The world of publishing is more than a little bewildering these days, with new options for publishing and a greater need than ever for writers to know how to market their work and promote themselves. Although this book is a mixed bag, the info that is helpful in this volume far outweighs the fluff, and is worth much more than the price of the book. If you’re just starting out as a writer you NEED to read this book. If you’re a pro with sales under your belt or are self-publishing your work, you’ll find resources in here to increase your sales and fan base. There’s great practical advice on the act of writing, being a writer (acting professionally), how and where to promote yourself, etc. from writers of books and movies, from veterans and fairly new success stories, from reviewers and editors. No matter what level you’re on as a writer, you’ll learn something worth learning.
One thing you’ll notice when you open this book it’s not your usual writing guide. It’s designed not to over-face or overwhelm. It’s made with the eye towards those who really do want to write, but don’t want to walk in without a kind face or a hand to lead. We have views from authors on how they manage the life of a writer, the day job, the frustrations, the hope & sheer bloody-minded determination. So don’t be scared, we’ll walk with you. Click & get your copy, don’t forget those highlighters! ref=sr_1_1_bnp_1_pap?ie=UTF8&qid=1402632844&sr=8-1&keywords=horror+101+the+way+forward http://www.amazon.co.uk/Horror-101-The-Way-Forward/dp/0992227216/ref=tmm_pap_title_0?ie=UTF8&qid=1402632918&sr=1-1
