Interview – Alexis Bristowe

How did you first get involved with voice acting? Voice acting as a career was always something in the back of my mind up until recently. Growing up, I loved cartoons and acting on stage, but going into voice acting was half an accident. I remember in 2012 I did some minor voice projects here and there as a hobby and one of the people from those communities suggested I listen to a certain horror anthology podcast. I noticed they…

Interview with C L Raven

Interview with C L Raven

How long have you been writing for? We started writing novels when we were 12 – we’re now 35, but we only had our first short story published ten years ago.   You’re a sister writing duo, how does that dynamic help your stories  come to life? It’s great when one of us is stuck, because we just switch, rather than having to stare at a blank page and wondering where the hell our muse has wandered off to. We’re…

Interview with Valeska Griffiths of Grim Magazine and Anatomy of a Scream

Where did the idea to start Anatomy of a Scream come from? I’ve always been pretty fascinated with the darker side of life. My mother loved horror, and I have vivid memories of both hiding from the films she used to watch and sneakily trying to see them for myself. I grew up obsessed with Stephen King novels, 90s teen horror and slashers, ghost stories, and the paranormal. AOAS began as just a quiet, personal blog, where I could practice…

Interview with Author Baylea Hart

Interview with Author Baylea Hart

*How long have you been writing for?* I’ve been writing since I was about seven years old. I remember being given an old computer with a word processor that I would spend hours typing on in my bedroom. Around that time I also created a little book, made with paper I stapled together, that I put on my classroom bookshelf. It was about a man who killed children on their birthdays, creatively titled The Birthday Man. I coloured it in…

Interview with author Augie Peterson

*How long have you been writing for?* I typically say I started when I was 10, but in reality, I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember. I wrote two books when I was younger, one about the secret life of a pet dog and another about a family of talking jaguars. I also wrote poetry when I was younger and filled about three notebooks with half- written stories because I hated to end them *How many rejections…

The Consuming Shadow- Minimalism Maximized by B.B. Blazkowicz

The Consuming Shadow- Minimalism Maximized by B.B. Blazkowicz

The Consuming Shadow is a 2D rogue-like survival horror game by Yahtzee Crowshaw. In it you play as a character known only as “The Scholar” who is tasked with stopping an invading “Lovecraftian” god by discovering and completing a banishment ritual at Stonehenge. Game-play is split between plotting courses across an overland map of England in your car and exploring various “Dungeons”. I chose the title “Minimalism Maximized” because the game executes a dizzying level of subtly and complexity using…

Interview with Aliyah Johnson author of the upcoming DeTours Series

*How long have you been writing for?* I’ve actually been writing since I was ten. The start was short stories and writing didn’t become serious for me until I began my series, which will be of seven years now.   *How many rejections did you receive before you first became publishedand how did you stay motivated?* I’m not published but that’s the ultimate goal in this process. I haven’t received rejection yet but I’m sure it’ll get to that point…

Story Review: Dead Over Heels by Theresa Braun

Story Review: Dead Over Heels by Theresa Braun

Dead Over Heels is the story of Veronica who can’t seem to catch a break in the love department. Tired of the grind, she turns to magic to help find that special someone. It’s a pretty short read so I don’t want to spoil any more of it than that but it was a lot of fun. I think it clocks in at around 37 pages. Dead Over Heels doesn’t waste a single sentence in that time. As I said, it’s relatively…

Gary Buller Interview

*How long have you been writing for?* I’m pretty late to the writing game. I wrote my first short story for submission last year at 33 years old. It was the first time I’d written anything creative since high school. Being published was something on my bucket list, and it sort of turned into an addiction from there. *How many rejections did you receive before you first became published and how did you stay motivated?*   I think I received…

Guest Article: Author Bo Chappell

With the current state of our country, it’s hard to ignore the continued debate over women’s role in our society. The importance and equality of women should be obvious by now, and yet, there is still a demand by mainstream film goers for the heroes in their film to be male. The knight in shining armor. The quick-witted adventurer. The rebel cop. The dashing spy. Men kicking ass, defeating evil and rescuing the girl has been the standard since the…

Authors Review Their Own Work: Pochassic

Authors Review Their Own Work: Pochassic

Hello my name is Pochassic and I write stories. Today I am going to try something that could go horribly awry, I am going to review my own work. Why would I try something that seems so shallow and pretentious as reviewing my own work? Well the complete and utter truth is I was really high one day when I read a tweet from horror-writers.com asking if any author was interested in reviewing their own stuff, so I volunteered. Flesh…
