Publicity is the lifeblood of any horror writer with thin wallet — which is most of us. And it’s more than just the fact that it’s free as opposed to paid advertising. Good publicity contains a real or implied third-party endorsement. It’s not just you saying good things about you — it’s someone else.
Which is just a roundabout way of saying, “Thanks, This is Horror, and editor Michael Wilson, for posting the interview.” I got the chance to extoll my views to an unwary readership on horror fiction and promote my latest novel, Bloodthirst in Babylon. My Meet the Writer interview, for the curious, is right here.
This is Horror is a very cool-looking UK-based blog for fans of anything horror, especially books. I encourage horror fans to check it out. You’ll find plenty of book reviews and interviews with horror writers, as well as news and views on film, video games and graphic novels, and in-depth features. For instance, the most recent post at this time is about the state of Australian horror. How cool is that?
