Getting personal with Stanley Wiater


  One of my most interesting interviews to date has to be Stanley Wiater. This man has interviewed everyone I have always wanted to meet and then some. He got to sit in the same room with them and pick their brains. I can’t even imagine. I would faint. I met him on a pod cast where I did book reviews and I can say that he is the most down to earth and kindest person I have had the pleasure to meet. He is smart and funny and gives great advice. I learned a lot by talking to him and how to do better interviews. Normally I send the questions to the author and they fill them out and send them back to me. However I had the honor of a phone call for this one. It was an honor and pleasure to be abl...

Getting personal with Kenneth W. Cain

▪
Kenneth W. Cain first got the itch for storytelling during his formative years in the suburbs of Chicago, where he got to listen to his grandfather spin tales by the glow of a barrel fire. But it was a reading of Baba Yaga that grew his desire for dark fiction. Shows like The Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, and One Step Beyond furthered that sense of wonder for the unknown, and he’s been writing ever since.Cain is the author of The Saga of I trilogy, United States of the Dead, the short story collections These Old Tales and Fresh Cut Tales, and his latest Embers: A Collection of Dark Fiction. Writing, reading, fine art, graphic design, and Cardinals baseball are b...

Getting personal with Stephanie M. Wytovich


How old were you when you first wrote your first story? The first story I wrote was in middle school and it was about a rogue vampire clan who killed a young girl’s parents, which then caused her to spend the rest of her life tracking them down so she could avenge her family. It was super violent, and my teacher actually sent the story, and me, to the guidance counselor. *smirks* How many books have you written?I’ve written five poetry collections with Raw Dog Screaming Press (Hysteria: A Collection of Madness, Mourning Jewelry, An Exorcism of Angels, Brothel, and Sheet Music to My Acoustic Nightmare) and my debut novel, The Eighth, is published with Dark Regions Press. Tell me about you.I’m...

Marge Simon Interview


I’m pleased to have Marge Simon on board for an interview. Marge’s story will appear this year in Tales from the Lake, edited by Kenneth W. Cain, Crystal Lake Publishing. Where did you get your concept for “The Midland Hotel”? The Midland Hotel began as a poem. The poem was inspired by a trip my husband and I took to meet up with some friends in Tampa, FL. They booked us rooms overnight at a hotel.   Several stories high, It looked okay from the outside, but once in our room we were less than pleased.  Rather than a pile carpet, it had tile floors. The bedspread was thin, with one flat pillow per bed. The bathroom offered a used bar of soap and half a toilet paper roll. There were no ameniti...

Book Review: “The Victim’s Club” by Jeffery Deaver

I read “The Victim’s Club to take the bad taste from the preceding review out of my mouth. And I’m glad I did. Jeffery Deaver’s novella (called ‘Kindle Single’ by Amazon) is just what the doctor ordered. A sleepy county police establishment in a Massachussets college town sees Detective Jon Avery take over a colleague’s … Continue reading Book Review: “The Victim’s Club” by Jeffery Deaver →Original link

Book Review: “The War Planners” by Andrew Watts

I don’t know how this book can be called a bestseller without insulting readers’ intelligence. There are six things I expect from a novel: a plausible story, well developed characters, a good hook, an adequate title, good writing and a satisfying ending; even if the novel is episodic. “The War Planners” has only one of … Continue reading Book Review: “The War Planners” by Andrew Watts →Original link

South Southwest Wales by David Owain Hughes


Now, it is no secret that I love David’s writing. His stories are absolutely amazing. Most all of what he has written has been horror. There was one previously that was one of my favorites and still is that was not horror. He will scream when I say it was one of the best he has written. That book is Collision Course. I also have a copy of it in my bookshelf. That being said this book definitely shows that David can write in any genre he wants to dive into. That folks take true talent. Trust me you want to read this book. It is a real barn burner. Don’t wait…. go get it right now. The story starts with a washed up detective named Sampson Valentine. He use to be the best of the best until booz...

Book Review: “Remote Access” by Barry Finlay

I will try to diminish the controversy of this review by staying out of the explosive politics, but I’m not sure I’ll be successful. First and foremost, this is a superb novel screaming out of the current events pages. Barry Finlay is an accomplished novelist and has laid out a plot and developed characters that … Continue reading Book Review: “Remote Access” by Barry Finlay →Original link

Getting personal with Billy Chizmar


Billy Chizmar, much like his father, excels in everything he does. He works hard and plays hard and it shows! This up-and-coming writer/screenwriter is clearly one to watch. I have had the honor of reading his stories and reviewing the book he wrote with his dad. Honestly, I wasn’t sure what to expect but was completely thrilled reading Widow’s Point. To say it’s good is putting it mildly. It’s brilliant. His writing and Richards mesh perfectly and it was impossible to tell where one stopped and the other began. If you missed reading works by Billy Chizmar I highly suggest you change that immediately. You will love it! Billy is also a very skilled lacrosse player and played in high school an...

Getting personal with Stanley Wiater


  Stanley Wiater is one of those people who for me has had the dream job. Getting to rub elbows with the who’s who of horror. Writing interviews and meeting some of the biggest and best in this industry. He is very smart, humble and has an amazing sense of humor. I first met him when he was on The Panic Room Radio Show. I couldn’t hear enough. I had to know more about this man and his life. So I begged for an interview. Fortunate for me he decided to let this star struck girl do just that and I even got to speak to him on the phone. For me, it was another dream interview! What follows is just part of what we spoke about. I can’t say thank you for this opportunity enough! You are incredible!!...
