It’s been an amazing Coffin Hop tour. In celebrating my first publication credit, I interviewed nine authors from the upcoming Monsters! anthology to discuss their stories and their perspective on Christians writing Horror. Here’s a sample from the Jeremy K. Tyler/JR Roper podcast interview over at the Holy Worlds Podcast. Continue reading
We are now halfway through my contribution to the Coffin Hop Horror Web Tour, and to recap, I have been interviewing other authors from the upcoming Monsters! anthology put out by A Flame in the Dark. The theme for this anthology is the same for my theme here: should Christians write Horror and can they do it without being preachy or predictable (Deus ex machina- Latin term referring to an outside solution or force as a means of resolving a plot.)? Today, I have the honor of presenting a written interview with Pauline Creeden, a Fantasy, Horror and Devotional writer who “breaks down Biblical stories and applies them to real life in new ways.” As a thanks for stopping by to read what Pauline has to say on this subject of Christian Horror, I’m running a giveaway.

First, I apologize for not posting a Saturday Spotlight this past weekend. It’s my first time missing it, and I’m sorry. I took my brother in law snowboarding and developed a massive headache afterwards that left me not wanting to do anything but drink water and stare at my laptop. I read a lot of short stories last week, but none made the cut. I was going to mix it up a little and post the video I recorded, but I recorded in fast forward, so all my videos were two seconds long. At that point, I took the hint that I should just give up and call it a night.
So, now that I’ve recuperated, I’d like to share a little about what I’m reading. It’s sort of like a spotlight, but it also relates to those of us with larger reading piles than we can handle. I’m not going to list the ten books on my Goodreads “currently reading” list because some of them lost my attention and I don’t want to post negative publicity. I’ve learned that I wax and wane between genres and I am currently most interested in horror. That means the Epic Fantasy books have been put down. I know they’re good books, and so I don’t want to ruin the read by reading them when I’m not interested in that type of story. Continue reading
