Whether it’s social media or a world spinning out of control, people are becoming more and more politically opinionated. Which begs the question of us horror authors and readers: What should be the role of politics in fiction?
A writer creates a piece of horror fiction. To stand a chance of getting it out there, there must be some sort of potential readership. And for it to end up in readers’ hands, it must be published.
These three very different but essential components bring us to the question: Is horror fiction art, entertainment, or business?
On episode #39 of Josh’s Worst Nightmare Oddcast, host Josh Schlossberg plays a game of cat and mouse with A.E. Santana, author of “Imperial Slaughterhouse,” as they sink their claws into the felines of dark fiction.
Thanks to Mike Davis, Pete Rawlik, and friends for having me as a guest on Lovecraft eZine Podcast to talk about the Lovecraftian elements of MALINAE with a foray into Jewish horror.
The second-most common question a horror author gets after, “Where do you get your ideas?” is, “Can you make any money doing this?”
The short answer is, “No.” The slightly longer answer is, “Not really.” But the honest answer is, “It depends.”
On episode #29 of Josh’s Worst Nightmare Oddcast, host Josh Schlossberg probes the human psyche with Regina Watts, author of IDOL, to trace the blurred lines between mysticism and mental illness.

Am I really being taken to court for my book, MALINAE, being too scary?
Midwest Book Review on MALINAE!
“As Malinae evolves, the questions of sanity, insanity, horror, and reality create a compelling first-person narrative…thoroughly engrossing reading that incorporates twists and turns even avid horror readers won’t see coming.
“The astute descriptions of little daily changes that lead to bigger, life-changing situations will especially resonate with anyone who has lived with a loved one suffering from a degenerative condition that poses new changes and challenges on a daily basis.
“Malinae is especially recommended for fans of Lovecraft-style horror; but it’s also a special pick for those interested in supernatural-tinged fictional accounts of living with disability and the ravages of old age.”
