If you work with horror, the supernatural, the surreal, or other “dark” aesthetics in prose fiction, poetry, film, or other media, I probably want to host you for a guest post or interview.

GUEST POST? I am open to suggestions, but a guest post would likely be about a distinctive angle on your work. Promote freely, but avoid mere plot summaries and plaudits. Examples: How does the work challenge its (sub)genre? What’s compelling about its inspiration? You’re a creative. Be creative!

INTERVIEW? Send me (publishable) descriptions of the one or two work(s) you want to focus on, along with a brief bio, and I’ll send you 5-10 questions that I’ve attempted to tailor to you and your work. The goal is to promote you and to find angles of interest a little sharper than typical blurbs.

Posts should run about 1,000 words; interviews tend to go longer. I might reject a piece for poor writing or excessive length. I don’t intend to interfere with style or content, but I will edit for grammar, etc., and except in rare cases, I won’t seek author approval for my edits. R-rated language is fine, but I reserve the right to reject a piece for using hate speech and related material. Otherwise, I want to accept all I can.

I do not pay. I do not charge. This site does not sell ads or otherwise generate income. I do provide sales links; if you’re a guest, I hope you’ll provide sales links. My goal is to make connections and share a promotional space that I’ve invested in and don’t want to underuse.

If you’re interested, contact me about your interests, and we’ll go from there. I hope to hear from you!
