In interview with Kristy Harding is part of Kristy Harding’s “Meet the Author” series. Earlier this month, I had the opportunity to sit down with Kristy Harding and talk a little bit about horror fiction, literary influence, where the fear comes from and how horror writers can exploit it. We chatted about early childhood influences in horror fiction, including Stephen King, Neil Gaiman’s The Sandman, Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark with the original illustrations from Stephen Gammel, Bunnicula, Dan Simmons’ Summer of Night, and Christopher Pike.
We also talk a little bit about the game plan behind the free monthly releases here at KiraButler.com, and what I’ve been up to with the Short Fictions & Curiosities project — how a project such as this aims to serve future book marketing and building an author brand.
Kristy is an editor at Paper Tape Magazine, and has published several articles of her own on writing. She’s recently launched a series of writer-specific horoscopes at her blog, which are turning out to be scary accurate.
Do check out what she’s up to, and by all means, please read the interview. 🙂
