Happy Horror-Days!

Wishing you all a great celebration this week. Me, I think I'll re-read and re-watch some old holiday favorites, like "Arsenic and Old Lace", A Christmas Carol, and "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?".

What? I never said I was traditional...

Have a very happy whatever and a may all your horrors in 2009 be on the page or screen, only.

Watching to see if you've been naughty or nice (oh, my, YOU there...come here, you naughty thing you...) --

I'm Nice In Person...Really...


Well, really, it's late afternoon at the moment. But I'm a horror writer. To me, it's always dark somewhere.

To date, I've only written short horror fiction, but I'm toying with the idea of doing a horror novel. It's daunting when you know you'll be up against the masters like Dean Koontz and Stephen King. But, I'm willing to work hard and give it a try.

However, right now, short stories are where it's at for me. My first paid horror sale was to Arkham Tales. As soon as I know a release date, my blog and blog readers (hi, Mom!) will be the first to know.

Like all horror writers, I do feel the need to protest that I'm charming and pleasant in person, a good person to have at a party, and not at all weird and creepy like my stories. My spouse says this is up for interpretation.

So, welcome to my author's blog. I hope to scare you and make you think along the way...but if all I do is entertain you, then my work is done.

Watching you from under your bed,
J.C. Koch
