I’ve always believed in the concept of helping people out and when it comes to writing, authors need all the support they can get.
Hence my latest venture – Fresh Blood, a Facebook page I’ve created to try and help get new works of fiction into the spotlight.
The idea is pretty simple: whenever a new book comes out or one is announced, I’ll post it on Fresh Blood. What will make this endeavour work though is people power, so please, Like and Share the page. Better yet, if you hear of a new book coming out, message a link to the page and I’ll post it.
I know I won’t be able to highlight every single horror book that comes out, but even if only a handful of authors have their books bought and read because of Fresh Blood, then I consider that a win.
I’ve also learned that support goes both ways. In the past week my beta reader friends Matthew Tait, Amanda J. Spedding and Jim Chambers have helped me immensely with my stories and I owe them a huge debt. Thanks guys.
If you’re a horror author and you really want to be part of a great community I suggest you join either the Australian Horror Writers Association, or the Horror Writers Association. They’ll definitely go to hell and back for you 🙂
