Kate Jonez is my Woman In Horror today! Not only is Kate a great author, but she is the chief editor at Omnium Gatherum Media, where she tells me there are many great books coming out in 2013. Her novel Candy House is coming out in June from Evil Jester Press.



We meet people in myriad ways. Kate Jonez and I met on Facebook and then on Goodreads, where Kate  started suggesting some great books for me to read. I started searching a little deeper into the lady that is Kate Jonez. What did I find? Wow! I found a woman who blows my socks off! Not just for her excuisite writing, but for her work with Omnium Gatherum- which I mentioned above- a small press dedicated to providing unique dark fantasy fiction. Her stories dig around the human psyche to see what horrors are hidden there. Kate also provides book formatting and design for authors of Indie and traditionally published works.

You must investigate her blog and investigate what she keeps in jars. Just saying.:D

One extrememely fascinating section of her blog is The Monster Bloghttp://katejonez.com/blog/category/monster/ These are not your typical monsters. We're talking The Zemu, The Rat King, and my personal favorite, The Busaw. I'm so intrigued with this Ghoulish rascal I want to write a novel about him!

Don't be fooled by that sweet smile on Kate's face: there are dark thoughts meandering around in her gray matter. I love those thoughts!

I highly urge EVERYONE to visit her blog and find out about Kate and her intriguing Press. Visit with the Busaw too, and tell him Blaze said hello.

Capital, cash, gold, lucre-- money makes the world go round. But fortunes easily gained are often painfully lost.

Phobophobia by Dean M Drinkel (Nov 30, 2011)

 

Book Description

November 30, 2011
There is nothing to fear but fear itself…

Twenty six original tales of horror by established masters of terror and talented new voices lie within this Lexicon of Fear.

Beware the dark power of words in BIBLIOPHOBIA…a carnival double act made in Hell can be found in the clown cemetery in COULROPHOBIA…an artist loses his power to create ice sculptures because of his fear of cold in FRIGOPHOBIA, but that is the least of his problems as his therapist suffers the same phobia…

The fear of open spaces manifests itself in KENOPHOBIA, a tale of the ultimate emptiness – the Great Void that awaits us all…the fear of beautiful women is fully justified in VENUSTROPHOBIA, a tale of futile defence against the Succubus…

…but beware: the cure may be worse…

Denying yourself a place in Heaven is one way to avoid JESUSPHOBIA, but the only alternative means Hell to pay…a playwright fights his fear of the colour yellow by creating an unusual addition to his Dramatis Personae in XANTHOPHOBIA…a Witchfinder’s fear of open water will only be relieved by imbibing one of two deathly fluids in AQUAPHOBIA…and a widower follows the age-old advice of turning to face your fear in QIQIRN, only to uncover the true nature of an Inuit dog spirit that carries the essence of cold terror from its ancient homeland into the realm of human grief…

Open the pages. It is time to learn your A to Dread…

Book Description

September 8, 2012
Fairy tales have been passed down in one form or another for countless generations. They are often our first introduction to that boundless realm we call imagination. Deep within these old stories lie the seeds of our most elemental fears. Death to the Brothers Grimm is a collection of ten re-imagined fairy tales that revels in those dark and hidden horrors. This anthology features works of bizarre fantasy from Bram Stoker Award nominees Jeremy C. Shipp and John Edward Lawson, Wonderland Award nominee Eckhard Gerdes, and the twisted visions of M.L. Roos, Garrett Cook, Kirk Jones, Crysa Leflar, Jessica McHugh, Lee Widener, and Jess Gulbranson.
 
 
It is obvious to anyone reading this post or visiting her blog that Kate Jonez is a very fascinating lady. I often talk about not writing about the same old monsters. Kate is way ahead of me with that.
 
Kate Jonez is a Woman In Horror!
