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 Blog. http://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.
This is Kate Jonez's Amazon bio:

When she's not writing, editing or doing publishing chores, she reads, takes photos, investigates odd and obscure historical stuff and collects things in jars.
