Horror 101: The Way Forward is the best non-fiction book about horror writing you will ever find. Why? Take a peek at the authors involved. Look at the table of contents and peruse the topics covered: everything! The women and men sharing their knowledge with you are all pros. They make a living at the craft.

I've been writing for some 28 years now and have ghostwritten some 75 novels and have plenty more to come out under my Blaze brand. I'm not a rookie. I have two articles in this superb tome. One is on ghostwriting, back in the days when people did not know we existed. Well, we did. Read my piece and you might be surprised at what went on. I'm not shy about what I say. I also have another one on poetry and horror. Once again, I'm no stranger to the pull of a well written horror poem.

But I do not know everything about the craft. Far from it. None of us do. We learn from each other and our education never stops. My Collaborative Press is exploding with new concepts. And guess what? This how to 414 page book of knowledge has many answers to my questions. For example: we are going to start doing comics and Graphic Novels. Bingo! It's in this book. We want to do movies. It's here! Everything my twisted mind wants to do is within the pages of this book. Now, if I am willing to share what I know with you, not for pay, but for the community of authors wishing to grow in the craft, then maybe it's for good reason. All of us have given of ourselves. We are pros and we want all of you to become pros as well.

So, do yourselves a favor. Buy this 414 word smorgasbord of knowledge and learn some things. Another great thing? This literal encyclopedia of experience and knowledge is only .99. Get it now before Joe Mynhardt comes to his senses and raises the price.
