Mylo Carbia is a Hollywood screenwriter turned #1 bestselling author widely known for her work in the horror-thriller genre and trademark of surprise twist endings.

Ranked among “The Greatest Horror Writers of All Time" by Ranker.com, "The Top 10 Horror Writers Alive Today" by Booklaunch, and "The Most Influential Authors" by Richtopia.com, her award-winning writing style has been described as "a perfect mix between Stephen King, M.

Network with other key individuals in the horror community (writers, agents, publishers, bloggers) and let them know what you're working on. I think Twitter and Goodreads are the two best places for new writers to connect. Also, joining the Horror Writers Association (HWA) at the supporting level for less than $50 a year is a fantastic way to connect with people in the horror community, so check it out at horror.org. Then once your book is released, your network will help promote your book and you will see the sales. Best of luck and welcome!(less)

I have to agree. In a sick, twisted way, this book really is about soulmates gone awry.(less)
