Great interview. Loved
Question: Did things at Cemetery Dance not work out, or do you have something in the works? I checked out their website and didn't see anything there when I searched your name and books. Just curious.
Oh... and thanks for following my reviews! I think it's funny as my original review of Cursed was just one quickly-typed line with a favorable rating. I've sinced revised it because I believe your book certainly deserved more of my time. I must have been in a hurry when I wrote it... no excuse!
If you want to follow some GREAT reviews check out:
Their reviews are a LOT more creative and insightful than mine! Lou is the one who turned me on to Cursed.
Keep up the great work!

Like your comments to Amal, Jeremy. You're so right. Nobody can describe all horror stories as being one kind of thing. Nor all love stories. Nor all mysteries. We read one book in a genre and are far too influenced by that one book.
I'll review your new book for you if you send it to me, Jeremy.

I agree with you Jeremy.
I think the problem is where to draw the lines for those boundaries. How horrifying the movie is or how scary the book is...the other day I wrote a short story for children and made everyone of my children reads it alone. I received extreme responses. One of them thought it's horrifying and will make children cry while another child laughed and thought it's a funny story.
I just wish there is some rating system for books like in movies.
nice talking to you Jeremy.

Thanks so much, Amal! That's kind of you to say.
In answer to your question, I would tell those people to respect their boundaries. I myself don't watch certain kinds of horror movies, because they disturb me so much. I would also tell them that there are many kinds of horror movies and books in the world. Some of them are stories that explore the darkness of our world, in order to give people hope and to make our world a better place. :)

I read the interview and you sound like a wonderful person.
I just have one more question...what do you say to people who are afraid of watching horrifying movies or reading a horrifying novel, what is your advice to them?
