Writers are readers, or they should be if they want to be any good. Read about some of the books that shaped my writing over at Confessions of a Reviewer. From Stephen King to Neil Gaiman, from gay vampires to were-centipedes. No guilty pleasures here.
‘The sky is purple, the flare of a match behind a cupped hand is gold. The liquor is green, made from a thousand herbs, made from altars. Those who know enough to drink Chartreuse at Mardi Gras are lucky, because the distilled essence of the town burns in their bellies. Chartreuse glows in the dark, and if you drink enough of it your eyes will turn bright green.’ Lost Souls by Poppy Z. Brite
While you’re there, take a minute to read some of the excellent reviews, and other Confessions from awesome new horror writers such as Mark Cassell, Calum Chalmers and Matthew Cash.
If you like what you read, or if you don’t, let me know. Leave a comment, I’d love to hear what you think of my Confessions.
