Agenting: Horror + a Giveaway

Hi, everyone! I want to start by saying that this blog is still, and will be for a long time, my personal space for book reviews and such. I haven't talked much about my day job here, and I have no plans to devote the blog to my work as an agent. (Note I am giving away a copy of Adam Nevill's No One Gets Out Alive so be sure to scroll through to the Rafflecopter to enter.)

But I wanted to do an agenting post today because anyone who follows Writers Digest or Chuck Sambuchino may have seen today's list of "9 Literary Agents Seeking Horror NOW" - which I'm lucky enough to have been included on.

If you've followed the blog for a while then you're well aware that I'm a horror fiend. So it makes sense that it would be one of the genres (and there are a lot) that I'd want to champion as an agent. And while I don't have an agent wish list of topics, per se (because I'm basically looking for a great books in general!), I did want to share some of my favorite horror reads, in case you're curious about what appeals to me.

(I'm particularly drawn to ghost stories, apocalypse tales, and abandoned hospitals/asylums/orphanages, I don't know why.)

And now for the giveaway. Adam Nevill's No One Gets Out Alive is now out in paperback and I have a bright, shiny copy for one of you. To enter simply fill out the Rafflecopter below before Monday, August 29. Open US only.

I like ghost stories, paranormal and the asylum type books. I haven't read a horror book in a while. I always loved Stephen King's books. I don't know where he gets his ideas.

I love a good horror story and haven't read one in awhile.

I don't read much horror and there really is no valid reason for that. If anything is a page-Turner, horror typically is!

Ghost stories are riveting and enthralling. Thanks.
