Not surprisingly, October is always my busiest month. October is when people’s thoughts turn to graveyards… well, other people’s thoughts, anyway. You know how I am.
The first of my new cemetery columns appeared on Gothic Beauty this week. I chose to write about one of my favorite cemeteries in the world: London’s lovely Highgate. My family visited this summer, as a thunderstorm rolled in. You can check out the story here: http://www.gothicbeauty.com/2016/10/in-glorious-highgate-cemetery/
The Library of the Damned interviewed me about the scariest thing I’ve ever read and what terrifies me in real life: http://libraryofthedamned.com/2016/10/14/31-days-of-halloween-with-loren-rhoads/
Even though Litquake rejected my proposed reading this year, I got quoted in the San Francisco Chronicle about what a great thing Litquake is. It’s all true: the vampires, the porn, the feeling like a rockstar: http://www.sfgate.com/books/article/Litquake-makes-writers-feel-like-rock-stars-9773132.php
Finally, the Strange California anthology is still raising funds on Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/jasonbatt/strange-california-a-speculative-fiction-anthology
