Hey, friends. Blogging has been sparse lately, as has been Facebook, as has been Twitter, as have been all things not family, teaching, or writing. Because as much as I love interacting with everyone online, the three things I just listed matter far, far more to me. Particularly family. So it occurred to me today […]Read more "WOLF LAND, the Novel Coming in November…"
Was that a direct enough statement? I’m not a veteran convention-goer, and I’m only currently doing four or so a year. Next year, I plan to add Stokercon to my list of conventions, and I’m sure it’ll rock, but folks? Scares That Care 2 was absolutely epic. Rather than writing a novella here, I’ll give you […]Read more "Scares That Care Is the Best Convention in the World"
Oh, Angela Waters, how happy you make me. You listen to my ideas for cover art and then make them fifty-seven times better than they were in my head.

Janz is one of my new favorites.” –Brian Keene The above words were penned by one of […]Read more "“One of the best writers in modern horror to come along in the last decade” –Brian Keene"
Short and quick, folks. That’s tonight’s theme. Jonathan Reitan, writing for SCREAM MAGAZINE (a kick-bootie and crazy popular UK horror publication), just wrote an awesome review of THE NIGHTMARE GIRL, which includes gems like this: “Janz brings true terror to the pages of NIGHTMARE GIRL with scenes that will make your skin crawl.” And this: “Janz builds […]Read more "“Jonathan Janz is one of horror’s great new writers” –SCREAM MAGAZINE"
Hello, my friends. It has been awhile, but I’ve got some good stuff for you tonight. But first, the bit of bad news. My biological father died. I won’t go into it further at the moment, but for now I’ll just say it has been a strange time. How’s that for oblique? In better news… […]Read more "99-Cent Books, a New Audiobook, New Reviews, and One Bit of Bad News"
