Hey, friends. For a brief time, one of my best books, my recent 2015 release THE NIGHTMARE GIRL, is on sale for only 99 cents. If you haven’t, I truly hope you check it out. If you need any other convincing, you could read glowing reviews from places like Pod of Horror, Rue Morgue, Horrornews, Ginger Nuts […]Read more "THE NIGHTMARE GIRL Is Only 99 Cents!"
Hey, friends. Busy times, busy times. I missed the Word Horror Convention a few days ago, which pained me…until I realized all I would have missed here at home. One of these days I’ll make it to WHC, but it wasn’t in the cards this year. Anyway, Paul Nelson (writing for the extremely-popular Scream Magazine), […]Read more "Scream Magazine on EXORCIST ROAD: “A frenetically paced horror thriller that never takes its foot off the gas”"
The title of this post says it all, but I’ll go ahead and share the full quote since it made me so happy: “One of the best writers in modern horror to come along in the last decade. 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"
Sometimes you just have to see for yourself. Back in 2012 and early 2013, I remember hearing a lot about a baseball player named Mike Trout. Being a Cubs fan (see: suffering), I didn’t get many chances to watch the Angels since they play late at night, and for me that’s prime writing time. But my […]Read more "Gillian Flynn’s DARK PLACES"
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"
A confession: I love lists. When I was an adolescent, one of the few books I would actually read (and read and read and read) was THE BOOK OF LISTS. I eventually branched out to THE BOOK OF LISTS TWO, which only fed the list-crazy beast inside of me. I never checked out THE BOOK […]Read more "Brian Keene Names DUST DEVILS the Fifth-Best Book of 2014"
Hi there. I’m Adam Cesare and I’m here because Jonathan invited me. Instead of trying to soullessly shill our books on each other’s blog, we figured we’d come up with quick musical playlists to pair with our recent releases from Samhain Publishing. My newest book, Exponential, is a cross-country giant monster story, a celebration of […]Read more "Adam Cesare Shares an EXPONENTIAL Playlist"
I don’t think I’ve ever used a semi-colon in a blog post title, and you know what? It felt good. Darn good. Liberating. A gleeful punctuational rebellion aimed at the new establishment’s anti-semi-colon prejudice. THEY CAN’T KEEP US DOWN!!!! *blinks, glances around* Okay, now that I’ve gotten that out of my system, what I’d like to […]Read more "Snow Falls in Indiana; THE NIGHTMARE GIRL Arrives at Your House"
Hey, friends. Short and sweet tonight. I have a new novel coming on Tuesday, and it’s getting rave reviews.
