Hey, friends. This is a big and busy writing weekend for me, so let’s get right to it. Here’s the cover of my upcoming novel CHILDREN OF THE DARK, courtesy of Sinister Grin Press and the incredible cover artist Matthew Revert: And just for giggles, here’s the full paperback wrap, courtesy of Matthew Revert (of course) […]Read more "CHILDREN OF THE DARK Cover Reveal"
Inspired by my friend and one of my favorite writers Brian Keene, I thought I should also write a post about who I am and where to start with my work if you’re not familiar with it. Jonathan Janz is the pen name for a husband/father, teacher, and author (in that order) who lives […]Read more "My Name Is Jonathan Janz, and I’m a Horror Writer"
If you didn’t listen to Brian Keene’s THE HORROR SHOW on Thursday night, you missed a doozy of an episode.

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"
