Welcome to the Ink Heist podcast, which is devoted to dark genre fiction, featuring hosts Rich Duncan and Shane Douglas Keene and a whole bevy of authors and other interesting guests for your listening and enlightening pleasure. We are a very irreverent, often linguistically explicit broadcast so we highly recommend you use discretion when listening around easily influenced young ones or anyone who is easily offended. We would like to thank the band Secret Smoker for allowing us to use their song “Crushed by Air” to kick-off and finish the podcast.
This week, we had a great time talking with Damien Angelica Walters, whose gripping new novel, The Dead Girls Club, is out now through Crooked Lane Books. We talked to Damien extensively about The Dead Girls Club, the origin of The Red Lady, the benefits of outlining, the importance of female “coming of age” novels, her exciting Work in Progress, and so much more. We had a lot of fun talking with Damien, who is easily one of our favorite writers when it comes to both novels and short stories. Don’t be surprised to see The Dead Girls Club high on our “End of the Year” lists. Shane and I definitely look forward to having her on again in the future. Check out our conversation with Damien now right here on Ink Heist or on your favorite streaming service.
