Episode 2.52 – Drinking the Kool-Aid with J. Danielle Dorn

Welcome to the Ink Heist podcast, which is devoted to dark genre fiction, featuring hosts Rich Duncan, Shane Douglas Keene, Laurel Hightower 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’re excited to welcome J. Danielle Dorn to the show to discuss their work including their debut novel, Devil’s Call, which is out now through InksharesDevil’s Call was our introduction to Dorn’s work and it’s a brutal novel that features a fresh spin on the revenge tale and features one of the most memorable protagonists in recent memory in Li Lian. With the recent surge in popularity of Horror Westerns, if Devil’s Call isn’t on your radar yet, this is the perfect time to pick up a copy and lose yourself in this gripping story. Regardless of the genre they’re writing in, Dorn’s brand of storytelling is not to be missed. If you’re new to their work, you can read some of their short stories via their website and check out their story “The Backwards Man” right here on Ink Heist.

Throughout the course of the episode, we talked about Devil’s Call, writing crime, werewolf novels and shared plenty of laughs! We had a blast with this episode and we think you will too.
