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 have the opportunity to welcome Sonora Taylor to the show to celebrate the release of her latest novel, Seeing Things, which is out now! All three of us here at Ink Heist LOVED this book and highly recommend you check it out. It follows teenager Abby Gillman as she discovers she can suddenly see the dead after witnessing some frightening visions in her school. We don’t like to delve into spoilers here at Ink Heist, so that’s about all we can tell you without spoiling the reading experience. But trust us when we say that Seeing Things is a gripping read packed with terrifying scenes, surprises, and excellent characters that you’ll definitely want to add to your bookshelves.
Throughout the course of the episode, we talked about switching between short fiction and novel, Seeing Things, writing out of chronology, haunted schools, ghost stories, cocktails, Fright Girl Summer, video games, Someone to Share My Nightmares, ‘Tis Better To Want, romance and horror, self-publishing tips, and so much more. We had a lot of fun recording this episode and learned a lot from Sonora and we hope you guys enjoy it as much as we did!
