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 Lisa Quigley to the show to celebrate the release of her debut novella, Hell’s Bells, which is out now through Unnerving as part of the Rewind or Die series! Hell’s Bells follows teenage friends Sasha, Hayley, Tiffany and Jessica who are into rock music and dabble in occult games. They’ve been friends for years, but lately they’ve found themselves drifting apart. One night when they get together, things go horrible wrong and they find themselves in a fight for their lives and their souls. Hell’s Bells is a blast to read and Lisa packs plenty of jaw-dropping, horrifying scenes that put a fresh spin on the Satanic Panic genre and is sure to delight any horror fan! Also, be sure to check out the Ladies of the Fright podcast that she hosts with Mackenzie Kiera. They’re one of our favorite podcasts and you’ll find plenty of writing advice and great interviews throughout the episodes they’ve posted so far.
Throughout the course of the episode, we talked about HELL’S BELLS, Ladies of the Fright, the history of chainsaws, tarot, writing methods, and so much more. We had a lot of fun recording this episode and hanging out with Lisa and we hope you guys enjoy it as much as we did!
