Interview on Whispers in the Dark Podcast for Journals of Horror

Terror Train podcast, Steel Deliverance reading

————————————-

Thank you to all the wonderful editors, site managers and fellow bloggers I’ve dealt with this year who strive to put something special into the hands of horror readers and fans out there. It’s been a pleasure working with you all. 

I have about 25 written, unpublished, horror short stories that I’ll be looking to find placement for this year, as well as, many ideas for articles and blog posts that will appear here and with other sites on the web. I have yet to finish my first novel but the first draft is nearly complete. I hope to get it into the hands of some BETA readers within the first six months of 2015. 

To all my fellow writers out there, good luck on your endeavors, and best wishes in achieving all you goals for 2015. 

Michael Thomas-Knight

When does a writer become an author?

When does a writer become an author?

One of the advantages to having numerous books on the market with my short stories in them is that people start to call me an author. They start to think of me as an author and they start to treat me like an author, too. I guess I’m becoming an author 🙂

At Jim’s Pyre’s Dead Letter Office, Jim interviews numerous authors at different stages of their career. I’m humbled, being one of the authors that Jim has found to interview. I share the honor and company of outstanding wordsmiths such as, Tim Waggoner, Mercedes Yardley, Alex S Johnson, and Glenn Rolfe.

Thanks so much Jim!

All aboard, Terror Train

From NYC to Chattanooga, through winding paths and cityscapes, it grinds the rails and shatters the dead of night. It comes, stopping at stations along the way, to steal the screaming souls of the living and the dead and transport them to hell… Terror Train

Come along for the ride, if you dare!

I am proud to announce the release of Terror Train from JWK Fiction, a collection of horror stories sharing the title’s theme – they all take place on, or are concurrent to a train. Includes the short story by (me) Michael Thomas-Knight, Steel Deliverance.

Best of all I share this space with noted writers and wordsmiths such as:

William F. Nolan, Roger Cowin and William Cook.

I love themed anthologies and having grown up in a town that had a railway running through it, I had witnessed death on the rails more than once. This is one of my favorite themes and I’m thrilled to have my story, “Steel Deliverance” accepted into this publication.

If you are so inclined, check out these horrific tales on locomotive rails, a collection that is sure to terrify and entertain, take the journey with us, on the Terror Train.
