Authors of PHP Anthology Silver Moon Bloody Bullets joined me on Page Readers
What a great interview today! I think this was a record for the number of authors calling in and the number of people participating in the chat room.
Today I talked with some of the talented authors who participated in the latest release from Pill Hill Press, "Silver Moon, Bloody Bullets, An Anthology of Werewolf Tails".
Jessica Weiss, editor of this collection joined me first to talk about her role in putting this book together. She had to read through over 200 submissions and make the hard decision as to which ones would make it into this book. From 200 to 25, and she tells us that it was not easy! There were so many great stories that there is talk of a Book 2.

A few of the authors who joined us on the show today:
D. Nathan Hilliard...Horror, fantasy, and house-husbandry - a renaissance man for the 21st century. He lives in North Houston with his wife, kids, and cats...while trying to craft the perfect short story. Nathan was also my guest on Page Readers to discuss his novel "The Ways of Khrem".
Scott M. Sandridge learned how to write through hard work, trial-and-error, and the occasional writers' workshops. His fiction has appeared in Mindflights, Ray Gun Revival, Silver Blade, Chimeraworld #6 (New World Disorder), and The Four Horsemen: An Anthology of Conquest, War, Famine, & Death. His story, “Sleep Paralysis,” was a top ten finisher in the 2008 Preditors & Editors Readers Poll for the category of Short Story – Horror.
Carl Hose lives in Georgia with his wife Marcee and their children. His work includes short horror stories, a novel, and four screenplays. Links to his work can be found at his website, Writer's Inkwell
J. Leigh Bailey resides in Chicago, IL. When she's not writing, she's reading. She loves the paranormal and prefers it when the monsters are good, the princes are evil and the ending are happy. The shortstory "Runaway" in the book Silver Moon, Bloody Bullets: an Anthology of Werewolf Tales is her first published work. She can be found at http://www.storiesofthedrakon.blogspot.com/
Ever since she was young, author Kiki Howell has loved to listen to a well-woven tale with real characters, inspired plots, and delightful resolutions. Kiki could spend hours lost in a book, and soon she knew that creating lives, loves, and losses with just words had to be the greatest thing that she could do. To that end, she pursued her study of literature and writing, earning a bachelor’s degree in English.
Kiki is now a multi-published author of magical romances, both sensual and erotic, with such publishers as Pill Hill Press, Whiskey Creek Press and eXcessica Publishing. She resides in the Midwest with her incredibly handsome and talented, singer/songwriter husband and two children. When she is not writing, she is spending time with her family, reading, baking or knitting.
Kelly Metz enjoys reading, writing, photography, her family and annoying her baby brother, who, while younger, is now over a foot taller than her and can punch much harder than when he was little. She spends her free time engaging in various torture activities, demon summonings, zombie raisings and spell casting. And writing when she gets bored with those. While having grown up at the Jersey Shore (yes, THAT Jersey Shore), she currently lives in Pennsylvania with her husband who's thinks he's thirteen, her retired father and twelve pets (two dogs, one cat, two snakes, five turtles and two step-children. Don't worry; the kids don't sleep in the cages. Much.)
Fantastic job everyone!
