Where do you find recommendations? Are there any Horror Spotlight books that have been recommended to you that you loved?

Mostly Twitter, really.  I joined Twitter to talk about books and managed to find a community that has actually read many of the same books as me, which was rare before, so when something new is recommended, I listen. Also, I am in two book clubs and I frequently do buddy reads, both of which have given me plenty of books to pick up that I would not have heard of otherwise.

A few that were recommended that I loved are Geek Love by Katherine Dunn, The Fourth Whore by EV Knight, An Unkindness of Ghosts by Rivers Solomon, and Flowers from The Sea by Zin E Rocklyn.

Where do you prefer to shop for books?

I try to mostly buy my books either direct from the publisher or author, if they are small/independent.  And I frequent my local indie bookstore Whitty Books, which has an amazing horror section. I mostly get my graphics and comic books from Comix Experience.   

Are there any upcoming Horror Spotlight releases you're excited about?

House of Hunger by Alexis Henderson

Leech by Hiron Ennes

Soft Places by Betty Rocksteady

The Spite House by Johnny Compton

The Vineyard, Written by Brian Hawkins, Art by Sami Kivelä, Colors by Jason Wordie, Letters by Taylor Esposito


I am sure there are so many more, but I sometimes have a hard enough time keeping up with current books.  Future me can discover more and it gives her something to look forward to.

Thank you for joining us, Teresa! Our TBR piles also thank you!
