LOTF 66: Honing Craft & Mentoring Writers | Richard Thomas

Ladies of the Fright

We on a bit of hiatus for January as we prepare for our three year podcast anniversary and our 2021 podcast line up. We’re reformatting the show for the new year and can't wait to share more on that soon! In the meantime, we’re releasing the last of our interviews recorded in 2020. We also want to point you to our blog space, where we've been posting a lot more written author interviews as well as some reprinted short fiction. For the moment, we are open to fiction reprint submissions, and in particular, we want to raise stories back from the dead. We want stories that were originally published in now-defunct venues. Currently we aren’t able to pay authors but we want that to change. Therefore, we are hosting a Patreon challenge! When we hit 30 patrons, we pledge pay $25 per reprint. We want to keep increasing what we pay so we foresee another Patreon challenge in our future. Baby steps! With that said, we've been making some changes to our podcast tiers. We offer cool rewards at every tier, including early, ad-free episodes; bonus written, audio, and video content from special guest authors (this month we’ve got a special video from author Gwendolyn Kiste!); and the Patrons-Only podcast LOTF After Dark. Head on over to patreon.com/ladiesofthefright for all the gory details! One final bit of housekeeping: We are hosting a live three year anniversary special event on Sunday, January 31, at 10:30pm Eastern. We'll be joined by special guest co-host Kathryn E. McGee, horror author and host of the Skeleton Hour webinar series and The Thing in the Labyrinth Horror Bookclub.  We'll reflect on the past three years, share our vision for the podcast's future, answer questions, and party. New logo reveal + surprise pop in guests + giveaways! Come celebrate three years with us. Live event on Zoom - register today. Show Notes We are thrilled to bring you this conversation with author, editor, teacher, and overall horror advocate Richard Thomas. Richard spent twenty years in advertising before coming back to writing. Since then he’s been an author, editor, teacher, and publisher. He’s the award-winning author of three novels, three short story collections, two novellas, and over 150 short stories. In addition to teaching at Storyville, he’s also taught at the University of Iowa, LitReactor.com, and Story Studio Chicago. We really loved this conversation with Richard. If you have any new year’s resolutions to dedicate more time to writing, we can’t think of any better way to commit than to sign up for a class with Richard over at Storyville! There are still spots in his Contemporary Dark Fiction classes. He even has one set for summer, May-Aug on London/UK/GMT time which he’s  never done before. It’s 50% sold so check it out if you’re into it. And he also has one running in September. Head on over to storyvilleonline.com for more info!  Find Richard: Twitter | Website | Storyville
