A Happy Birthday Vamplit! And some help needed please…

This week Vamplit Publishing turned a year old. Happy Birthday Vamplit!

Vamplit has been the platform from which Nicole and I have been given our first chance as writers. It is hard to believe it has only been going for a year; it seems to have accomplished so much already.  The books it has been publishing have been getting great reviews, (including our own of course!), and now there is a brand new site which you can find here, which looks amazing.  Also Vamplit’s bestselling novels are going to paperback this year, which is really exciting for the writers involved.

I am sure Vamplit’s second year will be as exciting and successful as it’s first!

On another topic we’ve been asked by Tina over at The Clean White Page to compile a list of modern horror writers we would recommend and it would be great if you guys could help.  Do you know of any contemporary horror writers you just couldn’t live without? If anyone has any suggestions it would be much appreciated – just leave us a comment below.

Something Wicked!


  1. Happy Birthday and HUGE thanks to my publisher and all my fellow Vamplit Writers -- the works are amazing and I'm so proud to be a part of this family!

  2. I second the shout-out that Nicole gave to Gaynor the great and her Vamplit stable!
    As for a horror writer that I simply could not live without...Michael Slade. When I read the first one, my young mind was officially blown! "Headhunter" is a must.

  3. Happy birthday to VamLit!

    My personal favorite (probably because I've met him and when you meet a horror fiction writer, you think, God, he's so not scarry),John Everson.

    John Everson's "Covenant" was his first novel and it won the "Bram Stoker Award" I think in '08, or '09. His sequil "Sacrifice" was just as chilling, and I had trouble getting through a few particular scenes. He's an excellent writer of the horror genre.

  4. Thanks James and Lorelei for your suggestions. I will have to get those books for myself as I am always on the look out for new stuff to read (I am a bit set in my ways). I will be sure to pass them on...
