Now this is too cool. One of our listeners has sent us this video made in honor of her favorite spoof commercial from Challenge 4!

Pinkabee says, “My first full animation! I got the audio from the Next Great Horror Writer contest at HorrorAddicts.net! The script for this one is by Jonathan Fortin (and was my favorite!)”

Thank you Pinkabee for sharing your fandom with us! And congratulations to Jonathan for winning “Pinkabee’s” adoration and praise.

#NGHW News: Episode 147

HorrorAddicts.net

Hello, my Horror Fiends!

This week I’m filling in for your favorite news reporter Adelise since she will be gone for a few weeks. This weeks contest was to create an audio-drama that was no shorter than five minutes but no longer than six minutes. This week’s contestants did a pretty good job. The judges loved the entries this week with a few hiccups. The main issue was that the contestants put visual cues in their audio-dramas. But, you can’t see anything in an audio-drama so it made no sense to add visual elements to this challenge. There were a few contestants that didn’t quite make it the five minutes and a few that ran over time. I actually fangirled this episode because I absolutely love audio-dramas and the cheesiness that goes along with the acting. With that being said, let’s get down to it!

This week’s guest judge was…

By The Fire: Episode 146: Challenge 11: Write a 5-6 minute Horror Audio Drama

HorrorAddicts.net

Hello, Addicts, how time flies, we are getting towards the end of The Next Great Horror Writer contest and we have another tough challenge to talk about. In episode 146 of the HorrorAddicts.net podcast, the challenge for The Next Great Horror Writer is to write a 5-6 minute horror audio drama. This is another one of those challenges that doesn’t sound too hard but really is. At first glance, 5-6 minutes doesn’t seem like a lot but when you write it out, that’s 6 pages of script. Contestants will be judged on creativity, entertainment value, and concept. Contestants have to come up with their own characters and own idea, they can’t use anyone else’s characters or established story. Winner will get their audio drama produced for the show.

One great thing about this contest is that the participants are really getting tested in every aspect of writing. They have had interviews…

#NGHW News Episode #146

HorrorAddicts.net

Hello, my Horror Fiends!

This week I’m filling in for your favorite news reporter Adelise since she will be gone for a few weeks. NGHW Episode 146 was a particularly hard episode due to a number of participants who didn’t do exactly what the judges were looking for. Don’t get me wrong, interviewing yourself and answering the questions as yourself is very difficult and this challenge has proven to be the hardest one yet! They did pull through, shining brightly in this dark, decrepit tunnel, and showed us what they’re made of.

Episode #146 brought us six semi-finalists in no particular order:

#1: Harry Husbands

#2: Adele Marie Park

#3: Jess Landry

#4: Naching T Casa

#5: Jonathan Fortin

#6: Daphne Strasert

This week’s mini-prize was cool in the sense that they will actually feel a part of the HorrorAddicts family – getting their interview published to the blog! I…

By The Fire: Episode 145: Challenge 10: Write a 1200-1500 word, non-fiction interview of yourself

HorrorAddicts.net

In episode 145 of the HorrorAddicts.net podcast, the challenge for The Next Great Horror Writer is to write a 1200-1500 word, non-fiction interview of yourself. The idea is to come up with questions and ask them how a reporter might ask them and then answer them as a professional writer may answer them. The contestants will be judged on interest of questions, interest of answers, and style. Does this sound like an easy challenge? Not really.

Though they are not being judged for it, the hardest part of this challenge may be selling yourself and your writing. In an interview, the author is the star of the show and the point is to get the readers of the interview to want to buy the author’s work. A writer has to wear several different hats, they may be good at writing fiction but can they sell the reader on their work by describing…

Winner Naching T. Kassa!

DIALOGUE WITH THE DARKER HALF
by Naching T. Kassa

Naching T. Kassa describes herself as a wife, mother, and horror writer. She resides in Valley, WA with her family and their dog, Dallas. Naching is a member of the Horror Writers Association and a contributor to The Demonic Visions book series. Recently, one of her poems was accepted into the HWA Poetry Showcase Volume 4.

But, what do we really know about this dark lady? Who is she and what makes her so darn scary? We asked Nani K, the person who knows her best, to shed a little light on the shadow.

Nani K: Good morning, Naching. Thank you for sitting down with me.

Naching: My pleasure.

Nani K: First off, I have to say this. You don’t look like a horror writer. You’re always smiling and you seem so sweet. Where…
