So I did this online course with Jack Ketchum, who is one of my heroes, and on the way I churned out a piece called ‘Good Help’ which prompted the man himself to say:
“Karen, you scare me.”
By far the highest praise I’ve ever been given in this crazy genre where a phrase like that is actually a compliment!
Anyway, I sent it off to Shock Totem and THEY SAID YES!
Shock Totem is by far the highest-rated publication to ever accept something of mine to date. And if you’re reading this, and you don’t know Shock Totem, then STOP reading this and get acquainted as quickly as you can: http://www.shocktotem.com/
‘Good Help’ appeared in Issue #9. For more information, or to order a copy from the ST site, go here.
