I must admit, my novel isn't going to be like the rest of my past works. The differences are not only going to be in terms of length, but also of theme. You see, I write what I like to call 'Elemental Horror'. Essentially, that means I take all of the different facets of Horror from Gothic to Gore, Satanic, Erotic, and so on. One highly overlooked aspect of Horror is the theme of Sadness, or the tragedy, if you will. It carries with it the other side of Horror with themes such as emptiness, loss, pain, and such. Writers such as Sylvia Plath touched on the subject. In my novel, there wont be any Magic Rituals or mass slayings. But, there will be other topics keen to Horror such as Mental Illness, Automatic Writing, and, of course, the theme of Melancholy. I'm giving myself a deadline of 8 months. I don't know if I'm going to attempt other Novels after this one, I guess it all depends on how much I enjoy myself while writing it.
I am a horror fanatic as well as a writer. I consider my contemporary peers tame by my standards and hopefully one day, my works will set the standard!I have completed 30 short stories and have published 3 books of short stories. I have recently completed my second novel and am currently working on my third. I write what I consider 'Elemental' Horror, borrowing from genre's such as Gothic, Gore, the traditional ghost story, and the Occult. Hail Horrors!!
