Writing Community Chat Show

Writing Community Chat Show

By Writing Community Chat Show
The Writing Community Chat Show is focused on helping authors grow and develop as well as give them the spotlight to explain their story and work. We connect indie authors with those who have been doing it professionally for decades. We try to give the best insight into the careers of professionals and hopefully that can give you the perfect tip to reach you own goals. This is done with two main shows a week. Indie Wednesdays Chris and Chris discuss indie writing issues before an indie author interview and Friday is a bit more fun followed by an interview with an established guest.

Dimas Rio who is the author of Who's there! See his cover on our show that is now on youtube! CREEPY SLOW BURN ASIAN HORROR IN THE VEIN OF "THE RING" A woman went missing a week before her wedding. A man recalling his nightmarish encounter with the devil. Letters sent from beyond the grave. A call from loved ones who since have passed. Limbs that have a mind of their own. These ghostly tales of revenge, greed, and desperation writhe and squirm in the dark corners of modern day Indonesia. Rich in cultural undertones that are uniquely Asian, these stories are in equal part grotesque and poetic, irreverent and spiritual, unusual and universal. Drawing on local folk tales of vengeful banshees, dusk-dwelling monsters, and other forms of the undead, this collection of five short stories will transport readers to the deep, dark abyss where demon forever resides: the human mind.
