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.
Well, what can we say? We had no guest this week so thought we wouldn't let people down so we popped on for a chat and news update. We forgot most of the news and spent over 2 hours laughing and chatting with our amazing fans. It's safe to say there may be a few sore heads the next day. There were a few book-related questions but the majority of the talk was silly and fun!

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.
CHRISTOPHER MOORE is this weeks Moonlight Sessions guest!
Christopher Moore is an American writer of absurdist fiction. He grew up in Mansfield, OH, and attended Ohio State University and Brooks Institute of Photography in Santa Barbara, CA.

Inheriting a humanism from his love of John Steinbeck and a sense of the absurd from Kurt Vonnegut, Moore is a best-selling author with major cult status. (Goodreads extract)
Christopher Moore is the author of 15 previous novels: Practical Demonkeeping, Coyote Blue, Bloodsucking Fiends, Island of the Sequined Love Nun, The Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove, Lamb, Fluke, The Stupidest Angel, A Dirty Job, You Suck, Fool, Bite Me, Sacré Bleu, The Serpent of Venice, and Secondhand Souls.
