October is Vampire Author Month (according to me), so in episode 38 of Working Title podcast, I chat with horror writer, Peggy Christie, about her love of vampires and her explanation of their literary longevity.
The Scribbled Victims tells a familiar tale of the vampire tradition in a way that’s different, emotionally compelling, and doesn’t shy from the horror of the vampire condition. I appreciate that Tomoguchi’s vampires need human blood to survive, though as the author shows, one cannot live on blood alone.
October is Vampire Authors Month (according to me), so in episode 37 of Working Title podcast, I speak with Robert Tomoguchi, author of The Scribbled Victims, which he first wrote as a screenplay, and is now a vampire series.
We take a peak at script writing and pitching to producers, his tips for dialogue and plotting, experimenting with Instagram to reach readers, redesigning his book cover and more.
