My name is Ryan and I'm unpublished and unagented. Just finished my first novel and beginning the process of looking in earnest. My interests branch out well beyond horror (just started on my second book in-between edits as a distraction and it's not horror in the slightest), but I figured I should begin here as it's where my first book would be best at home.
Really just looking forward to helping others strengthen their work (as well as my own) and getting to know some like-minded folks. Said hello in the "say hi" forum so I don't want to be long here, but figured I should say hello here as well.
I'm really interested in the roots of Horror more than a lot of the current trends I'm seeing with the genre which I think is reflected in my writing and what I read. Don't want to go on a tear, just giving a little bit of a background. Character building, I guess
If anyone is looking for readers or a crit-partner, etc., I'd be more than happy to help.
