When your “kids” Danika and Mila grow up and go to Netflix: V-WARS

EIGHT YEARS AGO, Jonathan Maberry approached me and a handful of others with an invitation to contribute to a new shared world book he was creating that dealt with vampires. I still have the original e-mail – from May of 2011 – and of course I accepted the invite, but I never dreamed when the resulting book V-Wars was first published in 2012 that it would spawn three more prose volumes, a comic book series,…

The Pumpkin Man is now FREE to Amazon Prime subscribers!

The Pumpkin Man by John Everson

THE PUMPKIN MAN is a horror thriller featuring a Ouija Board and a mysterious killer who cuts off the heads of his victims and replaces them with pumpkins carved in the likeness of their faces. It was my fifth and final novel for Dorchester Publishing, and it’s a story I’ve always wanted to do a sequel to (but so far, never have quite found the time!). When it was first released, New York Times bestselling…

JohnEverson.com redesign: New Website for a New Year!

IT’S BEEN LONG overdue, but I’ve officially launched the JohnEverson.com redesign!  My site has had a few different looks over the years but the last time I gave it a full redesign was August 2008. The web has changed a lot since then, so JohnEverson.com really needed a facelift. The last design was my longest-lived look, thanks to the design help of Alina Ciejka Gonciarz and the awesome artwork from Travis Anthony Soumis (repurposed from…

A Horror Reunion – HorrorHound 2017

I HAVE GROWN to really love HorrorHound Weekend in Indianapolis as much as I love my own hometown Flashback Weekend Convention. I started going to HorrorHound a few years ago because my last publisher, Samhain Publishing, was a major sponsor and so they had a large space at the front of one of the exhibit halls… and six to eight of their authors hung out at the table all weekend signing books.  But when Samhain…
