I would like to begin by sincerely thanking Laurie Love for featuring my books this month and for inviting me to write a guest post for her blog. It’s always an honor and a privilege to be asked to do so.
I get out of bed every morning because I believe in giving. I believe in making the lives of others better. I do this by creating art that makes life more enjoyable, rejuvenates the spirit, and connects us through universal human experiences. And I happen to tell great stories that are dark, emotional, and engaging.
I’m a disciple of Stephen King and I grew up reading his stories. If you enjoy King, you’ll enjoy my books as well. I do things in a slightly different way. It seems to be how I’m wired. I’ve posted my phone number on my website, on my social media profiles, and in the back of all of my books. Don’t believe it? Call 216.245.8476 and leave me a message and I’ll call you back. I respond to every message I receive whether it be via voice-mail, Facebook, Twitter, email, carrier pigeon, or smoke signals (maybe not the last two). I don’t have an agent, or a handler, or a PR person. I don’t know if I’ll always be able to respond personally to every message, but I can now so I do. I’m more interested in connecting with the right readers, not the most. You can get to know me better on my website jthorn.net or connect with me on various social media platforms, although I’m most active on Twitter @JThorn_ and Facebook.
If you want to talk, call me. I’ll call you back.
