A New Community for Horror Authors and a Mastermind Group.
Dear Horror Writers,
Big things are happening in the horror writing community this year, and we want to ensure you’re a part of it.
Firstly, we’re thrilled to introduce you to our Shadows & Ink Heartbeat community—a dedicated space for horror authors like you. Join now using this special link to the free tier. This tier is recommended for beginning authors or an author who doesn’t have a book out yet. Over the next few days, we’re going to add a bunch of workshops (already a few there to dive into). The $10-a-month tier is for authors who either have a book out or one coming sometime this year. We’ll help you with your book launch, building a mailing list, reviews, beta-readers, etc.
There is also an On Writing book called Shadows & InkVol.1 out on paperback and Kindle, written by Crystal Lake Founder & CEO, Joe Mynhardt. It’s more than just a guide, though. It’s a journey into mastering horror fiction. Do take note that the book has nothing to do with the Heartbeat community. It’s not a fan page for the book. The book’s purpose is to promote the group and help guide authors.
But there’s more. Become part of our Shadows & Ink Mastermind group. This group offers in-depth learning, networking, and personal growth opportunities through Zoom meetings every two weeks. Members consist of professionals from various horror fields, including fiction, non-fiction, marketing, publishing, editing, comic books, screenwriting, filmmaking, and gaming. It’s a bargain at an annual fee of $150 (which also gives you full access to the $10-a-month tier on Heartbeat, saving you $120!). If you prefer, take advantage of our payment plan with three $50 installments.
Mastermind Group Info: Join our Mastermind group, a haven for horror authors seeking not just to enhance their writing, but to grow holistically as individuals and professionals. We meet online every two weeks, creating a space where collaboration fuels not only your literary prowess but also your personal development. This group is about more than honing your craft; it’s about evolving as a well-rounded author and an exceptional human being. As a member, you’ll gain invaluable insights through peer learning, expand your network with industry contacts, and receive robust support for your book launches, including the collective power of a mailing list we build together. In our meetings, you’ll find a community committed to mutual growth. We’ll invest time in each other’s careers, sharing skills, expertise, and motivation. Together, we’ll step out of our comfort zones, challenging and supporting each other to reach new heights. This is your chance to join a group where being a great writer is just the beginning. Let’s grow together, both in our writing and in our journey as individuals. Join us and redefine what it means to be a horror author.
Here’s that link again. If you first want to chat with the mind behind the madness about whether the Mastermind is for you, book a time slot on Joe Mynhardt’s calendar to set up a Zoom chat, free of charge! It’s not recommended for absolute beginners, but we’ll get you there eventually.
Don’t miss out on these opportunities to enhance your horror writing journey. We look forward to welcoming you to our community and hearing about your writing success.
Have a great 2024. We really hope you’ll consider Shadows & Ink as part of your journey this year. You won’t regret it.
