One Year of The Scariest Part

It’s hard to believe, but today marks the one-year anniversary of The Scariest Part! In that time, I’ve put the spotlight on 36 authors and their books, a selection ranging from first-timers to well known and bestselling authors, with books from micropresses and major publishing houses and everything in between. You can see all of them here.

It’s been a pleasure for me to host The Scariest Part on my blog, and I hope it’s been helpful to the writers who’ve taken part. It’s hard to gauge how effective these things are at driving sales, but if I helped get the word out to interested readers about books and authors they’d never heard of before then I consider it a success. Many thanks again to John Scalzi, Mary Robinette Kowal, and Chuck Wendig, whose own blog features were a big influence.

I’m happy to announce that The Scariest Part will continue! I look forward to seeing what its second year brings. I hope to bring in more filmmakers, comic book writers, and game creators, not just authors, but we’ll see how things develop. If you’re interested in being featured on The Scariest Part, check out the guidelines here.
