TIH 141 Betty Rocksteady on Weird Fiction, Research, and Outlining

In this podcast Betty Rocksteady talks about weird fiction, research, outlining, and much more.

About Betty Rocksteady

Betty Rocksteady is your everyday Canadian weirdo with a leaning towards the macabre and grotesque. Besides writing violent and sexual and just plain weird fiction, she does black and white horror illustration. Her debut novella, Arachnophile, was part of Eraserhead Press’ 2015 New Bizarro Authors Series. If you’ve been dying to read about a man who falls in love with a giant spider, this is probably the book for you. Her short fiction has been published in Eternal Frankenstein, Lost Signals, Turn to Ash, and DOA III. Find out more at www.bettyrocksteady.com or connect on twitter @bettyrocksteady.
