S.L. Schmitz & Daniel Arenson

S.L. Schmitz lives in Indian Trail, NC with her husband and son. There is an ever-changing menagerie of cats who graciously allow the family to share the house with them. In addition to reading and writing, she enjoys scrapbooking, drinking martinis, and making snarky comments about life and the universe. Feel free to email her at
Also, visit the website for updates on new novels and publications.

Q: What will e-readers like about your book?

Hopefully, they will like the way that I play with language. Words should have double meanings and multiple interpretations. I wrote this book for readers who like to question the world around them, especially people who enjoy dark re-interpretations of mythology and theology. According to a 5-star Amazon review from Bart Conrath, Let It Bleed “combines a variety of themes, some esoteric, such as Gnosticism, Lovecraft's mythos, and 80's punk and Goth culture with some bold descriptive passages”. In other words – something for everyone! The paperback version of Let It Bleed will launch in April 2011, for those that like the feel of real weight and paper in their hands.

Q: Why did you go indie?

Cause I’m quirky like that. I don’t know how to be anything but indie – I was a teenager right outside of Chicago during the 1980’s, and I will always have the punk rock aestheticism to follow the road less travelled.

Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?

Well, I think that Horror and Supernatural Dark Fiction and Mythpunk are all incestuous cousins, so please forgive me if my answer is cross-pollinated among the various genres. These days, I am really enjoying Gail Carringer and Theodora Goss. Other favorites include Clive Barker, F. Paul Wilson, Anne Rice during her Vampire years, and Martin Amis.





Daniel Arenson- The Gods of Dream

Q: What will e-readers like about your book?

People interested in dreams and nightmares will hopefully enjoy my novel.  The Gods of Dream is about Dream, a secret world where a pantheon of gods craft our dream, sending them into our sleep.  If you're interested in dreams, and enjoy fantasy literature, you will enjoy The Gods of Dream.

Q: Why did you go indie?

Mainly to keep my ebook prices low.  I love selling ebooks for $1-$5, which I think is an affordable and fair price.

Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?

Roger Zelazny, George R. R. Martin, Stephen King, and Tolkien are favorite authors who've inspired my work.
