    E54: Turning A Famous Ghost Story into A Novel with Celso Hurtado

    E54: Turning A Famous Ghost Story into A Novel with Celso Hurtado

    Today, is a special episode from my final live program at Lark and Owl Booksellers in Georgetown, Texas. I invited author, Celso Hurtado, to talk about his award winning book, “The Ghost Tracks.” He won the International Latino Book Award for this story that takes place around the famous haunted San Antonio train tracks. He answers questions both about his book and the legend that inspired it. You can order signed copies of “The Ghost Tracks” from Lark and Owl Booksellers by emailing them at salesfloor@larkandowlbooksellers.com or use my bookshop.org link to support the show, as well as independent bookstores nationwide. That’s at bookshop.org/shop/sheworeblack. You can also help out the show by following She Wore Black on Twitter and Instagram, and leaving me a review wherever you get your podcasts.

    E53: Tim McGregor, Comic Books and "Taboo in Four Colors"

    E53: Tim McGregor, Comic Books and "Taboo in Four Colors"

    Today, I’ve invited author, Tim McGregor, to talk about his new novella, “Taboo in Four Colors,” that takes place in the comic book industry of the 1960s and 70s. It’s a gruesome and compelling look at how far two people will go for love. The second half of our conversation does contain spoilers, though, if you want to skip that part until you’ve read the book. You can order Tim’s books using my bookshop.org link to support the show, as well as independent bookstores nationwide. That’s at bookshop.org/shop/sheworeblack.

    E52: Rachel Harrison and the Fangs of Female Rage

    E52: Rachel Harrison and the Fangs of Female Rage

    Today, I’ve invited author, Rachel Harrison, to talk about her book, “Such Sharp Teeth,” but I love all her work so we really chat about all of it. This is one of my most cherished conversations because we talk so honestly about how her work reflects the female experience. We dive deep into what that looks like through her stories, revealing the complexity behind her charm. I want to issue a content warning. We address assault and the emotional aftermath starting about 14 minutes in, so if you want to skip ahead 5 minutes, we get to other feminist topics as well as things that make us laugh. It’s a conversation I really needed and I’m so glad I get to share it with you. You can order her books using my bookshop.org link to support the show, as well as independent bookstores nationwide. That’s at bookshop.org/shop/sheworeblack. You can also help out the show by following She Wore Black on Twitter and Instagram, and leaving me a review wherever you get your podcasts.

    E51: The Craft of Writing Gothic Romance with Diana Biller

    E51: The Craft of Writing Gothic Romance with Diana Biller

    Today, I’ve invited author, Diana Biller, to talk about the craft of writing gothic romance. Her book, The Widow of Rose House, became an instant hit with gothic romance fans because she combined beloved tropes with new ideas. All of her work is smart, sexy, funny and enchanting, and I learned a lot from our conversation. We do talk about writing sex, so you may want earbuds if you’re listening near children or co-workers. You can order her books using my bookshop.org link to support the show, as well as independent bookstores nationwide. That’s at bookshop.org/shop/sheworeblack. You can also help out the show by following She Wore Black on Twitter and Instagram, and leaving me a review wherever you get your podcasts. Thanks for joining me today.

    E49.5: Telling True Ghosts Stories - A Live Podcast Interview with Leanna Renee Hieber and Andrea Janes

    E49.5: Telling True Ghosts Stories - A Live Podcast Interview with Leanna Renee Hieber and Andrea Janes

    Today I bring you a bonus episode about a wonderful nonfiction book, “A Haunted History of Invisible Women: True Stories of America’s Ghosts.” It’s one of the best books I’ve read about ghosts in American history and regional myth, with thoughtful analysis that centers women as both subject and storytellers. I did this as part of a series of “live” podcast episodes I was invited to do at Lark and Owl Booksellers in Georgetown, Texas as part of their October programming, so you’ll occasionally hear customers in the background. I was also sick during production, so I was tuning in via zoom, but this is really a wonderful conversation that I’m proud of and I can’t wait to hear your feedback on both the episode and the book. You can order “A Haunted History of Invisible Women” using my bookshop.org link to support the show, as well as independent bookstores nationwide. That’s at bookshop.org/shop/sheworeblack. You can also help out the show by following She Wore Black on Twitter and Instagram, and leaving me a review wherever you get your podcasts. Thanks for joining us today.

Thanks for joining us today.

A Dark Delight!

This podcast haunts the intersection of so many great genres. Agatha is intelligent and passionate, creating a space for conversations that find a balance of being academic & historical and always downright delightful. I’ve learned a ton from this podcast and highly recommend it to anyone with a penchant for the dark side of literature!

Really Enjoying This Podcast!

I’m surprised that I only stumbled on this podcast through another one (maybe Talking Scared?) It offers a lot to the listener. Agatha (perfect name!) is extremely knowledgeable and knows her literary topics inside and out. I’d equate this podcast to Talking Scared, and Know Fear in its deep literary critiques. Agatha also knows how to take into context other parts of the societal landscape at the time of the author’s writing. So important. I’ve also enjoyed her tidbits about marketing books to readers, helping readers find the ‘right’ books, etc. Interesting ‘behind the scenes’ of those who work with books. My only small suggestion would be fewer ‘yeah’, ‘uh huh’ and ‘yes’ interjections while the guest is speaking. Her tone is conversational which is very enjoyable, but the interjections can get distracting. Great podcast!
