M.C. St. John

Tell me about the setting you chose and how it influences your work.
 
The story functions because of the setting: a snow-steeped British village where Bernard and his family are at the mercy of the Richard Crawford, their landlord. With nowhere to go while the temperature plummets, Bernard musters the courage to confront Crawford about heating the estate, a decision that drives the rest of the story. While it might normally be considered cliché to say the setting is another living, breathing character, in this case I think we can make an exception. The winter storm, the architecture of the building, and the time period all play into how the story moves.

A question I'm asked most often by other writers is "What is your best advice for writers?" 
 
My answer is always the same: Persistence. Keep writing. Keep creating. Don't take rejection personally.

Nathaniel W. Phillips

What was the best money you ever spent as a writer?
 
The best money I've ever spent on writing was buying new books to read.  Genre books are important to get a finger on the pulse of what's going on, past and present.  But books outside my normal interests are equally important, so I don't box myself in. Good books are important as a guide on what to do and how to approach certain subjects.  But bad books teach valuable lessons, too.

Wondra Vanian

What would you like readers to take away from your story? 
 
I want people to finish the story wondering what’s real. Were Shannon’s dark wishes answered by an honest-to-goodness vampire? Or, did the mundane pressures of life finally get to her? Does she die? Is she dreaming? Readers have to make up their own minds because I’m not telling.

J.A.W. McCarthy

Which phrase are you most proud of in this story?
 
“I practice saying her name: Ella, Ella, Ellarolling around inside the velvet parts of my mouth, bouncing off stunted teeth and nesting in the back of my throat, Ella.”

Robert Petyo

When did you decide to take writing seriously?
 
In grade school. That’s when I became a Sherlock Holmes fan.

What is your favorite question you’ve been asked as a writer?
 
I don’t have a favorite but, when people learn I write short stories, they always ask ‘what do you write about?’ It’s a hard one to answer. It depends on the story or the situation, or my assessment of their intention or my personal mood. I usually respond that I write about the cathartic slaughter of my demons.

We have seventy-one different tales and fourteen original pieces of artwork inside of TRANSCENDENT. And we’re proud of this mammoth collection. We hope you come and celebrate its release with us.
