“How the f**k did the New York Times find my book? Oops, can I say ‘f**k’?”
I recently hosted author (among other things…) TJ Tranchell on my podcast, Creative Ops. At one point, he was talking about how the NYT named one of his books the scariest book that takes place in Utah (they did one for every state, with folks like Stephen King being also on the list) and he went through his thought process at the time, saying, “[see title]”
I didn’t know about any of that when horror author Jennifer Soucy–a mutual friend–introduced me to TJ as a possible editor for my own story. (More on that another time.)
Before I made a decision to ask TJ to edit for me, I read his book, Tell No Man, which came out on the heels of his other story from the title quote, haha.
Tell No Man is a Mormon “dispossession” story, in the same spirit as some Catholic exorcism stories–but Mormon!
It was an amazing read. Loved every page.
So I hired him to edit my book. Then asked him to be on my podcast. The result was this:
Check out the show. See what classic American movie TJ is going to be a strange, awesome part of! And read the man’s books. They. Are. Faaaaantastic.
