Ep 176: Books in the freezer, & other horror stories
WSIRN often helps readers get out oftheircomfort zones, but today’s guest Mallory O’Meara is taking Anne out ofhers. Her wheelhouse is everything bizarre, paranormal, and downright scary. But digging past the surface differences, Mallory and Anne have a lot in common, especially the desire to understandhow an author DID that.
Today they’re chatting about the magic of rereading a favorite book, arguing with critics, how comfort-reading looks way different for different readers, Mallory’s pro tips for dealing with the post-scary-book jitters, and a lot more.
