100+ Places to Market Your Horror Book

Ah, horror. The overwhelming suspense factor, the fear of what comes next, the feeling that someone’s watching you while you try to turn to the next page to see what happens to the characters. Will they die? Will they survive? What exactly are the horrors that hound them every step of the way? The horror genre is irresistible like that – though the stories themselves terrify, the question of what comes next (or perhaps who dies next?) keeps us going.
