Heather Elizabeth King

Author of Dark Fiction

Welcome to my online home.

If you're like me, there's nothing you like better than a good read. I grew up with five older sisters, and they all loved horror movies. As a result, I was introduced to all things scary at a young age. Some of my favorite memories are of gathering around the television on a Saturday night with my family to watch a scary movie on HBO. I'd seen The Howling, Evil Dead, and Friday the 13th, all before I was old enough to date. It was only natural that when I started writing my own stories, they'd be paranormal.

Okay. Not completely paranormal. I also write romance...with monsters, and urban fantasy...with even more monsters, and horror with...you get the idea! If you like a good monster tale as much as I do, browse my pages and check out a few of my books. The book description says whether it's a romance, urban fantasy, or horror.

Thanks for stopping by!

Writing with Soul

Writing with soul. That seems like an easy thing to do, but it's a lot harder than it seems. Stephen King (who everyone knows is my favorite author) and JK Rowling have mastered infusing soul into the books they write. That's one of the reasons their books sell so well. For JK Rowling, she's not w…

Plotter or Pantser?

That's the question asked in writer circles around the world. I am a proud, card carrying, plotter.

My plotting method is a bit crazy, but it works for me. First, I plot out the beginning of the book. I go as far as I can easily get. Once I'm happy with what I have, I write…

Re-calibrating

Since I've gone indie, one thing that I find myself doing a few times a year is....

reviewing then re-calibrating if necessary. What I mean by that is, I step back and look at all of my stats and decide if I like what I see. If I do like what I see, I continue doing what I'm doing. If I don't like …

What's with the free books!!!

  •  

    One of the things people often ask indie authors has to do with book pricing. They wanna know what's with all the free books. The thought is that if an author sells a book for $.99 or (gasp) gives it away for free, it's because they don't think the story is worth much. But that couldn't be f…

The perfect and inexpensive date night


Movie Night

I am an unrepentant and sappy romantic. I love all things that have to do with romance. That goes double for romantic dates, which probably isn't surprising since I write romance. But there seems to be a disconnect somewhere between men and women. Women …
