Welcome to Writers After Dark. Why “after dark”? Well, that’s when most writers have the time to create worlds. Also we’d feel kind of guilty drinking before sundown. We’ve created a little intro video to tell you more and because creating stuff is what we do.

So if you are a writer, editor, book designer, or just someone who wants to be one or the other, then come on in and see what we've got. And don’t be a stranger. Leave comments so we can get to know you . . . and . . . well, because we’re writers and we basically get paid in comments,  so don’t be shy . . . or cheap.


Views, opinions, or bad advice . . . we try to write something for everyone. Whether you’re looking for one of SK’s pretty cheat sheets or Raymond’s rants, our article section is guaranteed to change your life. In fact, if the New York Times ever reviewed us, they’d no doubt use pull quotes like “Fascinating,” “Brilliant,” and even “Outstanding.”

The Writers’ Podcast has a really cool intro and the voiceover woman has a British accent so you’ll know right away that this is a high-class kind of show. TWP (as we call it) is all about the art, science, and psychology of storytelling. And because the two of us mostly disagree on everything, you’ll be sure to find an opinion you can agree with most weeks.

What writer or reader doesn’t want a larger library? Our Library has fine Corinthian leather chairs, mahogany tables, and that wonderful book smell. It also has a fine selection of helpful information and how-tos. Best of all, you can drink all the coffee you want while inside. You just have to bring your own.

Some days all you need is a little inspiration or a laugh. We’ve got you covered with our short and shareable writers' quotes, complete with pretty background images.

If horror and dark fiction is your thing, Nightmirrors is your place. As a dark fiction and horror story writer and lover, Raymond dives into the darkness and surfaces with all sorts of commentary on things that go bump in the night.

She is an official make-stuff-upp-er. Quirky, fun, and informative, SK has a few things to say about life, coffee, wine, and writing. If you like your views and opinions with a touch of snark and a helping of OCD, SK-isms won’t disappoint.
