Horror is a genre that has launched the careers of many bestselling authors like Stephen King and Dean Koontz.

A good horror novel creates a compelling and frightening story that draws readers in and never lets them go until the story ends. A great horror novel sticks in readers minds for many years to come.

If you’ve written a good horror novel and you want to get your book traditionally published, you’ll need a great literary agent to represent you, help you hone your writing craft, and sell your book to a major publisher. You can also check out our guide on how to get your book published.
