Media Kit - rev 04
  Suspense Magazine is going past the normal literary magazine that just prints
stories.  We are becoming the insider source for everything that is suspense/thriller/
mystery/horror.  We bring the reader closer to the author by interviewing them in a way
that shows more of their personal side.  We have been able to interview many of the top
bestselling authors of all time and continue to reach out to bring them all in one place.  
Our goal does not stop there however, we are looking to help the "new" author, the one
that people don't know to give them a platform to showcase their writing.  We also go
behind the scenes with movie producers, actors and directors.  We have begun to
reach out to the European market and will continue to stretch out to all corners of globe,
again bringing the suspense/thriller world in one place.  

All back issues are currently available in electronic form. Please email requests for
copies to
editor@suspensemagazine.com. The latest edition is available for immediate
view by clicking on the current month image.

We have taken
Suspense Magazine on the road to different events and conferences, to
better enhance our magazine.  We have started a radio station, Suspense Radio, where
you will hear different short stories, interviews with the authors, audio book clips and
other top story productions.
