Readers Digested has prided itself as, not only a celebration of horror and its content creators, but a way to spotlight them. Since its inception, the brand has interviewed seven artists: – including director Gregory Plotkin of Paranormal Activity fame and Robert Englund, actor known for his work as Freddy Krueger.

Readers Digested was founded by McConnaughay, and, on many counts, is run solely on his part. However, Readers Digested is not a single person’s blog page and hopes to reach newfound heights in every proceeding month. Since operation, McConnaughay has collaborated with writers like Todd Rigney (writer of the .found novel – now a feature film), continued his collaboration with Scott Moore (writer of The Wardens) and Rebeccah Grace, whose works will be seen in an upcoming Readers Digested Anthology novel called Rabies & Germs. McConnaughay has also brought writer John Clarke on-board, whose reviews and opinion can be seen heavily across the website’s main page. His participation in the Anthology is also expected. Other reviews have also contributed, such as Adrian Anna LeeMister Fabulist, and Mercy Grim.
