A Panel and a Publication

I’m looking forward to talking about horror with fellow panelists Christa Carmen, Sara Tantlinger, Nicole Willson, Jessica Guess, and Zoje Stage at the online event Females of Fright! The panel will be moderated by award-winning author Gwendolyn Kiste. The panel starts at 8 pm (EST) on Friday, February 12. You can register here: http://ow.ly/ZyKp50DtEFC. I hope you’ll join us. It’s going to be so much! (Note: The panel is archived at HWA’s YouTube channel.)

And, if you’d like to hear Gwendolyn Kiste read one of her stories, check out the Valentine’s Day special at HWA COS. On February 14, recordings of readings prepared for last year’s Bloody Valentine event will be available for everyone to enjoy. It’s a power-packed roster including Linda D. Addison, L.C. Barlow, Andrea Blythe, Gwendolyn Kiste, Kate Jonez, Sarah Read, Marge Simon, and Mercedes M. Yardley. Also, each week during Women in Horror Month, members of HWA COS will be reading their work for the virtual edition of A Bloody Valentine. This year’s line-up includes J. A. Campbell, Claire L. Fishback, Shannon Lawrence, and Angela Sylvaine.

I’m also excited to share the gorgeous cover for the StokerCon 2021 Souvenir Anthology, edited by Josh Viola. As always, Hex Publishers puts out a gorgeous book with The Phantom Denver Edition. StokerCon 2021 has moved to a virtual platform this year, but we will have the opportunity to meet up again in Denver at StokerCon 2022! The Phantom Edition of this year’s anthology includes my interview with past HWA president Lisa Morton. It was definitely a thrill to see my name on the back cover along with so many incredible writers and poets. I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy!
