Writing One Page at a Time
When one of my authors came to me with this anthology, I was honored to have been thought of. A couple writers had dropped out, and they needed to fill the space back in. I would have never imagined myself to be compared alongside of some the authors in here as adequate and someone worth asking to contribute. I am very proud and very grateful for my submission being accepted into this wonderful anthology of female horror writers. I may run a company of my own, but it’s nice to know your writing skills are noticed and appreciated among the horror community. Thank you, David Owain Hughes, for asking me to contribute. It may have been a rushed, one-day written submission, but it made it in!!
The Man Behind the Mask, an anthology that celebrates women’s voices in the horror genre, is coming! Are you ready to sleep with the lights on? (Don’t know what happened, but I lost the cover shots when I added to this post, added to the comments.)
The ‘80s brought us the horror genre’s golden period: the best films, directors, cheesiness, soundtracks, and the sexiest scream queens. We especially held the women of those films close to our hearts. Still do.
Featuring all-female contributors, stories in The Man Behind the Mask anthology will include ‘80s-style clichés: masked killers, peepers, perverts, toolbox killers, killer clowns, window-watchers, sister-touchers, geeks, cheerleaders, big-breasted women, men with big knifes (to compensate for the size of something else), and, most importantly, heroines.
This one’s for you, ladies. It’s a thank you for all the great contributions you’ve added to the beloved horror genre over the years, and it’s sure to be a prick-teasing wet dream for the geeks of yesteryear.
The best part? All proceeds will go to breast cancer research!
Bolt the doors or run screaming into the woods. The man behind the mask is back, and his chainsaw is revving.
