July was a really busy month for the Ladies of Horror Fiction team! We moved servers this month so we had to work extra hard to meet our goals and celebrate our theme of Creatures! Thank you so much to our awesome guest post contributors Lee Murray, Betty Rocksteady, and Renee Miller, and to Audra and Ouija for showing us their shelves. We also received stories submissions from Sonora Taylor, Hailey Piper, Alyson Faye, and Chris Chesler. You ladies are amazing!
This month announced our partnership with Steve Stred and the first annual LOHF Writers Grant! Be sure to check out all of our posts from this month including how to apply for the grant.
