    What We’ve Been Reading #16

    The Ladies of Horror Fiction have a few books to recommend! Winnie by Katy Michelle Quinn Winnie and Colt forever. Winnie is Colt’s one and only, Colt is Winnie’s true love.

But one day Winnie finds that she is not a rifle but in fact a woman. Can Winnie keep the sparks between them ignited, even if she isn’t the gun of his dreams? What happens if she can’t?

    Here’s the latest round-up of our most recent LOHF reads! Have you read any of them yet? She’s Lost Control edited by Elizabeth Jenike The female voice is strong, and will not be controlled.  This book, by its very nature, is doing important work: giving women writers a platform and prioritizing their voices over the cacophony of men that have dominated the field for so long. This is not meant to start an argument over whose voice is more important or stronger or holds more weight—this book is only meant to continue the conversation of why we need diverse mindsets and points of view in the literary community. And as the…

    Guest Post: La Llorona: Of Fear, Demons and Motherhood by Violet Castro

    La Llorona: Of Fear, Demons and Motherhood V.Castro I remember lying in bed with the sheet pulled to my chin and eyes intently watching the fan propped in my open bedroom window. The terror within and the heat of the Texan summer, even at night, caused me to sweat profusely. There was still no way I would let go of that sheet, possibly the only thing that kept her away from me. I hated the sound of the fan because what if she was out there. How would I know if she was approaching? But it was too hot that evening to close the window or not have a fan…
