    The “Oh God, Mother!” Recap

    The “Jewelry” Recap

    If you missed Day 1 of our #LadiesofHorrorFiction Instagram challenge recaps, be sure to check it out. We kicked off the challenge with the “Lady Stack” prompt.  You can find day 2 “Haunted” by clicking here. There were a lot of different books that came up for day three’s prompt of “Jewelry”.  Jewelry plays into a lot of horror stories. Whether it be a simple black velvet ribbon, a cursed gem, or an antique necklace or ring with a ghost attached, its presence is undeniable. Frankie (booksandbloodletting) posted Anne Rice’s ‘Blackwood Farm’, which is book 9 in her well-known Vampire Chronicles series. “Welcome to Blackwood Farm: soaring white columns, spacious drawing rooms,…

    The “Haunted” Recap

    If you missed Day 1 of our #LadiesofHorrorFiction Instagram challenge recaps, be sure to check it out. We kicked off the challenge with the “Lady Stack” prompt. There are several gorgeous stacks of lady books to be seen. Day 2 of our #LadiesofHorrorFiction challenge was the “Haunted” prompt. We had a lot of fantastic entries, and the discussions among the participants of the challenge picked up! This day also served as a good reminder that we have authors in our community who no longer identify as female. The entire Ladies of Horror Fiction team is dedicated to not only promoting authors who identify as female, but also protecting anyone who…
