    Shelf Edition: Audra & Ouija

    This month our guests for Shelf Edition are Audra and Ouija, or you may know them as @ouija.doodle.reads! Audra is an avid bookworm and editor who spends the rest of her free time watching horror movies and kickboxing, and Ouija is a goldendoodle with a nose for good fiction, haunted houses, and tennis balls.  Book title links will bring you to the book page at Goodreads. Do you have any recent favorite LOHF books?  My favorite discovery of this year has been The Driver’s Seat by Muriel Spark.

    LOHF Shelf Edition: Gloria McNeely

    This month, we have our first writer for Shelf Edition! Gloria McNeely is an Irish horror writer, reviewer, bookstagrammer, and horrorlesque performer to boot. Currently querying her own demon possession novel, she’s always looking for more books to review on her dark fiction blog. Do you have any recent favorite LOHF books? Yes, I’ve recently picked up some horror anthologies edited by women that I’m excited to read. ‘Irish Ghost Stories’ edited by Rosemary Gray, and ‘Phantoms’ edited by Marie O’Regan. I think we look for stories written by women a lot and forget to support women who edit anthologies, publish horror etc. Recently I’ve read ‘Something Borrowed Something Blood…
