    2021 Resolutions: LOHF Author Edition

    2020 has been a mixed bag for us all, hasn’t it? Last New Years feels like it happened a decade ago instead of just 12 normal months. I’m sure I’m not the only one ready to say goodbye to the last year, and welcome the next one with open arms! In our excitement to prepare for the year ahead, we thought it’d be fun to ask a few authors in the horror community to contribute some of their bookish or writing related New Years Resolutions for us to share with all of you! From blogging to new books, let’s see what some of our favorite #LadiesOfHorrorFiction have planned for 2021!…

    Thanksgiving 2020: Isolation Horror

    Thanksgiving is synonymous with family. But this year, things are looking different, and it might mean you won’t venture to the airport during what is generally the busiest travel week of the year (a crowded airport in 2020—now THAT’S a horror story). It’s sad to set aside family traditions like dinner around the table, a rousing round of Clue, and placing bets on who will fall asleep first during the annual viewing of A Christmas Carol. But, family time isn’t always warm and cozy. If you’re only experiencing all that family tension and drama over Zoom this year, you might sigh in relief. So, whether you love your family togetherness…
