As I have announced previously, I am working as the editor for a project called Ladies in Red, an anthology of strong, uncompromising horror featuring strong female characters, to be published by Horrified Press.
The call did go somewhat like this…
They have been the focus of horror movies for decades: the scream queens, the final girls, running upstairs to escape the masked killer…
The time has come for them to be brought center stage in a collection of blood and guts stories with a difference.
Uncompromising, in-your-face horror with a strong female focus.
Let’s get physical.
We are not looking for paranormal romance. No sexy vampires, no lustful werewolves.
We want hard-hitting, gut-wrenching tales of fear. Blood. Gore. Body horror. Twisted psychology.
And women, standing among the carnage and mayhem.
Because where angels fear to tread, a woman will hold her own.
We are looking for stories and poetry.
Now, there are still five or six available slots before we close the project, and we are working on a relaxed but careful schedule: I’d love for this baby to be out for Halloween.
So, please, think about submitting your story or your poetry.
You find all the sordid details here, at the very bottom of the page.
In Brief: 2000/6000-words stories, hard-hitting horror with a strong female lead.
Reprints ok, poetry ok.
The stories will be paid with a share of the royalties.
