I did a guest post over on Jack Wallen‘s blog for Women in Horror Month. Here’s a small preview, head on over there to read the rest.
I’ve been a horror writer for nearly fifteen years. First as part of the film industry, in a screenwriting capacity, and about four years ago transitioning to fiction. In that time I’ve made some great decisions, and some not so great decisions,(I’m not the craziest about this sentence…not smooth to read) and I’ve busted my butt to continually improve upon my craft and get where I am today.
If you told me that you didn’t want to read my work based my gender, I’d tell you to get the fuck out of town, and I would be right for saying that. I may only have been a writer for one and a half decades, but I’ve been a female my entire life. I’ve had that type of blatant sexism directed toward me more times than I can count, but that’s not what I’ve really come here to discuss.
It’s like a dream come true. Back in November I threw Disease up on Wattpad. I figured I had nothing to lose, but lots of readers to gain. Back then I never imagined that it would quickly become a featured novel, and that after that I’d be watching it skyrocket in the ranks. Today I’m please to announce, nay, estatic to announce, Disease is now #1 on Wattpad Featured Horror!

You’ve worked hard on your manuscript and, like a juicy red apple you’re about to leave on your favourite teacher’s desk, you want it to be polished to perfection. Now that it’s time to relinquish the fruits of your labour to a professional editor, how do you avoid getting ripped off? How do you know the editor you’re about to rely on closely is sufficiently qualified?
I have dirty little secret. I’ll let you in on it over at Darkness Dwells where I’m guest blogging for this month’s Women In Horror post. Check it out!
