    Yep. I'm starting this evening. Just the official blurb from WiHM, though.

    Should I start a new thread for everyone to post their links to? Might keep things more organized.

    Yeah, my first one is just "why I'm celebrating" and "what I'm going to do". The goods come later.

    Can you just add the links to the first post of this thread? Whatever is less work for you, D.

    soapdish, that's a great post. I have retweeted it!

    I have decided to do a series of posts about kick-ass heroines of horror - starting with Buffy. Hopefully the first post will go up this weekend.

    I am happy to retweet and promote everyone else's posts, and I will post the link to mine on this thread when they go live.

    Women in Horror Month: The Official Blurb

    Just post your links in this thread, folks. I'm also creating a list in the very first post for easy access.

    Please do read other people's posts, then share them on social media and/or leave a comment.

    Okay, mine's ready: The Call of the Grotesque.

    Took a little longer than I thought; I'll get on FB later today and start sharing.

    OK, I've just posted my first post, which is an introduction. I'm going to follow this up with a series of four weekly posts about kick-ass fictional horror heroines. Just as a heads-up, the four heroines I've decided to showcase - in order - will be:
    1 Buffy
    2 Alice from the 'Resident Evil' films
    3 Riply from the 'Alien' films
    4 Sarah Connor from the 'Terminator' films.


    I've also taken the liberty of posting links to the blogs of everyone who said they were participating in WiHM on this thread. If you'd rather I didn't do this, please let me know and I will remove you ASAP.

    Similarly, if I missed you off and you would like me to post a link to your blog, please let me know (and give me the URL of your blog).

    I will be retweeting everyone else's posts when they go up, so don't forget to let us know when you've posted!

    The Art of the Cover

    Made a little gallery of cover art that caught my eye. Please do come by and recommend your favorite covers by women in horror.

    I'm putting links to the posts in the very first thread of this post for easy access. Also have tweeted all the posts. They've picked up quite a few retweets, too. Will be doing a link round-up post this weekend. Keep 'em coming!

    I know! I've seen that. It makes me feel good. And enthused.

    Hi, Selma. Just read your post. I love how you chose a character that sometimes gets overlooked. I remember Kate. Nice job picking something a little different (yet still relevant) to examine!

    Hey soapy, all I'm seeing is the GoodReads page. Which review is yours?

    Whoops! No, it's supposed to link to my blog. I had another URL on my clipboard when I pasted. *headsmack*
    I'll fix it. Thank you for catching it!
