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.

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!

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!
