I have news!!!
I am SO excited to announce that my YA psychological sci-fi horror short story will be featured in the forthcoming diverse feminist horror anthology, BETTY BITES BACK which is being edited by Demitria Lunetta (The Fade, Bad Blood), Mindy McGinnis (Heroine, This Darkness Mine) and Kate Karyus Quinn (Down with the Shine, (Don’t You) Forget About Me)!
The anthology is an indie project being funded through Kickstarter, just like the first horror anthology, AMONG THE SHADOWS which Demitria, Mindy and Kate edited three years ago. I’ve actually fangirled about a couple of their books on this very blog before and I contributed to their first Kickstarter so it’s quite a full circle moment going from fan to peer. Thank you so much Demitria, Mindy and Kate for giving me this moment. I would say that it means more than you know but every author has those moments that makes them feel validated, so… thank you.
To be a part of making BETTY BITES BACK a reality, you can donate to the Kickstarter here. You can donate any amount, starting at just $1 with awesome bookish and writerly incentives at every level if you choose! Whether or not you can donate, please, please spread the word! Word of mouth goes so very far! It means so much! Be sure to use #BettyBitesBack on social!
Ahhh!!!! I can’t wait to have this anthology in my hands! Not just to see my own work within the pages but to read all of the other short stories! I am just one of over a dozen authors contributing to this anthology! Here’s the full line up:
Kate Karyus Quinn
Melody Simpson <—— That’s me!!!!!!!
Wow! What an incredible lineup! Each author will be featured on a different day throughout the entire month of August. So stay tuned to the Kickstarter for my feature on August 15th in which the title and premise of my short story will be revealed! You do not want to miss out on this! Run, don’t walk to the Kickstarter page! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much for your support!
