Guest on Tonight’s Lovecraft Ezine Chat!

EZine
“Selena Chambers Delivers Sharp Prose in Calls for Submission” was written by Acep Hale, and ran on Lovecraft eZine on June 8.

I am excited to be on tonight’s Lovecraft Ezine Chat where I’ll be joining Mike Davis, Acep Hale, and crew to discuss my short story collection, Calls for Submission, and all the dark, sundry things within.

If you’d like to tune in LIVE you can do so here at 6 pm EST:  https://youtu.be/9GtcQ-Vsw14. But if you can’t catch it (because like, you are at HPLFF), you can always catch it later on in the week. There will be a podcast version available too, which I will post once I have the relevant linky links.

What does “Quiet Horror” mean? Five Horror Writers Weigh In–Lovecraft eZine

This one fell through the blogging cracks for some reason. Nonetheless, this roundtable curated and conducted by Acep Hale is a great vehicle for showing how nuanced the horror genre is, but also how many voices are out there improvising it.

I was honored to be part of the “Quiet Horror” panel with Kristi DeMeester, C.M. Muller, Nathan Carson, and Mehitobel Wilson.

Story Sold: SHE WALKS IN SHADOWS

Pleased as punch that my story “Body to Body to Body” will be part of Innsmouth Free Press’ SHE WALKS IN SHADOWS, the first all-ladies writing about Lovecraft’s ladies anthology. Each author was assigned a specific character to treat, and my challenge was extracting 4000 words out of Eunice Babson, who exists on the pages of “The Thing on the Doorstep” in only three sentences, all involving the word “wench.” Many thanks to editors Silvia Moreno-Garcia and Paula R. Stiles for having me and throwing me the challenge.

As per usual with Innsmouth Free Press, the cover (by Sarah K. Diesel) is stunning, and the roster dazzling. Behold!
