February is Women in Horror Month!

wihm9-grrrllogotall-br-mI love Women in Horror Month. Although women work in horror all year long (surprise!), I think it’s nice to take time out to specifically search out diversity in our reading and viewing.

Michael Bailey wrote a pretty comprehensive list of some fantastic female writers. There’s something here for everyone, so why don’t you swing by and pick up something new to read? He was also gracious enough to include me, and it made my heart sing. While we, of course, write for ourselves, it’s really wonderful to feel validated by our peers.

Another important, often overlooked aspect of the month is the WiHM Blood Drive. It can be a little nerve-wracking to donate blood, but it’s so very important. I’ve signed up to donate next week, if they’ll accept me. I’ll have to see if the scorpion venom and the horse antibodies/antivenin stuff roaring around in my blood makes me ineligible. We’ll see. I’ll report back.

Happy Women in Horror Month!
