The Ladies of Horror Fiction Challenge Cross-post
This is a cross-post, this is not a booklikes challenge.This challenge is a photo challenge based on Instagram and Twitter. If you use either of those outlets and would like to join us we'd love to have you. There is a book prize at the end for all entries posted to Twitter & Instagram. We created the challenge to spotlight ladies writing horror fiction because our feeds were filled to the brim with horror fiction written by men and we wanted to change that a little.Not that there's anything wrong with fiction written by men but there are a lot of ladies writing it as well. I also selfishly wanted to find more author's to add to my tbr.
 
I'm cross-posting this as an example of what a typical post looks like on instagram.
 
It's day #1 of our Ladies of Horror Fiction challenge and I hope you can join us to showcase horror fiction written by the ladies. See the rest of the posts by using the #LadiesOfHorrorFiction hashtag at Twitter & Instagram.
 
Here's my picture of the day:

They Feed - Jason Parent

This monster romp was populated with mostly despicable people whose gruesome deaths were so much fun to witness. We all need a little of this sort of thing in our lives right about now, am I right?

 

Deep in the woods lurks a nightmare that doles out death to those foolish enough to venture into the woods looking for some rapey, murdery, torture-filled times and to a few innocents as well (but no worries, you won’t be crying about any of these deaths).

 

Tyler, newly released from a long stint in prison, revisits the woods that landed him in jail to try to make sense of his past but unbeknownst to him, he is being tailed by someone with revenge in their little black bitter heart. Also headed into these woods are a couple who really should NOT be together but their psychologist thought it would be good for them to spend some time in the outdoors (I think these people must share the same doctor of bad advice as the man in The Bird Eater). And then there’s the group of toxically stupid frat boys doing what they do.

 

“Things lived in the woods. Things with sharp teeth.”

 

Oh yesssss, come on in vile people! Come on in and get eaten! The sooner the better for me. The fun starts up soon enough and doesn’t really let go until the last page is turned. It’s gory and nasty and gleefully fun if you’re in the mood for a creature feature starring shit pancakes and tiny tentacled beasties.

 

Thank you Erin Sweet Al-Mehairi, author Jason Parent & publisher Sinister Grin Press for sharing an ARC with me!
