All the covers above are done by the Art Director for Angelic Knight Press, Rebecca Treadway. She is a multi-talented lady: artist, writer, formatter, and editor. Cover art sells books! If your cover sucks, who wants to look inside? I can vouch for the fact she is a great person to work with, and her artistic talents alone would classify her as a Woman in Horror. However, she is also a superb writer. I was a beta reader for Chilly Eye Callie a while back and love the story. She is working on a novel and a collection of shorts as well. Below is the description of her tale on Amazon.
Product DescriptionWhen she has your eye, she has your mind. Chilly-Eye Callie is a supernatural horror story with humorous elements. As Miss Callie rides the Sacramento transit train, she comes across a young man about to get into some serious trouble. Will she be able to stop a rape and subsequent murder?
I grabbed this five star review from there as well, written by Lisa McCourt Hollar, another Woman in Horror. She obviously knows her stuff. By the way, this is one of many five star reviews for this great story.
Chilly-Eye Callie is one of those stories that stays with you long after you have finished reading it. I have read this several times and each time, I am enthralled with the woman. Since it is a short story, it is hard to go into detail, without giving too much away, but Callie is a woman that has lived a long time. She has experienced heartbreak and joy and she knows injustice when she sees it. She understands a young mans anger at a friends imprisonment, due to charges brought against him by a woman that falsly cried rape. But she knows the plans he and his friends have in store for this woman will only lead to more trouble. So the Callie takes matters into her own hands.
I have to say, the ending caught me by surprise. Maybe I should have seen it coming, but who Chilly-Eye Callie is was a thrill that made this story so much better. She isn't a woman I would want to cross and one I look forward to reading more about.
