Just like last year, I am starting my Women In Horror posts a day early, and I'll be running them for months. Twenty eight days is not even close to what is needed to sing the praises of the best Horror authors on this spinning rock. Women put the chills in my spine when I read their stories. Yet, sadly, they are not given the recognition they deserve. Let's change that, my friends! Tell the world about your favorite Women Horror authors. Do I ever have some great Women Authors to share with you!
I am starting out with a very prolific author who I have had the pleasure of knowing for some time now, Lisa McCourt Hollar. You can see from all the books I snatched from Amazon, that there is no shortage of wonderful tales to immerse yourself in from this classy lady. She even writes children's books. She is a very eclectic author.
The first story of hers I had the privilege of reading is Sam, a tale about a Zombie goldfish. I love that story. I mean, how can you top a Zombie goldfish? If you take a peak below, you will see that this great book only costs 99c. Lisa told me she plans on making a longer tale out of this and I believe she should.
I have the honor to be in seven anthologies with Lisa, and the list will grow. Also, I am a co-editor of some of her books, including some delightful children's books. Yes, I did edits for them: don't laugh at me! They were fun.
Lisa has many books on the horizon. Next month will be a big one for her, and so will March. I will keep you up to date with what is coming from her gifted pen.
Not only is Lisa a great author, she is the President of Visionary Press Cooperative, in charge of the children's books there, does the formatting for the Press , and co-ordinates everything for all the authors, artists, youtube specialists, editors, and more. She is a true talent and much appreciated by everyone over there. For a Press which started out as horror only, we are anything but. Horror, romance, poetry, Christian, children's, fantasy, running, and more now. Without Lisa, this would have never happened. She reached out to people and brought them together to form one great team of fantastic people. Thank you for that, Lisa.
Lisa McCourt Hollar is a class lady and one fine Horror author. They don't come any better than her. It is only proper that this year, she should carry the banner of excellence high and proud and say, "I am a Woman In Horror, and I am damn good!" She is that and more. Lead the way, my friend, as we gather some hugely talented authors to march alongside us.
I present to you, Lisa McCourt Hollar, a true Woman In Horror!
Mother, wife, writer, I have self published several short stories and collections. I also have stories in 7 anthologies. I mostly write horror but have a few children's stories as well. Currently working on my first novel.
BiographyIn 2011, I decided to stop talking about how I wanted to be published and actually publish. Deciding that indie was the best choice for me, I published my first short story, Sam, on Amazon Kindle. I followed that with the Wall. I now have several short stories and collections available on Amazon kindle and am working on my novel, The Legend of Graystone Manor, which should be published sometime this year. I am also included in several anthologies.
