Chasity Conley is my Woman In Horror today! I suppose you folks will look at Chasity's sweet little children's book Ericka The Puppy Learns About Safety Rules and say, "Blaze has gone off the edge of the abyss. This book has nothing to do with horror." You're right. It doesn't. But just as my romantic love poems have nothing to do with horror, don't snicker in the back- I do write some of those - Chasity's children's books have nothing to do with her eclectic talent. She has a super story included in the upcoming anthologyFrom Dusk Til Dawn, to be published in early summer by Visionary Press Collaborative. This is a romance anthology. Different from children's books for sure. And some of the stories in this have horror and erotica mixed in. Quinn Cullen, the Romance Director at Visionary has been quiet so far as to exactly what everyone has written, but since I am one of the editors, I will find out. Ahah.
Also, I know Chasity has more projects coming besides what I have already mentioned. Yay!
Now comes the real reason she is one of my Women In Horror. It is her poetry. Check out the links I have provided for her blog and Facebook pages, in particular https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Shy-Poet/358032104313783The Shy Poet. I happen to love poetry and fancy myself to understand and appreciate not only the finer points of well written poems, but I always see what the poet is conveying. Always, a huge glimpse into the person behind the poetry emerges. What do I see when I read Chasity's poetry? Some of it is light and uplifting, but there are poems of hers that pull her innermost feelings and soul out for the reader to explore. In a sweet way, Chasity tells of real life horrors. Sweet because that is the way Chasity is, but that does not make the horrors any less so. Go to her blog and Facebook page and read these poems. After a few, maybe less, depending on the ones you choose, a pattern erupts, and her majestic poems will hit you with their messages.
Chasity might be The Shy Poet, but her words convey a huge meaning. Chasity Conley is a Woman In Horror!
