EMMA AUDSLEY - WOMAN IN HORROR!

Emma Audsley is my Woman In Horror today! She is editor of The Horrifically Horrifying Horror Blog where the motto is“Inspiring Ghouls of the Fictional World of Horror Everywhere.” The blog features reviews of books and movies, author interviews, writing resources, articles on writing, picture prompts for writers, and several other features. You can read her posts at

Also, she works alongside Joe Mynhardt as Publishing & Editing Consultant at Crystal Lake Publishing. http://www.crystallakepub.com/  . I have some dark poems, a short story, and a couple of non-fiction stories related to horror writing with this great Publisher. They are a class act, my friends.

Emma has always loved the horror genre. Bram Stoker and Stephen King are among her favorite authors.
The horror genre is the only genre she is attracted to. She feels she is able to get in touch with the important parts of life and gain a deeper understanding of the more troubling aspects of life. She is allowed to create her stories from the horrifying parts, being the most honest in my opinion, and form them as her mind and soul see fit.

Emma's schooling took her to literature and editing, and her horizons expanded. She is a very helpful young lady as well, willing and able to help many new authors who are not only a bit lost in all the nuances of getting published but scared as well. She gives back to the community of horror and horror authors.

She is very active in the Horror Writers Association and did all the Women In Horror posts for that great organization in February.

Now I come to some personal things which I never knew about Emma until I started doing some research for this post. Emma's two sons have Autism. My 6 year old daughter is Autistic, and so is my nineteen year old granddaughter. Truth be told, at the age of sixty two, while searching for a common link between them, I discovered I am Autistic as well. Go figure, huh. I go all that time and think everyone viewed things the way I did. Not quite. Anyway, my point here is that Emma loves her boys as much as I love my daughter and granddaughter. She understands her children. Perhaps her children and mine will never be what many people think they should be, but that is society's problem. There are too many buffoons running around, thumping on their chests, and spouting answers to the wrong questions. Emma knows them for what they are, and that is why horror is such a grand avenue in which to tell of the Dark things around us. We spout the truth, my readers, and Emma knows it more than most.

Along with the truth and love within this grand ladie's soul, there is sadness . . . sadness for me because I read some other things I will not divulge here. That is for Emma to do, if and when she decides. They're scattered around the internet, but I only mention it here to let you know that I respect this lady highly. Damn, she has guts!   

Read her great article From Reader To Writer: Finding Inspiration in the great book Horror 101: The Way Forward published by Crystal Lakes Publishing. I cannot repeat enough the glories of this tome, and Emma had so much to do with its success.

I stole the below from Crystal Lake Publishing's website. So shoot me!

Emma Audsley was born for horror fiction. With a burning desire to help the horror genre evolve & expand, she helps in her own little ways namely reviewing, editing & mentoring.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resource for Genre Writers May 1, 2014

The world of publishing is more than a little bewildering these days, with new options for publishing and a greater need than ever for writers to know how to market their work and promote themselves. Although this book is a mixed bag, the info that is helpful in this volume far outweighs the fluff, and is worth much more than the price of the book. If you're just starting out as a writer you NEED to read this book. If you're a pro with sales under your belt or are self-publishing your work, you'll find resources in here to increase your sales and fan base. There's great practical advice on the act of writing, being a writer (acting professionally), how and where to promote yourself, etc. from writers of books and movies, from veterans and fairly new success stories, from reviewers and editors. No matter what level you're on as a writer, you'll learn something worth learning.

Unlike many books that tell you how to write, how to get famous writing, or how to make the book you've written a bestseller, Horror 101 takes a look at the business of horror lit, and may even help you find your place within it. This is a strong collection of essays by writers that horror fans have surely read, and some they may not have. They offer advice and stories from their own experience on a diverse range of topics related to working in horror fiction. These include ways to brand yourself and develop a following, and also include novel-adjacent topics like editing, short stories, screenwriting, graphic novels, and more. Some of the stuff was not specific to my situation, but was still enjoyable to read thanks to the wit and enthusiasm of the contributors. I got this one for only 99 cents, which is a steal. Anyone who is, or wants to be working with horror lit should pick it up.
