If you like short, sharp horror or flash fiction of the fearsome kind, then take a visit to Lily Childs’ home on the web, Lily Childs’ Feardom. Not only is Lily a brilliantly macabre author, but she also hosts a weekly flash fiction competition and the February Femme Fatales, a showcase of short horror writing from female authors who like to put themselves about a bit on the web. If you’re feeling brave why not pay a visit – oh, and today the Femme Fatale just happens to be me! Come and see what happened next to the hapless Derek in Death and Derek. Happy reading.
It’s my turn to be the resident Femme Fatale on Lily Childs’ Feardom today and I shall spend it wafting around in vampy clothing giving out sultry killer looks and pouting. To read my contribution to this fabulously female-only dark fiction showcase, visit
Note the gravestone graphic at the end – thanks, Lily!
If you’re not already keeping up with February Femme Fatales, why not start now and get your daily chills delivered regularly from the Feardom. Service with a scream!
If you like all things deliciously dark then head over to Lily Childs’ Feardom* over the month of February. She will be showcasing a different piece of female horror fiction on each day of the month, with yours truly appearing on Sunday 6 February with a skittish flash piece called Fun With Derek.
If you are a fan of online horror e-zines and indie anthologies you may have already enjoyed Lily’s work; if you haven’t come across her yet I recommend Dressing Up Box* as a ‘taster’ – do not read on a full stomach!
