To you, our readers, who are already on our mailing list and are looking forward to the excitement that is coming with Final Girl Press, we’d like to take a moment to thank you. Truly. This is an incredible journey that we are embarking on, and having your support is indescribably invaluable.
There’s a lot on the horizon. We’ve had some incredible authors join our team. These women have shared stories of blood, guts, and horror (with just the perfect amount of heart to get you right in the feels). A big congrats to Emily S. Hurricane for being our first short story author uploaded on the Final Girl Press site! Do yourself a favour and check out her original short story, Succubus. I promise that you’ll be seeing a lot more excellence where that came from.
If you’re in the Niagara Falls region on Saturday October 27th and October 28th, be sure to check out Frightmare in the Falls, presented by Rue Morgue. This event is a splattering of horror spectaculars, including panels, special guests, vendors, and everything else that a horror lover could possibly want.
(And while you’re at it, stop by and say hello to our dear friend, author, editor, and all around great human: Monica S. Kuebler. She’ll be at the Rue Morgue booth promoting some of her phenomenal work—not to be missed!)
Stay tuned as well for a special upcoming reading in Toronto. I will be reading an excerpt from my latest short story compendium, Crestfallen, as well as chatting a bit with our authors about Final Girl Press. There will be mischief, mayhem, and of course, alcohol. Keep your eyeballs peeled for the upcoming date.
As with all things, the work never ends. We are always looking for new submissions and material for Final Girl. If you or another female-identifying author would like to be a part of our mission to harken better awareness of women in horror, please submit today. You can also support us by joining our mailing list – the easiest way to receive news, updates, and fresh, fresh content.
We are approaching the winter months—a time for us creatures of darkness to unite and thrive. As the sun begins its slow descent into darkness, make sure to pause and remember how beautiful that darkness can be. It feeds the soul in ways you could never imagine.
Happy Fall everyone,
Editor in Chief
