Wednesday Women of Horror Blog Share-Janine Pipe

Janine Pipe

Janine’s bio on Kandisha Press (but she has been up to so much more since):

JANINE PIPE – Press Agent, Author, Red Sox Fan, Best Frightening Fiend.

“Janine Pipe is a Horror lover and writer who was first introduced to the genre by her ghost story telling dad – and she hasn’t looked back since. Citing Glenn Rolfe and Hunter Shea as her favourite current writers and mentors, she likes to shock, and create twists and turns. There is usually a lot of gore and plenty of swearing …  She is very thankful to her biggest cheerleaders, her husband and daughter. She reviews for Scream Magazine and is a friend of Nightworms.

You can find several of her short stories at Kandisha Press, the charity anthology, Diabolica Britannica, 25 Gates of Hell, and Campfire Macabre from Cemetery Gates Media. She is currently writing a splatterpunk vampire hunter novella and an 80’s slasher. You will also find her podcasting with fellow Brit and indie author, Lou Yardley on Cryptids, Crypts and Coffee or buddy read reviewing and interviewing with Ben Long on her YouTube channel.”

She recently posted this on her Facebook author page:

“Hello everyone! I haven’t used this page for updates in *checks watch* 15 years (High Five if you get that reference) but I noticed several new likes over the last couple of weeks so thought I’d do a quick couple of posts.

I released my debut short story collection Twisted: Tainted Tales just over a year ago and it continues to do pretty well so thank you for any and all support with that.

Earlier this year I co-edited Slash-Her for Kandisha Press featuring 21 slasher tales told by women.

And just a couple of weeks ago on Friday 13th May, I released Sausages: The Making of Dog Soldiers which was an absolute dream come true.”

Janine is a super fan of Dog Soldiers, so of course she was the perfect person to write, Sausages: The Making of Dog Soldiers!

I have to hold off on reading that book, though because I haven’t seen the movie yet. Epic fail, I know!

I have however read, Twisted: Tainted Tales and loved it! I even wrote a review!

I also did my first and only author interview (so far) with Janine. She was a trooper about being my first victim!

Wednesday Women of Horror Blog Share-Jill Girardi

Jill Girardi

Jill Girardi of Kandisha Press is very special to me because she was the first person to consider a story of mine worth publishing. She is the chief cook and bottle washer at Kandisha Press where she along with her crew, publish horror anthologies written entirely by women. She is currently taking a break from that though so she can focus on her own writing. Jill has earned a break since she has already published five anthologies through her press.

Here’s her bio from the Kandisha Press website:

JILL GIRARDI – Editor-In-Chief, Author, Declawed Subcreature.

Jill is the author of Hantu Macabre, (Published by Fixi Novo) the best-selling novel featuring punk rock paranormal detective Suzanna Sim and Tokek the toyol. The book was shortlisted for the 2019 Popular/The Star Readers’ Choice Awards. Suzanna and Tokek will also be taken to the big screen, as a full-length film based on the characters is set to start shooting in 2021, with former MMA Fighter Ann Osman starring as Suzanna.

Jill has several short horror stories published (many of which feature various small, wicked creatures) and will soon begin working on the next volume in the Hantu Macabre series. She currently lives in New York where she is the editor of the Kandisha Press Women of Horror Anthology books.

Wednesday Women of Horror Blog Share-Lydia Prime

I’m going to try to share something every Wednesday (because that’s my off day from thankless/soul-sucking job) that represents a fellow woman horror writer. Women of Horror, let me know if you have a blog or website so I can follow and share. 🙂

First up: Lydia Prime:

Lydia is that friendly monster under your bed waiting for you to stick a limb out from beneath the covers. When she’s not trying to shred scraps of humanity from the unsuspecting, she writes stories and poems of the horror and dark fiction variety. Her work can be found on Pen of the Damned, as well as The Ladies of Horror Picture-prompt Challenge on Spreading the Writers Word. Additionally, she has had several pieces published in issues of The Sirens Call eZine.

Lydia has also had short stories published in: Under Her Black Wings: A 2020 Women of Horror AnthologyGraveyard Smash: Women of Horror Anthology Volume 2The One That Got Away: Women of Horror Anthology Volume 3 from Kandisha Press.

Take a walk through her mind and check out some of her creatures.

Above all, the most important thing to remember is that the fruity beverages can be found on the left. Don’t be afraid, you couldn’t possibly get lost in here, could you?” (Copied from her website about page.)

Here’s the link to her website, Lapsed Reality.
