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!

The Trial of Jehenne de Brigue-by C.C. Winchester

So, I am totally excited about my first officially published horror story! It’s so cool to see my name on a cover like this, well pen name, Lol. But the initials, C.C., do stand for my real name at least. 🙂 My short story is included along with the writings of much more accomplished Women of Horror than myself, so I am proud and honored to be included. I hope to one day achieve as much success of many of the women included in this anthology.

The synopsis for, “The Trial of Jehenne de Brigue”:

The “Trial of Jehenne de Brigue” is the story of an herbalist healer who lives in 14th century France during a time when women who indulged in medical pursuits were highly scrutinized by society and the Catholic church. It is a story of betrayal, revenge, and a woman who is willing to fight until her dying breath to have the right to live as she chooses.

The title of the anthology is Don’t Break the Oath, and it’s the fourth Women of Horror anthology published by Kandisha Press.

Official Book Cover:

This is an awesome collection of writings by extremely talented women horror writers. I mean the rest of them, not me, but as long as you read the others, you might as well read mine! 😀

Available on Amazon Kindle and Paperback, Nook (Barnes & Noble), Kobo and Apple Books!

Twisted: Tainted Tales by Janine Pipe

Just finished reading this delightful romp through the mind of the extremely talented, Janine Pipe! I had read her stories before in the women of horror anthologies published by Kandisha Press and loved them, so it was a no brainer to purchase this little ditty! As usual, she wows the reader with her creativity by presenting this collection as lost papers of a semi-famous author written as an 80s mixtape, complete with titles of 80s songs for each story. Since my partying days long, long, ago were in the 80s, I was drawn to that. But then again, who doesn’t love 80s music?!

Each story is so well done and fires up the reader’s imagination and anticipation immediately upon entry. Many of them leave the reader wanting more, much in the same style as shorts by the illustrious, Stephen King. The collection is permeated with ghosts, legendary creatures, folklore; a buffet of all things horror.

I also love that she put author notes at the end of each tale. I love getting a glimpse into the writer’s mind. And of course I’m drawn to her writing because much like me she is heavily influenced by the TV show, Supernatural.

Janine Pipe with her awesome range when it comes to writing horror, is on her way to being a force to be reckoned with in the horror writing community. I give this anthology 5 stars!
