In early August 2016 my dear friend Chantell Renee, a fellow hairstylist and award winning writer, decided to create an anthology of short stories that were truly terrifying. That day over tacos at Torchy’s in the Heights we planned to have the collection ready in time for Halloween. Considering I’d just taken a position at a new salon, Chantell was opening her own place to cut hair, and I would be out of town the first two weeks of September…we kicked some ass by getting this collection out.
We asked out friends who also write horror if they’d be interested in joining us. Thankfully 5 authors agreed. Even better their stories were amazing. We held a party at the Wilde Collection in the Heights, which is an amazing venue, and friends gathered with us to celebrate our joint accomplishment.
All seven authors read a selection from their included work. Chantell was having trouble reading hers, she says that’s what happens when you’re over 40, so I took over for her.
You can see the video of me reading my award winning piece ‘Hair Dying’ on my Facebook author page.
There were lots of dead things to take pictures with, including Jack Skellington.
I’d like to take this time to thank all the contributors, readers, friends, and of course Chantell Renee because without all of you this collection of 21 horrifying short stories from 7 local authors wouldn’t be available for purchase on Amazon or on my Amazon Author page.
Don’t forget to pick up a copy to ‘Hair Raising Tales of Horror’ and leave an honest review once you’re done!
