Last year, Colorado HWA members Carina Bissett, Hillary Dodge, and Shannon Lawrence threw a Valentine’s Day bash to celebrate Women in Horror Month (WIHM). A Bloody Valentine drew a great crowd, and we gave away more than thirty-five signed books by award-winning authors and editors nationwide as door prizes.
In addition to recorded readings by women authors nationwide, the event featured Colorado authors including J. A. Campbell, Hillary Dodge, Angie Hodapp, DeAnna Knippling, Shannon Lawrence, P. L. McMillan, and Angela Sylvaine. It was a smashing success!
This year is a little different. To adjust to the restrictions imposed by the pandemic, we decided to switch to a virtual celebration. Each week, we will be featuring a member of the Colorado Springs Chapter of the Horror Writers Association. We hope you’ll tune in and enjoy this month’s selections of readings for the second annual Bloody Valentine!
