Baer’s story “A Match is Lit” as well as his poem “Fire, fire in my mind…” are part of a collaboration with Deena Warner on her Halloween card project.
Amy Grech discussed how the horror genre has evolved for female authors over the past 20 years, the pros of cons, and share how Jack Ketchum has influenced her writing on Visited by Voices. Grech also participated in a recent group chat at Dark Between Pages with Deep Arya and Mona Kabbani, in which they discussed what inspires them and their writing process. She also appeared on Story Hour, with co-reader Rachel Unger, where Grech read an excerpt from her story, “Cold Comfort” from The One That Got Away Anthology.
