Love scary stories with a feminist twist?!

After the success of the AMONG THE SHADOWS anthology kickstarter we’ve decided to do it again! This time our anthology is full of feminist horror stories. BETTY BITES BACK has something for everyone and runs the gambit from speculative fiction to ghost stories to revenge fantasy and back again. BETTY BITES BACK is scheduled to release October 2019.
