Ok, 2023! I see you!

February is an amazing month! It’s Black History Month, the former Women in Horror Month, my birthday month, and the month where I will have THREE releases!



For you traditional horror fans comes a novella and short story collection combo about a book filled with stories that are to die for (I wish you could see the smirk I have on my face right now!)

On February 16th please welcome these beauties from Falstaff Books:

For all you lovers our there… lovers who don’t mind a little sci-fi and a little horror mixed in, that is, catch up with the Affinity Series. Book 2, Origins, comes out on February 23rd! Haven’t read Book 1 yet? Check out The Tryst!

I can’t wait for you to see these amazing books! I had a lot of fun writing them.

What else is goings on (channeling Bernie Mac right now)?

I taught a class at HWA’s Horror University called Decoding Screenwriting. Two hours worth of myth busting, tools for your toolkit, facts, and practicum. If you’ve ever wanted to write a screenplay, were in need of a screenwriting refresher, or wanted some practical industry knowledge, this is the course for you. Check it out!

I have the distinct honor of making it onto the preliminary ballot for the Stoker award in the short nonfiction category… twice! My two pieces: “African American Horror Authors and their Craft: The Evolution of Horror Fiction from African Folklore” and “The Horror of Hair” are in the running and I couldn’t be more excited. If you are an Active or Lifetime member and want to check them out, let me know!

It’s also love month and I am sending this newsletter on love day – not to be confused with Love Shot… though… wait…

I haven’t been able to get this song out of my mind, so I thought I’d share the love… shot! LOL! I ended up down a rabbit hole and have a bunch of new Exo favorites now. If the same happens to you, well, you’re welcome!

I’m doing my annual movie marathon – African Diaspora contribution this month. Join me on Twitter (@LMarieWood1) or FB (facebook.com/LMarieWood) to get in on the fun! We’ve already covered Blacula, Moonlight, and New Jack City (a classic, folks). Wonder what’ll be next.

Until next time…

L. Marie
