Write Her Story


Yŭka Io
by H.R. Boldwood

She is Yŭka Io, guardian of the abyss, who rises before the blazing sun of Tyber stirs the electric sky.
War hammer in hand, she begins her trek across the parched clay soil, feeling it crack underfoot, hearing the brittle ‘snap’ beneath her feet. The sound reminds her of breaking china — the china her mother used before the orbital tilt of Tyber replaced elegance and civility with misery and death.
She does not walk alone. Her feathered legion, dark and fearless, soars through the forever storm, riding the lightning and climbing the currents at her beck and call. Ever vigilant, their eyes scan the void for the heinous monsters loosed by the ever-widening fissure.
Together, Yŭka Io and her winged warriors hold the beasts of the chasm at bay — dark, demonic leviathans that lay in wait, sheltering in the abyss.  They watch and listen. When the time is right, they emerge in search of their prey — the innocents of Tyber.
The sentinel stands watch at the edge of the void, her airborne minions ever ready.  She is the wall between good and evil. She is the space between the dark and the light.
She is Yŭka Io, guardian of the abyss, who rises before the blazing sun of Tyber stirs the electric sky.

suzielockhart_killingitsoftlyKilling It Softly – Short Story: Nosophoros

Suzie Lockhart and Digital Horror Fiction are thrilled to present 32 chilling tales of terror from some of the best authors in horror. Killing It Softly includes stories from New York Times best selling authors Nancy Holder and Elaine Cunningham, together with more shocking short nightmares from the finest award winning female writers in the genre. Your heart won’t stop pounding as you dig into the pages of this book; from the moment you immerse yourself in the first tale, about a women waking to find herself inside a coffin, buried alive, until the last, a coming of age story about a sixteen-year-old’s journey of self-discovery amidst all hell breaking loose. You’ll find your proof that women can, indeed, do a wicked dance between science fiction and horror as they penetrate your darkest thoughts, to bring forth stories promising to leave you with a lingering anxiety you can’t seem to shake. Any romantic notions of vampires will be crushed, and dark and twisted plots will confirm definitively that females can even write about zombies. We dare you to read stories that will leave you deeply disturbed, and some that will slice into your very soul. It wouldn’t be horror if there wasn’t an ode to Edgar Allen Poe…we have two masterfully written tales. There are stories off the odd and unusual, stories that take a perilous dive into worlds of disturbing shadows, and there’s even an exorcism—in a tale that daringly addresses the heartbreaking disease that is alcoholism. Enter at your own risk…

Available on Amazon!
