Picture-Prompt Writing Challenge!

The Bridge
by Suzie Lockhart

My hand glides over
cold rusty rivets;
A bridge to nowhere,
yet everywhere I want to be.
Water swirling
below, beckoning…
Agony inside swelling,
bursting with need
to be released.
Late summer chill rushes
through me,
Foreboding clouds darkening
Telling me
The time is ripe.
Freedom is calling
as I climb
onto the metal shelf
embracing the breeze
that will carry me.
I take flight, fleeing;
death is my destiny.
Inhaling, exhaling,
The time is right…
Enveloping me, water
swallowing me
The dark depths
surrounding me
As I breath in the water,
releasing my spirit
Eternally.

Killing It Softly 2

The Best by Women in Horror

The first ‘Killing It Softly’ was just the tip of the iceberg…

Beneath the icy depths of this next installment, you’ll be plunged into a world where 38 female horror writers give you a glimpse of their inner-demons, unleashing the hell-fire they suppress in the ‘real’ world. It will disturb you to discover what really lurks inside their minds, because many of these stories delve into pain that can only be experienced by women—leaving you unhinged as you curl up with them during their darkest hour.

Post-partum depression, hording, anorexia, and mental health will be brought to light when viewed through the shadowy perspective of cognitive deception.

Sci-fi, romance, steam-punk, and fantasy intertwine with horror to deliver unsettling, chilling stories; traditional tales of witches, zombies, werewolves, and vampires will be told in twisted new ways that will shock, unnerve, and even repulse you…and within these pages, sometimes new monsters will arise from the ashes.

You may even discover that women can not only write good horror…but in some cases, can do it better.

Available on Amazon!
