Some years I go to NEcon and it's just hanging out with other people who love horror (that is my first passion) and staying up drinking (Sambuca and chocolate this year - I am a grown up, damn it!) and talking about how publishing continues to amaze us with change.
The last time I was there, I kept on asking all the other women horror writers where the novels about the horror of being female were (please recommend any really great horror of being female novels I may have missed). This year one of them said she had thought about that and was working on a menopausal dark fantasy (that may not sound riveting, but I don't want to give away too much of the plot). Suffice it to say that I am really looking forward to reading her book.
And I came up with a really great horror idea while there too.
Now, let's see if I can find the time to write it.
