About

Here is Scott Savino, the project's creator, with more about the project...

We are making something new and exciting for LGBTQIA horror fans!

The horror community has thousands of LGBTQIA fans, so where are we in the stories? Traditionally, horror has included us or used us as part of the plot twist. Transgender individuals are vilified in stories like "Silence of the Lambs" and "Sleepaway Camp." Lesbians are included to sexualize storylines and Gay men are depicted as shrill-screaming comic relief. 

Where is everyone else in this picture? 

Short Answer: They're not. And we want to change that--as with everything else, there is a place for all us--we just have to go out of our way to make it.

Many of Our Authors Are Previously Published

They have books, followings and die-hard fans! They've done this before and want to do it again. This time, to make something that includes all of our voices--together. We want to include stories by LGBTQIA authors and allies both seasoned and up-and-coming. 

Accurate Portrayals of LGBTQIA People

Growing up, many of us didn't have realistic rolemodels to identify with. LGBTQIA were under or misrepresented in all facets of the media that most of us consumed. We had to figure out who we were and how we identified on our own. Would it have helped you as you were coming into your own to have seen positive rolemodels and regular people living regular lives just like anyone else? With your help, we can create that for the kids who are coming-of-age next. We intend to do that with realistic depictions of people in horrific situations; though the themes of this book may be gory, we will not be featuring erotica or overly sexualized stories in this collection. There is a place for those stories--just in a different book.

Risks and challenges

This project already has a number of authors interested and stories written. We already have a publisher to make this happen. The biggest hurdle we face is paying the authors at a competitive rate. NBH Publishing LLC is a new independent publisher and though they have already released a few titles, they do not have the funding to pay the authors for their contributions to this project up-front. For the sake of clarity, Scott Savino, the creator of this project, is not in any way part of NBH Publishing LLC.

In order to be able to solicit the best LGBTQIA authors and the best LGBTQIA stories, we need to be able to assure the authors and editors that their time on this project is going to be compensated at a competitive rate.
