The woman's role in horror fiction has ranged from final girl to femme fatale, but what really makes her tick?
In this collection, R. Saint Claire explores the psychological underpinnings that cause the girl next door or suburban mom to wander irretrievably to the dark side.
Foreword by Lydia Peever: Trouble transcends the traditionally feminine here—be it physical, psychological, or perceived—and brings us to a more modern stage but with roots in timeless sensibility. This is the signature of Saint Claire.

A Sneak Peek at R. Saint Claire's New Vampire Horror Novel, CODE RED.
What’s HorrorTube? A creepy, new carnival ride combining a water slide park with a haunted funhouse? Not quite, although that sounds like a blast.
A subset of BookTube, HorrorTube is an online community of horror enthusiasts who regularly post YouTube videos about horror-related topics, including books, films, and fiction writing.
Some of the writers included in this anthology cover horror exclusively. You’ll find them posting creepy photos on Instagram or waxing poetic about the seventies drive-in flick that kept them up all night. Some read widely, only delving into the horror genre occasionally. All are passionate about books and writing.
Joined together by this vibrant, online community of readers and writers, these nineteen authors bring you scary stories from all parts of the globe, proving that fear is universal.
Local Haunts has taken the horror BookTube community’s global influence and shrunk it down into one village of horror and mayhem you’ll not soon forget. Inside these pages are frightening stories from around the globe, telling tales of haunts, monsters, and other terrible things local to each author’s place of residence. Within these pages you’ll find terrifying tales from North America, my own included, joined by terrible happenings in the Australian bushlands, ghosts haunting an old Greek mansion, an abandoned Vietnamese hospital, and a creepy museum, among many other eldritch encounters.

With the help of Hannah’s old nemesis, Barbie D’Angelo, she and Sebastian discover a secret chamber inside the walls of the mansion that yields more terrifying secrets about John Nero.

"Classic horror tale with a fresh twist. Equal parts Friday the 13th, Eyes Without a Face and The Skin I Live In, Unmasked takes familiar ingredients, joyfully mashes them together, and creates something refreshingly new."
"PREPARE TO BE SCARED! A Taut, Sexy Page-Turning Gothic Thriller!"
"It has all the trappings of cult horror, but swims in the realm of a psychological thriller while commenting on the very real (and often dangerous) pursuit of beauty and fame in our media-driven society."
The world-renowned pop star, Karla, summons her estranged siblings to engage in intensive therapy at the location of a family tragedy: a now-abandoned summer camp. When fifty-year-old Karla appears looking more youthful and beautiful than ever, her siblings bitterly chalk it up to good plastic surgery and agree to stick out the month's retreat for a million-dollar bonus. But psychotherapy turns psycho when family members begin to uncover the twisted truth about their famous sister.
In an industry driven by beauty and ambition, LOOKS CAN KILL!
A serial killer is targeting New York’s Fashion elite. And each victim is linked to Len St. Michel, a designer on the brink of a make-or-break comeback.
Leading the murder investigation is Mario Corso, a New York native with the accent and hard exterior to prove it. Len’s attraction to the handsome detective is as irresistible as his compulsion to visit Volupté, a high-end sex club where he acts out his fantasies to a dangerous degree.
As Len pushes himself to heights of creativity and depths of degradation, he partners up with a new muse and model, Lilly Rose, whose innocence and beauty inspire him to greatness.
With Fashion Week approaching, and the Seventh Avenue Slasher closing in, Len will risk everything to land the cover of Vogue, even if it means ending up a murder headline on the Daily News.
