Published by The Unsaintly Queen, Lisa Vasquez
By her "Darque Design," Lisa Vasquez creates vivid, twisted horror with the precision of a scalpel, and cuts into the reader's psyche with "fleshed out" characters.
In her most recent release, THE UNFLESHED: TALE OF THE AUTOPSIC BRIDE, the main character, Angus Wulfe, gains notoriety for being as vile and twisted as the iconic Dr. Hannibal. Lisa's writing style has been compared to the works of Mary Shelley, Baz Luhrman, and the Grand Guignol (John Palisano, Bram Stoker-winning author of NERVES), and is being hailed as, "A writer of nightmarish vision and a new, poetic voice in today's horror genre" (Peter Molnar, author of THE CLOCKWORK LAZARUS).
There is one crown upon her head as the UNSAINTLY QUEEN but she wears many hats.

Am I reading that right, less than 1 cent per word?
Yes you are. We are a small press less than three years old. We pay what we can instead of asking you to write “for exposure”.
