Old Wives Tales

I'm excited to announce that I am joining an amazingly talented group of female authors for a horror anthology, titled, Emporium of Superstition, coming Fall 2022. Together, we will bring you creepy retellings of Old Wives Tales gone wrong...

Tell me (please comment, I'd love to hear!), what's your favorite Old Wives Tale, or one that has stuck with you forever?

Here's a few popular ones:

-If you eat a watermelon seed, it will grow in your stomach

-If you break a mirror, you'll have 7 years bad luck

-If you pull out a gray hair, 2 more will grow in its place

Here's some that turned out to be true:

-Eating before bed causes vivid dreams

-Heartburn while pregnant means your baby is hairy

-Hot baths cause infertility in men


This anthology is put together by Midnight Tide Publishing.
