Don't Cry to Mama

Posted by Randi on Monday, June 18, 2018

What they want:
We’re all grown up right? Or are we? Do things in the night still make you wanna cry to mama? Well you can’t anymore, she doesn’t live here. Time to face your demons, man or woman. Mama ain’t here, but all she ever wanted was to hear your laughter, and to know you’re safe. You’re not safe. It’s just you now. But you won’t let mama down, right?

Did mama tell you if you did that thing with your face it would freeze that way? Or that pop rocks and cola would make your stomach explode? Give us your funniest, grossed out horrors about the things and creatures you were warned about by your mama, God rest her soul (if applicable, of course). We want stories that tread that line between cringe worthy and shudder filled, tales that will make you laugh uncomfortably while being genuinely terrified. If you can strike that balance, we want your story. Your story must include a reference to Mama, or it won't fit the anthology theme.
