  • The LOHF team reserves the right to determine the genre of work and the category eligibility.
  • The LOHF team is comprised of book reviewers and writers. If your submitted work is read to completion, it is highly likely said work will be reviewed on the judge’s personal blog, the LOHF site (if it receives at least 3 stars or higher), Goodreads, Booklikes, and/or social media outlets. By submitting your work for awards consideration, you are also agreeing to be reviewed by members of the LOHF team if they are inclined to do so.
  • The LOHF Awards juries are comprised of undisclosed LOHF team members and additional jury members. No member of any LOHF Awards jury will read or vote on a work they were involved with writing, editing, procuring, promoting (paid), and/or publishing.
  • Ladies of Horror Fiction is a completely volunteer group. We reserve the right to modify the rules and timeline at any time as necessary.
