‘Her Body And Other Stories’, A Horror Book About Womanhood, Is Becoming A TV Series


Author Carmen Maria Machanda rocked the literary world last year when she released Her Body and Other Stories, an anthology of short horror stories about womanhood. The book, while profoundly entertaining, also jumpstarted discussions about gender, sexuality, and feminism.

If you’re not much of a reader but this sounds like your cup of tea, you’re in luck — it’s currently in the process of becoming a Black Mirror-style TV show, according to Vulture.

When you think about it, now is the perfect time for this kind of show: with the #MeToo movement still wildly in effect, it’s sure to catch a lot of attention from the media. Besides, is there ever a bad time for a horror show? I think not.

The show was picked up by Imagine Television, the same production company  that developed Empire and Parenthood, with writer-producer Gina Welch at the helm. While it’s unclear when the show is expected to air, I think it’s safe to say we’ll be hearing a lot about it before it does. TC mark

This is me letting you go

If there’s one thing we all need to stop doing, it’s waiting around for someone else to show up and change our lives. Just be the person you’ve been waiting for.

At the end of the day, you have two choices in love – one is to accept someone just as they are and the other is to walk away.

We owe it to ourselves to live the greatest life that we’re capable of living, even if that means that we have to be alone for a very long time.

“Everyone could use a book like this at some point in their life.” – Heather

Let go now
