A femme fatale is a mysterious and seductive woman whose charms ensnare her lovers, often leading them into compromising, dangerous, and deadly situations. Her ability to entrance and hypnotise her victim with a spell was in the earliest stories seen as being literally supernatural; hence, the femme fatale today is still often described as having a power akin to an enchantress, seductress, vampire, witch, or demon, having power over men.
Jaclyn and Samie are creating an anthology of stories about these powerful women, by powerful women and are looking for some amazing female authors to contribute. These short stories need to be between 4,000 and 6,000 words, using the femme fatale as the central theme.
