Stitched Smile Publications is an independent, small press located in Richmond, Texas. We specialize in dark, speculative fiction spanning across the following genres: Fantasy, Science Fiction, Poetry, Young Adult, and Horror. CEO Lisa Vasquez has appeared in many literary panels at conventions such as Comicpalooza, Fandemic Houston, Eastern Rim, and has mentored authors all over the country. She represents the Horror Writer's Association as the founder of Houston's Chapter, and serves as the Publishers Liaison for the organization.z


She brings her knowledge to the table in hopes of expanding the relationship between author and readers, enriching the community, and encouraging a love for reading. With your help and interest, we can turn this into a monthly event.

We invite you to join us at our event which is FREE to the general public. VIP tickets are just $10 paid in advance to receive early admission, goodie-bag, and free glass of wine at the VIP food and beverage table (21+ up, please). The event is an evening affair but is kid-friendly, and casual.  Click to see our Facebook Page

August 3-5

The Scares That Care Charity Weekend was originally a horror event designed to delight horror fans while benefiting those in need. Now, because of the increasing attendance from fan bases outside of horror, we are starting to transition to a genre event and will continue to morph as feedback points in the direction to continue positive growth.

“Scares That Care!” is an IRS approved, 501(c)(3) charitable organization, designed to bring together the fans of “all things spooky.” Whether it’s haunted houses, paranormal, horror films, or anything else in the “vein” of the horror genre, “Scares That Care!” brings together those individuals in order to give back to the families that need it most…and in turn, become “Good Ambassadors of Horror.”

The difference between our event and the other, fantastic shows that are out there, is simple. All of our proceeds will go to the families that need our assistance. We pride ourselves in being an organization that has no salaries, and no paychecks. We do this because it’s the right thing to do, and we want to represent the Horror community in the best light possible.
