It's time to turn the "man and his dog wandering through a dystopian world” trope on its head, and tell the stories about cats and their women - their badass women!
Cat Ladies of the Apocalypse wanders through broken worlds with stories of survival, technology, magic, and sheer determination. But – like their cats – the authors frequently slipped out the upstairs window or knocked things off of countertops, and their stories are stronger for it.
In these pages, cats help their women find a better life, protect and defend and fight for the women who have sheltered and protected them – and vice-versa. Because these are not only stories about surviving troubled times, but of the relationships between the women and their cats, between the members of communities both small and large, and how they thrive, even in the face of catastrophic loss.
Cat Ladies of the Apocalypse – it’s time to take them seriously!

Deception awaits around the next curve in the road. Rumors spread over garden hedges, fishing ponds, and knitting circles. Neighborhood cats discover a boneyard.

In Quoth the Raven, we invite you to answer the call of the raven and revisit Poe's work, re-imagined for the twenty-first century. Here, the lover of mystery and Gothic horror will find familiar themes in contemporary settings, variations on Poe's tales, and faithful recreations of the author's signature style.
We didn’t have one hundred monkeys - but we did have the membership of a League of Utah Writers chapter that calls itself “The Infinite Monkeys.” Most of them didn’t have typewriters, but worked on laptop or desktop computers, smartphones, and tablets. And instead of one hundred years to perfect their prose, we gave them one year to get from blank page to published anthology. So while you won’t find any reproductions of Shakespeare here, what you will find are thirty-five short stories that will make you laugh, make you cry, make you think, and sometimes make you glad you don’t live in the unsettling worlds of the imagination.

Also includes stories by: Jenn Adams, Jenna Bowman, Scott Bryan, Julie Frost, Effie Graves, Joni B. Haws, Laurie Heath, Sariah Horowitz, Jonathan Humphries, Norm Jenson, Craig Kingsman, Gregory Lemon, C.H. Lindsay, Victoria Lisowski, Terra Luft, Anna Marasco, Justin C. Matthews, J.T.

These eleven authors looked beyond the traditional wind-rattled Victorian mansions and stately plantation houses shrouded in moss to introduce us to contemporary Gothic locations hiding in plain sight. In LOVE AMONG THE THORNS, the fog and forests of the Pacific Northwest cloud your vision, before blowing away to reveal the wind-swept plains of Montana. The damp of the Louisiana bayou gives way to the glittering lights of Manhattan. Across the ocean, secrets lie behind the walls of grand estates in the forests of Germany and the windy crags of Scotland, and danger lurks beneath the deep blue waters of the Mediterranean. In each locale, the sense of things not being quite right, not quite what they seem on the surface beckons you forward.
Whatever the setting or obstacles placed before the lovers, the stories in LOVE AMONG THE THORNS focus on the relationships that develop between the characters, bringing them from strangers – or even antagonists – to the point where they leave the story hand-in-hand, with futures possible only because of the hardships they had to overcome to achieve them.

As writers, we often wonder what we can do to make a difference in the world. Participating in projects like YEARNING TO BREATHE FREE is one of those things we can do – putting our pens and keyboards to work for a good cause, and giving writers and readers an opportunity to act. All profits from the sale of YEARNING TO BREATHE FREE will be donated to the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES), a non-profit charity who has led the fight in making sure that immigrants in detention centers have access to legal protection, ensuring that those detained can gain access to basic goods and services.
The stories in YEARNING TO BREATHE FREE reach across genre borders, touching on themes of family, immigration, hardship, and times of darkness and desperation; but, most important, deliver a sense of hope, shining a light – however small – in the darkness.
