Win! A copy of New Release Barnabas Tew and the Case of the Nine Worlds by Columbkill Noonan.( @ColumbkillNoon1 @rararesources )

ABOUT

Hold your flying horses!
Barnabas and Wilfred, two earnest but bumbling Victorian detectives, travel through the Nine Worlds of Norse mythology, trying to stave off the impending end of the world, an event which the locals call “Ragnarok”. This time around, however, the intrepid twosome has some help: a brave Viking seer named Brynhild and her flying horse.
Can the two plucky detectives and the fearsome Brynhild outwit those who would bring about Ragnarok? Will they survive the harsh conditions and terrifying creatures of the Norse afterlife? Will they save the world…again?

Cover Reveal! Persona Non Grata.

personacoverimage

 

Blurb:

This anthology reflects the experiences of those who, due to environmental, economical, and personal circumstances, have found themselves as ‘outsiders’ in society.

 

 

Just like the first anthology, Please Hear what I’m not Saying, which Isabelle edited, Persona Non Grata will raise money for a Crisis Aid, and a Homeless, charity (the details TBA)

 

 

I’m so excited about this anthology! I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy.

The Ink Pantry, six poems by Linda M. Crate

but it’s exhausting always being
on the look out
it’s tiring always having to think
of the worst case scenario—
they insist that there’s
no such thing as rape culture,
but if that were true
i wouldn’t be holding onto my keys
like a weapon
every time i leave my house;
don’t give me your ignorance or your perspective
give me a change so i can believe that
“not all men” are truly accepting
of our culture as is,
and all it’s many flaws

Cabildo Quarterly two poems by Sam Rose

Pussy Magic Heals poems by Rebecca Kokitus

my father used to warn me
about swallowing the pits of fruit
told me a cherry tree would grow in my belly
cherry falls out of me in the shower
hits the tub with a smack
and disappears down the drain
