From PerVisions Magazine: "Laura Keating’s “The Kissing Gate” ...


... is a gorgeous piece that intertwines the in-between world of memory, growing up, and young female friendships in a way that manages to capture the nebulous nature of all three. This is her first professional sale, and I hope you’re as impressed with her debut as I am."


"Clever and daring, the artful reimaginings in this delightful collection of ten new tales offer readers another look at the fairy tale villains they thought they knew. Whether they are helping instead of hurting or appearing in unexpected forms, you will never quite look at giants or ogres the same way again."

Includes stories by Jessica Lee Anderson, Melanie Cole, K.L. Critchley, J.G. Formato, John Linwood Grant, Justine Cogan Gunn, Laura Keating, Laura Ring, Hope Erica Schultz, and Lisa Timpf.


"It’s amazing the kinds of monsters you can find in an old closet. Whether it’s a dragon in a hotel room or a Bigfoot baby in an abandoned mansion, the monsters hiding in the closets come in all shapes and sizes. In this collection of ten exciting tales, monsters help show us what it is to be human." 


Includes stories by Elliot Addison, Jessica Lee Anderson, Susan Bianculli, Melanie Cole, Jaime Formato, John Linwood Grant, Laura Keating, Jonathan Lahr, Hope Erica Schultz, and Lisa Timpf.
