Many thanks to Christi Craig for hosting the cover reveal for Broad Knowledge: 35 Women Up To No Good. We changed covers after the Kickstarter, and the old cover was our Kickstarter exclusive!

To reach the open sea, they’d have to be relentless and brave.

Tammy Sparks at Books, Bones & Buffy: Adventures in Speculative Fiction interviewed me about this kickstarter! “Because June is Pride Month, it’s particularly fitting that your Kickstarter is so inclusive, with a variety of sexual and gender identifying writers.” Very grateful for her generosity.

We’ve also been selected as a “Project We Love” by Kickstarter, which is pretty dang cool.

Today, we spotlight two stories of watery creatures providing a way past abuse.

“A Fish Tale” by Sabrina Vourvoulias in Sharp & Sugar Tooth:

and “Think, Baby Turtle” by Mingzhao Xu in Broad Knowledge (from which today’s title comes):

 

About the Authors

It was named to Latinidad’s Best Books of 2012. Her short stories have appeared at Uncanny Magazine, Tor.com, Strange Horizons, Crossed Genres, and in a number of anthologies, including Long Hidden: Speculative Fiction from the Margins of History (Fox and Older, eds.), The Year’s Best Young Adult Speculative Fiction 2015 (Twelfth Planet Press; Krasnostein and Rios, eds.), and Latino/a Rising (Wings Press; Goodwin, ed.) in 2017. She is a the Managing Editor of Integrated Media at NBC10/Telemundo62 in Philadelphia, and her columns and commentary have appeared at Philadelphia Magazine, City and State Pennsylvania, and The Guardian US. She lives in Pennsylvania with her husband, daughter and a dog who rules the household.

Mingzhao Xu immigrated to the United States from China as a child. One of her greatest joys in life is using fiction to highlight the humor, challenges and pathos of her childhood. She currently lives in California.

Kickstarting Women Up To No Good!

 

Projects like the VIDA Count have demonstrated that women account for startlingly less than half of those published, and writers of marginalized sex and gender identities account for much less than their presence in the general population.

To help counteract that—and also because we thought it would be fun—we started the Women Up To No Good series, which focuses on “bad” women, and “good” women who just haven’t been caught yet.

There are other imbalances too, most notably race, and while we have no formal requirement for inclusion of writers of color, we strive for diversity in all of our anthologies.

Broad Knowledge: 35 Women Up To No Good and Sharp & Sugar Tooth: Women Up To No Good are anthologies of writing by women and authors of marginalized sex and gender identities, about female protagonists whose knowledge or appetites are critical to their stories.

We’re raising money to be able to pay our authors professional rates, and to properly promote the anthologies so they get the attention they deserve. Our hope is to get the Women Up To No Good series on a solid enough footing that sales of the books will support all future anthologies.
