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):

The day dawns as red as fresh blood on a fishing boat’s deck. My dad’s not so sure that building flamethrowers and rockets in the driveway is such a good idea.
