In Support of Transgressive Fiction

I’m one of the authors contributing to a new anthology of transgressive fiction from Outcast Press coming out later this year called “In Filth It Shall Be Found.” For those of you who know my work, you know that transgressive fiction is a genre that’s near and dear to my heart.

There’s a small, but marginal market for transgressive fiction novels. However, for short story writers, the market is almost nonexistent. Outcast Press hopes to change that. They strive to always pay writers a fair price for their pieces, but the biggest challenge is cash flow.

For the new anthology, Outcast Press has put together a Kickstarter campaign to ensure every writer is paid fairly for their work. If you’re interested in donating, even putting $5 toward this campaign gets you an ebook of the published anthology + your name in the dedication section.
