The blurb: The name on the screen was “Absinthe.” But I knew her as the sultry voice blowing up my phone for late night chats about Proust and Hemingway interspersed between the filthiest little … mutually satisfying exchanges … I’d ever experienced in my life.  We’d never met.  Until the day she walked into my […]

The concept: What if you gave six authors the same blurb? Would the stories look anything the same? Or would they be as different as the authors writing them? The blurb: You know those people that have a house full of motivational slogans? Embrace Every Moment, stamped on their coffee mugs. Always Kiss Me Goodnight […]

     The blurb: Sela Halstead lost her innocence in a way that no sixteen-year-old should ever have to endure.

The incriminating ink belongs to Jonathon Townsend, […]
