Hi Travis; new to fictionaut and love it. I'm editing an anthology, The Velvet Chamber ( which asks writers to revision or subvert classic texts, myth or fairy tale. Featured in Still looking for a few good writers, Susan Tepper is submitting, and her piece, The Fall of Love will appear on the website on Wednesday. Thanks, all best, LA Slugocki
