KW Taylor: New Dog Star Books author!

Some facts you might not know about speculative fiction writer K.W. Taylor: Like me, she is from Dayton, Ohio. By law, all Dayton writers must go by their initials for publication.

COVER REVEAL: The Underside of the Rainbow by B. E. Burkhead

UNVEILING THE RAINBOW Artist Steven Archer has created a raw, textured cover to match B.E. Burkhead’s gritty, and unapologetic realism. In this poetry collection Burkhead shows readers what happens when they take off their rose-colored glasses and look at the world around them. Instead of fields of freshly grown flowers, he writes of alleys with […]

In Which We Discuss Why We’re All Really Here

Thanks for joining me as I continue the tour of my new Web site! The next tab at the top of the page I’d like to discuss is named “Books.” I only have two fiction publications so far. But they’re both pretty epic, so you’ll have to excuse the short list. In 2014, a friend […]
