NEW! A Red Witch receives its first review!
"Make no mistake, j/j and Juliet do not shy away from excess—from mysterious risks—from gore or the gruesome bits—in fact, they wallow in it. At times, the book is a dizzy mess of flesh—and other times, an acid-blotted nightmare"

NEW in The Rising Phoenix Review again (Blood on the unpillowed cases)!
"My fireworks are not even in control
of the red blood cells turning
into glowing alien space ships
dripping down. An onslaught
of tiny strobe lights, of red snow
hitting my windshield.
Three dead birds on the top of my head
had wanted to fly inside my brain,
but never made it past the cracked hat."
from my poem "Blood on the unpillowed cases", newly appearing within The Rising Phoenix Review
