Rough Magick Anthology
Collection of stories curated by Francesca Lia Block and Jessa Marie Mendez
E-book available for $3.99 here

Have you ever fallen in love with the wrong person? Have you ever obsessed over an ex in an unhealthy way? Have you ever felt lost in love? Consumed by love? In a love that felt dark and dangerous? Do you believe that love is magical? Do you long for stories about love that are different and complex, subversive, passionate, unusual, breathtaking, complicated and/or possibly otherworldly?

If you answered yes to any of the above, or more than one of the above (or, well, all of them like me), Rough Magick Anthology is waiting to be your next obsession.


This amazing collection of stories about love are all those things, and more. These stories are addictive, gorgeously written, raw, wild, brave and bold, and overwhelmingly wonderful. They are full of heart and soul and love and all those in-between places that make us ache and dance and blush rose colors and open our eyes so very wide and weep and wail and rejoice. These stories are a rough magick, in the best possible way.


I have read them all, and then set the pages back and read them again. I have my favorites, but I’d rather you read them ALL and find your own favorites (oh, and then come tell me what they are).


I’ve fallen so hard for these stories that I’ve even started to put together a playlist to go along with the collection. Perhaps when I’m done I will share it here, too.

Authors featured: Amanda Yates Garcia (the Oracle of Los Angeles), Jessa Marie Mendez (co-curator, as well), Ashley Inguanta, Daniel Weizmann, Mary Pauline Lowry, Justina Aura Nemoy, Sarah Herrington, Francesca Padilla, Alise Wascom, Tracy DeBrincat, Manuel Chavarria, Denise Hamilton, Laura Lee Bahr, Logan Brendt (who is also the model in the book photos above, and book cover designer), Genevieve Salazar, Jilly Dreadful, K.T. Ismael, Kira Lees, Tegam Webb, C.N. Blakemore and Francesca Lia Block.

All that talent for only $3.99. What are you waiting for? Go now go!!!
