In the middle of April, we will be publishing three books in three days — details below — and effing good books they are too. So good that we want your help telling the world about them, ideally by writing a review.

Now, here’s some stuff about the books.

An international collection of poetry and short fiction edited by Rachel Nix.

Raw, diverse, and impassioned. A wake-up call.
— Sade Andria Zabala, columnist for Art-Parasites and author of WAR SONGS and Coffee and Cigarettes
A collection that sings.
— Donna-Marie Riley, author of Love and Other Small Wars

April 16 — Ted Cruz Smiles and a Baby Dies
Welcome to a world where the banks have collapsed, medical care is unattainable, and you have to worship at the right church to get a job at Walmart. A world where women are chattel, ‘Mexicans’ are deported, and Muslims are rounded up and sent to camps.
In the interests of remaining squeaky clean and totally impartial during the no-holds-barred Republican cripple fight, this book will also be available as The Emperor Donald’s Tiny Penis Flatters His Stubby Fingers (And Vice Versa) so you can ‘vote’ for the sack of shite of your choice.
Available as a paperback, an ebook, and a recurring nightmare.
I know you want to hold my hand. I know you’re gonna love my band. Yeah.
