Swords, Sorcery, & Self-Rescuing Damsels

Now available now at all digital bookstores:

Kirkus Reviews says“Though each interprets the anthology’s theme a little differently, this sentiment from Jasperson is representative of the volume’s self-assured, spell-casting ebullience: “Three weeks ago, I was a slave, afraid of shadows. Now I am Thorn Girl, friend of minotaurs and mages. Kerk was right. Inside of me is a woman who can do anything.

“The tone ranges from light to dark … the diversity of premises and worlds makes for a delightfully unpredictable reading experience. … A hoard of fantasy tales that proves damsels can be as dangerous as dragons.”
