The Gift of an Imaginary Girl
By Kristy Webster
Published September 21st, 2015 by A Word with You Press.
In this collection of magical realism tales, award-winning author and artist Kristy Webster offers hope and inspiration to those who never really imagined they fit in. Coco is the name a young girl assigns to her deformity, a third arm with which she is born. Coco is able to transform despair into joy, and impact an entire village, effusing everyone with hope and inspiration, until Coco's own transformation takes place.
Other stories are equally fantastical, and are illustrated by the artist.

Edited by Sarah Herrin
Haunt Box is a collection of haunting poetry of four distinct and talented female voices. Each writer showcases a unique style - from Kristy's intense imagery to Lori's clever plays on word, to Victoria's calm outlook and Sarah's heartfelt insights - and invokes raw emotions in the reader and invokes a challenge to change the way one looks at daily life. The poetry of Haunt Box addresses the unavoidable scars made by living life fearlessly and offers a healing salve in the knowledge that one is never alone.
