Flatrock a collection of poetry by Fran Lock:
"'Fran Lock uses words as tools or sometimes, weapons, to aid her personal journey of inner exploration: a brutal but strangely romantic journey that exults in the power of poetry to unlock imagery in minds and hearts. A fine addition to anyone's poetry collection. ' ~ Joolz Denby

Vagabondage Press is currently seeking submissions for stand-alone, royalty paying publication for the following 'genres'. We are particularly interested in fiction from diverse perspectives featuring characters from all cultures, ethnicities and orientations.

Magical Realism:
Seeking magical realism tales of 10-18K words for anthology series. Each to be published singly in digital release with a final print collection for release October 2012.

Love Stories / Romances:
Seeking well-written, atypical and quirky love stories of any length 12K-90K. No formulaic romances, please. Happy ending, ambiguous ending, everyone-dies-in-the-end-just-like-Hamlet endings; gay, straight, smutty, sweet, anything goes as long as the writing's top-notch.

Seeking intelligent coming-of-age stories of 12K-90K suitable for the young and emerging adult reader (17-24) and adult readers alike. Edgy and controversial young adult fiction is fine; nothing that talks down or condescends.

Women's Fiction:
Seeking contemporary women's fiction for the 21st century, length 12K-90K, for stand along publication. Particularly interested in multi-cultural and international perspectives.

Seeking well-written horror and paranormal fiction of 12K-90K. Gothic, hauntings, disturbing, nightmare producing or humorous.

Romantic Poetry:
Seeking romantic and passionate poetry for an anthology to be released for Valentine's Day, 2012.
