Crows on Heartstrings is a collection of doomed love stories.
Our writers craft harrowing tales of families torn apart by entities unknown, lovers cursed by fairies, siblings fighting monsters, and more. No type of love is safe from our tragedies. Gay, straight, romantic, familial, friendly, no matter what your shape or color, we have something for you and we are coming for you. We also take our anti-discriminatory viewpoint and stretch it across genres. We have fantasy, sci-fi, supernatural, period, and contemporary pieces.
These aren't just romances, they're epic tales of doom. I can't wait to steal your heart and shatter it a little!
And as if that isn't enough, we have haunting imagery from only the most talented artists, just to twist the knife. Did you think we were done? Because we even have comics and poems, all doomed.
But it's better to love and to have lost, isn't it?
Crows on Heartstrings started as an open call for Artists and Illustrators. It took months to narrow down the talent until we had only the best up and coming authors and illustrators working for us.
If you want our stories as much as we want to share them, we’re going to need help breaking your heart. Your money will go to the printing and distribution of this book. Don't let our characters suffer for nothing
We are only asking for help publishing and marketing the book. We only want to share it. Your money will go to printing the book via Book Baby, where we can sell not only online and on Amazon and Barnes & Noble, but bring Crows on Heartstrings to your local bookstore.

Risks and challenges
The biggest challenge for us will be compiling the book. By this stage, the book is in the last stages of editing and the artwork is almost complete.
Because we are self publishing, we can push the release date back a month from May 27th, 2016, but we plan to be ready by then.
