About

WHAT IS TRANSCENDENT?

A massive anthology with a range of styles, themes, and genres, these seventy-one stories celebrate the weirder sides of our psyche.

A parallel dimension exists below the surface of reality.

Its doors swing open every time we sleep, allowing us passage into the land of DREAMS, a plane rich with exotic fantasy and limitless bliss. Within this wonder world, however, lurk dark corridors and terrible creatures—some unfortunate travelers never escape the NIGHTMARES waiting in the shadows.

Many have tried bridging our worlds. Seekers and wise men have meditated for VISIONS and ingested intoxicants for HALLUCINATIONS in hopes that the veil between our realms will thin, allowing access to all the thrills, joys, and horrors beyond our senses.

TRANSCENDENT is an open gate, a gangway linking our realm to the shimmering sphere where nothing is certain and anything is possible.

WHY SHOULD YOU CARE?

Our goal is simple, we’re offering limited-edition bundles and discounts to anyone who pre-orders this collection.

And the more money we raise, the more benefits for everyone. The authors will get paid more, and readers will get more swag! Win-win.

Get to know more about our authors with their Featured Author Interviews and Guest Posts on our blog. And story trailers and excerpts on YouTube.

WHAT ARE WE DOING WITH YOUR MONEY?

Well, first, we’re having your pre-order boxes manufactured.

Second, we’re paying our authors more for the hard work they put into not only writing and editing these stories, but also, for giving us extra guest posts, interviews, flash fiction, story trailers, and readings to help connect and engage with our readers. With you.

What will we do with what’s left over? Invest it, of course. In marketing. In our authors. In events. In more books!
