COMING MAY 2020

We are pleased to present plans for a companion volume to our previous anthology! Coming in May of 2020, “Little Boy Lost: More Tales of Youth Disrupted” will be a second multi-author anthology filled with stories of adversity, misadventure, and more in a variety of exciting genres. These tales shall feature an unfortunate host of boys and budding young men who find themselves lost…often in more ways than one.
