10 Tips for Surviving the Slush Pile

Hey, Feisty Ones! It’s officially summer! As many know, here at Transmundane Press, we are in the works for a fire anthology. Well, guess who reads all the stories. Me. So, as we are working our way through the pile from hell (size not quality), I can’t help but think about the other publishing companies…

So, I quit my job.

Hey, Feisty Ones! So, I quit my job. Not my job here at the press, but the part time job that’s been keeping me from working here. I won’t go into details, but I will tell you about what happened this week that caused me to quit. Let’s do it in a series of days….

Interview with Author Alisha Costanzo

Can you tell us a little about your main protagonist, Ria, and what’s gotten her here? Ria is a bit of a smart mouth. She’s independent because she’s needed to be—after losing her grandparents and never knowing her parents, but now, she has to cooperate and think of much more than her own survival. In…

Embrace Your Anxiety

Hey, my Feisty Ones! “Excuse my awkwardness, I have anxiety,” I say as I walk into the Chambers’ house. This day is unlike any other day. The Chambers’ house is full of laughter and whines. Usually a quiet bliss now holds a new adult, four children, and a small dog. Usually, I am very insecure…

Not Sappy, Just Grateful

Hey feisty ones! Many know that I am the intern here at Transmundane Press. Well, as the spring semester of college ends, I wondered what would happen to my internship.

Why Vampires Won’t Die: they’re still relevant in literature

The recent trend of the undead (or living dead) has left the market saturated. We all know it.

In graduate school, I submitted my vampire novel as my thesis project and got vague…

Dead Week

Hello, my Feisty ones! It is dead week… *screams in exhaustion* A lot of college students are going through something that happens every semester. Finals. These are the worst days of our lives.

It’s Just a Bad Day

Hey, feisty ones! Unfortunately, I am not having a good day. It’s not anything that happened or something someone did. I just don’t feel like my normal self. I’m usually very hyper and bubbly. I’ve always wondered why I get into this mood sometimes. I get plenty of sleep, eat well, exercise mind and body….

Beauty and the Beast Black Forest Cupcakes! by Amanda Iles

A tale as old and as classic as Beauty and the Beast deserves its own cupcake. Inspired by the recent release of Disney’s live action movie (and my friend who is obsessed with both the story and coconut), the following is a recipe for Beauty and the Beast black forest cupcakes. Now, I know the…

Washi What You Say to Me

Hey, feisty ones! I have a confession to make. I have an addiction, or at least what society deems as an addiction. Ooh mighty washi tape! For your glory, I would give my first-born son. Specifically, the washi tape with cats. I use washi tape in every aspect of my life. On my planner, hell…

Ali Abbas, the author of Like Clockwork was kind enough to answer a few questions for us. We hope you enjoy his interview; we did.   How much research did you do for Like Clockwork, and how much came from experience? I worked for the Royal Navy for a while (in a civilian, non-sailing capacity)….
