May | Dressed in Sibilant Sentences & Rhymes
an interview with Tsering Wangmo Dhompa

Tsering Wangmo Dhompa


Tsering Wangmo Dhompa: “It is 8:31am now. The sense of the simultaneity of everything that has passed in this minute is ordered into the sense of a sentence. There is a sequence to the sounds. There is order. But that is not how I experience these sounds and sensations. I am aware of this incommensurability everyday. The language I use has a structure that indicates or builds on the independence of things whereas everything is interlocked and interdependent.

A wrangling implies a quarrel, a tussle where one thing battles with the other. I want to suggest instead, that we think of ways of listening, of opening wider and wider so that there’s always room for something else to exist, or to co-exist.


I have lived without my mother for twenty years. But every day, I take some time to close my eyes. I recall her face, I hear her voice. I bring her voice, and her image to the forefront for just a few minutes. It’s a way of listening.” [excerpt]

Reese Monroe Author- MARKED BY HADES (Bound by Hades #2)

      MARKED BY HADES (Bound by Hades #2)

      One choice away from eternity…

by Reese Monroe

For 911 years, Gatekeeper companion Justin Bradford has denied the possibility of being mated to only one woman. He enjoys them all too much to settle down. So when he feels his mate’s Ahavah mark surface, his first instinct is to ignore it. But when he sees the leather-clad beauty in need of his help that’s easier said than done…

Yvonne wakes up naked on a cold park bench in a small town with no memory of who—or what—she is. All she knows is the gentle man who woke her was turned to dust when she touched him. And now the strange mark that appeared on her shoulder throbs in the presence of the raven-haired man now offering to help her…

As Justin and Yvonne navigate the mystery of her past, their bond grows, but the secrets they discover and the sacrifices that must be made could be enough to rip them apart for eternity.

Natalie Wright Author- H . A . L . F . THE DEEP BENEATH


by Natalie Wright

H . A . L . F . Book 1

H . A . L . F . 9 has taken his first breath of desert air and his first steps in the human world.  Created to be a weapon, he proved too powerful for his makers and has lived a sedated life hidden from humans.  But he has escaped the underground lab he called home, and the sedation has worn off.  He has never been more alive.  More powerful.  And more deadly.

Erika Holt longs to ride her motocycle east until pavement gives way to shore.  She bides her time until graduation when she’ll escape the trailer she shares with her alcoholic mother and memories of her dead father.  But a typical night in the desert with friends thrusts Erika into a situation more dangerous than she ever imagines.

Circumstances push the two together, and each must make a fateful choice.  Will Erika assist   H . A . L . F . 9 in his escape despite her “don’t get involved” rule?  and will  H . A . L . F . 9 let Erika live despite the fact he was trained to kill?

The two may need to forget their rules and training if either is to survive the dangers of the deep beneath them.
