So, hey, first things first. Alisa Schreibman is the same person as Allie Berg. Allie’s just a pseudonym for those super-racy romances I probably won’t be writing many more of.
“Hamsa, Hamsa, Hamsa, Tfu, Tfu, Tfu,” is a story I wrote that was included in the anthology, Upside Down: Inverted Tropes in Storytelling that was published last year when I was too crazy to post about it.

Guess who is the luckiest author ever. If you guessed me, you are SO right.
The lovely and talented Syneca Featherstone heard that a fellow author was having some financial trouble. Instead of internet hugs, she decided to do something serious. She created this amazing cover design and then raffled it off, $10 bucks a pop, all proceeds to go to that author friend.

Give a character a scene with a pet or a kid and that character’s instantly more relatable. That is, as long as the pet doesn’t steal the show. Fortunately Essie, the heroine of A New Dawn, isn’t the type to complain about being upstaged by a critter, or else she’d have left the building already.
Nearly every reader who’s had something to say about my book so far has commented on Smithy, the lame-legged, smelly, stubborn boar who eats from Essie’s compost heap and guards her house in return. I got a death threat from one of my editors for a scene I won’t spoil for you, because the boar’s fate was up in the air. The lovely Lily declared herself on “Team Smithy” from the outset, and the overly optimistic spouse said I could live off the merchandising rights for Smithy alone. Read On
