Heather Royston at She Never Slept reviews More Scary Kisses and scores it 4 out of 5.
"I’ve been looking forward to reading “More Scary Kisses” since I finished the first volume awhile back and I’d been saving it for awhile. I finally got to crack it recently and was quite excited at what goodies it would hold. The introduction only fueled my excitement."

Sara Warneke, who wrote under the pseudonym Sara Douglass, lost her battle with cancer this morning, 27 September.
We're deeply saddened at this loss, and poorer that she is no longer with us. We are also richer for the time we had with her.
One of the first things Sara said, when we approached her about collecting her short stories, was that she probably wouldn't be here to see the book published. Sadly she was right. We were able to give her an advanced reading copy a couple of weeks ago.
Farewell Ms Douglass.
UPDATE 7 JUNE 2016.
Due to some unforeseen family health issues, we are closed to all unsolicited submissions until further notice.
If you do have something under submission with us, we will endeavour to get back to you ASAP.
Many thanks for your patience and understanding.
