Note: I understand that the concept of Content Warnings or Trigger Warnings is a contentious one. I will assure you now; every book I publish will have a Content Note attached to it. My content warnings can be found on the back of the book, a brief note before the beginning of the book, AND here on my website. Please also understand that I have less control over anthologies in which my stories appear, so I can only leave content notes where they are allowed.
