'…”Maybe they want to be us,” my sister mused one morning as she lay on her belly in the living room, watching the crows out the cathedral window that let in enough light to have us sunning like cats, only half lucid in our laziness. “Maybe they want earrings and necklaces and fancy hats.” She rolled onto her back, stretching with a scowl. “But that's stupid. I'd rather fly.”

I bared my teeth in a slow sneer, wrinkling my nose in the disdain of the older and wiser in the face of a silly suggestion, but she never saw it, her attention caught and held by the trio of crows holding court in the yard…’ - Steenburgh, ‘The Way of Sisters’ from Fight Like a Girl.

'Way of Sisters' was written for my sister, who I lost in 2011, and it is thick with crows. Anyone who backs the current anthology, Mobbing Midnight, at $75 or higher will receive a recording of me reading the story as well as their selected backer reward.
