Indie Blu(e) Publishing Partners with The Kali Project

Indie Blu(e) Publishing

The Kali Project was conceived by indie writers and editors Candice Louisa Daquin and Megha Sood. A dear friend starting a feminist micro press was intrigued and suggested that The Kali Project serve as their inaugural publication.
