Making Out Like a Virgin: Sex, Desire & Intimacy After Sexual Trauma 
October 2016 / Editors Catriona McHardy and Cathy Plourde

A unique and moving collection of personal nonfiction essays that detail how each writer has moved beyond mere survival of sexual trauma to unapologetically discover a sexually and emotionally thriving life.

Shortlisted in the top ten for 2017 FOREWORD Indie’s Best Book (Self Help), Animal Mineral couldn’t be prouder of Portlyn Media’s inaugural book. Unfortunately, it’s a book that only grows more relevant with each #MeToo, with each new headline, and, perhaps more importantly, for all of those who have suffered trauma, regardless of whether or not they will have a day of justice and reckoning.

Iphigenia Murphy 
by Sara Hosey

This debut novel is a coming-of-age contemporary young adult novel set in 1990's New York City. A character of contradictions (a native New Yorker who's only been to Manhattan on school trips, a Colombian/Irish skater girl, an urban camper), Iffy must grapple not only with the central question of adolescence — Who do I want to be? — but of adulthood: Just what would I do protect myself and those I love? 

Coming 2018.
