The Synopsis:

A never-ending storm rages, tossing a dark and bottomless sea. Tentacled beasts reach from every direction, a battle at every turn, but they’ve chosen the wrong target. Armed with teeth and sharp weapons of her own, she’ll fight until there’s nothing left, and then she’ll pick herself up and fight again. For this is what we do.
Laurel Hightower, author of Below and Crossroads, delivers the blow that shatters the glass ceiling into twenty deadly shards-each reflecting horrors faced by women. Unwelcomed advances from dangerous men. The unbearable weight of motherhood. A goddess pushed to her limits. The inescapable responsibilities of being a caretaker, even beyond the grave.
Dive in for Hightower’s most beloved short stories, all brought together in one collection which includes five brand new tales. Navigate the stormy waters of womanhood with caution as you are about to experience the horrors that every woman knows. 


“Prose that guts like a fish knife: Hightower’s newest collection is jewelled with stories of the rarest kind, tales that are at once filled with a deep beauty and an indelible sense of horror. A gorgeous treat of a book.” -Gemma Amor, Bram Stoker Award nominated author of Dear Laura 

“Laurel Hightower writes with searing lyricism.  Her graceful, clear-eyed stories seize hold of the reader with the first line and do not let go as they hurtle towards endings terrible and true.  These fictions brand the mind; they burn themselves onto the soul.” -John Langan, author of Corpsemouth and Other Autobiographies

“Laurel Hightower knocks it out of the park with this collection of dark fantasy and horror stories. These fierce, feminine tales aren’t for the weak; they’re drenched with the very specific terror of what it means to live in a woman’s skin.” -Izzy Lee, writer/director of Memento Mori and Meat Friend

“Every Woman Knows This is a superb collection packed with truths disguised as fiction. Hightower delves deep into darkness to show us what hides there, and to illuminate what it means to be a woman in a plethora of contexts. Short, sharp, creepy, and endlessly entertaining, this is Hightower’s best work yet.” -Gabino Iglesias, Edgar Award nominated author of The Devil Takes You Home
