Go forth and shop at your local independent bookstores! Here is a partial list of indie bookstores in the Twin Cities. Another one which includes the used bookstores (and some non-indie ones that you can shop at later if so inclined). And there's IndieBound for ordering online and finding yet more bookstores in your area. Indie bookstores (and other locally owned businesses) are good for the economy and good for you! Check them out!

I was just at a tea this afternoon where we were talking about The Other Change of Hobbit Bookstore. I checked Facebook when I got home and learned that they are on the brink of closing immediately. You can learn more and donate on their website, as well as ordering books. They also have an Abe page. Please buy books, donate if you can and boost the signal.

What I am up to? Working dealing with my ongoing personal stuff (house, Mom, etc.) and writing. Yes, writing my little fingers off. So far this week, I have drafted a novel synopsis and am trying to get my three first chapters rewritten and into sendable shape. Also outlining and more outlining, which will soon become a novel summary. Hoping to get this done soon so I can go back to juggling new project + Blood Moon, which will undoubtedly entail more outlining.

Swung by Uncle Hugo's to sign copies of A Day at the Inn, A Night at the Palace and Other Stories, Hellebore and Rue, Haunted Hearths and Sapphic Shades, Night's Kiss and Crave as well as my stories in So Fey: Queer Fairy Fiction and Time Well Bent this morning. I'm really pleased to have my books in another local bookstore, something which is often a struggle for small press authors.

Speaking of which,
True Colors Bookstore in Minneapolis, oldest feminist bookstore in the world at this point, will have to closeup shop  at the end of February unless they get an investor or a new owner. I'm pretty bummed about this, seeing as the owner is a friend of mine and I go to a lot of readings there, both my own and other people's. If you know anyone who'd like to own all of part of an indie bookstore, please spread the word.
In the meantime, please shop there (they also carry signed copies of all my books, just saying).
