Here are some things for this month:
*This weekend we'll be tabling at Amazine Day
, a small press and zine fair that we're also helping organize and leading workshops at. If you're in Portland, come by and say hi!
*It's the third month of our Fan Club
and it's going incredibly well. We're having fun with it.
*Thanks to the advice of our dear pal Bob Schwenkler (and thanks to our fierce dedication to always being five years behind the times), we're now on Twitter
*And we're also working on updating our Links page
, so please check out all our awesome friends.
