An amazing thing is happening.

I posted something a week ago. It was not unlike other posts. "Sales are slow. If you'fe thinking of buying a book, stop by our webpage. Here are a few suggestions."

It got shared around a bit. I think it even generated a sale or two.

And then it made it to Tumblr. And someone who is trying to stay out of the limelight posted something. And it took off. We have been getting sales literally faster than we can print out orders. Even if this stops suddenly, the sales are something this store has not experienced in a long time. Enough sales to pay some bills and look forward.

This is made possible by a whole lot of caring people. I thank each and every one of you. And each of you was inspired to act by someone who was acting as an ambassador to the store. You, too can be an ambassador. When your friends talk about books, mention us. If you are lucky enough to live in one of the (very) few places which still has an indie LGBT bookstore, please support it. If not, we can be your bookstore. Why buy from a megacorp, when you can buy from a store which shares your values?

The listings on this site represent just a few recommendations. We are always trying to put new stuff up. But we can fulfill most orders of books in print. Just put your search information in the search field (above). And if you are looking for recommendations, we are happy to provide some. After all, that's one of the things which makes a bricks and mortar store special. Caring book lovers who can help you find something you enjoy. Drop us an email. Give us a call. The answer won't be an algorithm. It will be something a real person thought about.

We are a staff of three people and one dog. We are working hard to fulfill this avalanche of orders. We thank you for your support, and we thank you for your patience.
