Pipe and Thimble Author Resources
Disclaimer: I know nothing about this bookstore, anyone who is affiliated with it in any way, any of these people, or businesses, on this list of author resources. Do your research and be careful. Look before you leap, in other words. I love the fact that an independent bookstore is helping out their local community and the writing community, which is why I put it on this list, although avoid taking that as an endorsement or recommendation or suggestion to avail yourself of any of these resources.
