FROM THE EDITOR

Things are picking up. My 24/7 secure shopping card is working pretty well, but too many folks think I only accept checks. They miss the PayPal TOTALLY SECURE credit card payment option where you don’t have to be a member of paypal to process the order in the fastest way. Otherwise, my shopping cart will let you pick Library rate for mail, but you have to be a Library to get Library Rate. Also, it sometimes forgets to charge NY residents sales tax. If you live in NY you know you have to pay it. Obviously, I’m still working out the bugs, so thanks for your patience.

I’ll be in Manhattan (shop not open) Thursday March 24th, otherwise, the shop is open Tues through Sat afternoons 12-5 until Spring, with my apologies for the inconvenience.

BOOK NEWS & GOSSIP

#To Recap the last six months: My old ISP went bankrupt last fall, tying up my domain name and closing my web store for 3 months. Sales are only now getting back to normal (post recession normal). Then my system locked up with a debilitating computer virus in November, so I had to get a new laptop to continue. The result . . .

#I find myself devoting more time to my writing and my cooking than I do bookselling. I will always have a bookstore, whether brick&mortar and web, or just web-based, but it can’t be my primary income at this point. We will see what the future brings. Meanwhile, I’m healthy, I have enough money to pay my bills, and I’m doing things I love to do. I wish you the same.
