We are preparing for the 4th edition of our fabulous brochure/eZine. It will go live September 2020!

The next one will not only showcase our members books, products and services, but will include exclusive articles for anyone who loves books and the creative community.

Due to all the cool articles within the brochure we are going to start calling it an eZine. As we transition you may notice us interchange brochure and eZine occasionally as we adjust to the new name.
