Sponsor Spotlight


BANNED: Taboo Books, Bites & Libations is just a couple of days away! So in the excitement and anticipation, I wanted to give you a taste of what's in store. Below is a list of pretty much everything that will be included in the auction at the event. I may still have a couple of things around here that haven't made it on here yet, so there may be more!! 

They're in no particular order, most were entered into a spreadsheet as they came in the door, others were loosely grouped together for one reason or another. This list represents a variety of items: Signed copies, Hardcover, Pbk, and ARCs in a variety of genres, gift cards and other gifts from area businesses.
What are you most excited about from the list?

Benjamin Hale's debut novel, BRUNO, definitely. "Did I dare to eat a peach? Indeed I did."

BRUNO LITTLEMORE is a great choice! It should do really well when it pubs. :-)
