Bookshop is an online bookstore with a mission to financially support local, independent bookstores. If you want to find a specific local bookstore to support, find them on the Bookshop map and they’ll receive the full profit from your order. Otherwise, you can start at my online bookshop. Either way, your order will contribute to an earnings pool that will be evenly distributed among independent bookstores (even those that don’t use Bookshop).
I’m pleased to announce that I’m working on a new newsletter!
Creative Climate will be a weekly newsletter about climate fiction and other works of climate creativity.
The free version will include a weekly round-up of stories related to creative projects with climate themes: novels, short stories, films, music, art, and so on. It might also include some creative nonfiction and stories about creative solutions to the climate crisis.
The paid version will include new climate-themed short fiction and poetry. This will initially involve a new short story and poem from me each month. If get enough subscribers, I’ll expand this to include guest contributors.
I’ll be launching the newsletter in January of 2021. In the meantime, I want your input!
What do you think of this newsletter idea? Would you be interested in subscribing to the free or paid version? Would you like to see an emphasis on climate fiction, other types of climate creativity, creative climate solutions, or something else entirely?
If you’re interested in the newsletter, let me know what type of content you’d like to see there.
2020 is almost over, but here in the US, the pandemic’s just getting warmed up. Several vaccines are in the process of approval and early distribution, but it will take months to distribute them to enough people to make a major difference in the spread of COVID-19. In the meantime, the winter spike in confirmed cases, hospitalizations, and deaths continues. How we respond to the pandemic over the next few months will determine just how catastrophic a toll it takes on our communities and society.
