May Distro Update

Here are some things for this month: 

*This weekend we'll be tabling at Amazine Day, a small press and zine fair that we're also helping organize and leading workshops at. If you're in Portland, come by and say hi! 

*It's the third month of our Fan Club and it's going incredibly well. We're having fun with it. 

*Thanks to the advice of our dear pal Bob Schwenkler (and thanks to our fierce dedication to always being five years behind the times), we're now on Twitter

*Our buddies at the Olympia Timberland Library and the Pierce County Library just picked up a lot of MVPD titles, so all you South Sound library patrons should go check out your library shelves sometime soon. 

*And we're also working on updating our Links page, so please check out all our awesome friends.
