A Quick Plea For Poseur Ink

I received this message last night:

"Rachel Dukes from Poseur Ink here. I'm getting in touch with everyone who helped promote our books Side A and Side B to let them know that we've run into a family emergency and need to liquidate our stock of books in order to make room for a family member to move in with us. (And to pay off debts in case further emergencies arise.) If you wouldn't mind, we would be forever grateful if you could make a small blog post and let your readers know that the books are currently 50% off ($5 and $11, respectfully). There's still about 300 copies of each book left, so we have a ways to go; but we need to get these out of our apartment asap.

You can read more in our blog at:"

Please consider buying a volume. Here's my review of the Side B anthology.
