Half Full Sex

If you’re attending Seattle’s Emerald City Comic Con this weekend, please consider dropping by Northwest Press’ booth #2210. Publisher Zan Christensen is selling quite a few Last Kiss fridge magnets (many, but not all with an LGBTQ theme) and a few Last Kiss tote bags.

NW Press publishes books primarily LGBTQ-themed or by members of the LGBTQ community. But there’s great stuff there no matter what your sexual orientation or status.
