We thought it was a good idea

The IPRC zine of the month club featured a Pine Island Press publication for September: I Thought It Was a Bad Idea I Just Wanted to Make Sure by Sarah LaPonte! Read more on the IPRC site. Sarah has recently moved to Pittsburgh, where she started her own imprint Half-Stop Press. We look forward to seeing her new creations.

I thought it was a bad idea, Sarah LaPonte
