Since getting back into the swing of things, I've become active (okay, fine, obsessed) with the Verla Kay message boards. I've even swapped a few critiques - a sort of "you show me yours..." kind of deal. One of these wonderful writers explored a Hawaiian theme in her book, which got me thinking about regional publishers. There are a ton of fabulous local publishers out there, and I've decided to hunt'em down. I'll post my results state by state, and I'll conclude with a links lists for larger areas like New England and the Southeast. It's just what us nerds do.
