Episode Twenty-Three: Meet the Bookseller: Little Professor’s Sara Glassman Chats about Nanowrimo, Moving a Bookstore, and Self-Publishing Mistakes


Here’s my blog on 2017 Nanowrimo tips. To sign up for National Novel Writing Month or find a write-in near you, check out the official Nanowrimo website.

Find Sara Glassman on social media on Facebook, Twitter (as @medusasmirror) and Instagram (as @medusasjewelry). Find her book and fantasy-inspired jewelry in her Etsy shop, Medusa’s Mirror.

Visit Little Professor in Birmingham in downtown Homewood across from O’Henry’s and The Trak Shak; find them online at their website and on their Twitter account (@little_prof) and Facebook.

In this episode, we mention the Penguin Threads books. You can check them out online, but they’re really better in person, so head to Little Professor or your favorite independent bookstore to see them in real life! We also mention a book about the making of A Christmas Carol that I bought from Little Professor; it’s called The Man Who Invented Christmas, and it’s about Dickens’ writing of that holiday classic. I’ve just started it, and I’m loving it so far.

We talk for a few minutes about Charm, a fantastic jewelry store in downtown Birmingham.
