With space on the library shelves scarce, the characters of your most beloved genres are banding together into gangs to secure their books' places - and their lives.
The little town of Stonewood sits in the forested hills of East Tennessee. Like most towns, it has a public library, and like in most libraries, a strange and entirely invisible war rages.
Gangs centered around major book genres battle one another for space on the shelves. The more books in their area, the better the chance of their own novel being read. Readership determines life or death, so it's every genre for itself.
But if survival alone wasn't enough, genre rivalries and biases leave some gangs not only fighting for shelf space but pushing their own agendas as well - even within their own groups.
Welcome to Shelf Space. Let the war resume.
of the month
Jan. 1 Welcome to 2018! This month's newsletter is short and sweet, but don't let that stop you from reading it.
No special event this month, so let's really use this time to further our gang sub-plots!

My move to Europe went smoothly. I spent a few days in Iceland first, then flew to Hungary. I'm still settling into my town and am getting used to the classes I'm teaching, but I'm able to get a few posts out now, finally. Hopefully things will pick back up soon. Thanks for your patience.
new members & guests!An early welcome to those who join in September. We look forward to seeing what characters and plots you bring! Among other things, be sure to read our FAQ pages and our New Member's Guide. You can PM me or leave a message in our "Ask a Reference Worker" forum.
We love seeing guests around here, though with timezone differences, I apologize in advance if I respond to your chat messages hours late. If you have questions, you're free to leave them in the cbox, but we also have our guest-friendly "Ask a Reference Worker" forum where you can post your questions and comments. I'll respond as quickly as I can. Please read our FAQ pages and our New Member's Guide as well, as many questions can be answered with those.
banner!New skin, new books.
I mentioned in the last newsletter than keeping up with daily quotes and prompts was getting difficult for me and that I might change the format a little bit. I decided that a weekly quote and prompt might be more manageable, so that's what we'll try and do from now on.
mini-event!No mini event this month. Things are still settling down for me after moving. But let's keep going on gang sub-plots.
seeking staff!I am still seeing an advertising moderator. You can find out more about that in the "Seeking Staff" post in this forum. Contact me if you're interested.
