Advanced Orders for “Circle…Home”

Late last year, a friend pointed me to a grant from the Arts Council of Greater Lansing. At the time, I wasn’t looking for grants. It ended up that the prospect was a good match for the book I already planned to publish this year. Being awarded the grant has made possible a more public and professional production of this labor of love (read here a recent profile by a local magazine).

As part of my grant proposal, I set a goal of 25 advanced orders; at the moment, there are between 8 to 10 placed.  Advanced orders of “Circle…Home” are available through August 16 at a discount of $16, compared to the regular price of $20 plus tax.  Advanced orders save 25% while helping me reach this grant goal and bolstering the publication process!  Orders may be placed with Everybody Reads Bookstore, (517) 346-9900.  In the case connecting with ER is not possible, please contact me by email MelissaHasbrook[at]

“Circle…Home” also is the pilot publication of my new small press Femestiza. The press will be launched at the book’s release on September 10 at 1:00pm at Everybody Reads Bookstore. The sales from “Circle…Home” go toward building the Femestiza press, an endeavor in support of writers with projects of the heart.
