Important Notice

Payment Processing

We have switched all our payment processing to SquareUp.

If you sell books at events, the SquareUp system will allow you to take credit and debit card purchases for approximately the same fees as PayPal. It is recommended by many of the selling authors of the community.

Server Location

Our site has moved to a colocation in Markham and is now housed on a dedicated server. This means faster pages, more power, and less difficulties.
