Have You Heard About *Spooky Voice* The Supply Chain?, and Other Updates, Such as They Are

Hello hello! What's happening? Oh, you are asking *us* what's happening? Well... Lots of less than thrilling behind the scenes preparation, for one thing. Can you say Point of Sale System Change-Over? Woo! (We are actually very excited about this, but it's not, like, great for play-by-play updates. For example, just the other day we finally learned what "BISAC" stands for! It's "Book Industry Standards and Communications"! Aren't you riveted?) On the other hand, you know the saying "no news is good news"? Sometimes no news is...no news. When, say, as a complete hypothetical, you're dealing with a city bureaucracy...

Today, We Are Aware of Bisexuality

Today, We Are Aware of Bisexuality

Hey Book People, It has come to our attention, rather at the last minute, that today is Bisexual Awareness Day, which rebranded as Bisexual Visibility Day, which rebranded as Celebrate Bisexuality Day. We here at Meet Cute celebrate bisexuality every day (both professionally and, for some of us, personally, except on the days when Tinder really gets us down). BUT far be it from us to miss this opportunity to debut the running list we just happen to keep of Great Romance Novels ft. Bisexual Characters! Or, as we have called it on Bookshop.org and Libro.fm, The Bi(sexual)s Have It:...

We're Popping Up at Oktoberfest! Also, T-shirts!

Hello again! Lots going on behind the scenes here at Meet Cute HQ -- nothing we can share quite yet...EXCEPT: We are very excited to announce that we will have a booth at this year's Oktoberfest in La Mesa, just a few blocks away from our future brick and mortar. Oktoberfest has been a tradition in La Mesa since the 1970s -- there's beer, absolutely, and also food, games, and a crafts fair, so it's fun for the whole family. In its honor, we've created a list of beer-themed romances we're calling Love is Brewing. Shop now for timely Oktober...

Bookstore Tote Bags (and Hats!) are Live!

Bookstore Tote Bags (and Hats!) are Live!

Hello Meet Cuties! (We're workshopping that...how do you feel about it?) We've taught ourselves some Illustrator basics, designed some merch, diligently tested out samples, and now, without further ado, Meet Cute Bookshop tote bags and baseball caps (dad caps? have these been rebranded?) are now available! We're biased, obviously, but we think they're extremely chic and good quality. (We here at Meet Cute are particular about our tote bags -- we like them not too flimsy, not too sturdy, and with a bottom seam that allows things to sit flat -- and we are on board with these.) We hope...

Hello!

Welcome! We are very glad you're here! Meet Cute Romance Bookshop and Fizzery is still under construction (both figuratively, and, hopefully soon, literally), but we are getting started online selling books through Bookshop.org (find us here!). We'll also be sharing about the process of opening a brick and mortar store on our Instagram (@meetcutebookshop) and on our TikTok (@meetcutebookshop)...if we can figure out how to use TikTok. We are hoping to create both physical and virtual spaces for our community of romance readers, whether you're up for a deep dive into Romancelandia or you're wanting to dip a toe in....
