Say hello to the Wee Little Stitches Etsy shop, where all your geek sewing & cross stitch dreams can come true. The shop was born out of love for needle and thread and the desire to stitch things which are not only simple and quick, but which reflect geek pop culture tastes.

Gabbing Geek’s first podcast of 2015 is now live and we FINALLY get to talk about Golden Son, the second book in the Red Rising trilogy.  If you’ve read the first book, Red Rising, or don’t care about spoilers for the first book, then you’ll absolutely want to listen to this episode–we don’t spoil anything for book 2.  But if you want to participate in our Gabbing Geek Book Club in 4 weeks, be sure to read both Red Rising and Golden Son (they’re page turners, you won’t have any problems, Jenny guarantees it!).
