Sad news to share, Steve Walsh dies
We are so upset to have to share the sad news that Steve Walsh has died.
Steve was so supportive of Bog Eyed Books, acting as our sales rep. He was so generous with his time and energy, not only helping us but many other small publishers.

We love you and miss you Steve. RIP.
