I started this blog to have a Web page for the Trembling Leaves Twitter account. I’m always curious about Northern Nevadans who have their books published, publish their own books, or even publish the books of others. And like most avid readers, I love bookstores, both new and used. I’ve become addicted to buying used books and try to keep up with the best sales. Since I’m following all of this information anyway, I decided to start a Twitter account to share it.
The name comes from Walter Van Tilburg Clark’s novel The City of Trembling Leaves, which is set in Reno.
Who am I, and what do I have to do with books? My name is Laurel Busch, and I’m a copy editor with a B.A. in journalism. I’ve recently started working as an editor for Booktrope, but most of my experience has been in public relations, engineering and environmental report editing, and academic journal production.
I welcome your feedback, news, and additions to the blogrolls, either through the contact form on this site or on Twitter.
