On hiatus

Due to circumstances beyond our control, Stone Gathering is taking a break until Spring 2023. We will not take new subscriptions until March 2023. We thank existing subscribers, vendors, and readers for their patience and strong support and we look forward to filling your mailbox with goodness again at that time. Please watch this space for occasional sales of complete sets, seasonal bundles, and back issues. Stay safe and strong and well. We’ll do the same. Kindest everything, Deborah.

Fall 2021!

At last! The Fall 2021 Stone Gathering is off the press, arrived safely, and will wend her way to subscribers and sellers next week. It’s a special one, for sure! Filled with compelling short pieces to ponder, treasure, share, or keep in your pocket. You won’t want to miss it!

We are, however, still having some technical difficulties over at the online store, where some or all items are showing up as “not available” for many customers, depending on the device they use. So, here are some quick “buy” links to our most popular items: subscriptions, gift subscriptions, and the current issue (Fall 2021). I hope these links serve you well until we get things fixed. Should you wish to purchase multiple items with combined shipping, or if there’s anything you need from the store that is not listed below, please give us a holler through the “Contact” bar above. We’ll make it work.

Please Note: The prices below apply to items shipped within the continental United States only. For shipping costs to Alaska, Hawaii, and for international shipping costs, kindly order via the email address in the contact bar above. Thank you.

As always, I am grateful for your patience and your strong support. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. More soon, Deborah

Holiday Sale!

And what a Sale! Take 30% off everything Stone Gathering for 30 days. Sale includes New Subscriptions, Extended Subscriptions, Gift Subscriptions, Complete Sets, and Single Issues. Think about who might benefit from these pocket-sized treasure chests filled with beautifully wrought, powerful, inspiring short literature. What a boon and a blessing in these pandemic times! Stone  Gathering makes a perfect gift, add-on gift, or stocking stuffer.

Like so many book-oriented small businesses, Stone Gathering needs a big boost to close out 2020, which has been disastrous in way too many ways. (We will persevere—no worries; but, oof, what a year!) And it’s never been more important to shop small. So, for 30 days, get 30% off!** Just look at these prices!

  • Subscriptions and Gift Subscriptions: 1 year—$29.40; 2 years–$56.00
  • Complete Sets (Volume I, Issues 1-5) –$35.00*
  • Single issues (current and back) — $7.70* | ***

Yes, every single Stone Gathering thing is 30% off for 30 days. But this sale is not available in the online store. Please order by email (in the contact bar above). You will receive an invoice by return email, which can then be paid online or by putting a check in the mail.

  • *Sales tax and shipping costs apply to sets and single issues.
  • **Sale prices are good through 12/15/2020
  • ***We do not typically sell single issues; we try to rely on independent booksellers and other book-friendly sellers for those retail sales. Due to pandemic conditions, however, bookseller and other vendor orders have been excruciatingly thin. So, we are making this temporary exception. We have made all current and back single issues available for sale through 12/15/20.

A big thank you to Molly Beth Griffin who provided the cover photo for the upcoming Winter 2020/21 issue. It’s absolutely gorgeous!
