OFFICIAL RELEASE: The Stagger Sessions, a Crossword EP

I'm very happy to announce the release of The Stagger Sessionsa collection of twenty original themeless crosswords I wrote in the spring of 2017. All puzzles feature a staggered central stack, oriented either vertically or horizontally in each grid.

I'm conceptualizing this project as a "crossword EP," and thus the packaging of The Stagger Sessions is more reminiscent of an album of music than a standard crossword book. 

The Stagger Sessions will be available for purchase for $10 for the full EP, which includes the 30-page PDF including liner notes, the puzzles, and their solutions, as well as .puz versions of all the puzzles. In addition, individual puzzles will be available for just $1 per puzzle.

All month during June, 50% of all proceeds - subscriptions, archive purchases, and tip jar donations - will be donated to Anna Marie's Alliance, a non-profit women's and children's shelter for victims of domestic abuse that serves my community of Saint Cloud, Minnesota.

I've had the pleasure of working with Anna Marie's in the past, and they are a wonderful organization that is very much deserving of all support.

While this promotion runs through the end of June, Anna Marie's always takes donations of any amount all year long. For more info about Anna Marie's and to donate directly, visit their website here.

Thanks for your continued support!
