Pick Your Potions' founder Lindsay Merbaum specializes in custom and themed recipes, both alcoholic and non. Her elixirs have been published in Alcohol Professor, the LA Review of Books, Tor.com, All American Whiskey, and Electric Literature, where the column Booktails from the Potions Library published monthly over the course of a year. Lindsay's recipes were featured at the 2022 Grubstreet Muse and Marketplace Conference and she spoke about her booktails at AWP in 2023, appearing on a panel regarding small press promotion and community building. All over Michigan, libraries have commissioned custom booktails (non-alcoholic) as part of a hands-on event, where Lindsay instructs guests in Mixology 101.
