I read the article, then clicked on a link to one bookstore, whose owner was interviewed for the piece. I'm in the process of clicking more links, but thus far I've decided to give a big
Shout Out and Thank You to
who list my novels in their online bookstore!
Books and Books, which has independent stores in South Florida, Westhampton Beach and the Cayman Islands;
Red Fox Books in Glen Falls, N.Y.;
Hugo Bookstores, in Massachusetts;
R.J. Julia, in Madison, CT;
Watermark Books and Cafe, in Wichita, KS; and
Rainy Day Books, in Fairway, KS.
These indie bookstores are most likely plugged into the IndieBound network and get their feed of available books from them. However, the fact that these bookstores are reaching out and getting online, bodes well for their future stability as vendors of books.
I'm sorry about not using the ampersand in some of the bookstore titles, but the symbol persisted in showing up wrong, so I've used the word "and" in place of them.
