Small Press Month

Did you know that March is Small Press month?

Now, I love my Barnes and Noble as much as the next book addict, but the big chain stores can sometimes run the little guys out of town. (Remember Fox Books putting the Shop Around the Corner out of business in "You've Got Mail?")

So maybe once a month - or more - you could frequent a little-guy store. I did my book signing below at such a place, BookWorks, in Staunton, VA. They're the only bookstore left in the city limits, and the big guy - Books a Million - is really their only competitor. So do the same, look around your neighborhood and find an independent bookstore.

You may also want to check out an independent or self-published author. Now where would you find one of those? ;)

  1. I honestly don't know where a small book store is near me. There's a Christian bookstore down the road, but I'm pretty sure it's part of a chain.

    The Tattered Cover might be local, but I know they have a few stores. sigh

    I do buy books at our library though.
