Just When I Thought All Was Lost ...

With the rash of book store closings this past six months, I had begun to think all of my favorite locations would soon be gone. Fortunately, I was able to set several signings today with stores that are most definitely still in place! Plus I was informed of some changes within one chain that will stop the onslaught of closings. That is certainly good news for all of the wonderful people working those stores!

I am also thinking outside the box and have a list of other potential locations, such as coffee shops and doing more book club and writing club appearances, something I have not done enough of in the past.

Things change - must keep up with those changes!

That certainly is good news for the people who work in those stores, not to mention the loyal customers. Well, it sounds like you're adapting to the times, as I had no doubt you would. You don't seem like the type to just sit back and let things happen. Coffee shops, eh? That sounds promising to me, I like the sound of it... those coffee shop/bookstore combos are pretty cool. Book clubs and writing clubs sound right up your alley.

I'm not the type to sit!
Independent coffee shops have oodles of personality and devoted patrons - I am looking forward to doing more!
