Up until recently my books have been at several bookstores in the local area.
- The Boulder Bookstore,
- The Book Nook (Louisville) &
- The Book Cellar (Louisville)
Last summer I added (through much pushing from friends) to go into the local store where I was vacationing (in Frankfort Michigan). They sold more books there in a week (the last week I was in town and I was there for 3 solid weeks, ah if I'd only listened sooner) than the other bookstores sold combined. I think it has to do with them being a beach community. They close for the winter months, so things should be rolling again by next summer.
While helping a friend move with his yard sale, met a woman that works at Local Editions in Longmont. A bookstore for only local (to Colorado) authors. Yay, 5 stores.
Then "The Book Nook" closed their doors to business. No notice, and they've not replied to the email I sent. I guess the books are out there in the wild. I hope someone gets a chance to read them.
And today I received an email from "The Boulder Bookstore." They want to send back my unsold copies.
So the books are still in 3 out of 5 bookstores. When I started to write this email, I'd thought it would be more depressing than this. Actually it still looks good. Besides I'm not writing to please bookstores. I enjoy writing the stories and sharing them with whoever else likes cute, fun adventures that are sometimes silly and other times serious.
The Book Cellar on their main street in Louisville has my books, as well as the Longmont Local Editions. As well as the Frankfort store having the first book. If you're local, pick up a copy there. It helps to impress them that the book is great.
Update, Longmont Local Editions has closed as well.
