blog-post that I stumbled across thanks to someone's twitter feed. The post is well worth a read. It draws a parallel between the upsurge in vinyl sales and those of "real" books. It's aimed at indie authors. I'm not sure that I fall into that category. Is Unbound an independent publisher or not? It has a distribution deal with PRH, but they have no curatorial/editorial input into what Unbound publish, I believe.
Anyhow, if you look at the lollipop-cum-bookmark in the photo, I'd really like the Pipe and Thimble Bookstore to stock my book, even if SOCAL isn't a likely source of hundreds - or even dozens - of buyers for Gibbous House.
I haven't read IVSage (the blog-post's author)'s, book, but I'll be looking it up on Amazon and, if I like what I see, I'll be buying a copy.
Only thing is, I'll be missing out on a lollipop. If you're ever out SOCAL way, buy a book in the Pipe and Thimble and tell them you want two lollipops, yours and mine.
