Bricks and Mortar

July 11th, 2011

Hey folks,

Just wanted to talk about bookstores, the real ones you can walk into and browse without a monitor or a mouse (we hope). I’ve loved going to my local bookstores since as long as I can remember. I like to walk through the aisles and see all the cover art, pick up the books and read the back cover. To me, that is book buying.

I understand we live in a new age where it’s easier to shop online, and I don’t begrudge anyone that convenience. But if you’re a reader–a true lover of books–you need to consider what life would be like if our physical bookstores closed down. Sure, you could still find the works of your favorite big-name authors online, but what about the new voices just emerging? Can you trust web browsers to pick out the next GRR Martin, Joe Abercrombie, or Stephen King?

And for authors, book stores represent a great way to connect with our readers. It’s a little difficult to do a book signing online.

Just something to think about the next time you’re looking for a book.

My new book, Shadow’s Lure, can be found at Barnes & Noble, Borders, Aaron’s Books (Lititz, PA), Between Books (Claymont, DE), and other fine bookstores.

Aaron’s Books

July 13th, 2010

This awesome indie bookstore hosted me for a book signing last Friday, which was also their Five-Year anniversary (they had cake!). It was a great experience. The store is situated on the main drag of Lititz, PA. A lot of people came through the store while I was there. We even sold enough copies to make Shadow’s Son their No. 1 bestseller last week — yes, I am a bestselling author somewhere.

The owners (Todd, Sam, and young Sir Aaron) and bookseller (a fellow Pennwriter!) Vicky Burkholder are about the nicest people you could ever hope to meet. If you live in Lititz, you probably already know that. If not, stop in and say hello. They have a great selection of new and used books, and a playroom in the back for the kids while you browse.

If you happen to pick up a copy of my book while you’re there, I wouldn’t mind.

I’d be glad for some company at any (or all) of them!
