Indie booksellers design beautiful displays for books they believe in. They suggest books they love. They help build a sense of community. Every month, indie booksellers pick their favorite books and vote on them, creating the Indie Next list. (The Orchard was number two on their list last September.) I can't imagine a world without independent bookstores.
I came here planning to post information on an upcoming book event, but then my brain took off in the direction of indie love.
Indie booksellers have been a powerful force behind the success of The Orchard. I know of independent booksellers who've hand sold hundreds of copies. They've LOANED the book to customers who said it sounded boring. They've tied customers up and made them sit in chairs while reading the book to them. Wait. I think that last one was just a dream. But you know...
But anyway, back to my post.
I will be in Winona, Minnesota, September 25 to help celebrate the ten-year anniversary of The Book Shelf. They have a lovely dinner planned. Here is a bit from
The Book Shelf website:

Not sure how this will impact my event at the Jon Hassler Theater in Plainview, Minnesota, where I will be reading short stories, along with an excerpt or two from The Orchard.

On September 19 I'll be speaking at the Rural America Writers Center in Plainview, Minnesota. The main focus is writing, so I'll be able to talk about everything and anything. I plan to talk about my short stories, my thrillers, and my nonfiction.

I have such a hard time resisting the clearance section. This crazy clock... The bird chirps twelve times every hour. This does not bode well for one of us.
