This past Saturday I volunteered at Malaprops, my local bookstore, as part of the Indies First campaign to promote books during Small Business Saturday. The brilliant author Sherman Alexie put out a call to authors to participate, and over 1000 authors answered that call. I'm happy to say Malaprops came in at #3 in the country for local author participation.
Remember that in support of Indies First, if you pre-order a copy of HER DARK CURIOSITY from any independent bookstore in the US you get a free gift: a custom tea sampler that captures the mood of each of the first two books. You can find out more and how to redeem your gift here.
