Buy Indie; Winter Rules The Road


Monday, April 27, 2009
 
A couple of quick notes on a cold April day (for Texas; it's 62 degrees). First up, don't forget that this Friday, May 1st, is International Buy Indie day. Be sure to head to the local independent bookstore. If you're in the mood, double-dip by picking up a small press book.

For some, that's easier said than done; there are very few independent booksellers in Dallas/Fort Worth. Some of these are independent in name only, such as the Half-Price Books chain (and they've taken plenty of my money already). So I'll be heading to Roanoke, Texas, to The Book Carriage. I hope to see y'all there!

(Buy Indie Day was suggested by novelist Joe Finder on Twitter - thanks, Joe!)

Road Rules. Jim Winter, author of the now-collectible Northcoast Shakedown (I have a copy - do you?) and numerous fine short stories, is serializing his novel Road Rules on the web. He's up to Chapter 3 so far, with a podcast version beginning on May 2nd. After reading a few entries, I have to say: Jim, thank God you took those web design classes.

(Seriously, it's free and worth your time. Check it out.)

Have a great week, and keep buying books!
