Announcing our Independent Bookseller Appreciation Month Contest
It is Day Ten of National Independent Bookseller Month and we hope you have had a chance to make a beeline over to your favorite “indie”. We owe them a world of debt for their extraordinary work putting good books in the hands of young (and old) readers everywhere. We focus so much of our time and energy on our relationships with our agents, editors and publisher-- and it is important that we remember that our booksellers are an integral and essential part of that team!
As part of this month’s festivities, and our intention to get as many people everywhere into an independent this month, we are launching this month’s first contest. Robin and I are offering you a chance to win a $25.00 gift certificate to Booksense.com, a very cool place where you can shop on-line at hundreds and hundreds of independents across the nation. Booksense.com gift certificates make such great gifts for family and friends.
Some of you have posted about our celebration on your blogs and websites already—thanks! Or, you’ve forwarded our post about independents to other lists that you are on. If you’ll send us the URL of your blog, or the name of the list you’ve forwarded this info to, we’ll enter you in our contest. Or, when you go to an independent this month, send us the name of the store, the town/city it is in, and the name of the book you bought. All of you will be entered into our contest. We’ll be drawing at the end of the month. We want YOU to win!
Take your part in this Karmic Outreach, won’t you? We want our independent booksellers to be swamped with appreciative customers this month.
Much more to come this month. Please stay tuned!
