Tender Graces and BelleBooks is in the Asheville Citizen Times — a review of Tender Graces by Rob Neufeld, and as well a profile on BelleBooks publishers. *smiling*
And, to boot, Asheville is on CBS Sunday Morning – so Charles Osgood is talking up our Asheville area….he recorded at the Biltmore.
I’m happy that another indie bookstore has added Tender Graces to its shelves. Octavia Books in New Orleans now has Tender Graces. You see, an authors books do not necessarily end up automatically in bookstores – especially unknown authors as I am, and especially writers of "general" or "literary" or "women’s" or "southern" or "non-genre" fiction….we have to prove ourselves before bookstores will consider taking a chance on ordering our books. It is a business, after all. And with online booksales growing, Kindle (which TG is on Kindle -something I’ve never even personally seen!), and the economy, it’s a difficult time for booksellers, publishers, and thus authors! So, thank you Octavia Booksellers!
Well, whatever the case, this morning the TG review and image of the book is splashed across the newspaper in the arts and entertainment section and I am happy! *Big Smile*
(I do post pretty regularly on the Tender Graces blog – *smiling* but I so appreciate those of you who come by here and see me at my first blog home)
Thank you all for stopping by and I’ll see you soon – I’m working furiously on the second VK book.
