Indies Represent!

I was sadly not one of the lucky hordes who attended the Winter Institute conference this year (WI4, as it is known), yet nonetheless, I have firmly jumped on several bandwagons colleagues have brought back with them from that laudable event. Here is the latest:

Become an IndieBound Affiliate

What does this mean, exactly? Well, almost every time someone mentions a book, it is linked to be purchased from…where? Did you guess Amazon? You’d be right! That’s a whole heckuva lotta sales that the independent bookselling world is missing out on.

A lot of people may not know that there are independent sites, similar to Amazon.com, that help you purchase books online. I’d like to personally encourage each and every one of you to link to IndieBound (I’d prefer “instead of Amazon”, but I’ll settle for “alongside Amazon”) whenever you link a book to an online distributor.

Please check out this site to find out how you, too, can become a friend of the independents and help to save us. Clap if you believe in faeries. Clap if you want to save us. Link if you want to save us. Do you believe? Do you?

(BTW, if you’re looking for someone to explain this a little more thoroughly, Bookavore has a great post on this; she was actually at WI4, and is much more eloquent.)

I've partnered with @readwithme_raleigh to teach a #writingworkshop for children & teens (age 9+) for 6 weeks this fall. Participants get a bound book of their story at the end of the workshop, and we have an author event just for them! If you're in the Raleigh, NC area and want more information or to register your child, email christine@readwithme.us
