Shop Indie book stores this Christmas

My readers know I always urge you to shop at your Independent Book stores.
To see the top selling books for 2011 at your Indie booksellers, visit this site:
http://www.authorsroundthesouth.com/bestsellers/7985-southern-indie-bestseller-list-11202011


The list includes hardback and paperback and children's books. Order one from a local bookstore. They need your support more than Amazon does.
City Lights Books in Sylva is a wonderful place to order books. http://www.nccitylightsbooks.com/

In Murphy, NC, Curiosity Books is another great place to shop. You can order online and if you live in the neighborhood, drop by and see the wide selection of books and gifts Linda has on hand.

In our town of Hayesville, NC stop by to see Elizabeth at Phillips and Lloyd. She will order your book for you and you will have it in no time. Phillips and Lloyd  has a great new website that makes ordering easy. Remember that books make wonderful gifts.

In Franklin, NC, you will find Books Unlimited,  60 E Main St, Franklin, NC 28734
828-369-7942
This store has served the literary needs of the area for years. They stock the books of most local area writers.
 
Blue Ridge Books in Waynesville is a fine store. I could spend the day there browsing and eating and drinking coffee.

All of these book stores carry Echoes Across the Blue Ridge. If you don't have a copy, look for it when you stop in to shop. One reviewer says she had never read an anthology where she liked every single poem and story in it. She found it difficult to single out certain ones to mention in her review.

Do you shop Indie book stores?

POWER UP YOUR PROSE

Mountain Writers in Waynesville, NC is a group including many Netwest members. JC Walkup, Netwest Rep for Haywood County, and others have put together what looks to be an exciting and enlightening workshop for Saturday, September 25. Visit their website to see who will be the presenters for the all day gathering of poets, fiction and non-fiction writers.

It seems to me they have something for everyone. And the price is exceptionally reasonable.

Having just come from Waynesville last week, I must say I could have spent the weekend there. The town is filled with the most interesting shops and restaurants. When you go, be sure to stop in at Blue Ridge Books on Main Street. They are better than a Barnes and Nobles.

You can find Echoes Across the Blue Ridge as well as Now Might As Well Be Then on the shelves. Take your laptop if you want to sit in a booth and write while enjoying one of the delicious baked goodies or smoothies offered at the food bar. Leave me a comment and let me know how you liked it.
