Through the Indiebound collective, booksellers from independent bookstores across the nation submit nominations for the books published each month that they’re most excited about.
As you might imagine, this is fabulous news. Independent bookstores remain the beating heart of the publishing industry. Their influence is of unparalleled importance when it comes to creating a buzz about new titles and handselling the right books to the right customers. Indie bookstores are owned and staffed by knowledgable, articulate, fantastically well-read people who are passionate about books. I can’t imagine a more gratifying nod of approval. I’m incredibly humbled and flattered.
So – thank you, thank you, indie bookstore people everywhere, for your amazing vote of confidence in A GOOD AMERICAN.
