Bookstores are not always the best place for self-published authors to display their books. Spine out, surrounded by other books, the purchase of even a few of books in a year’s time is unusual. The clerk in one little bookstore in a local tourist town could not even find my books. No sales at all is the norm.
But Lise at Mohawk Paperbacks in Springfield has been unbelievable. Each month for over seven years she has promoted my books and made sure her customers had a chance to see them. I’ve said “thank you” to her over and over again, but I thought it was time to share that thanks in a more public way.
