Author Sherman Alexie suggested that authors spend an hour volunteering in their local indie bookstore on Small Business Saturday. I thought it was a great idea. I’ll be at my official bookstore, and the one closest to me, Once Upon A Time Bookstore in Montrose, Calif. I’ll be walking around, wearing a hat (they asked me). I’ll talk to people about my favorite books, writing and publishing or maybe my favorite films (Catching Fire).
I’ll bring the new bookmarks that link to the iPad Air giveaway contest when you pre-order ENDERS, and also a few chapter samplers and teacher’s guides. There are wonderful authors before and after me, too. So I hope to see you there!
Oh, if you can’t be there, and want a book personalized to you or someone else for a gift, this is a good time for that. You can do that via their website.
