I am proud to announce that The Green Arcade in San Francisco is now on the long list of Bay Area bookstores that carry my paperbacks. Koham Press in Vallejo and Sundiata Bookstore in Oakland are two other recent additions. The entire list of Bay Area bookstores that carry my titles can be found here:
Brick and mortar bookstores are important to the reader, and local bookstores are important to neighborhoods. They enrich our culture. For many, there is nothing that can replace the experience of the physical book in hardcover or paperback, the discovery of new authors and titles in the aisles of well-lit, tidy spaces with their comforting aroma of wood, leather and paper as well as dimly-lit corners of undiscovered literature in crowded stacks smelling vaguely of mustiness and dusty respite.
They are more than just book repositories, they are also the primary venues at which authors interact on a personal level with our readers. Writers, whether internationally famous or local and unknown, tour bookstores the way musicians hit nightclubs and concert halls, and painters present their works in cafes and galleries. Book readings and signings occur within these hallowed halls, but over the past decade, bookstores are increasingly losing traction to electronic books.
