Blog -- Shelftalker

One thing a writer needs to be aware of is bookstores. We writers should support independent bookstores because they are special places run by people who love books.

And a blog that is written by a bookstore owner who talks about books, customers, and the publishing business is Shelftalker, written by the owner of the Flying Pig bookstore, Elizabeth Bluemle and her partner, Josie Leavitt.

Elizabeth Bluemle is a published author herself, as well as being the sponsor of the Flying Pig Humor Award at Vermont College of Fine Arts in Writing for Children and Young Adults.
Corrected -- the award is called, The Flying Pig Grade-A, Number-one Ham Humor Award.

You'll enjoy reading this bookstore view of the publishing business.
