I'm taking a break from my read aloud of KEYS TO THE CITY to tell you about a new place to buy your books online. For a lot of people, Amazon has provided a much needed service to get books to people who don't have bookstores near by. But they hold so much power, and that's not a good thing.
So some good news! You can now shop at www.bookshop.org and support independent bookstores along with authors in the process!!
I've created pages for my books that are still in print. I'll be updating my web site in the next week with links as well. But for now, check out the pages below with links to buy all in one place.
Here's the page to shop for my YA novels.
And here's the page for novels for kids (generally 8-12).
In the coming weeks, I'll make other lists - like my favorite verse novels.
This is so cool and SO exciting. I know it's a hard time for a lot of people right now, but anything we can do to support bookstores and authors is appreciated by everyone who works in the publishing and bookstore business.
Stay well and happy reading!
