An Indie Author's Shot-out to Indie Bookstores

Making money on self-publishing your own work can is probably just as difficult as making money as an independent bookseller. Because of this, many of these authors find it difficult to offer independent booksellers the same type of discount provided by larger distribution firms. One author, however, has decided to offer a 30% discount to all independent bookstores. The book which is due out in May is "a story of family, faith and conflicting desires, set in both Center City Philadelphia and Amish Country." Her awareness of the independent bookseller, despite the constraints built into her own method for success, is laudable.
