Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Independent Booksellers Support Fledgling Authors (by Tess Callahan):


This is a fantastic informative post Tess. Thanks. To your list I'll add The Book House of Stuyvesant Plaza, in Albany, NY, where I lived for many years.

Mac's Backs in Cleveland Hts, OH.

Thank you, Tess. You're right; independent booksellers are unsung heroes and heroines. Here in (Ithaca, NY)we have the Bookery as well as a spectacular second-hand bookshop, Autumn Leaves. Autumn Leaves has changed owners, names, and locations more than once; I like the name Blue Fox better, but the inventory has never been larger than it is today.

The Second Story Bookstore ( in Laramie WY. Housed in what was historically a dance hall, a hotel, and a part-time bordello. And I'll second The Book House in Albany!

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
