Please take a look at http://www.authorsroundthesouth.org/ and you will be pleased at all this site has to offer. Her ladyship does a grand job of keeping abreast of southern authors and books on the shelves in Independant book stores. Your local bookstore is likely to be listed. See if your book is mentioned.
Read and let me know here, under comments, what you think.
Rob Neufields's interactive site set up with Citizen-Times newspaper is interesting to read. Hopefully, those of us down in the southernmost part of NC will be able to participate and show that WNC is not limited to the Asheville area. Tipper, of Blind Pig and the Acorn, is a member as is Kathryn Stripling Byer. Get on and voice you views.
