Exciting news! The Day I Died has been chosen for an IndieNext Pick for April! Along with some other amazing books!
I have already pre-ordered about… all of these books.
What does “IndieNext” mean? you may be wondering. “Indie” refers to the network of independent bookstores who belong to the American Booksellers Association. Booksellers at the bookstores nominate books they’re excited about; votes are tallied; list is made. The list shows up in material that goes out to all the members stores, which helps new-to-me readers find my book. If you wanted never to run out of interesting things to read, you could do worse than to watch for this list every month.
So thank you to the independent bookstores who nominated my book and, actually, even those who didn’t. Independent bookstores make the world go ’round. I’m excited to get out this spring and visit a bunch of stores I’ve never been to before! If you wanted to help me reward indie stores, pre-order The Day I Died from your local indie, or come see me when I’m visiting your local indie store (or library—there’s often a bookseller from the local indie selling at library events).
Here’s the schedule. If I’m not coming anywhere near you and you want a signed book, pre-order from any of the indie stores I’m visiting and for an extra couple of bucks, they will happily manage that signature for you when I’m there and ship it right to your door.
