I received this note today from my local bookstore, Mysteries & More. In light of the massive changes to the book market in Nashville, I thought I'd share it with you. I've gotten multiple notes lately asking where my books can be purchased in Nashville. Sadly, I fear this problem is endemic to all authors these days.
Mysteries & More is one of the last bookstores in Davidson County that stocks new titles, and a really sweet shop to boot. So if you're in Nashville and want to hit a real store, check them out. Also, if you're west of town, be sure to stop by Reading Rock Books in Dickson - another excellent independent store. I'll be doing signings at both stores in late September for the release of WHERE ALL THE DEAD LIE, so stay tuned to the Tours link for more info.
Here's the note I got from Greg this morning:
Fellow Mystery Lovers,
So far, the month of April has been one of our slowest since we opened the store.
We realize that the recent bad weather has probably been a contributing factor for this.
However, we also feel that the press reporting of some current events may have created some confusion.
We are sending this short note to clarify any misunderstanding that may be out there.
Here are the real facts:
- Davis-Kidd bookstore is closed.
- Borders bookstore in Cool Springs is closed.
- Borders bookstore on West End will close the end of May.
- Sherlock’s bookstore in Lebanon is closed.
- MYSTERIES & MORE IS OPEN - AND WILL REMAIN OPEN!
If you haven’t visited us for a while, please stop by and check out our recent changes including our expanded Younger Reader’s section.
And don’t forget that we order and ship any book in print (not just mysteries) and always at a 20% discount.
Thank you for your continued support, we appreciate it.
Mary & Greg
Editor's Note - Both stores can get you any book, regardless of genre.... : )
