Indie Bound

On the top of the right side bar you will see a gadget for Indie book stores. If you want to support the Indie bookstores and love them as I do, just click on the link and it takes you to the page where you can find bookstores near you. If you want to find books by a particular author, maybe Maggie Bishop, type in her name and click search. A page comes up with all her books. If you type in the title of a book, click Search, the page comes up with the book pictured and from there you have many choices.
Want to find an Indie book store nearest you? Go to the Indie site and put in your zip code. You can buy online or visit the store. A map is shown with addresses of each Indie store.

These small businesses have a struggle keeping up with all the big chain stores out there today.
We have some terrific Indie books sellers in our area. Right here in Hayesville where I live, we have Phillips and Lloyd on the square in our charming little town. They have all kinds of gifts, crafts and the latest books. And they can order whatever you want and have it right away.
Near us in Murphy NC. Curiosity Shop Books is a big supporter of our writers and they have recently opened another store in Andrews, NC. City Lights books in Sylva, NC and Osondu books in Waynesville, NC are great places to visit, have a cup of coffee and browse the books shelves. I like the homey atmosphere and personal service I get in the little book stores. Books Unlimited is located in Franklin, NC and they carry books by many local authors.
Try our search for Indie book stores, books, and authors. Let me know how you like this service.

Glenda,

This is a great post. Thanks for the information about the Indie stories, you did a great job telling about our local bookstores, too.
Happy Spring! Happy Easter!
