Shop Small. Big Benefits

The Saturday after Thanksgiving is Shop Small Day. It's a day to shop and spend your dollars locally at local businesses.

This time of year a lot of us, me included, go straight to Amazon or big box stores for gifts. It's only natural to want to save money and have the convenience. But our neighborhood stores and restaurants need our love and our bucks too. So support them this Saturday, and every day, as much as you can.

This Saturday is also Indies First Day, a day to celebrate independent bookstores.

On Saturday, November 26th, at noon, Mystery Ink Bookstore in Huntington Beach will be having a gathering of authors to celebrate Indies First. I understand Mystery Ink will also have THE GHOSTS OF MISTY HOLLOW, my latest Granny Apples novel, on hand. So come on down and say hello and get your signed copy.

And while we're on the subject of the new Granny Apples book, I'll also be attending the Mysterious Galaxy Bookstore's Holiday Party on December 10th. Again, a great store hosting a lot of authors on one day. THE GHOSTS OF MISTY HOLLOW and RHYTHM & CLUES will also be available there.
