Now this is original thinking!
This article suggests that indie bookstores can change the game by becoming their own independent publishers, especially for local authors! This is actually quite brilliant and innovative, part of the new way of thinking in the Revolution!
A local shop for local people (also a fun reference to a British comedy show- extra points if you can tell which one!)
This is the kind of out-of-the-box idea that changes the game, and could make the bookstore a relevant, ass-kicking place to roar back into market-share. I would support a local place that did this, and sell them hundreds of books!
Any hurting retailer listening?
