Indies Or Wannabes?

indie bookstore“Indie,” by definition, means “independent.” If it’s “indie,” it’s not really looking to others to guide its conduct or operations, and it certainly isn’t bound to others in its decisionmaking or business operations. So why are indie bookstores trying to replicate the not-so-profitable models of the big box booksellers? And more importantly, why aren’t they leading the charge to support the unique (and often dazzling) work of indie authors? Why aren’t they, on the whole, leveraging the opportunities available to them in this age of self-publishing and staking a claim in the digital frontier?

Writing In A Dead World explores these excellent questions with thoughtful insight and a darn good business case. Check it out here: What’s Wrong with Indie Bookstores.
