RESOURCES FOR MEDIA

Dear Journalists, Editors, Bloggers ...

Show a little love for our wonderful, necessary independent bookstores. Write about it, interview authors, booksellers, and publishers. Visit a bookstore on April 29 and bring your TV crew with you! Yes, we're shameless when it comes to supporting our local bookstores but we're also a very small team of volunteers. So all of you journalists, editors, and bloggers -- open up your hearts and headlines and help us make Authors for Indies Day an even bigger success than last year. Check out the resources on this page and if you can't find what you need, contact Robin Rivers.
