As an indie crime writer, it is important that I build relationships with retailers, not just so that my works can be featured in brick-and-mortar establishments, but also for the sake of being good to the industry that taught me to love reading. There is nowhere so relaxing, so quaint, so convalescent, as a bookstore.
|Parnassus Books is an independent bookstore located in Nashville, Tennessee. Co-owned by bestselling author Ann Patchett and publishing veteran Karen Hayes, Parnassus stocks the best selections of literature, non-fiction, children’s, local interests, and the arts. The store also boasts an extensive local author section.|
|East Side Story is more than Nashville’s first, all-local bookstore. East Side Story is more than a platform for Nashville-area writers to tell their best story while igniting, teaching, and encouraging the spirit of reading and writing in others. East Side Story is an idea; a blank canvas for all local literary ideas to help make Music City more of a book town.|
|Off Campus Bookstore is a classic in The Classic City. Selling textbooks and UGA apparel to more than 30,000 students each year, it’s an optimal place to shop in Athens.|
|Begun in 1978 by the inimitable Anita Raskin who passed away in 2002, the expanded Book Lady Bookstore continues to offer a broad range of gently used, rare, out-of-print and also new books. Joni Saxon-Giusti, who worked at The Book Lady with Mrs. Raskin for many years, purchased and revamped the business in 2002 and has overseen the exponential growth and relocation of the shop.
