There has been much written lately about the decline and fall of local bookstores (as they battle Amazon and Wal-Mart...and, of course, ebooks). There was an article posted online today from our local Business Journal about 5 stores that closed up in the NW region this year.
However, the GOOD NEWS in the article was about those stores that continue to thrive, including Seaside's own Beach Books. Not only are they expanding their store to new, larger digs, they are also stocking ebooks through Kobo. And, as luck would have it, all three of my tomes are available via Kobo. Therefore, to shop local, go here: http://www.beachbooks.indiebound.com/. You can do a search on my name (EXINGER) and buy like crazy. I get less this way, but...we do keep some $$$ locally, and that's ALWAYS a good thing.
