I’ve blogged about Blue Heron books before. Shelley, the owner of Blue Heron, was kind enough to agree to host my book launch for Boarder Patrol. She went well beyond just hosting, though — Shelley helped guide me through the planning process and suggested Uxbridge-based businesses that might be interested in getting involved. She offered contacts and helped me promote the event, and even supplied coffee, tea and goodies for the launch.
She keeps my book in stock, and I know that she promotes it at local educational events when she has the chance and feels that it’s appropriate. As a writer, I couldn’t ask for more.
I love visiting Blue Heron as a customer, too. If they don’t have a book in stock, they’re always happy to order it in and call me when it arrives. I love their selection and the feel of the store, with its wooden floors and comfy chairs. It’s a place for book lovers, run by book lovers, and that shows. I could spend hours there. It’s worth the drive to Uxbridge.
In fact, it may be time for a road trip…
