40 years of books being an everyday part of life. Growing up in a bookstore with access to any book you could possibly want to read. I can only imagine what that would be like! My guest today runs the family bookstore that is an integral part of the local community and that regularly gets some of the top authors in the world today to come and speak and sign books and interact with their fans.
What makes them so successful when so many bookstores are closing? What have they learned about what makes a book successful? How do they work with new and emerging authors who don’t have major publishing deals yet have something to say in their books? How do you, as a potential author make sure you are doing the best things to get your books into a bookstore? What are they doing to celebrate 40 years of success?
And we answer the question everyone wants to know the answer to: Can you judge a book by its cover?
In this episode I ask questions of Chad Leonard, second generation bookstore owner of the Vero Beach Book Center and Cynthia Callander, Director of Publicity and Marketing. www.verobeachbookcenter.com Twitter @verobooks
