Buy Indie Day: Indies are ‘Gasoline on the Word-of-Mouth Fire’
“But any writer who has been out peddling his work knows–and I think this is especially true in the mystery/suspense community–there is no greater friend than a passionate indie bookseller who loves your novel. They are gasoline on the word-of-mouth fire, and like almost every small business right now, they are hurting. So I’m going to ask everyone who reads this blog, if you have the time, to go to your favorite indie bookstore on May 1 and make a purchase.”–Author Kevin Guilfoile on Buy Indie Day, an idea conceived by Joe Finder that has gained considerable momentum on Facebook and Twitter. The prime directive tomorrow is for people to buy one book (at least) at an independent bookstore near them and make a mass statement about the importance of indies.

I got the name Bella because my grandfather called me Suzabell. I use that as a username and my friends on the site started calling me Bella. Thus was born: Bella Foxx's Life, now known as "just a city girl" since I have made the big jump from the country and am now living in the City, UES.
I like to make jewelry (check out my blog "Bella is creative" started April 17, 2008) and write. I like to do cross stitch and knit. I sew, I don't really enjoy it, but I enjoy the clothes.
I like to read the Bible, books, magazines, online newspaper articles, blogs, jokes on candy wrappers, ads on the subway, billboards, backs of food boxes, lists of ingredients and recipes, cleaning directions, sayings on shirts. I post my reviews on "Just a girl, living, reading, watching, and writing", on Shelfari, Library Thing and Goodreads..
I am allergic to practically everything: grass, trees, weeds, animal dander, dust, mold, wheat, apples, nuts, fish and coconut. The fish and coconut are so serious I carry an Epi-pen and wear a Medic-Alert bracelet.
And last but not least. I love the Yankees.
