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.
