I "blogged" about insecurity the other day. Trapped in the dog days of a too smokey summer and a bit at loose ends, I was thinking my book selling had stalled and ideas were hard to come by. I was, to be honest, feeling pretty blah, when what to my "wondering (ears) should appear" but a call from Edmonton's Indie bookseller premiere that they had a cheque for me! And that they needed more books! So, thank you to Audrey's Books at 107 st and Jasper Avenue (with lots of parking right there!).
It was a good cheque too, the best so far and more money for the donations Gordon and I are giving to United for Literacy and Métis Education and betterment!
Audrey's has been wonderful to work with and they have a tremendous 'local' author section, a very extensive Edmonton, Alberta and Canadian history component and some very nice and knowledgeable people. Let us all do what we can to support local and Canadian retailers!
