First Bookstore Dedicated to Self-Published Authors Opens in Florida
“Frustrated by a lack of opportunity to display and sell their work, self-published children’s author and illustrator Patti Brassard Jefferson and history author Timothy Jacobs decided to create a bookstore of their own, Gulf Coast Bookstore, and to only sell books by indie authors.”
A very different idea, almost like a farmer’s market where people rent space and set up their stuff. Will it work?
I have my doubts because I think it takes mainstream books that “everybody’s talking about” and/or that are on the bestseller lists to pull people into a store. But, it’s a worthy effort!
What do you think? Will people stop and shop?
