This weekend was Small Business Saturday – just in time for Christmas shopping. Buying local from small businesses helps the consumer find quality goods and services and provides a living for the small business entities.
Authors are small business entities. We sell our goods to the public after our blood, sweat, and tears go into a story. Oklahoma is full of local authors, I know because I’ve been involved in the Enid Public Library’s Author Fest and the OWFI conference in Oklahoma City for years and I am amazed at the amount of talent this state produces.
My books sit proudly displayed on the shelves in the local author area of A New Chapter Bookstore and Café in downtown Enid. Go by and see them and check out all the local authors on their shelves while you try their coffee.
My Sandhill Island books, published by The Wild Rose Press, were recently placed on Walmart’s internet shopping at https://www.walmart.com/search/?query=Secrets%20of%20Sandhill%20Island. They are also listed on LSI Ingram making them available to all bookstores and libraries. The Wild Rose Press website https://catalog.thewildrosepress.com/search?controller=search&orderby=position&orderway=desc&search_query=Peggy+Chambers&submit_search= can also make shopping easier with the click of a button.
Amazon holds all my books and they are listed on this page to the right. You can click on the picture and it will take you to the amazon page that sells them.
If you’re in Enid, I always have copies at the house and would be happy to sign one to you as a Christmas gift to yourself or an avid reader.
Books make great Christmas gifts. Buy local and make your Christmas giving special. Stuff a stocking, buy a book!
