For book/ebook authors, publishers, & self-publishers
I managed to cross state lines and get another book into an indie bookstore! If you're in Mississippi go and check out Bay Books on Main street. The owner is very accomodating and she has two very cool cats that take up residence inside. Most importantly, you can get a copy of I Wandered from New Orleans right off the shelf! In real live bookstores in New Orleans, Mississippi and Atlanta! It's too bad that poetry is mostly disregarded by people as being too complicated and vague. I'm not Shakespeare, I write in a straightforward manner that basically tells a story. It's all true life experiences, I'm still amazed as I fill out forms and papers to have my book included in different sites on the internet that there is nowhere to select 'nonfiction poetry.' You are forced to select fiction, then add nonfiction as a second category, which would probably confuse most people. The latest was Barnes & Noble, which is more than a little crazy. Here is the list, again, including Bay Books of places to get the book from a bookshelf:
Bay Books - 131 Main Street, Bay St. Louis, MS 228-463-2688
Garden District Book Shop - 2727 Prytania Street, New Orleans
Librairie Bookshop - 823 Chartres Street, New Orleans
Beckham's Bookshop - 228 Decatur Street, New Orleans
Faubourg Marigny Art, Books, Music - 600 Frenchmen Street, New Orleans
Louisiana Music Factory - 210 Decatur Street, New Orleans
Charis Books and More - 1189 Euclid Avenue, NE Atlanta, aka Little Five Points
That's my list so far, next time I can get to New Orleans I hope to add a few more stores. In other news, in about 30 minutes I have been invited by my longtime Terror On Church Street friend, Greg Hall aka The Funky Werepig, to do a guest spot on his online radio show, it's amazing how something like that could make your palms sweat. In a Coyote Ugly kind of way, I always have that 7th grade fear of my recital of 'Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening.' The blackout reading, just like the time on stage when the band was playing and I forgot the lyrics. It's something about being watched. Call me crazy. Even if it's only listening. I shall persevere in the name of shameless self promotion.
So anyway. If you're local and out and about, you know where to find the book! If you're not local and you wish you were, you can always get a signed copy on my website at www.tracyconway.com. Also available in eBook format at Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble.com and Smashwords! Groove on!
