Buying My Books

If you have reached this page you are probably thinking about buying one of my books. Thank you!

The easiest way to buy them is probably through Amazon, and here is my author's page there. But maybe there's a better way.

I say that because, in my opinion, Amazon is trying to destroy independent bookstores and that is bad for writers, readers, and America.  (I'm not the only one who says so. Here's one example of many.)

If you want a paper copy of one of my books you can probably buy it at, or order it from, your local independent bookstore. If your locals have all been driven out of business,  one of the others on that list would be happy to mail you the book.  Or you can contact me directly to get an autographed copy.  If you bought a copy elsewhere I can  send you a personalized bookplate..

Want an ebook?  Do you know about Kobo?  They cooperate with the indie bookstores.  Go to your favorite indie's webpage and look for a link to Buy Ebooks. There you can set up a Kobo account and every time you purchase an ebook there a percentage of the price goes to that bookstore.  Cool, huh?

But maybe the book you want is not available via Kobo.  (My two novels are not.  I have no control of that.)  Which brings us back to Amazon.

If you want to buy something from Amazon I advise you not to do it directly.  Go to the webpage of your favorite nonprofit and see if they have a link to Amazon there.  If you click there the nonprofit gets a tiny sliver of the cost of whatever you buy.  And wouldn't you rather they have it?

Thanks for taking the time to read this.  And again, thanks for your interest in my work.  I'd love to hear from you.
