The problem with Barnes & Noble, and Borders when it was open, was that their shelves were lined with books from the big traditional publishers. There simply wasn’t any bookshelf space to be found for the independently published.
We’re hoping to change that.
Together with my good friend Jim Christina, host of The Writer’s Block radio show in Los Angeles, we are looking to open an honest-to-god brick and mortar store in Simi Valley – in the northwestern portion of the vast Los Angeles area – which will house only independently produced books, music and other arts produced by artists across the country.
We also intend to open the place to area writers and other artists groups for signings, meetings, etc, and all with the idea of supporting independent artists.
But, to do this requires financing and here’s where you come in. If you would like to support such an endeavor we have set up a campaign on GoFundMe. Any and all donations to our cause will be greatly appreciated, not only by Jim and I, but by all of the small independent artists that you will be helping out.
