Shop Local!


Today is small business Saturday all over the U.S.  If you’re thinking about Christmas, contemplating Kwanza, stumped for those last nights of Hanukah, or just searching for a birthday, thank you or welcoming gift, go out in your neighborhood, look for inspiration and shop local.  Shopping local supports people who live and work in your community.  This is a good practice year ’round and world ’round.  So if you’re one of Chanel’s readers in the U.K., Canada, France, Germany, Russia, China, Australia, Japan, Brazil or anywhere you can participate as well!

If your local bookstore is Vroman’s in Pasadena, California, I’ll be volunteering there today from 3 to 5PM –recommending books.  Come on down!


Authors Work Indies!

Some of your favorite authors will be working at their local independent bookstores all over the country this Saturday, November 30th, to celebrate Small Business Saturday.

I’ll be working and recommending some of my favorite books at my local store Vroman’s in Pasadena along with other Los Angeles area authors including: Michelle Huneven, Quinn Cummings and Hector Tobar.  Come on out and get your holiday shopping done.  A complete list of authors at Vroman’s can be found by clicking on my Vroman’s link button in the sidebar.  Or…
