Your doorway to unlimited self expression

May 21, 2017

Host Gerald Everett Jones and his co-hosts Cheyenne Cockrell and Thomas Page discuss “The Return of the Independent Bookstore” with special guest Jack Leidner, past proprietor of Clemens & Company bookstore in Newman, Georgia. Are the indie bookstores, in fact, making a comeback? Jack responds to our questions, including:

  1. If I told you I planned to open a new indie bookstore, what advice would you give me?
  2. What types of books did your customers want?
  3. The Borders bookstore chain was built on a new approach to computerized inventory. Do you think that was a good idea?
  4. What about events? Poetry, book signings, concerts, even community events like clubs and grass-roots politics. Should a bookstore promote those?
  5. Should an author plan to do bookstore signings and readings? Are those relevant anymore?
  6. Do you have an opinion about Amazon’s plans to open retail bookstores that have automated cashier stations?
  7. What’s your next business venture?

And, as ever, there's lots of advice on how to get published, including the support resources at our website getpublishedradio.com.

This episode airs on Hella Radio, KNNN-FM 87.7 Redding, Calif.
