reblogI know it’s a bit cheeky but I’m re-blogging a short blog piece I wrote for a client today. Restricted to 200 words, I keep them simple but hopefully interesting enough to encourage conversation.

http://www.kelseyincorporated.com/lets-talk.html  – blog tab – Benefits of Buying Local

After submitting the post, I thought about how some local businesses help my publisher, Dream Write Publishing – http://www.dreamwritepublishing.ca/ – in promoting their local authors. Smaller book stores, a volunteer run cafe, an artisan market and a few other general stores assist in stocking the books for sale. The benefit in liaising with the store owners gives each party a deeper understanding of the narratives content as well as the opportunity to meet and greet the authors with signings and the added advantage of an expanded promotion of local events.

Do you have local stores stocking your books? 

What is your experience?

This graph for shop local is a great visual guide to how shopping local benefits the community in which we live.
