It's a Double Post Friday here at INK ROCK! Don't miss the first: Last Day of Premiere Week for The Story Behind the Story!
Back in 2008, at the height of the economic crunch, and during one of the lowest points in recent years for the publishing business, I launched a Facebook Group called Buy a Book, Save the World! in order to prompt people to get out to a bookstore and buy a book.
Well, you all responded. The group grew to over three thousand strong and around that group, a small community developed where members discussed books, authors, and their favorite bookstores.
Facebook is now planning to archive that group (removing all our 3000+ members), so I've decided that now is the perfect time to reinvent the site and refocus on the author and the bookstore. Buy a Book, Save the World! will be relaunching in the coming months and hopefully become an atlas for author hotspots and unique bookstores that are worth a visit. I hope to see you there soon!
