The joy of small bookshops

A big thank you to the Print Point book shop in Rothesay on Bute for organising the signing event for Last Dance at the Rothesay Pavilion.
It was good to meet readers, some of whom knew more about the books than I did!
The Print Point is one of those small bookshops that provide a focal point for writers and readers in a town, always willing to help and give a personal service so often missing in larger establishments.
And it's much more than a book shop, with a huge range of goods and an excellent coffee 'shop' with very comfy sofas!
As many writers (and readers) will agree it's so important that these small bookshops continue to flourish in an increasingly difficult economic climate.

  1. I agree with you, Myra, on the importance of small bookshops in a community. I'm fortunate in having one locally too, but it's essential that readers and writers give them support. Best of luck with your latest Bute novel - I'm looking forward to reading it.

  2. The book signing looks great, Myra - look forward to Last Dance!
