Local-ish folks, Jason A. Adams and I will be out and about for the holidays! We’re launching The Occasional Bookstore right here in St. Paul, Virginia, based at the fascinating Mountain Heritage Museum and Gallery. We have several stories set in and around Appalachia, and we’ll have gift cards and ebook cards that make fantastic stocking stuffers along with signed print books.
More great local authors will be joining in, so check back for updates as we get more information. This is also a perfect time to support other local small businesses around St Paul!
The schedule for The Occasional Bookstore for the next few weeks is below. If these first few dates go well, we hope to make this available for readers and other local authors in the future. Pick up gifts for the readers in your life, visit the wonderful museum, and be sure to say howdy!
