Indies Understand What 'Labor of Love' Means

Shelf Awareness

"The independent booksellers mean the most to me--their unadulterated love for the written word, their respect for writers. These are the people who truly understand what 'labor of love' means, and this book has been a 58-plus-year labor of love. I'm thrilled to see ALL of the independent bookstores and adamantly refuse to choose one or two or three or four above the others. I wish I could go to them all--to meet and thank the people who keep alive the sensory experience of the printed word. I am in their debt--as both a reader and a writer."

--Elizabeth J. Church, author of May's #1 Indie Next List Pick The Atomic Weight of Love, in a q&a with Bookselling This Week
