Alice Hoffman: Booksellers 'Made All the Difference'

"Independent booksellers have supported me from the beginning of my writing career, and the bookstores I've loved have changed my life, first as a reader, and then as a writer. I'm so grateful for that support. My early books were always supported by independent bookstores even when they weren't selling very many copies. Booksellers who hand-sold my novels made all the difference. Two of my favorite independent bookstores are visited by the characters in Faithful, but there are so many that have been my salvation. I can't imagine living in a town where there wasn't an independent bookstore."

--Alice Hoffman, whose latest novel Faithful is the #1 Indie Next List pick for November, in a q&a with Bookselling This Week
