Supporting Indie Bookstores
As members of an independent publisher’s community, RHP’s Bookbound series seeks to connect authors with their local booksellers, in celebration of the vibrant indie bookstore scene. Our authors visit the bookstores, talk with the people who own, run, and staff them, and celebrate these stores and staff in a continuing series on the Regal House blog – a reach that encompasses over 100,000 followers on social media and newsletter subscribers. We want to give store owners a chance to tell their stories and to inspire other bibliophiles locally, nationally, and across the globe to appreciate the essential role independent bookstores play in the author-publisher-reader symbiosis.
Our authors write up the tales of their forays into the worlds of our bookselling counterparts to inform our readers about these bastions of literacy, to entertain our readers with their escapades, and to express our support and encouragement for the individuals and institutions that keep the indie scene vital and vibrant.
Our authors reside in states all across the U.S. as well as in Australia, France, Israel, the UK, Kenya, and Canada, and, if you are an indie bookseller, we would love to feature your bookstore in our celebratory series! If this is of interest to you, please reach out to us.
