Now That's What I Like To See

My agent sent me this photo of a bookstore shelf in the Atlanta airport.

Shelf space is at such a premium in airports, so it is great to see one of my books there. And Daughter of Ancients, which is one of my personal favorites of all my books, is often a forgotten child. Lots of people assume The Bridge of D'Arnath is a trilogy and never get to the fourth and final volume! Those who've read it can tell you that there is still much to be worked out in Avonar and in Gerick's life.

Please, please, if you don't see your favorite authors' books on a bookstore shelf, request them. Bookstores are looking for any reason to order fewer and fewer books in this tight economy. And if new readers can't browse and find them, they are much less likely to take a chance.

I usually look for your books in the airport bookstores but haven't seen them yet--so glad to hear you've made an inroad!

Sometimes my books show up in airports in the month they are released. But they're not necessarily ones that get restocked and restocked. If you see them, be sure and thank the retailer for me!!
