My book is called “The Little Bookstore of Big Stone Gap: a memoir of community, friendship, and the uncommon pleasure of a good book.” It’s available for pre-order on several bookseller sites, or you can message me at (which is also the bookshop email). When we stock it in the bookstore we’ll send you an e-mail when it comes out in October. Isn’t it ironic that, even if you want to, you can’t distribute a book in the States without using Amazon? {sigh} This photo of our shop manager, Val-kyttie, was taken by Elissa Powers, whose photography is found under “elp6n” on Facebook. (She’s kinda eccentric, is our Elissa.)


To pre-order my book, visit your local independent bookseller, who will probably already have an order history with St. Martin’s Press and will be glad to get The Little Bookstore of Big Stone Gap in for you. Or order online via Powell’s (an independent bookseller) IndieBound, Amazon or Barnes & Noble. (Or us!) Have fun, and thanks for being interested!

  1. Terrific post however , I was wondering if you could write a litte more on this subject? I’d be very thankful if you could elaborate a little bit further. Kudos!

  2. If you dont mind, exactly where do you host your webpage? I am hunting for a good quality web host and your web site appears to be quick and up most the time
