I was just informed that Barnes & Noble is placing an order for my book, Chicken in the Car and the Car Won’t Go: Nearly 200 Ways To Enjoy Chicagoland With Tweens and Teens and should have it on the shelves by the December holidays. This was one of my main goals for the book: to get it into a major bookseller’s stores.
So there you go. Though the order they are placing is not big enough to get copies into every store (Yet. Let’s stay positive, shall we?), you CAN go into your local B&N, no matter where it is, and special order a copy for yourself (or for others); it would arrive in about a week. I’m guessing that the B&N stores that will actively stock my book are those in the Chicago area, and I’m hoping for Milwaukee and Indianapolis: we’ll see.
If you’re local, you can also purchase the book at the Barbara’s Bookstore on the lower level of Macy’s (formerly Marshall Field’s) on State Street in Chicago, just a few floors beneath the stained glass ceiling I love so much:
You can also buy it from Anderson’s Bookshop in Naperville, a great little independent bookstore, and I’m steadily working on more. I’ll post updates as I have them. (Of course, it’s available on Amazon, too!)
Please consider my book during the upcoming holiday season (and share this info with friends!); it’s a great gift for locals AND those who are planning a trip to Chicago. Your support of me and the stores that are awesome enough to have jumped on board with me means so much!
This is so awesome!
