Well, described, George. I hope “bricks and mortar” work for novelists especially, since non-agented authors can’t get into major bookstores. If Amazon makes a concerted effort to stock (and show) books that wouldn’t otherwise get street attention, that will be a big help (since most of us never make it to the tables in most bookstores because of publishers working special deals. In many respects, this is exciting. Thanks for this.

I did a poor imitation of Don Draper for 40 years before writing my first novel. I'm currently in the final stages of a children's book. Lucky me.
