Meet Ross Sutherland

Ever meet someone who makes you so angry but then says something and you feel your anger melt? Well, meet Ross Sutherland. 

"I don’t understand,” I said. “Did you know who I was?”

“Not at first,” he answered. “When I first approached you, I saw a woman in need. Then, when you introduced yourself, I knew. I make it a point to read the books of everyone who comes here.”

“You read my book?” I asked surprised.

“Cover to cover, Ms. Thompson,” he replied in a low seductive voice. “In two days, by the way. And I think you’re wrong. There’s plenty of material there for a second one. So why have you really stopped writing?” 

I didn’t know why, but I couldn’t help getting angry at him. First he lied to me, then he let me embarrass myself in front of his friends by telling them about the book, and then he waltzes in, takes my breath away and expects me to lay out my life story? Uh uh, nope, sorry buddy. You may look gorgeous – holy crap he was wearing a kilt – eyes up, Nikki, I thought, but you aren’t going to railroad me into telling you all about Daren

“I don’t have to tell you anything,” I said harshly.

“No, you’re right,” he answered throwing me off course. Then the man had the audacity to shrug and walk away. 

“Hey!” I yelled at him. He stopped and turned. “Why didn’t you tell me?”

“Because I was intrigued by you, Ms. Thompson,” Ross said. “And I wanted to give you a reason to be intrigued by me.”

Why Bookstores are Dying.....

You know, I did an experiment the other day. I decided to go to two large chain bookstores during the lunch hour rush. I walked in, hung out around the front of the store for a while, passed a few people and not once was I greeted or asked if I needed any help. Then I walked on and found a lot of books and movies (that I had seen at other stores) that were three times the price. After walking around some more, I looked everywhere for a "local author" or an "indie authors" section... There was none in either stores. After thirty minutes walking aimlessly around the stores, I was not greeted once, nor did I find any signs for "Indiana authors" or any marketing for any local authors. They are missing a huge market here. The "buy local" movement is in full force and only getting stronger. It pains me to say that if these chain bookstores don't start paying attention to the consumer and their wants and needs, then they're going to lose a huge market.
