The Lost King can now be found at the Estelle Stair Gallery on Austin Street in Rockport, Texas, thanks to Pat Chapman who organized this and to resident artist/gallery owner Lisa Baer Frederick. This is “wow” for me on two levels. One is practical: there really aren’t any independent bookstores in the area so we writers have to think outside the box (as in big box store) to get our books into retail outlets where readers can find them. Sure, The Lost King is available from amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com and a host of other online retailers. But some people including me just like shopping in a brick-and-mortar store.
The other “wow” is sentimental: I have loved that gallery since the first day that I stepped into it. And now I’m part of it! How awesome is that?
Check out the gallery not just to pick up a copy of my book and books by other local authors like Pat. There’s also the artwork by Lisa and other artists to enjoy, not to mention the gallery building itself. Recently restored, it’s a Texas Historic Landmark and dates back to the 1870’s.
As I said, “wow!”
