Hearts Off the Shelf
Walking into a bookstore and seeing my coloring book Hearts featured in such a great spot is like going to Disneyland.
Location, location, location! That may be the secret to selling real estate, but every author knows that wonderful feeling when their book is displayed in those precious spots that show a book’s cover.
Thank you, Copperfield’s!
