I have been getting a lot of messages lately inquiring about where to purchase Tales From the Dry Side: The Personal Stories Behind the Autoimmune Illness Sjögren's Syndrome. Not everyone likes to shop online or has an Amazon account and I figure this is a good opportunity to be passionate about the retail places that have been so supportive in carrying the book.
1. The Sjögren's Syndrome Foundation: I mention the Foundation first for a reason. They make a profit on every book sold through their bookstore or at their conferences, whether you are a member or not. However if you are a member, you can purchase the book for an unbelievably reasonable price of just $10. And because I have Sjögren's, monies made by them to go towards research, etc. is very important to me.
2. Broadside Bookshop: This great independent bookstore is in Northampton, Massachusetts. I have a passion for local bookstores and this one in particular is a favorite of mine. Even if you don't live in the Northampton area, it is worth the drive. Well, within reason that is! They have a wonderful selection and their location in downtown makes for a great afternoon.
3. Booklink Booksellers: Another great independent bookstore also located in downtown Northampton where you can find Tales From the Dry Side featured in the local authors section at the front of the store.
4. Barnes and Noble: You can find Tales From the Dry Side in their online store, but I recently found out that the stores are going to carry it at well. This is dependent on if the buyer for your particular store has purchased it for the shelves so if you do not see it, ask for it. You can also download it for your Nook via their website.
5. Amazon: What I like about Amazon is that they offer a Kindle version of the book and that may be more feasible for people who have economic hardship. I have been quite surprised by the Kindle sales.
6. Outskirts Press: Outskirts Press is my publisher. They offer a great deal. if for some reason, you want to order 10 or more copies of the book, you are discounted 50% on each book. That's a whole lot of savings!
