Thank you for supporting your local, independent bookstore!
We received a few questions about our newsletter last month, so I wanted to share our vision with our newsletters. We always appreciate feedback, so please let us know if you are enjoying the newsletters or if you see ways that we can improve the newletter such as changes in frequency, content, or design.
We send out no more than one newsletter a week, and usually only two newsletters a month. There are 2 types of newsletters that we send out. The first is always available on our website and it features events at Gathering Volumes such as Author Events, Book Clubs, and Special Events such as our Book, Tea, and Chocolate pairing last month and our Small Business Saturday features this month. The second features the Indies Next picks for the month. The Indies Next List is a collection of books selected by independent booksellers across the country. The list is comprised of books that are usually releasing that month that a book seller feels passionately about getting into the hands of readers. We feel that this list is a great chance to check out the next undiscovered gem that may become the next big thing. Denise was extremely excited because a book that she recommended to Indie Next, "Seven Days of Us," was chosen for the November list and newsletter! Indie Next also recently started releasing their Kids picks, which are announced quarterly, so some moths we also send out a third newsletter that features Children's book selections.
During the month of October you would have received 3 newsletters from us: the Indie Next picks for October, an October newsletter from us featuring our October events, and the Indie Next pick email featuring their Fourth Quarter Kids Indie Next picks. For November you should have received the Indies Next List newletter last week, and our November events email this week. We considered waiting another week for the November events email so that you weren't receiving the emails on back-to-back weeks, however we have a lot of great authors joining us this month and we wanted to make sure we were sharing them with you! We will also send out a special Holiday Newsletter in two weeks featuring some of the picks in our Holiday Catalog and our Holiday shopping specials.
Our goal is not to send unwanted newletters, our goal is to share with you great book selections that you may not hear about otherwise and to keep you informed of the wonderful authors that are here to share their stories with you. Please let us know if you are not finding value in our newletters or if you have suggestions on how we can improve our communications with you!
