A New Book Site Hits the Web!

Helllloooo… and WELCOME!!! Thanks for stopping by.

If you are looking for a new type of site… dedicated to BOOKS, STORIES, AUTHORS and more BOOKS, then you are in the right place. Grab a cup of tea and make yourself at home. You are among friends here.

I have been in the ‘book biz’ for many, many years. Starting off working in a private book warehouse… into owning my own warehouses and bookstores (yes, plural)… and now plugging away at being an author. I have seen all sides of this business from publishing, to wholesale and retail. It kind of gives me a unique insight into the world of books.

This site has been a long time coming. It’s something I have always wanted to do… but never had the time for it. Then when I DID have the time, I was too drained to deal with it. Well… the stars have finally aligned and I am off and running!!! A dream come true!!!

My belief is EVERYONE needs to read!!! I don’t care if you read an ebook, paperback, only hardcovers, the sides of cereal boxes, or listen on your head sets… a good story is a good story, no matter what the format.

I also believe EVERYONE has a story. No skin off my nose if the story is published traditionally, self published, or written in the sand. Let me repeat… A good story is a good story, no matter what the format.

My goal is to expose you to some books, authors, stories, and book related items you might not hear about otherwise. I know of some self published authors who have written AWESOME stories, in addition to crafters who have made extremely clever gifts for bibliophiles. Don’t misunderstand… there are plenty of books and such through mainstream channels I will tell you about too. There are also some spectacular websites oozing with great book recommendations I will direct your attention to.

Hey… if a subject has anything at all to do with books and reading… and I find out about it… I’ll pass the information along to you via this site.

Now here’s the fun part!!! This site is a TEAM effort! I need you all to comment, ask questions, pass along information, interact with each other, and contribute to this community. Tell us about your favorite bookstore, what book gave you goosebumps, what books are on your night stand, what is your favorite tea blend… whatever you want!!! Submit your story to deb@uniqueandnovel.com for me to post.

Rome was not built in a day. Please be patient as changes are made to this site. It’s a living, breathing entity and as such will constantly be in flux. Visit often… and please SPEAK UP!!!
