I had had these various personal experiences when I was an adolescent, and had never talked about them. And I started thinking, you know, maybe I could use some of this in a history of religion.

John Mutter at Shelf Awareness wrote a great article focusing on James Patterson’s efforts to promote indie bookstores. An excerpt from the article is below:
"Late last month, James Patterson made 55 bookstores very happy: the bestselling and prolific author sent checks of between $2,000 and $15,000 to 55 independent bookstores across the country, for a total of $267,000. This was the first round of a series of grants to bookstores that he announced last fall and that will total $1 million by the end of this year."
