Do You Enjoy Writing About Books & Bookshops?

Once again it is time to see if any of you are interested in contributing a post to our site, or even better – become a regular contributor. The last time we put out a little feeler like this the result was very positive. We received a lot of very interesting articles. From a Dream of Opening a Bookstore to a fantastic trip to the Pulpwood Queen’s Girlfriend Weekend.

Of course not all the posts need be so detailed. We have had nice stories on Children’s Books, on participating in Antique Fairs and much much more. If you have anything at all you’d like to share, please don’t be shy. You never know where it might lead.

The site has been dormant for a while but we are now reviving it and hope to get it back to the 100 000 monthly readers we enjoyed a few years ago. I will be marketing the site vigorously and expect to quickly regain our old fans. Once your article and link(s) to your site are posted they remain within the site for the life of the blog.

We experimented with writing schedules for our contributors but this proved difficult to keep up. We are now going a bit more free-form and will post most good articles right away, as always on books/book collecting and selling books be it online or from an open shop. Please feel free to insert links back to your site within each post and if you can include a few images. We do enjoy offbeat & cultural stories as well.

So that’s it in a nutshell. If you like to write, we like to publish. If you need some publicity (or Google Juice), we can provide it. The only thing we ask is that the stories are original and meant solely for The Bookshop Blog and aren’t reproduced elsewhere.

  • My girlfriend, Laurelle Swan, will be opening a book store on May 1st. She/We have been lucky to have found an ABAA member and two former store owners to provide guidance. I’m sure Laurelle or I would like to contribute to the blog.
