As an avid supporter of Woodstock, Georgia's well-known independent bookstore, FoxTale Book Shoppe, author Beth Hermes strongly encourages new writers to support their local bookstores and retailers. When FoxTale first opened its doors, the owners made a point to reach out to both local and nationally-known authors to start establishing relationships. They have always understood the value of local authors and the important role they play in the community, and have helped many authors on their path to becoming known on a large scale. FoxTale offers a variety of author events and writing workshops, some of which Hermes herself teaches. Her words of wisdom for other new and emerging authors? Support your local independent bookstores and they will support you in return.
