Where can I find a copy of your book? That is probably the sweetest question you can ask any author.
Over the last few weeks, more and more people have been asking me where can they buy Miserere.
As much as I love supporting bookstores, I've had to direct people to online resources. There is no bookstore in the county in which I live, the closest ones are in Greensboro, which is approximately twenty-four miles away. None of the Barnes and Nobles nor the Books-A-Million stores carry my novel in stock. The same is true of the independent bookstores in Durham, Chapel Hill, and Winston-Salem, three cities that are farther afield than Greensboro, but still reasonably close to my area.
So if you're looking for a copy of Miserere, here is where your instant gratification needs can be met. Just click on the link for the format of your choice.

This doesn't mean that I'm backing off my stance for support of local bookstores. I encourage everyone to use their local bookstore first. I have several reasons:
- local bookstores provide jobs and taxes
- they host events that enable authors to cultivate a deeper relationship with their readers
- they have knowledgeable staff who can help you find exactly what you're looking for
Those are just the first three that come to the top of my head. I'm sure if I thought about it a little more, I could come up with about twenty more reasons.
I can't describe what a warm and wonderful experience I've had at every local bookstore that I've had the opportunity to visit.
I can tell you about the cultural void that is left when you no longer have a local bookstore to enjoy.
So if you live near a bookstore, please, please support them.
However, if you want a copy of Miserere, to the best of my knowledge, you can only get it online.
If you see that rare creature Miserere in the wild, send me a photo and I'll post it on the blog.
