Just a note to thank everyone around me who sends people my way. I can’t afford to advertise, so word of mouth it is.
Small businesses don’t survive so well anywhere these days – but everyone who drops in on a visit here, tells me it’s precisely because of the small businesses in Strathalbyn that they come.
And of course books are supposed to be “on the way out”. But books are always on the way out, or at least on the way somewhere (in people’s arms). And young writers everywhere are writing madly. And reading.
So, it’s worth staying on in a micro business that means no profit but endless joy. Not that hard to keep going!
And thank you to everyone who reads my stories. At first I was just writing them for myself – because I didn’t want to forget the people who came to the shop. But now, when there is something important to capture in writing, I am excited to tell everyone – look at this!!
Readers, and what they do – so astonishing to me. I am glad I am not alone.
