Kudos For the Great Program with the Borders Book Buyer
On Saturday, Oct 28 I attended a wonderful program sponsored by Chicago-North Romance Writers of America at the Oak Brook Library. The guest speaker was Susan Grimshaw, the romance buyer from Borders/Waldenbooks.
The program was a real eye-opener. I was amazed at how she bends over backwards to promote authors, even to the extent of helping them get better book covers. She was very enthusiastic and obviously enjoys her work. I had no idea how much goes on behind the scenes before a book is even published. It's wonderful to have someone at a chain store so willing to help authors.
