Independent Book Stores the Best

Learn about animals in wild Africa

As an author and illustrator of children’s books, I find independent bookstores the best clients. They tend to be friendly and supportive. Recently I was up in the Bay Area of California where I visited a number of such bookstores. I have four books that have been published (all available on Ingram). I found these stores were enthusiastic about carrying them for sale. I have not had the same success with Barnes and Noble or other big stores, even in my local area. How strange! What has been your experience? Do you prefer to deal with independent stores or the big names?


About berylreichenberg

I am a storyteller. Writing and illustrating books for children, I have published over 35 titles. Three of my books, "Ants on a Log", "Camouflage", and "The Mysterious Case of the Missing Birthday Cake" have been published by a traditional publisher, Oak Tree Press. These are available from Oak Tree and Amazon as well as other outlets. The others are published by and can be seen on their website. Some of my stories are in prose and some in verse. All are designed for small children and young school children. My fiction stories are designed to delight these children and help them learn about themselves and the world around them. I also have a number of nonfiction books about animals, the natural world, and other cultures. I illustrate my stories with drawings and photographs. I hold a Master's Degree from UCLA and have taught school in California. I hope that young children and their adult companions will enjoy reading my books as much as I enjoy writing them.
