In these turbulent times, it’s more important than ever that we support authors and independent bookstores and promote online buying alternatives to Amazon. Now there’s a great way to do it all at once. Bookshop.org, is a new a socially conscious way to buy books online. Most of the profits from book sales go to supporting local, independent bookstores. With over 400 stores benefiting from Bookshop, more than $68,000 has been raised for local bookstores. Authors can become affiliates and earn 10% of every purchase made from their Bookshop sales, while a matching 10% will go to independent bookstores. It’s a win-win! Becoming an affiliate is easy, and there are no set-up costs. You can sign up here. You can also download their author brochure here for more information and step-by-step instructions.
