The owner Gee Gee Rosell greets you as you enter the store. She genuinely enjoys talking about books. (Thus, bookstore owner is the perfect career for her. I mention this because I'm sadly discovering that not all bookstore owners care too much about conversing with their customers or recommending books. A real shame.)
Despite being a relatively small shop, Gee Gee carries an extensive collection of children's books, notebooks, locally-made cards and all the newest titles in print.
She was also VERY excited when I told her that my novel THE HANDBOOK FOR LIGHTNING STRIKE SURVIVORS would be coming out April 13, 2010. She is ready to take your preorders. Oh, and her summer reading flyer includes a Corn Bread recipe. Does it get any better?! Books and cornbread!

There's no better excuse for a trip to the shore than, "Honey, we have to go to Hatteras this year because I need to buy Michele's novel from Buxton Village Books. It's a no brainer."
I'm sending Gee Gee my galley this week. I hope she likes it.
