Eat, Read and Buy Books at the Bookstop Cafe, Lincoln!

It's marvellous what you can find online! Through the RNA, I found a link to Nicky Wells' blog about the Bookstop Cafe in Lincoln. Here are Joff Gainey and Becky Lindley, the owners, at the Grand Opening.
They've had a fabulous idea to open a bookshop and a cafe with a difference: whilst you enjoy a cup of tea or coffee with a delicious piece of cake, you can sample the books from local and indie authors, and if you like one you can buy a copy to take home.
This is great for the shopper, or visitor to the historical city of Lincoln, to rest their feet and try out some new fiction, but it also gives a very important opportunity to those local and indie authors to make their books accessible to the reading public. It's a win:win situation!

If you'd like to visit the bookshop, you can find it at:
47b Steep Hill, Lincoln

If you want to find out more about placing your book in his exciting venue, you can tweet Joff at @BookStopCafe

Here's my book of summery short stories, Postcards and Suntan Cream, sitting proudly in the centre at the top. I hope you'll go in, treat yourself to a coffee, and read it!
If you have young adults in your family, they might enjoy Joff's own self-published fantasy novel, Sleeping on a Cloud, which you can see at the bottom right.
Happy reading!
