I’m a fan of "Guest House," a novel by Barbara K. Richardson that — gasp — wasn’t published by a major New York imprint. [Read about it here. Buy it here.] I’m becoming an even bigger fan of Ms. Richardson, who has invented a new kind of book promotion — she’s taken to the road, reading at truck stops. Call me soft, but I look at this video and think: No way are books dead. Not with writers like this out there.
