As part of the fallout from Borders' recent bankruptcy announcement, 200 stores are scheduled to close. Unhappily, my favorite Borders bookstore is one of them.
I happened to be in this Utica, Michigan store when my agent called to tell me we had an offer from Berkley to publish my first novel. Since that day, I've always dreamed of having a signing in this same Borders bookstore.
Last month, I did. It saddens me greatly to think that it was just in time.
