Billy (Bubba) Crawford, co-owner of Bubba's Book Swap wants to work with local authors to increase visibility for their books and his shop. He has a display of local authors' books at the front of his store. In addition Billy has offered to talk about becoming a point of sale for local authors so their books may be ordered and shipped through his e-commerce account, minus a percentage for his expenses. Email Billy Crawford, or call and talk to him. Billy has been a great friend to regional writers.
