Adaptability is a key element of battlefield leadership. Combat requires one to creatively and aggressively solve problems. As the enemy adapts to your plan you must remain flexible and identify emerging opportunities, adapting faster than your adversary. 2020 hit small businesses hard as COVID-19 impacted the nation. Foot traffic for independent bookstores went to zero as they were forced to shut down in response to the pandemic. This year they are on the rebound! To help these local independent bookstores recover from a tough year I recently conducted a campaign to drive traffic to these small businesses through a limited-edition bookplate. They sold out quickly and I want to thank you for taking the time to support the indies! To continue that support, a newly designed and signed limited-edition DEVIL’S HAND bookplate is coming in hot. This bookplate features a unique Kalashnikov featured in the novel. It will be available only through event booksellers who will ship directly to you. Scroll down to see a list of participating independent bookstores open to take your order for THE DEVIL’S HAND with a signed limited-edition Kalashnikov bookplate! They won’t last long so order today. And be sure to join me on the virtual book tour! Feel free to forward this page and spread the word. For more on the rifle used in THE DEVIL’S HAND and depicted on this bookplate, check out my recent blog article: JAMES REECE’S KALASHNIKOV IN THE DEVIL’S HAND. Thank you for your support of independent bookstores! Happy reading!
