Tomorrow is small business Saturday

November 23, 2012

If you’re not familiar with it, Small Business Saturday is a marketing effort spearheaded by American Express to try to help small businesses on the same weekend they’d otherwise get buried by Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The goal is to get you to remember small businesses on the weekend when the big businesses make a killing.

In the writing community, it’s a good time to visit an independent bookstore instead of ordering from Amazon or Barnes & Noble. Maybe buy a gift card to an Indie for someone.

Or, given that most writers are also small businesses, maybe it’s time to just support a writer, perhaps someone you know. And let them know you did it.
