Singulus Books – Quality fiction, one title at a time.

A stroke of good luck courtesy of the NYC permit dept: “no permit required if you sell newspapers, periodicals, BOOKS, pamphlets, or other written matter.”

In the fall, stepping things up, starting a mobile, pop-up bookstore in Manhattan.

Strategically placed in front of high-traffic locations like Barnes & Noble’s flagship store in Union Square…



or the legendary Strand Bookstore.



Singulus Books – Quality fiction, one title at a time.

Starting with mine, of course…

If this experiment goes well, other titles may follow, becoming a paid service offered to indie authors.

If you can’t get your book into mainstream bookstores, start your own…

  1. Nice one! Over here in the possibly soon to be Untied Kingdom a group called Wag Tongues from S.W.Scotland have been running pop-ups, and are bringing one to our book featival in Carlisle (England) in September. Good luck with yours! BHD

  2. What a great idea. It will be interesting to see how much flack is going to fly facing off with these big guns.
    And how the city will respond. That will be a story within the story.

    Good luck and Tubularsock will be interested on your updates.

  3. Love the idea, but don’t know how it will work in Hawaii where there is a lack of bookstores. Anyway, thanks for following me on If you’re interested in a site that deals only with my books you might take a look at – Thanks again and Aloha – pjs.

  4. Like many who commented, I wish you well and wonder how this will play out. Is there some regulation about blocking a sidewalk that will snag you? Maybe you’ll have to keep moving, like picketers do (?) Somehow I doubt the B&N staff will bring you a cup of coffee and a scone for your efforts. Take a copy of the regulation with you, I’d think, to show whichever cop gets sent to rouse you out and Good Luck.

  5. For the past year, I’ve been getting my feet wet in Photoshop and Illustrator. My goal is to be proficient enough to make my own designs for branding. I am getting better, but I’m still reliant on pre-made vectors, tutorials and somebody else’s images. I know I’m getting better because I caught myself the other day in the middle of a project saying, “if I can’t find it, I’ll make it.”

    Such attitudes should cross over to many things.
    Good luck in your endeavors, sir.
