Ways to Support Your Local Bookstores on Independent Bookstore Day!

Acts of Omission, Independent Bookstore Day, James S. Bostwick, Shop Local

To celebrate Independent Bookstore Day on Saturday, August 29, 2020, James Bostwick, author of Acts of Omission, is sharing 6 Ways To Support Your Local Bookstore.

Independent bookstores are not just stores, they are the anchor to a community where friends gather and out of towners come to visit. They spur ideas and creativity and range from quiet places where perusing is a day well spent to lively performance spaces.

While Covid-19 has made it difficult for many local bookstores to keep their doors open, there are still simple ways you can support them:

Find Your Local Bookstores: There are over 2,300 independent bookstores across the U.S. and your local bookstores need support! If you don’t know where your local bookstore is located or want to explore new ones, use this handy bookstore finder from

Shop by Phone or Online: Most bookstores are standing by their phones, email, and online ready to help you find a book and take your order! They will either ship the books to you or most offer curbside pick-up. Some even have their doors open depending on the location. You can also shop online at, an online bookstore that financially supports local, independent bookstores.

Enjoy Audiobooks through Audiobooks are all the rage right now. Listening to an audiobook helps time fly while road tripping, walking, jogging, biking, washing dishes, cleaning the house, or simply relaxing. One of the best ways to get audiobooks is through because each purchase directly supports an independent bookstore of your choice! And, of course, if you enjoy legal thrillers, mysteries, suspense, and courtroom drama, Acts of Omission is now available as an audiobook!

Pre-order, Pre-order, Pre-order: Pre-ordering a book helps bookstores know what you want to read so that they can order it, have it in stock, and in your hot hands as soon as it’s released. When you pre-order, it also lets publishers know that there is a demand for an author’s work –  a win, win all around!

Buy Gift Cards: You can’t go wrong buying a bookstore gift card for someone you care about! Call or go online and purchase gift cards from your local bookstore.

Follow on Social Media: Stay in the know, get updates on book releases, author talks, giveaways, and more. Most have Facebook and Instagram, so start following your favorite local bookstores today!

To honor Independent Bookstore Day, author James Bostwick will be purchasing gift cards to some of his favorite local San Francisco Bay Area independent bookstores, including Book Passage, City Lights, Green Apple Books, and Sausalito Books by the Bay.

As a voracious reader of legal fiction, James Bostwick decided it was time to write his own novel, one that realistically depicts the difficult choices, high risk, ethical dilemmas, anguish and euphoria of everyday life for civil trial lawyers. Bostwick believes there are a lot of works that reinforce “ambulance chasing” stereotypes and present skewed or false views of the selection and preparation of trials, so after years of pondering writing a novel, he finally wrote Acts of Omission to correct that deficiency. The novel is loosely based on a San Francisco case Bostwick tried in 1984 when he went up against one of the country’s most famous attorneys to seek justice for a devastatingly injured teenager.

Acts of Omission is based in San Francisco, a city Bostwick adores and has lived and worked in for over 40 years. He took great pride in designing a book cover for his new novel that captures the essence of San Francisco. The book cover represents the spectacular sunset views of the Golden Gate from Crissy Field Beach and on the back of the cover, the bustling city streets shine through.

At its heart, this legal thriller is a soul-searching exploration of the meaning of friendship, love, and loyalty set in the maelstrom of a stunning courtroom battle. Fast paced, with surprises at every turn, this is a compelling page-turner filled with duplicity, sacrifice, heartache, and bare-knuckle legal brinksmanship. It is a searing tale of a legal system gone awry, where greed and power fight an unending battle against a young lawyer’s willingness to risk everything in his quest for justice.

See for yourself why this novel has sold out multiple times, received rave reviews, and a nomination for the Harper Lee Prize for Legal Fiction. Buy your copy today!
