Where do I buy your books, Kevin S. Giles Author?
The absolute most direct approach is from my online publisher, booklocker.com. You can search for my books by title, or by my name. I suggest this approach because it cuts out the “middle man” in the sale. However, all the major online book retailers, such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble, also list my books. They’re also for sale at some Montana bookstores, including the Montana Historical Society in Helena and in Deer Lodge at Browsing Bison Books and the Old Prison Museum gift store. Ingram, the national book distributor, lists my books.
