Online bookshop coming soon!

We are in the process of setting up an online bookshop (new books only for now) similar to what we had before. Please bear with us as this process may take a few weeks; the woman in charge of it for the company we’re dealing with is home sick (we hope you will keep her in your thoughts).

Watch this space for more information as it comes!

Gift certificates!

A client inquiry reminded me to make this post!

WE SELL GIFT CERTIFICATES IN ANY DENOMINATION.

I can take orders using credit/debit over the phone & mail you a gift certificate, even though I’m working from home. Call (US) 603-512-9251.

We have clients all over the world who order with us using gift certificates. They place the order for us to get books for them; we ship them “debiting” from the gift certificate each time.

Gift certificates can only be used for books already in the “brick store” (we will search for you!) or used books we can search for and order for you.

Please write to starcatbooks@starcatbooks.com to order gift certificates and books. We’ll arrange a purchase via phone.

Small Business Saturday 2019

Small Business Saturday 2019 is almost here: SATURDAY NOVEMBER 30!

We will be hosting author DEAN WHITLOCK, who will be reading from and talking about his brand-new book The Arrow Rune starting at 2pm.

Ed Lewis is sick of being dragged to Medieval Faires, sick of helping his uncle make bows, of minding the store, of translating his mute mother’s sign language as she reads runes for the faire-goers. Only one thing makes him come this time, a chance to impress a certain young woman by winning the archery tournament. Then he discovers an ancient, rune-marked arrowhead tucked in his bedroll. Embarrassed by losing the tournament, he buries himself in making an arrow for his find. What he creates is a gate-key to another world locked in battle between his mother’s people and a Briton war chief and druid witch. It’s the world where his father was lost, where mad harpers pluck illusions from their tunes, and Beowulf’s saga is fresh and real. Facing magic and war, Ed finds that skill, wit, friendship, and a healthy dose of fear will solve riddles that reveal the true nature of life and death.

~ ~ ~

ALL DAY we will be having a store-wide SALE:

~ 10% off all new books & items
~ 15% off all used books
~ specially discounted books & items for sale

Don’t forget to check out our ongoing “Green Dot Sale” for specially marked children’s books: $10 for 15 books, $5 for 7 books, or 75 cents each.
