These last couple of days we have been working hard on our inventory lists, seeing locations for comparisons of rents and square footage, and emailing independent romance writers so we can carry them too! And I am not going to lie, I had a mini freak out yesterday, and a pit in my stomach thinking about making this all work. Fortunately I have the best partner in Marissa, she talked me through it:). So now Loves Sweet Arrow has a bank account, and we are one step closer to our brick and mortar store! Woohoo
Happy New Year everyone! I’m not much of a writer, but here goes!
I’m not one for New Year’s parties or resolutions. Right now I am curled up on my couch right by one of my two sleeping dogs and we are ‘partying hard’ with some Netflix. It definitely beats the year I was invited to a get together and almost ditched downtown in an area I was unfamiliar in with no way to get home. And I am way warmer under a blanket crocheting another blanket.
I feel like the best way to describe my passion for books and reading is to inform you that I was punished at least once in grade school with a time out in my bedroom with strict instructions not to read. I got caught a half hour later reading a magazine and insisting that it wasn’t a book and they had said no reading books! Also, I currently have four bookcases in my condo and I have plans to pick up another one. My dining room is actually converted into a library. It makes sense that I would want to open a bookstore! And romances have been my passion for years. I had all of the Avon Teen Romances when I was in high school, all 12 of them. Of course, that doesn’t include all of my mom’s romances I would also sneak read!
And the puppy (she’s 2, but is still firmly a puppy) is now stretching like she wants to get pet, so I had better finish this and go obey the queen!
Til next time!
And welcome to our blog! A little background, I am Roseann and my Daughter Marissa is with me on a new venture. We are romance book lovers, we borrow and trade books regularly. Around six months ago we both had the same great idea, “Open our own Romance only book store.” And as the saying goes, the rest is history! LOL
So this blog is all about our steps on the way.
First the name, for about a month we both wrote down names that came to us. We wrote them out on a dry erase board, and walked past them regularly. Finally after a month of playing with names we decided on Love’s Sweet Arrow! It was unanimous.
Since then, we have been doing research, research, and more research! Have you ever looked up an author you love? Let me tell you, its fun to learn more about them. And there info can lead to five more authors and so on… And the Only problem with that is now I have even more books to add to my read list!
