** KEYBOOKS BOOKSTORE
The bookstore has been restocked with items of interest to writers and readers and some hints about why they're interesting.

And while you're there, take a look at our NEW look!

Keybooks is looking for a store manager and/or several department managers. Email simegen@simegen.com if you're interested.

If you have a yen to go shopping, (CURRENTLY FREE SHIPPING ON ORDERS OVER $25!!!) remember that if you click through to amazon, Target, Office Depot, KidsRUs, etc using the links, banners or search-boxes on any of our pages, we get a percentage of your purchase price and it doesn't cost you anything.

We use the money to pay our server charges and keep this domain on the air and growing.

If you've found anything here from fan fiction to news announcements - from clues about how to write the novel you're working on to discovering a new author you really love -- please support our efforts by making one of our pages your starting point when shopping. There are no paid employees here - it's all volunteer labor including Jean Lorrah and Jacqueline Lichtenberg. But we do have bills to pay!

Remember, anything you buy via amazon or its subsidiaries (even now the used books!) within 3 (only 3) clicks of going onto amazon from one of our pages gives us a little percentage to keep going.

If you really want to work at it -- you can either go back to one of our pages and pick up the code again -- or you can add our code to the URL where you're about to buy an item and make sure we get paid.

BEFORE you hit "one-click" go to the URL slot on your browser, go to the end of the URL and backspace until you get to the slash (/) at the end of the ASIN number --- it looks like this.

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00005OBVT/ref=3Dpd_gw_qpt_4/102-9954969-3677710?v=3Dglance

BECOMES

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00005OBVT/rereadablebooksr/

That's the link for buying Chelsea Quinn Yarbro's Madelaine vampire novel in Microsoft Reader format.

Or like this:
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00006HBUJ/ref=3Dilm_rc_385137/102-9954969-3677710

BECOMES

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00006HBUJ/rereadablebooksr/

That's for Star Wars Ep 2 - ATTACK OF THE CLONES

When you've got the rereadablebooksr code added, hit return and watch your page come up again with our code in the URL and your personal amazon ID number after it - like this http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00006HBUJ/rereadablebooksr/102-9954969-3677722

From that page you can then buy and we'll get paid and it doesn't cost you money.

Oh, and there's no way we can tell WHO bought what of course - it's entirely private. The account shows us only that this item or that was purchased on this date, shipped on that date (we get paid only after shipping). If you later cancel an order, they take away our percentage. They settle up with us each quarter that we are owed over $25. It takes a lot of little sales to add up to that much! $450 worth of sales earns us about $20. But with your help, we've been getting paid.
