Hello, Boone. Nice to meet you. We're Foggy Pine Books are we're so excited to serve downtown Boone.
As you click around and explore this website, you will hopefully notice one thing: we love to read. Not only that, we want to share our love of reading with this amazing community.
We offer fiction, non-fiction, graphic novels, children's, teen, local writer's, regional information, including bestsellers and gifts for your favorite book worm. Unfortunately, at this time, we are not going to sell used books.
We will be cultivating a busy schedule of events in the coming months, which will be featured on our Events page. Right now, however, we want to introduce a program that is near and dear to our hearts: the Local Authors Spotlight. We know that breaking into the writing business is incredibly difficult. This fact, however, does not mean that your (or your friend's, mom's, boyfriend's) work isn't creative, interesting, and sellable. Think of Virginia Woolf, who created her own publishing house to be able to work independently and published her own works this way. Just like her Hogarth Press, we want to give the little person a chance. We want to read and promote the small, local authors who might otherwise have a difficult time garnering the attention of consumers, media outlets, and publishers. We desire to provide a space for the creative Appalachian voice and think that Boone will turn out some incredible works. We know there's so much talent in this area; it simply needs a light shined on it, hence Local Authors Spotlight.
So, if you know a talented local author, please send them our way. We would love to connect and discuss how best to accommodate our community artists. There is plenty of information in the Local Authors Spotlight menu, however, please feel free to contact Mary through any of the media buttons at the top left of the page.
Please note that we will not be accepting applications or payments until May 23rd. These pages are up simply for reference until that date.
Speaking of Monday, MAY 23rd this will be our first day open at 444 W. King St, Boone, NC. We hope that you will be patient with us as we work out the kinks that many small businesses face in the beginning of operation. Please let us know how we can improve your book buying experience. We will be hosting a Grand Opening Party on Friday, June 3rd.
Can't wait to meet you, fellow readers of Boone!
